    Give me Berglund even though I'm a big Maksimov fan.

    Gotta ask, what makes you have Berglund, Niemelainen and Lagesson ahead of Mantha?

    Well, first off keep in mind that the difference between the prospects this late is small. I have them all right in the same group... but if I were to really split hairs, I'd say I see a few more holes in Mantha's game compared to the other 3. I like the IQ with the other three more, especially Berglund and Lagesson. On top of that Mantha's skating is a concern for me. His straight line speed is actually quite good for his size, but his backwards skating, specifically lateral mobility scares me. He gets beat by speed way to easily.

    With that said I like a lot about him, adding him to the pool for free was great. If hes our #16 Prospect (on my list), then I like the depth. The adjustment to pro will be very interesting. A good first year and he'll skyrocket up my list, same for Ziat Paigan (North American Pro).
