    Can someone who watched his games fairly consistently, or is reliable enough to give me realistic information on him, tell me how this kid's development is coming?

    HF gives me a pretty solid review, saying that Wishart, if he continues his strong development, projects to be a top pairing defenseman who can dominate on both ends of the ice. Obviously, the moment you look at his size, you think of the words Chris Pronger.

    Pronger, quite obviously, would be the ceiling for Wishart. But for those who have seen him, what do you expect him to be at the NHL level?

    He will NEVER EVER be a Pronger type of defenceman...Pronger is special, Wishart, while good, isn't...

    Some say he's gonna be a McLaren type of defenceman, and with a little more offence if his transition to pro game is good.

    doesn't go for the big hit at all..in fact, that's one of his biggest flaws..for being 6'5...he's very passive when it comes to physical play. During the the later parts of the playoffs he seemed to start playing a little more physical...

    He's got a cannon from the blueline, and is quite accurate with his shot. His first pass out of the zone generally is damn good....although, there are a number of times when he seems to almost over think the play before he dishes the puck, and by the time he moves it, that particular play is gone. Although, once again, there were times when this seemed to be improving.

    His skating, for a big guy is quite good. He never seems to be going hard with his skating, but that's likely because he IS 6'5...and for the most part is relatively an effortless skater...

    His offensive game has gotten better each year in PG.,...and will likely continue to get better next year as well...and even though it's not the greatest stat, his +/- is quite good too

    sounds like a good reveiw

    Strengths-Decent puckmover, Hard Accurate shot, Positionally sound, Very BIGG, decent offensively

    Flaws-Should use size more, Sometimes holds the puck to long, Should put up better numbers in the future

    I'm in, but doesn't he have a little more offensive upside?

    That's a wait and see. They both have a powerful shot but Rat's took (takes) an hour to come off his stick...Wishart is a lil quicker so he might score a few more goals.

    We actually took David Fisher with your first round pick, then Carle with your second.
