    True, I'm less convinced he will be though, but we'll see.

    McIsaac for me. Merkley if he didn't have so many ? marks surrounding him would be my choice.

    Alexeyev > Sandin > Isaac

    The others have too many question marks and are high risk

    Hope in the 2nd round we get one of the others or Tychonick

    It's clearly who drives play 5 on 5, and I was impressed with the Miller in the single game I watched again North Dakota.

    You called him slow and lumbering. There's a wide area between fast and nimble as opposed to slow and lumbering.

    Is there really? His footspeed is problematic. Hes going to get burned at the next level for it.

    Yes, there is. You claimed one, not the other.

    By any chance, how many times have you watched him play? I'd question that after you claim his foot speed is problematic. Looking at his height on EP doesn't count as watching him play.

    Lol, good ole turn that against the exposure. Go read the Habs NHL draft thread, youll see im a regular there.

    I just offered detailed description of like 8 prospects, do you think I got that out of the blue?

    I agree with this - Alexeyev might not be the 2nd best D in the draft today - but he has all the qualities you want and with development he could be the 2nd best D in this draft when all is said and done.

    He has all the offensive skills but he's cautious with the puck, almost mistake free - though, less so over time and as the season progressed - if he let loose and started taking more risks who knows how much potential is hidden there. He has the skill to dangle and make killer passes on the PP - I think it's all there.

    I've been comparing him to a less aggressive, slightly smaller but more skilled version of Mattias Ekholm.

    Definitely disagree with this. Moves a lot better than Bouchard, for example

    Bouchards before or after playing 25 minutes? I think theyre both somewhat similar, clearly not a lot better.

    If he is, its not noticeable, but point in case, both are slow.
