LW JASON WILSON

Tough, banging winger projected to play on the bottom two lines as a physical player who can hopefully add some offense.

"Wilson is going to surprise some people. He can really play.”
-Gordie Clark

______________________________________________

D SAMUEL NOREAU

Huge, hard-hitting defenseman who is a decent skater for his size.

"Very mobile and very skilled [Samuel Noreau is] 6-5 and really tough."
- Gordie Clark

"Noreau is a 6-5, 215-pound tough-as-nails punisher who doesn’t have much in the way of high-end skill, but has the size and nastiness to be a shutdown guy in time. He’s not a bad skater, though needs to work on his lateral movement and pivots/turns like many big players on D. This dude can really fight, too. With his size and strength, he ragdolls guys and stands in and throws them against the tougher comers/enforcers in the QMJHL."
- Bruins Draft Watch
______________________________________________

LW TOMMY GRANT

"He is able to really control the puck. This guy never wants to dump it in. He's very good with his hands in carrying it up the ice and making plays. He has some offense to his game in passing the puck and carrying the puck... It's just about adjusting the pace of his game to the pro game, and that's why it was important to get him into Connecticut at the end of the year. Now he's seen the size and the strength of the players at that level, and he knows what he has to do to over the summer to be ready to come back for his first year of pro."
- Gordie Clark

"The Connecticut coaches saw the offensive upside, and they saw some speed and some hands. And for an offensive guy, he was good in his own end. He's also very competitive, and they were pretty excited about that."
- Jeff Gorton

______________________________________________

G SCOTT STAJCER

Put up good stats behind a bad team. Good size and good at controlling rebounds, but needs to improve his positioning.

"We had him scheduled to go earlier in that draft, but our scouts read the draft and we figured we could maybe grab some other guys and still get Scott. In the end it doesn't matter where you get him. For a fifth-round pick he's got a heck of a shot at the NHL."
- Gordie Clark
______________________________________________

G CAMERON TALBOT

Goalie with good size on a weak team. Did for his college team what Lundqvist did in his early days: keep a bad team in the game, giving them a chance. Dominated at every level he played at, though he was always in rather weak places (OPJHL, College Hockey America). Almost defeated the top ranked Miami-Ohio while backstopping the very weak UofA team.

"He has size and the athleticism we like, and he was able to keep a very weak team competitive... I told our scout I expected them to get spanked in the game, but they won," said Clark. "They won it and got to go to the NCAA tournament, so I sent another couple guys in to watch him. They got beat in that second game, but in both games, they were in it... Benoit (Allaire) really likes him."
- Gordie Clark

______________________________________________

D PETER CERESNAK

A very physical defenseman who needs to improve his skating and his positioning. Hits everything that moves. The Rangers traded just to draft him.

Sam Noreau. Big, crusing defenseman who is a decent skater. That seems like value to me, especially when you compare him to people who are at most hoping to be 4th liners.

Add Jyri Niemi. Established himself as a solid Hartford defenseman at the age of 20. He's very young and has a lot of years to keep improving, and he is starting from a good base. I think he has real hope to make it some day.

That said, I'm still picking Noreau for the reasons I stated above.

Stajcer had a ridiculous first half of the season before he got hurt. I realize it's s small chance, but if it's indicative of where he can be when he gets his game figured out, he's got a future. And that's enough to go by at this point.

Once he gets added I'll be voting the two defensemen picked this year.

Add nobody - the guys who should fill out the 22-25 slots are already on the board.

No, keep adding. The guys who are added to the poll, but not chosen will be Honorable Mentions. And honestly, I like Niemi over several guys on the board now.

I like Stajcer as well though and it's quite possible he turns out better. Both of them are destined to be backups if they ever make it.

Yeah, the silly mobile view doesn't let you vote in polls. I know I can switch to the desktop view and do it that way, but hey, I'm posting from my phone...I'm lazy.

Make sure to vote. Polling is very close in later rounds because there are fewer votes and they is little consensus. Most of the remaining rounds will be won by 2-4 votes.
