Absolutely debatable.
Drew Doughty, that's not a knock on Quick, Kopitar or Brown, but Doughty was flawless from the first game to the last of the playoffs, I mean flawless might not even be the best word he controlled the games like no other player in the entire playoffs, Lidstromesque.

The next Jack Johnson:

Quote:
84. Nick Ebert, Defense, Windsor-OHL

Ebert was one the main disappointments of the 2012 draft season after coming in with years of anticipation and high expectations. People in the industry have been hearing praise about Ebert since he was 14-15 and after his big rookie year last season he was expected to be a lock for the top 10. First the good about him: Ebert is a high-end skater who has a very strong stride and can get to a pretty dangerous top speed with one or two push-offs. He's also agile and smooth with his edge work showing good mobility in all directions. He has a big shot from the point that can flash high-end in that department as well. Ebert is more of a puck-rusher than a puck-mover as well. He has a decent frame and on occasion will land crushing blows. Now for the bad: much has been made of the "With or without you", taking only Ebert with Ryan Ellis out of the equation. Ebert was looked to early on as the go-to man on the back-end and that just didn't work. Ebert's decision-making is replacement level as he simply makes too many bad reads. He's a turnover machine with the puck who goes out of position at times to hit on defense and really hurts his team too much. Ebert got better as the year went on, but he had way too many bad games throughout the course of the OHL season. He has upside and is worth a mid-round pick, but he looks like a long-term project currently.

King is a 4th rounder ? Nolan is a 7th rounder. King had almost more Goals than PHX entire roster in the series.

Those Kids were awesome, and a big reason the lineup started to play well.
Yes those kids played very well, but didnt make the difference, neither did those 6 minutes a game from Nolan.

Sorry but Ebert is all name. Got a lot of help playing with Ryan Ellis. Questions about work ethic, hockey IQ, and ability to put up numbers as an offensive defenseman don't bode well for him.
