You have kids that show maturity beyond their age and then you have others that act the way you expect for their age. Those two are pretty good examples of the latter where they exhibit talent that you can clearly see on the ice, but there are flaws.

Josh Ho-Sang has a ton of puck skills that reminds me of Mike Riberiro. He can dangle and make deft passes, but it sometimes feels like he's playing by himself.

That could very well be a product of playing on a very weak Windsor Spitfires team because, to be fair, Kopitar showed flashes of that early in his career as well and I always thought that was from trying to carry a Slovenian team on his back.

Ho-Sang also has a very strong sense of self-confidence that comes across as arrogance to some. It certainly does not mesh with the more humble cliche that hockey players and executives expect and I find it's more akin to what you see in football and basketball players. I don't necessarily see it as being bad so much as unique, and sometimes that alone freaks people out when the concept of team and unifying structure gets spammed.

Anthony DeAngelo is a New Jersey kid that has a mouth that gets him in trouble. Suspended two or three times this season for the stuff that he blurts out before he can clamp his teeth together shut.

DeAngelo is really talented offensively in a weak draft overall for defenseman, however, so he might not be as hurt for his perceived negatives as Ho-Sang.

Dude, even more recent than that, Michael Nylander and Sami Kapanen's kids are getting drafted this year. Those guys aren't even fully retired from hockey yet!

Only a matter of time before Brad Doty Jr. gets drafted. 17 years away. To the women's NHL.

And Dustin Brown may get a kid in the NHL, just due to the number of kids...if he ends
up with 11 children, the odds are pretty good.

I have no idea but there seems to be a lot of that these days. That and the first names of all these players nowadays are all what used to be last names. "Carter", "Hayden", "Reid", "Connor" and the ever popular "Brayden". Seriously, how man kids were named Brayden before 1990? Its like a bunch of chicks bought the same baby names book in the early 90's.

There are 22 prospects with ties to former NHL players.

Sami Kapanen has an 18 year old kid? Was he born when Sami was 15?

You have to think unless Florida thinks who they want will be gone this will be one of the best offers they get. 3 first round picks including one at 6.

Jeebus.

Knew about Lemieux and MacInnis too but had no clue about a baby Turgeon. It's like my hockey cards had babies.

I'm shocked but it's being reported they said that's not enough.

Agree. Can't think of anyone else giving up 3 1st rounders.
