    Seney was a top-5 freshman scorer. He had the highest PPG total amongst freshmen following Eichel and Larkin. He had the same PPG as Alex Tuch, Minny 2014 1st rounder, while playing for one of the most offensively starved teams. Really excited to see what this guy does next season. Should have a huge role at Merrimack these next 2-3 years.

    This pick has me most excited, other than Zacha of course. I like his potential. Hopefully he can keep developing.

    Definitely a four year college player. With the speed and skill this kid has he could be putting up some serious stats by his junior and senior year. Although the lack of talent around him could hinder that. Great 6th round pick for sure.

    Honestly I don't get the issues with his size, at least for a sixth-round pick. I mean obviously his size is a detriment.

    But I just like to point to Nathan Gerbe. The kid's 5'5", a height that basically carries a "DO NOT DRAFT" label along with it, and the very idea of . Haven't seen him "explode" every time he gets into some contact. Start with talent, work from there.

    Was just going to post this.

    And if you watched his HL video, early on he's tieing his skates, and it looks like he has decent muscle tone in his arms.

    Considering the success of players like Gaudreau and Johnson, Im not worried about size here at all.

    Really like the pick.

    Definitely can't deny the kid has wheels, and some talent. Could be an interesting pick.

    Strangely it wasn't bumped again long after the draft, it only showed up if you hit the checkmark to search titles for Seney.

    I think Seney can make the team out of camp

    It sounds like he’s looked better than any of the other rookies at forward. That leaves STAFFORD blocking his way. I’d like to think Seney can offer more than the RW ewuivakent of Ben Lovejoy without the retirement contract.

    Stafford isn't blocking Seney unless Seney and the rest of the young kids let him.

    Stafford, IMO, would be blocking Rooney or Lappin if they don't look like they can play the 13th forward role for the year.

    Stafford is a deliberate obstacle.

    With a PTO, management is saying, "Be more consistent than this experienced guy who's been inconsistent or is slowing down. If you can do that, you're in."

    What, you’ve never spelled equivalent without using a q?

    This kid can play. Who knows if he's a top 6 guy or not but he was definitely the most noticeable player from that Pittsburgh game IMO. Great skater who can back up the D. Hopefully we'll see him in a few preseason games because I want to see what he can do versus NHLers now.

    @My3Sons tried spelling the word "Equivalent" but his hands fell asleep so he had to spell it using his nose on the keyboard.

    As you can see, it didn't work out that well. :sarcasm:

    Should be a fun camp this year. Bunch of kids should be looking to make big statements.

    Brylin is the player Seney reminds me of most, plug him anywhere in your 12-forwards lineup and he'll get it done for you. Seney even looks a bit like Sarge.
