    There's been a lot of talk about Quinton Byfield on this thread going back to last year. Couple of things to note. Lets hear it from the people that know him the best, like...himself and his coach!

    On Physicality;

    "I don't really throw my body around too much or go out of my way to make a hit"

    Or his coach in Sudbury Cory Stillman;

    "Quinton isn't the most physical guy, but on the puck, yes, he's very determined and strong on the puck, very strong on his feet with quick hands. That's the physical side of his game that's different than a lot of other players."

    Playmaker or "shoot first";

    "I'd say I'm a playmaker who sets up teammates quite a bit," Byfield said. "I like to find them first before I shoot."

    The piece is up on NHL.COM. Byfield is one of my favorite players coming out in 2020. Maybe NYR gets lucky again on the lotto. I love the size/skill/skating combo.

    He has all the tools but I also think he has the potential to be the biggest bust too. I was very high on him early on but its dwindled some what. Still if he puts it together I could see him being a top 10 center

    Perfetti puttin on a clinic!

    SAULT STE MARIE, Ont. — Cole Coskey and DJ Busdeker both scored twice and Cole Perfetti tacked on five assists as the Saginaw Spirit downed the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds 7-5 on Wednesday in Ontario Hockey League action.
    Perfetti moved into second in league scoring with 92 points in 51 games. He trails only Ottawa 67's forward Marco Rossi, who has 94 points in 43 contests.

    OHL Top 10 in scoring. Quinn ihas 44g on the season!!!!

    Is Quinn’s middle name Hughes? It should be.

    Marco Rossi centering Panarin and Kakko would be a dream. They'd never lose the puck.

    I'm still high on a line of Lemieux-Byfield/Rossi/Zary-Kakko

    Juries out on Kravtsov. He’s not performing all that well in the AHL so I’m not sure how he’s much better than a Nash or MSL - even while declining - just yet. Some of these guys discussed in this thread will be misses. I’m hopeful on Kravtsov but we can’t just presume.

    A couple of names I would keep an eye out for. They will climb the rankings in the following months.... and if some test well at the combine, might even sniff a late first. Some potential boom or bust guys below.

    • Seth Jarvis- potential Jordan Eberle here. He will end up in the first, mid-late 20s. If the Rangers have an extra pick, this is an outstanding value pick. Seeing him live soon.
    • Tyson Foerster- IMO he will climb the rankings. If he has a good showing at the combine, he's got it in him to be a pick in the late teens. If he doesn't you are looking at a 25-40 slot for him. Another great value pick.
    • James Hardie- at the very least he will give you some good news stories the next two years. Progressing nicely. Do not know about NHL upside, but he produces. If the speed is there, or gets better, then he's got a shot.
    • Tyler Tullio- another offensive player who needs to take a few leaps physically.
    • Martin Chromiak- Potential steal. Getting some hype now, but that's a damn shame. Could have been a late round gem, but now he's going to cost a higher pick.

    Please draft Lukas Reichel! That 5v5 P/60 is absolutely insane.

    Is morgan Barron's brother still regarded as a high end prospect?

    Upside could be there still, but way less prominent as it was being discussed last year.... I have him in the 2nd round, ATM.

    I second this. I'm not a corsi guy, but by watching him it obviously shows that he's got a ton of talent.

    I remember his father and uncle playing for different counties against each other in the 2002 Olympics. It was so weird.

    His uncle was a really good player in his day.

    Lukas doesn’t look flashy at all but he’s really effective in everything he does.

    I actually might. Haven't been there in 5 or 6 years and I haven't been there in the summer. Great city.

    Scares me. As of today, I will easily take the Swedes and Lundell ahead of him. Even a Holloway.

    Not as much. The compete level, the ability to understand the game. I worry about his ability to adjust to higher level competition.
