I'm very excited for Lindberg. He has a real shot at the big club next year.
Skjei isn't a sexy prospect, but I very easily see him as an NHL'er. He got compared to Bret Hedican at the draft last year. I think that's bang on. Positionally sound defenseman that skates well.
St. Croix is the most intriguing of them all. Broke out the year he was drafted. Point totals stayed about the same this past season because he was asked to focus more on his two way play. He was Edmonton's best playoff skater. I can see him potentially as high as an NHL 2nd liner. Power play specialist at worst. Righty shot. Despite myth, he's actually not badly sized at 6 feet and 190 pounds.
