As always, thanks for reading. I welcome any comments or questions you might have.

Great read, thanks.

Tiffoli is an interesting prospect, good scorer, strong hockey sense, skating needs help...reminds me of a certain LW we drafted during the purple and gold era.

No. There are a lot of guys who are either more developed then these guys, or don't have the upside. Take Gravel for example, not much upside there.

Did you not hear McKenzie after the pick talking about how raw he is and that he is a project?

Forbort is a tough guy to project because right now, he's mostly size and skating. He's a similar prospect to Tyler Myers, in that physically, he's got a lot to offer, but his game has a ways to go. He hasn't shown much offense yet but scouts are saying he's capable, he's not that physical but he's got the size to crush people, etc. It's going to take good coaching and a consistent effort from him to put it all together, but he could end up being a number one defenseman (or two, on the Kings at least).

Hopefully we get lucky with that one

Which is why I am THRILLED that he is going to be a Fighting Sioux.
