    Here's a guy that isn't getting talked about much at all. Is it a case of people thinking he is just along for the ride with Tavares in Oshawa?

    What are MacLean's strengths/weaknesses? Where will he go, mid 1st to early 2nd round?

    I don't really think he has gone that un-noticed since he is predicted to go between 25-35 but here is what I have observed.

    He has pretty good size and is strong on the puck. Especially along the boards and working the cycle. While he has some play-making ability his wrist shot is his biggest weapon. It's a shot that appears to get on goalies quicker then they expect time and time again and most of his 47 goals came from it.
    Will he play in the Bigs some day ......well who really knows but I'd have to say he is as good a prospect as Cheecho was during his junior days but so were a lot of other guys who have since disappeared.

    i think he will be picked at around 20-25. i dont think he will last to the second round.
