Simply my favorite sleeper during the year. I think he is very good value at this spot.

41. Frankie Corrado - Defenseman - Sudbury Wolves
Corrado is one of the more interesting defenseman eligible for 2011, in my opinion. He's definitely a project, but he's a project that could pay off big in the future should his development take the right course. Once paired with fellow draft eligible defenseman Justin Sefton, the two of them really saw great improvements in their game. By the end of the season, they were probably Sudbury's top pairing. Corrado is a high risk player. He's a very good skater who has explosive straight ahead speed, which makes him a very dangerous player when leading the rush. He's also a physical player who loves to catch guys with their head down, entering the zone. But he can be prone to frustration offensively and will force passes up ice to make things happen. He's also a work in progress defensively and has lapses where he fails to tie up his man, or gets exposed/outworked along the wall. But the intangibles are there. He reminds me a lot of Jesse Blacker in his draft season, and we all know how well he's progressed throughout his OHL career.

Reminds me of PK Subban or even Bieksa. Good pick!

I'm liking what I'm hearing so far. Sounds like he needs some work, but the potential is there.

He's a good friend of mine, i just talked to him and he's really excited. You have a great pick here, on of the best sleepers in the draft. He will be something special and he is a really nice guy.

Interesting pick. Like it better than most of the other ones today.

Like that he has skating ability, talent, and some grit. Obviously the issue would seem to be a smallish defender who needs defensive work, which isn't usually the best formula.

But can see some upside there.

Come on. He's 6 feet tall and will play at over 200 pounds. That's only "smallish" in 2001.

Seems pretty excited to be drafted by the Canucks on twitter.

He also got the green men bump, which in the twitter world is equal to the Colbert bump.
