Scouting Reports

I haven't had a chance to watch the tourney as I don't get the NHL Network.

How about we get a thread going with nothing but scouting reports on each player?

I love these threads. They are always extremely informative.

If you want to provide strengths, weaknesses, and a comment section on a few players on any team, please reply.

Leon Draisaitl - Possible 2014 First-Rounder

Strenghts:
Very very strong and intelligent play on both ends of the ice, seems to have a great hockey sense, and has shown a lot of skill with and without the puck on a pretty weak team. There have been moments where he has been pretty fast on the skates, which leads me to..

Weaknesses:
He has to improve his skating, while he can be quick, he should work on his first steps, i compared him to Tobias Rieder, and Rieder was way faster when he took off.
Another weakness is probably his physical game, but it is his first year in the WHL, and he's 17 now, so he still has some time to fix that..

Team Sweden: Mikael Wikstrand (D, Ottawa 7th round pick, 2012)

Strengths: Really skilled defenseman with great tape-to-tape passes. Has a very good shot and good vision. Smooth skater for his size, too. Great on the powerplay.

Weaknesses: Could play sometimes a bit more physically and work on his defensive game.
