    who has a good chance to turn out to be the steal of the draft so far?

    I'm thinking Grimaldi or Kucherov

    As usual too early to tell, but Grimaldi is a good call. Josh Leivo and Robbie Russo are two others I think will turn out great.

    Rocco hands down, he has the talent to be the best player in the draft when all is said and done. Whether he reaches that potential is another question entirely but an amazing pick for Florida.

    Tomas Jurco: A top ten talent.

    29. TOMAS JURCO
    2011 NHL Draft
    Profile
    2010-11 Team: Saint John Sea Dogs League: QMJHL
    Position: Right Wing Height: 6-2
    2010-11 Stats: 60 GP, 31 G, 56 PTS Weight: 193 lbs.
    Scouting Ranking
    NHL Central Scouting: 20 NAS, International Scouting Services: No. 25, The Hockey News: No. 28
    TSN Scout Grant McCagg:
    Followed up an impressive 51-point rookie QMJHL season with a underwhelming 56-point season on one of the most most talented QMJHL teams in memory. More was expected from the 6-2 Slovakian winger, who saw his ranking slip considerably before his redemptory Memorial Cup performance. Strengths - Has top ten skills with elite puckhandling abilities and excellent skating agility, has all the physical attributes to be a star. Weaknesses - very inconsistent, is a star one night and accomplishes little the next. Not overly gritty, tends to stay to the outside of the play. NHL Upside - Risky pick in the first round who may be a top-two winger (think a more skilled Michael Frolik), or could struggle for ice time due to inconsistencies.

    Little surprised Ambroz is still on the board..if he decides he wants to play hard...could be a late steal

    Agreed, also Beaulieu, Murphy, Couturier, Armia, Saad, Jenner...

    Many good guys with potential felt pretty far.

    Daniel Catenacci 3rd round 77th overall is the steal of the draft right now in my oppinion.

    Detroit getting Tvrdon in the fourth round.. If not injured, he was well on his way to being selected mid first to early second round. To get a legit power forward in the fourth round is a steal.

    Shocked that he fell to the 3rd. He's only about 5'10, but he's built like a tank. Love that pick! :)

    Not exactly the definition of a steal. I can't see how he could've gone earlier than 6th overall.

    Slow. Small. Corners don't see Michael much.

    As an Oil Kings fan, I had Lowe and Ewanyk much higher than him.
