"Hockey's futures" indeed. Give the guy a break, he had a tough year. Have you seen monahan play much?
Staal isn't anywhere near the third line, regardless of who we draft. Our 18 year old will play no matter what, because we are who we are. Doesn't mean that player even belongs in the NHL yet. We need to lay off the draft kool aid around here. I agree our pick will be the third line center, but them getting that spot even over skinner is questionable.
Going into his year every team in the league would think Jordan would be a great second line center. At times this year he was. Skinner dragged him down as much as the other way around, and don't get me started about Dwyer. Why you guys think jstaal is crap after one shortened season is beyond me.
And yes, I watched 5-10 Ottawa's games and all of their Playoff run last year. He has great playmaking skills, one if the reasons he was voted 2nd best playmaker in his OHL conference by the coaches of the league.
