    So we took more well-scouted prospects than past drafts on top of having more picks.

    In 2017, they picked 7 players (2 were not signed - Walford & Tyszka)

    In 2018, they picked 11 players

    In 2019, they picked 10 players

    In 2020, they currently have 9 picks.

    Exactly my point; actually picking players with our picks increases the amount of valuable prospects we have-- amazing!

    And as you also mentioned, they're well-scouted. The organization changed philosophy during the 2017-18 season and they've been drafting much better. They've identified the type of players they're looking for and the ones they're picking are made for today's NHL.

    Anyone see Allan McShane at prospect camp? How’s his first step and skating in general looking this year?

    I saw him but didn't take much notice, perhaps one of the other posters can chime in. I don't put a lot of stock into those camps, that's why I stopped going years back especially now that they stream some of it. I use that time to focus on the just drafted kids. Really hope he does a lot of work on his skating as clearly the offense is there.

    I remember one really good rush with the puck where he danced around a few guys in a row , can't remember which scrimmage he did it in though. Outside of that I don't remember anything negative or positive, he didn't particularly stand out. He'll get a better chance to shine at the prospect camp/tournament, scrimmages always favor the really good skaters since it's so wide open.

    From watching a good amount of his games this season he still needs to work on his acceleration. His edges are good and his maneuvering is pretty good but his overall speed and first step is below average. He's got good vision and excellent passing/playmaking abilities. His shot is lethal, his snapshot release is accurate and heavy. Good at one-timers as well. He's okay at one-on-one battles but needs to work on his lower body strength and puck protection. He made an effort to get to the front of the net more often this season and it rewarded him with more goals.

    I'd like to see him move his feet more.

    Ya I think once he starts moving his feet more he'll produce a lot more as well. I could see him being a 85+ point player.

    Not sure how much you guys know about my personal life, but I graduated university this year and might be moving back to Montréal, so my reign as WHL Prospect King might be over.

    I'll still be watching hundreds of games on WHL Live but obviously you can't assess a player as good on a screen as you do live, especially after talking to coaches, billet parents, etc.
