Does sound a bit like Collberg... another value pick for the spot in the draft. Can't complain... even if there are other players I'm more familiar with and liked better only from familiarity, you can't really argue when you're obviously getting skill value that is above the draft pick slot.
I really don't know about this pick. Whats his upside? Top6 I hope?
Definitely. He is top-6 or bust. Absolutely no other NHL role except top-6. Very skilled but very weak. Plays like a bigger man though, and doesn't shy away from contact. He had some concussion issues after being headhunted by Jarkko Ruutu.
Good pick, finally someone with some kind of offensive game. Don't mind De La Rose at all, not sure how I feel about Fucale's selection, although I'm leaning on not hating it. Still would've prefered Zykov over McCarron at this point, that kid has character AND a nice shot.
