Seth Jones :
Seth has the rare combination of skill, size and power which allows him to impact the game in multiple ways and in just about any conceivable situation. He is blessed with great athletic ability and he moves about the ice with ease and with the ability to use his skating to his advantage either defensively or offensively. He understands how to use his advantages to gain the upper hand and whether it is a skill situation or a physical situation, he's able to do it a forceful manner. He is an excellent passer who remains composed under pressure and he has a heavy and hard shot which poses considerable challenges for goalies. He takes charge on the ice in some way and the word that comes to mind when you watch him is 'unique.' A cornerstone defenceman. Comparable Style: Rob Blake
Rasmus is a bold player who takes the initiative. He plays with a confidence in his game and that allows him to make an impact. He has very good offensive skills with an excellent shot and he jumps into the attack and even initiates the attack if he feels it's necessary. He will play physical and is a big man who if he makes contact, you are fully aware as an opponent. He doesn't get rattled and his composure should not be mistaken for any type of 'laissez-faire' attitude because when the game becomes challenging and the moments important, he is ready, willing and capable of taking a leading role to make a positive difference. A player who is more than capable of being a top defenceman. Comparable Style: Brent Burns
Hägg is a rock-solid two-way defenseman who excels at both ends of the ice. At 6'2", 201-pounds, he can rush the puck and run a powerplay, yet he can also be a physical force going backwards with a strong stick and smarts.
“I’m a two-way player,” he said. “I skate with the puck well and I see the ice. My first pass is really strong and I can also jump into the play. I like to see myself as a quarterback when I have the puck out there.”
“My strengths are my skating, my work ethic and obviously I’m trying to win all my battles,” he said. “And with being big, you don’t get a lot of 6-foot-3 guys who can skate like they’re 5-foot-8 and win most of their battles. Has been compared to Pronger
An elite two-way defenseman, Pulock has high-end abilities both offensively and defensively. A very smooth skater who can carry the puck effectively, Pulock can lead the rush and score, but is a smart and steady player who gets the job done effectively in his own zone.
Clocking in at six-foot-four and 200 lbs, Zadorov is the new gem in London. A hulking two-way defender with good mobility and strength, he dominates puck battles. While quite raw, Zadarov has good upside. He reads plays well and makes good outlet passes on the offensive side of the puck.

If you watch Gretzky's bio, he credits Clarke with getting him started on setting up and playing behind the net. At 14 his coach told him to watch Clarke, and how he plays in the corners and behind the net. And with that, Gretzky started working in his office. Pretty cool.
