    Have read that he is a top rated prospect for the 05 draft. Where do you see him going in next season's draft? How does he compare to other 05's such as Setoguchi, Brule, Dranzenovic, Bertram, Durand, Ryan, etc.?

    The big thing with Lawrence is that he definitely has the talent to be a solid player. He only shows flashes of the player he can be. Consistency is the big thing here. If he can consistenly play to his potential he will be fine.

    He also needs to use his size more.

    thing about Lawrence is last year I found him to be a bit reluctant to use his size and strength on the ice and usually showed little effort on the ice at times as well. He has all the intangables to be a very very good prospect but this year we will see if he learned anything from last year or he is another case of a prospect with an extreme amount of talent gone to waste by overall effort on the ice.

    He needs to learn how to play in heavy traffic. He is skilled but as of right now he is to much of a perimeter player.

    He has a decent chance to go in the first three rounds, with the first round being a slim possibility.

    Definitely. I would say that the first round is a pretty slim possibility. I wouldn't be surprised to see him gone sometime within the first three or four rounds of the draft.
