The issue in the NHL for scorers is unless you are blazing fast, you have to go into traffic to score, something Mantha doesn't like to do. He may still end up an 30 goal NHLer but it's not a lock.
Im Val d'Or Louick Marcotte and Samuel Henley provide plenty of chaos for the defenders, leaving Mantha to work his magic. If he had been there when the Habs picked who knows? No good GM is going to play his hand after the draft is over.
