Brayden McNabb 6'4 200 lbs shutdown defensemen. NHL prospect card says he models his game after Robyn Regehr. Nice pick.

GREAT pick in McNabb. His skating is his flaw, sounds like Myers

Strengths: Excellent size and uses it well. Rugged style and a good fighter. Underrated puck moving ability.

Weaknesses: Skating is seriously flawed. No real offensive upside.

Stock has taken a beating after disastrous showing at U-18 in Fargo. Difficulties in pivoting and backward stride have been exposed against top level competition.

Skating aside, there is a lot to like, however. Has more puck moving ability than he gets credit for. Decent PP ability at the junior level, but projects to be a pure stay-at-home guy at the next level.

Likes to play a physical style. Throws big open-ice hits and effectively uses his big size down low. Especially good at the hip check along the boards. Has a long reach and knows how to use it. Good d-zone positioning and keeps opponents to the outside. Good fighter and very willing to drop the gloves.
Nice, finally getting some nastiness into the system

Not a bad pick...a big defenseman with some offensive upside but plays a sound positional game. He'll probably take a bit before he's ready but no reason to hate on this pick.

Serious skating flaws? Trouble skating backwards? Ouch.

McNabb is very team-first and tough as hell.

Teams aren't going to be interested in Tallinder or Hecht until after July 1 when they miss out on free agents. I am not surprised in the least that they couldn't move up into the 2nd, and probably not for a lack of trying.

So if this guy pans out as expected, which would mean he reaches his potential but doesn't surpass it, what is he likely to be?

A decent 2nd pairing/A Great Third Pairing D-man? It sounds like it from what I've read here. Not bad, but his skating really has me worried. If he can't skate and/or pivot decently, he will be running around in circles like a chicken with his head chopped off. Which is why I only seeing him topping out at a decent 2nd pairing guy; it doesn't seem like he'll have the speed to wear down top lines, ever.

I still like the pick, though. How many top pairing guys do you get in the third round, anyways. He's a great addition to a young defense.

I was wondering about Vincour as well. It sounds like he has size and ability, but little production. But 4th round take the risk.

Jame made the comparison to a Brendan Witt for McNabb, and though that'd be best case scenario,it's accurate in terms of description: tough, but a ****** skater, who sticks up for teammates and plays with physicality

I'd like to go for Rajala at this point. Too much potential to pass up in the 4th round. Nevermind, Edmonton stole him.

Can we get some info on this kid for those of us who aren't really good with prospects. What type of game does he play, what position does he play, and what is his potential?

Thanks!=D

Sudbury wolves fan here, but I think Marcus Foligno is a great pick. While his offensive upside is slow coming around he competes all the time, dishes out hits and is a great teammate.

A little video showing Foligno doing what he does best. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AoKkYJdsf60
