Found this in another thread. Seems pretty relevant here

"At Red Line, we believe this kid could be the biggest/best sleeper of the entire draft. Prince George is so far off the beaten path teams don’t even travel there for WHL games, much less BCHL contests, so he gets zero exposure. But this kid is big, mean, aggressive, nasty, and guess what… he can score too. Does the dirty work in the corners, bangs bodies and wins battles, and loves to initiate heavy contact. Powerful stride with great balance and gets leverage on his hits. Has surprisingly soft hands and puck skills with playmaking ability. Creates lots of space for smaller teammates and makes everyone braver."

"top ten in four of the physical tests at the NHL Combine in advance of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. With the seventh largest wing span measurement of 77.75 inches, Khaira also showed his strength in the bench press finishing fifth with 12 reps of 150 lbs and also eighth for strength lifting 9.1 lb/lb of body weight a full 4 points above the Combine average. In the test of upper body power, Khaira was fourth throwing a 4 kg ball 232 inches."

Michagan tech coaches “I told our coaches before the weekend I thought JJ (Jujhar) made huge strides in how much better he was. He’s at a different level right now. We’re playing sophomores and freshmen against other team’s seniors, grizzled vets, and they’re doing a great job.”

“We see him as a big time power forward. He skates really well, very good down low, strong on the puck, has good vision and great offensive instincts."

I honestly think Joey LaLeggia could be a huuuge steal. Leads NCAA D-men in points currently. Has put up similar point totals to J. Schultz so far in his career.
Khaira is also looking good for the Oilers.

As a Flyers fan I'm hopeful for Taylor Leier. Also I think the Rangers got a gem with Nieves.

Yeah, Hudon is a bit streaky, but he's not suppose to be a offensive player at NHL level. He will be a very good 3rd line two-way center that will put some points from time to time.

@5Rings+Beer....regarding Khaira...."Prince George is so far off the beaten path teams don't even travel there for WHL games, much less BCHL contests"....this is where it helps to have your head scout, Stu MacGregor, living in BC, Kelowna specifically. he'll take the goat paths to obscure minor league teams to look at a player he thinks can be a player down the road when other scouts can't seem to be bothered. i don't care if most of the Oilers are from BC as long as these guys can help us win a cup down the road.

I'm still shocked even the Habs let Hudon get to the 4th round. I think they had a great draft and I'm unaware of who they selected besides Galch, Collberg, Thrower and Hudon.

Bozon was a great pick as well for the habs

Ryan Olsen is having a pretty good year. 20 points in 25 games. 6th rounder by Winnipeg.

He also shows he has the skills to be a bottom 6 forward.

He got to the 5th round, so did brendan gallagher in 2010. Hopefully they pan out

Scott Kosmachuk for the Jets is looking really good this year. I believe he went in the 3rd round.

Kid only has 11 points in 24 games this year. There's this infatuation with what he could have been but with his injuries and his junior career so far, getting him 92nd was hardly a steal.

Naming anyone from your favourite team shouldn't be allowed. With that being said, Bozon, Vail and Hudon actually seem like pretty good picks.

^i'm sure other teams knew of him, but either didn't think the Oilers did or didn't think he'd be taken near the top of the 3rd round.

Out of Sweden, three picks really stand out thus far.

Preds' Görtz and Caps' Djoos, both have really established themselves in the SEL earlier than expected and are both on the 25-man roster that will be cut to 23 for the WJC. Pretty good for 6th/7th rounders.

Mikael Wikstrand for the Sens have also outprogressed his 7th round billing, scoring tons for Mora of the SEL-2 and a lock to be a PPQB on the WJC team.

He was beast in my NHL 12 dynasty, one of the top shutdown D-men. Obviously a good predictor of his future career!

I wanted Tampa to draft Seth Griffith really bad.. he went fairly late too. He has gotten some chemistry with Namestnikov in the Juniors. I think he will become a regular top six player. I also think Nikita Gusev could be a really good player, we'll just have to see how time plays out.

Can't help but think Pageau is amongst the later round steals as well.

Which late rounders does everyone like at this point?

3rd rouder Shayne Gostisbehere is probably the Flyers top prospect on D. Made the WJC. Had 26 points in 36 games in college as a d-man.

3rd rounder for Nashville Brendan Leipsic had 120 points in 68 games in the WHL...up from 58 points last year.

not fair to bump it then to mention Pageau, who was a 2011 draft choice...not 2012
