Rank 1: #8
Rank 2: #13
Rank 3: #14
Talent Analysis:
Scout 1: an okay skater...uses a fluid stride which enables him to accelerate quickly...should further upgrade on his backwards skating...okay lateral movement...okay turns and agility...decent top-end speed should still be improved...adequate lower-body strength and balance...decent puckhandling skills...distributes quick accurate passes, but should corral difficult passes more smoothly...displays a solid poise when jumping into the rush...can hide his intentions adequately well...decent offensive creativity...can fasten the pace of the play with a quick pass...occasionally overhandles the puck...sets up plays from the corner when playing on the power play units...can be used as both power play quarterback and pointman...prone to occasional bad decisions when moving the puck because of not reading the play properly...uses a solid variety of shots...slap shot is accurate when firing it quickly with average hardness...hard blasts lack accuracy...okay accurate snap shot...prone to occasional positional mistake when focusing on offense too much...can get flat-footed in the neutral zone...shows adequate aggressiveness in his own zone but isn't a menacing hitter...gets out powered by bigger hard in the corners to keep the opponents under control...average at clearing the crease.
