    Smid looks like he will be a really good #2 d-man who plays a 2 way game and brings untapped offensive abilities.

    NHL comparable player: Mattias Ohlund

    Staffan Kronwall - Toronto

    Sounds alot like his brother, but less offensive. Reliable, and a good hitter. Most likely to become a 3rd pairing d-man, but has the potential to become a 2nd pairing.

    They guy I compare him to is Brett Hull-not in that he's ever going to become even close to what Hull was(he will NOT), but in that he has an ability to somehow always be in the right place at the right time to score a goal. He can be invisible for 55 minutes and then out of nowhere open himself up to score. He'll be a perennial 20-25 goal guy, probably hitting 30-35 a few times throughout his career. He's also competent in his own end, and playing with Lehtinen should only make that are of his game better.

    Brandon Prust. Probably the least naturally skilled player out of all you've listed but will play for the Flames one day. Right up Sutter's ally.

    Kinda like Kris Draper - except exchange some goals for some fights. Wears his heart on his sleave and will become a fan favorite in Calgary in a few years. Man, do I miss watching him play for the Knights.

    Lauri Tukonen - Good/solid 1st liner great 2nd liner. Will be known more for two way play to compare to another player i'd say somoene like Jere Lehtinen great two way game with good offense too.
