I've seen some lists that have Hughes at #8 and 9, and from what I understand he isn't as good as his brothers, inconsistent defensively. Could he be the Keith Gretzky of the Hughes family?  

Maybe more like Jared Staal or as referenced above Jordan Subban. Both these guys were hyped up to be the "best of the brothers" too I believe. Curious if there are any "3rd brother" that has actually done well in the league...

why?

 

he's good on face offs, plays physical and can provide some offence. Seems like a great solution to our 3C problem to me. 

Cost effectiveness isn’t there for me, seen a lot of Jenner game. Him

in the playoff is just slightly better than Jake. And he on a downward trend also

My best guess at the moment how the draft plays out:

 

1. Power

2. Beniers

3. Clarke

4. Hughes

5. Eklund

6. Edvinsson 

7. Guenther

8. Johnson 

9. McTavish

 

Really glad the Canucks didn't drop in the lottery.  Like GMJB said, I think there's a really good Top 9.  Maybe Top 10.

is he a better play driver than miller?

 I would think he'd be more on the defensive end than Miller.

 

So it really depends on what Benning is looking at doing, more of a change to a higher scoring 3rd line or more of a harder checking line.

Duane Sutter did pretty well.
