Boston fan, eh?

I can see Jaskin being a Kunitz type of guy.

been lots of fun watching him in Jets camp - best hands in camp and can do everything at full speed

going to add Jimmy Lodge to the list - highly skilled but also needs to fill out that frame

Well all of those prospects that were named pretty much all have first line talent...

andreas johnson is the most skilled guy the leafs have drafted in a while, based simply on offensive talents.

he actually has the skating to boot and a stocky frame which is nice.

but he could just be another sondre olden he busted rather quickly, as much as i really liked his vision and parts of his play with the otters. he was a PP asset.

Lowry, Petan and Stransky are the ones that stick out for me in the WHL.

If you mean offensive production, sure, okay, but I don't think they really have similar games.

Maybe, but he will most likely be converted to wing at the NHL level. Tanguay will be gone in a couple of years at most and there will be a spot open. With the Avs needing D it is likely that's where they spend the majority of their cap space and guys like Sgarbossa on cheap contracts could be important once they're ready to contend.

He's older yes. But that's because he played NCAA. In terms of pro hockey this was only his second year in the ahl. I think he's 23-24, but not like he's some ahl vet

This is a bit of a longshot, but I think Dan Catenacci (Sabres' 3rd rounder in 2011) has a shot. He's a bit small, but could be one of the faster guys in the league and has a feisty game. It will be interesting to see what he can do in Rochester this year. More likely a 2nd or 3rd liner, but he's shown an ability to put up some points.

These would be my picks. Both of these guys will good, Im sure of it. Was expecting to come here and be the only one pumping Sgarbossa's tires, but apperently he's not all that unknown judging by this thread

Not sure how much of a name he's made for himself, but based on other names in this thread I would say 4th rounder Gaudreau makes a case for himself.

Still a longshot but as far as boom-or-bust players go he's looking like the prototypical player right now. Top 6 offensive role or not in the NHL. Whether he'll end up like Boston College alumni and small stature Brian Gionta and have several high scoring seasons or Boston College short player alumni Nathan Gerbe and be bought out by the time he's 24 is up in the air.

25 next month and never made a bad Oilers squad the last three years. He is into AHL vet territory, hard to break through that late and become a first liner.

I really like the Sgarbossa pick, kid has scored everywhere he's played, great undrafted player (I still have no idea why he was traded with McGinn for not much of a return).

Palat is my favorite prospect, but I don't see him as a top line guy.

100% with you on Kucherov, though.
