Everyone knows of my concern for Ekblad. Even though both have a hunched style, Scherbak is way more explosive and a better skater than Ekblad.

It's a non-issue.

I see Kovalev in there but Voracek is a much better comparison, good stuff TRX.

David is the type of player that we need. A dynamic winger that can make plays and score on his own. Hopefully he will comeback 100% from his injury. That was a nasty one.
That injury scares me, gotta hope he comes back and plays fearless like he did before. Open space is crucial to this guys game.

Miller will be a player. So will Skjei. One bad hockey player after another.
Yeah a #15 player in a draft has no shot at being an impact player

And I agree, should be going American/Swede for years since our core is exactly that and has been for awhile. Should have had that mentality when passing on Carlson for Del Z. Or in 2010 whena few good American players were on the board.
