    Are you thinking of McLeod on the 4th line? I believe Holloway was drafted on the basis he will be a pro center but that is 2-3 years away and if you can possibly develop another C with size and speed that's a unicorn outside of a top 10 pick. Having said that Mcleod's lack of snipe looks eerily like his brother's. He has an NHL physical package but the scoring may prevent him from ever being a top 9 guy.

    Doesn't shoot enough and is 7% when he does. Guys who never shoot usually can't be made to so for any success he will be challenged. He probably has to get to 2 SOG per game and a % of at least 10. Otherwise he becomes a winger and scratching for minutes. I liked the pick a lot when they made it and to me he looks better than his stat line but what does a 5g forward in the AHL typically develop into?

    3C for McLeod, IMO Holloway likely ends up being a Jack of all trades top 6 winger that can slot in at C if there are injuries.

    Bernd Freimüller on two Bakersfield players loaned to Europe right now:

    On Yannis Kaldis:

    Pro: Moves his feet well, with & without the puck. Offers himself as a passing option. Can carry the puck. At times finds open ice offensively. Rather relaxed in his own zone , defends with feet and stick.
    Contra: No physical game, would meet his limits in the NHL. Good puck skills, but not (yet) commanding offensively or on the powerplay.
    State as of now: Plays on the top pairing with a veteran on his team in the Austrian league. Would find himself further down the depth chart in the AHL or even in the ECHL, depening on the depth of the organization.
    Three-year prediction: Could play a good role in the AHL.

    On Devin Brosseau:

    Pro: Good size and most of all reach. Can carry puck around opponents, good one-vs-one, hidden and quick shots. Wins pucks with his poke checks.
    Contra: Appears sluggish at times, would have to move feet more often and more dynamically. Defensively often looking for his position, not a penalty-killer. How many fire is there in his game?
    State as of now: On the second powerplay unit on his team in the Austrian league. Plays winger and not center as originally announced. Two-way game wouldn't look good in the AHL. Slight uptrend since the beginning of his first senior season.
    Three-year prediction: More likely in Europe than in North America.

    Agreed. Personally I think Holloway will project as a top six winger who can skate, hit and play a gritty game. His playing style and size will complement very well to the Oil elite McDavid and Draisaitl. But his versatility as a centre/wing is always a valuable asset along with experience to pk.

    McLeod is a pure centre who can hopefully develop his playmaking skill at the pro level while continuing to grow a pretty solid defensive game. There's a reasonable slow cook development path with Turris signed for two years.
