    I think that Carolina would consider him at 2, but go with Svechnikov. I don't see any way that MTL would not take him at 3.

    On the question of position, Benning said in an interview not long ago that he expects EP to start on the wing, but he'll be tried at centre at some point next year.

    What Benning expects, and what actually happens, are often 2 very different things. However, given the value of centres (vs wingers), team need, and the fact that unlike his SHL team- the Canucks have no chance of winning a league championship next year, it's obvious that he'll be given a chance to play centre. Will it work out ??? Nobody knows for sure, but he was a centre for most of his life before he advanced to pro hockey.

    Lol. We’ve been talking about this since November. He’s been playing wing most of the season. Currently a winger, pettersson said he can play either, been a centreman his whole life will probably start the Canucks as a winger.
