I think Clutterbuck is his bottom tier, but he's got the potential to be much better.
How can anyone be upset with this selection if 'at worst' he becomes a Cal Clutterbuck clone? I really like this selection!

Zibanejad: 50-10-8-18 (SEL), 42-6-6-12 (J20), 22-4-4-8 (J18)

2. He had better offensive numbers in his league team on his Draft year and 2 years prior than Burakovsky. Burakovsky had a big offensive year and better numbers 1 year prior.

3. He's more than 6 months younger than Wennberg and Lindholm, and 3 months younger than Burakovsky.

4. In the tapes I watched in International Competitions, his skating and stickhandling were close to the other 3 sweedish top offensive prospects this year. To really distinguish him from the others I would have needed to have a bunch of viewings in their respective leagues... So I had to take the word of the skating reports.
nice again. I think it was you who posted his stats compared to F.Forsberg and they were very comparable. Even if he doesn't develop his offensive game he could still be very effective but man if he does? we could have a huge steal on our hands.

I wasn't the one who compared him with Forsberg. However his numbers in Sweden in the past 3 years are quite fine. See above Zibanejad... I could also add points comparison for Silvferberg v DelaRose those same 3 years prorated in same leagues (12vs16, 28vs20, 18vs23). And DelaRose is more than 6 months younger than Silfverberg was his draft year.

Heights measured at Combine:
-De La Rose: 6'2.5
-Sean Monahan: 6'2.5
Other "Big Bodies" measured at Combine:
-Dickinson: 6'1.5
-Nastasiuk: 6'1.5

Why didn't we take Zykov here? All the reports had him as being awesome and LA traded up to get him. Surprised we didn't take him at the 34th spot.

I doubt he will develop Plekanec's shot and passing skills, but a lot of people said that about Plekanec himself.

But he doesn't just have size, he uses it.

I like but don't love the pick, but I will probably love the player. In a swing for the fences kind of draft, it's probably good we went with a "safe" pick who still has good upside. Everyone here loves intangibles, and here you go.

I'm still shocked we passed on Zykov twice. He will be a beast for LA IMO. But I guess Bergevin ordered that size comes first.

Meh, I'm not that high on Zykov. Reminds me of AK46. I expect him to be an NHLer, but not a guy you need to draft.

3rd straight draft with a Swede ?

About time we use that market.

My favourite pick of the draft. Who I wanted at 36 from the beginning. Glad Timmins was just as high on him

Nice that the Habs are starting to draft some Swedish players. Im pretty pleased with this pick. And picking Sebastian Collberg last year i think could be a really good choice. I was hoping for Gustav Rydahl in one of the later picks. Thats a player i really like. A strong player that plays with a lot of speed. But hey, maybe its only me. After all no team picked him!

Hopefully he will be even better after this season in SHL, so we can draft him next year!

EDIT: Link to his profile on Eliteprospects: http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=33357

Looks like he could be a captain of an NHL team some day. That's the feeling I get.

That too.

His back check and physicality in that little video speaks volumes imo.

This guy is going to be an awesome player whether it's on the 3rd line or 2nd line.

Met him at the draft, he signed my ticket. Good luck with him. Not that it means anything but he was a nice guy. Had what I think was his brother there too. His GF was smoking hot lol

Certainly a possibility, it made me laugh all the Laffs fans on Facebook who thought Gauthier was a physical center. They're in for a surprise.

lol man how lucky can we get

we draft a 6"2 hard working and somewhat physical SWEDE... and people are still not happy..? i dont know what people expected with this pick outside of round 1, but this player is FARRR from a "floater" it looks like , hes always skating, always moving, and LOVED watching him kill those penalties, man what a pick

the swedes NEVER stop working hard, so i love to add another one, we hit a home run with collberg last year and it seems like everyone forgot

I've always liked Jacob, I just thought of him as more of a late 2nd rounder, as I question the offensive upside. Could develop into a fantastic 3rd liner though.

He looks like a Swedish Eller. We need tenacious forecheckers to open lanes for the smaller guys. We've got snipers in our depth pool already guys like this is what we've been missing.
