    Good value where we snagged him. Somebody give him a foot transplant.

    It's only depth if they are NHL players.

    He played a lot better as the season went on. I remember seeing that he had 38 points in 48 games before February, but had 18 in 12 in February.

    is his skating that bad? It doesn't look that bad to me but I'll admit I'm not the greatest judge.

    Hope he's not a Bozon. He looks more like a winger to me.

    He has a pro caliber shot, natural release to can't be taught. How the hell are guys like this fallers? PP specialist coming up, and nothing worng with that. Micheal Ryder was a fine NHL'er.

    McShane being available at 97 is a great example of how deep this center class was. Everyone was focused at the top but this was a deep class for Day 2 guys. In Olofsson, Hillis, and McShane we got excellent players that all probably should have been off the board already.

    I never thought I was particularly high on Hillis, Fonstad, or McShane. Others in the draft thread were much higher on all three. End of the day, though, we got 45, 51 and 67 on my list at 66, 97, and 128. Fuggedaboudit.

    I was never high on these guys because, while they're all skilled and smart, they don't have that Berggren ''buzzsaw'' aspect to them. That made me think that they'll likely underperform at the NHL level. However, having all three of them, I think there's a decent chance we get a very good player. McShane is very smart, Hillis has great vision and feistiness (statistically he's interesting as well, but he might be buoyed by linemates), and Fonstad is extremely skilled.

    My list only went up to 14 and then I had broader groupings, but had Olofsson as a late round 1, Hillis and McShane as late round 2, and Fonstad as a 3rd rounder.

    Don't see it to be honest. Fonstad has a beautiful skating stride and edge work, makes a lot of quick moves at speed. Hudon had brutal skating, kind of like McShane. They both do these little nifty passes just before getting checked along the boards because they're so bad at skating. They rely a lot on use of empty space and quick hands at lower velocity.

    Yeah, I mustve been pretty tired when I wrote that, or drunk ? Big week-end.

    I was about to say that. He looked like a beast. Of course it's a highlight video so it doesn't count.

    yeah he looks pretty damn skilled. That shot? wow. Looks more like a winger to me. Sucks about the skating and ethic so I'm not holding my breath. Still great to pick high upside guys.

    Was watching a U-18 game vs Sweden, liked what I saw from him but would have liked to see him get more involved physically. Showed some good things, of course it's just one game.

    Also outproduced his teammate Serron Noel.

    I just realized one of his assistant coaches in Oshawa is Greg Nemisz who was the player that Calgary selected with the 1st rounder they received in the Tanguay to Montreal trade. Good for him to find a career this early, realizing he didn’t have one as a player.

    how bad does the skating look to you? It didn't look THAT bad to me in the highlights. Seems shifty enough. Do you think his skill can overcome it if he doesn't drastically improve it?

    ASIDE from the Kotka and Olof picks which in itself is cool enough to me because of the size and skill combo, the fact that we may of drafted 3 centers who will probably be the #1 Centers of their respective CHL teams gets me overly excited, theyll all get in the 5"11 185 range hopefully, maybe put up 1.5 PPG seasons, and god willing, at least ONE of them force Team Canada's WJC hand

    We can only hope

    I'd need to see more of him, he wasn't moving his feet a ton, does seem shifty though.
