Benjamin Conz(2011 draft)

Benjiman Conz has been bypassed in the previous two drafts. Will he be drafted this year? I read an interesting article on Conz and why he hasn't been selected.

1 - his size...in this article they compared his size to Tim Thomas (size comparison only, don't get goofy)
2 - never been a starter...scouts not able to gauge him on a long-term platform.

Starting for a team last season that never made the play-offs, Conz had a stellar regular season and a .907 sp in the play-offs. Conz is the type of player that if he's out of position will throw his head in the way to make a save (pretty cool). In the WJC he turned heads three years running, winning best goal tender in one of those years. If I'm Tambo I take a chance on this kid with a late round selection (6 rd). Conz can steal games for your team and has a strong desire and tools to be given a chance.

He'll be taken in the late 4th/early 5th after the Gibsons, Binnington and another G.

I think teams will play the waiting game to see how far he can drop. He'll probably go in the 6th or 7th. If he's still undrafted though, he's gonna have quite a few pro contract offers on his desk the next morning.

I hope the Oilers grab him with a late pick.

A potential future pairing of Bunz & Conz .... Win?

I believe he was only eligible last year, but I'd LOVE to see the Oilers take him with a 4th or 5th because he has the potential to be a #1

IIRC, any team that drafts him this year won't be able to keep his rights after his contract with his current NLA team expires.
