I don't think he gets passed the Habs, for one.

Not sure I'm crazy about the Spezza comparison.

He was a lot more aggressive in using his size in the second half of the season. By the end of the year, he was really starting to become a big factor in chasing down loose pucks and battling along the boards. He was also being more assertive in front of the net. While he's definitely a stronger playmaker than finisher, I think he'll likely develop into more of a workhorse type center who'll be strong enough to play down low.

Spezza may have size, but he's tremendous with the puck on his stick and not as great without it. Where as I see Scheifele as the type of center who'll be the workman of a scoring line, the guy who does all the little things away from the puck that create scoring chances. That's not saying I expect him to develop a huge mean streak and become a serious power center, but he's very smart and very crafty. Almost like a Steve Rucchin.

from a stats point of view, he's created as much value offensively as anyone else when it comes to CHL prospect except for Nugent-Hopkins. He projects well defensively as well. Only drawback I have is that he's played on poor teams so far whether in the OHL or in the OJAHL. I think he projects as a David Legwand type.

Ekblad should help him out next season.

Scheifele leading TM Canada at the U18s. The big man showed his wheels on the second goal in this CAN highlight package vs FIN.

He looked decent enough against Sweden today, too.

Is this guy similar to Ryan Johansen at all? I haven't seen him play so I can't really make a judgement but I'm just comparing stats, size and the few scouting reports I have read about Scheifele. If I recall correctly wasn't Johansen ranked at a similar spot this time last year?

I hope the Bruins draft him at 9th if Mika is gone.

very successful rookie season and now tourney.

At this pace he would go top 5 in next years draft

The 2012 draft? Isn't that draft projected to be a better one than the 2011 draft? I have read comparisons with the 2008 draft, even the 2003 class. Yakupov, Ryan Murray, Alex Galchenyuk, Martin Frk, Dumba, Grigorenko, Nick Ebert, etc.

I am hoping one of the two Marks (McNeill and Scheifele) becomes a Leaf on draft day

thats the name that came to my mind while watching Scheifele at the u-18 so far. i would say he has been more impressive than McNeill. Look to have more natural skill than McNeill

I like him a lot. Like nhldraftvideo said, his hands are better than McNeil's and he plays a big man's game. Good head for the game as well.

I think he could be an excellent #2 center.

Those were some super soft hands behind the net on the tying goal today. A lot of players would have flubbed it. Then he got it back to Murray and scored the goal. It was a real eyebrow raising play. I think it's pretty clear he has better hands than McNeil.

Anybody wanna take a guess where he'll be picked now? I'd say he was in 15-25 area before the U18, but now I think he's a legit top 15 prospect. too bad though..

Severely underestimated this guy because he put up points on a crappy team. Really showed he can lead the charge, use his body and has super-soft hands in these u-18's. I'm now a fan.

Welcome to the darkside. Glad your on board mate!

I've been championing him to be picked with LAK's pick. I may even prefer him over McNeill after seeing how good his hands are.

So who is the better player? Him or McNeill because as an Oiler fan, i'd be happy with either but i think that the Oilers have a better chance of getting Schiefele without having to trade up. I see that he is listed at 6'3 175 lbs, does he gets pushed around a lot because of his skinny frame?

lol what? It's Shy-fell-ee. The "fell" part can sound like "full" when said quickly. I have no clue where "chef field" comes in.

Depends where LAs pick ends up...I doubt either of those two are around after 16 or 17. And it sounds silly to base this on U18 viewings, but unless McNeill has some hidden offensive ability, I can see Scheifele going before McNeill. Easily.

Mark Scheifele

Did anyone see a lot of the Barrie Colts this year? I'm looking for some insight on Mark Scheifele and what type of player he is and may become.

ISS has him at #29 in their most recent rankings. Woodlief had this to say about him after the U-18:

http://www.usatoday.com/sports/hocke...ne-draft_N.htm

Quote:
•Red Line has just returned from the all-important World Under-18 Championships, where players can make or break their draft status, and from a draft perspective the big winner — hands down — was Barrie's Mark Scheifele. The big center was rather hamstrung without quality players to work alongside in Barrie all year, but was a beast pivoting Team Canada's top line at the tournament in Germany. His great hands and skills were on display as he racked up six goals and created dangerous chances nearly every shift.

As a first-year major junior player on a poor club, Scheifele had some growing pains and a lot of learning to do this season. He's also nowhere near fully developed physically at 6-2 and just 175 pounds, but he has a great frame to fill out and should be a real load to handle once he adds about 20-25 pounds of upper body strength. In fact, we think so highly of his upside that we've moved him from just outside the first round on our rankings to a point where he's knocking on the door of the top 10 overall. At Red Line, we look for prospects whose development curve is headed straight upward – and Scheifele is one such player in this year's field.

edit: whoops, did a search but the other thread didn't come up. MOD - feel free to delete or move this.
