Pulock vs Nurse vs Morrisey

What order do you think these guys will go at the draft? What do you think their upside is?

For me:

Nurse
Pulock
Morrisey

Morrissey is a tier below the other two, he reminds me of a Jordan Leopold type player in the NHL.

If I have to choose between the 3 it's Nurse no question.

Can someone who's watched any of these guys briefly describe their games/strengths?



From descriptions, Pulock sounds like a cerebral defensive defenseman with a fantastic shot, who can also be somewhat of a playmaker - maybe even a PPQB?

Nurse sounds like a physical all-round dman, more defensive than offensive. Will his offense translate to the NHL at all?

Morrissey is intriguing because of his dynamic skillset, while he can also play pretty good defense, and brings a physical game. He seems like he's somewhere between Morgan Reilly and Matthew Dumba. Not as fast or dynamic as Reilly but more complete/physical/defensively sound.



Also, who is the fastest? Which of these guys will be considered "fast" at the NHL level?

Pulock- I'd classify him as an offensive D, but he is also very strong in his own zone. Not neccessarily a PPQB in the sense that he doesn't rush the puck up the ice a whole lot, but he does provide significant offense due to his skilled playmaking and his slapshot, which is the best in the CHL. I'd compare him to John Carlson.

Nurse- Massive athletic dman who use brawn more than brains to make plays, which is both an asset since he is so strong and big and fast, but also a weakness since he sometimes tries to do too much and it also may not translate as well to the NHL. I'd compare him to Erik Johnson.

Morrissey- Highest hockey IQ of the three. Makes very smart plays and knows when to use the body vs positioning, and is the most physical of the three. Probably the best puckmoving D of the 3 as well. I'd compare him to a smaller Brent Burns.

All three are pretty fast, but I'd rank it as Morrissey, Nurse, Pulock in terms of speed

Pulock
Nurse
Morrisey

I think Pulock is the sure thing. Nurse has the highest upside. Morrisey is a step below both.
