  • Nice sizey winger; incredibly high ceiling and power forward potential
  • BC boy; played for Penticton Vees.
  • reminiscent of Rick Nash
  • Nimble skater, creates havoc around the net, can score from anywhere.
  • Finesse game, while pressing the defence; can agitate when in the mood
  • Known to have off-ice attitude problems that need straightening out; not a big issue
  • he'll do stuff like this:

Actually, I disagree with a lot of this if we go team needs.

Is this based purely on who in your opinion is BPA?

This is purely best player available.

Team needs aren't going to be a factor in 2015, unless there is an equally talented player who is in that different role, available.

Everybody will want the best player available because, otherwise, the next team down will take the player you could've gotten.

It's weighing benefits and risks - and how high a prospect's ceiling is.

Every prospect can bust. It's just that BPA will be worth it all the more if they don't. (This is part of the reason that I was so upset with the Jake Virtanen pick; was really hoping for Nikolaj Ehlers in the 2014 Draft)

  • Mikko Rantanen has top-10 skill
  • High hockey-IQ; he is a smart player who has the patience to set up plays, and the elusiveness to finish them.
  • Someone with size (6'4) who can start and finish plays is unheard of; this added to the fact that he is not afraid along the boards and good defensively? :frantic:
  • could turn out like Anze Kopitar, but I see him reaching a level even greater.
  • Has all the assets to have an amazing pro career.
