No way he's still available at 55th, he's a late riser and his upsides are just too good.
Totally agree. I see Jokinen as more of a Travis Zajac. Don't think he has that mean attitude that MaxPac but he does and will have some time to build his frame and maybe become one.
But this guy will be picked in the 1st round. In 2009, maybe not, this year, absolutely.
He's part of my list as our 1st pick, and you know what, I'm not even sure he'll be there. His 54th spot from CSS makes no sense, there's at least 20 guys that would be behind him in my armchair scout opinion....
this guy is awesome with Gatineau, is still undrafted and would fit in our system (I think)
There was a thread on the prospect board about Byron and some people suggested he was riding Giroux's coat tail... Byron doesn't really and has some very nice skills. Pistilli, on the other hand, does look better because he plays with Giroux. Mind you, he does have nice size and can finish but I'm worried about his skating and overall abilities. He was overlooked in the last draft and I think he might be a good candidate for a try out for the prospect camp. However, I'm not sure I'd spend a pick on him.
