Heard Lucic's name in there as a possible comparison.

Beta error.....everyone expected someone else to post about the trade up so no one did it instead.

I am happy with the pick, but I don't know much about him. I'll wait to see what he is like before I pass judgement on this kid

You have to think Burke thought he'd be gone by 25 so he moved up.

I'm happy with the pick. Welcome to Toronto, Biggs! Hope you do BIGG things for us.

Bio of Biggs, fav team is the Leafs:

• A unanimous choice as captain in 2010-11, Biggs had 28 points (17-11--28) in 48 games competing in the USHL for the U.S. Under-18 National Team Development Program.

• Biggs has represented the U.S. in two Under-18 World Championships, winning gold in 2010 and 2011 -- he scored the overtime goal, his second of the game, in the semifinal against Canada propelling the U.S. to the gold medal game in 2011. He also won gold at the 2009 World Junior ‘A’ Challenge in Timmins, Ontario, scoring both goals in a 2-1 win over Team Ontario in the final.

• His father, Don Biggs, was drafted in 1983 by Minnesota (156th overall) and in 1987 he played 11 games with the Philadelphia Flyers. After a successful stint with the Cincinnati Cyclones in the IHL, his jersey (No. 22) was retired. He is currently the head coach and GM for the Junior ‘A’ Queen City Steam, in the Central States Hockey League.

• He wears number 22 because it is the same number that his father wore and he will attend Miami University, located 40 minutes from his current home, in the fall of 2011.

• Prior to joining the NTDP, Biggs had 40 goals and 87 points in 72 games with the Toronto Jr. Canadiens AAA team in 2008-09.

• One of his favorite movies is Youngblood starring Rob Lowe, Patrick Swayze, and featuring his father as an on-ice stuntman for the film.

Burke type player, so it's not a surprising pick.

Guess have to believe in our scouts.

Brief rundown of the usual scouting reports on him:
Big, strong, physical, power forward, above average skater, above average shot, not much of a playmaker, hockey sense is questionable, most seem to feel he'll need strong linemates in to produce offensively at the NHL level.
Probable 3rd liner, if things all break right he may be a 2nd liner.


Hoping for Puempel at #25
