What prospects from the 1st round, 2nd round or even 3rd round later, who you would compare them to.

** Give me your opinions, Here's mine.

-Darnell Nurse: Smaller version of maybe a Shea Weber?

Actually, now that I think about it if you rewatched the entire draft you'd probably get a player comparison from those guys for just about every one of em

I don't think he's as chippy as Roenick was, but he's an even better skater. I do still think Barkov and Drouin are the two best players in this draft.

I don't really see the MacK and Stamkos comparison. I see MacKinnon as a Hall who plays center.

Reminds me of a smaller version of Eric Daze. Their styles are very similar.

To me MacKinnon is a mix between Hall and Seguin

And Nurse is a mix between Weber/Pronger/Lidstrom

not seeing the mackinnon/stamkos/giroux comparisons at all, im thinking more along the lines of taylor hall, both very fast elite potential and uses their speed to crash bodies as well
