Anton Blomqvist

What do you think of Blomqvist and do you see him playing in the NHL eventually?

Same question with Oliver Gabriel. NHL potential?

At this stage it would appear that Anton is a bottom pairing/#7 type guy. He needs more time to show whether he has a skill set that would be transferred to the NHL. From what little I've seen he appears to be good sized, decent skater and willing to play the body but needs to work on transition and positioning.

I like him but I wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't make it to the NHL. He'll be in the AHL again next year and hopefully show some growth.

Doubt it for Blomqvist. Gabriel could be a 4th liner.

Blomqvist, at best, would project as a #7 or #8 guy. There's pro skill there, but is it NHL skill?

With Gabriel's work ethic and size, he could certainly be a role player for the Jackets. I'd imagine nothing more than a Derek MacKenzie type player though.
