    Hi, I just wanted to ask for views, forecasts, and any other information on this guy. I have read the HF TB draft review, the Hockey News (which ranked him somewhere like #22 in their prospect rankings for the draft), The Forecaster (I think also ranked him pretty high, I think top 25), and some other sites I can't remember now.

    From the information I can find, he seems to be a steal in the 3rd round for TB. Anyone with more insight and can elaborate more on this kid?

    Thanks.

    From the little I have seen of Slomenak, he seems to be a real offensive threat with a nose for the net and a sniper's mentality, but he definetely has some work to do with his skating because he's a pretty akward skating guy IMO and doesn't possess a lot of speed.
