Voted Sweatt. I feel like he COULD make a role for himself as a 3rd line defensive winger. He's got the speed and defensive responsibility. I see a Richard Park style player. (I haven't seen a TON of him live, but is that a fair comparison?)

Went with Sweatt.

Going with Hutton next, based on nothing but a 'gut' feeling. Call it a bit of Colbert truthiness.

I see Sweatt as a poor man's Raymond. Which I don't think will be good enough to stick in the NHL.

I see Sweatt more like Hansen...

In that Raymond never goes to the next but has a good/accurate shot.

Sweatt/Hansen have almost no hands but can forecheck and drive the net.

If Sweatt develops a decent defensive game I see him as a potential Hansen replacement.

Just play them both on the same checking line alongside a speedy checking center (Lapierre). Would drive the opposition crazy ...

What, not an systematically oppressed man's Steve Kariya?

Anyway, I thought about Price (decent 2-way and right-handed D), Sweatt (fast, smallish, and questionable offensive ceiling), Grenier (big, but not gritty), and Hutton (good reports from junior program, size, leadership)...

Went with Price.

Ben Hutton, Canucks 5th round pick 2012

http://bangordailynews.com/2011/12/2...-next-season/#

Quote:
“He’s the best defenseman in our league, by far. He’s like a man among boys out there,” said Kemptville coach and general manager Pat Malloy. “He oozes with pro potential. His skill level is so high.”

“He’s big and his puck skills and hands are off the charts,” added Malloy. “He’s a one-man forecheck breaker, he has a good shot and he’s an above-average skater. He plays 35 minutes a game and plays important minutes against the other team’s top line.”

Malloy said Hutton, who is the team captain, is also a first-class individual.

“He’s a straight arrow from a good family who will do anything to win and will do anything for the team,” said Malloy. “He’s a dream to coach.”

There's not much out there regarding Price, but i found one quote from an opposing Coach (Union) that praises Price.

Quote:
Colgate’s top line is centered by playmaker Chris Wagner and his 23 assists, which are second only to Quinnipiac’s Matthew Peca in league play. The sophomore is flanked by Joe Wilson and Austin Smith, the nation’s leading goal-scorer, who added his 36th goal of the season Sunday against the Bobcats.

It’s the line that’s garnered most of the attention this season, but those who’ve seen this team, including Union coach Rick Bennett, know there’s more to the Raiders than just those three.

“They have a lot of depth,” Bennett said. “Jeremy Price is one of the best defensemen in our league. He’s a hybrid-type player and he’s tough to play against.”

Colgate’s aggressive attack often leaves Price and the rest of the defense to fend for themselves.

I did vote for Price, but I feel Hutton is capable of a better NCAA career. Too soon to tell for me though.

Sweatt is 6'0, 205 lbs...

Same size as Ryan O'Reilly, a tad heavier....

Similar to Hansen (6'1, 195...)

... Put it this way, he's the same height as Raymond, but weighs 20 lbs more.

If Sweatt were gritty he would be on our 4th line right now at the very least. He's definitely a fringe NHL player type, who just doesn't have a role on our team considering the depth we have in our top 9 (a ton of 3rd line tweeners), and how we have our 4th line set up (gritty).
