Craig Button, TSN: “Elite skating defenceman makes it very difficult to forecheck him and allows him to open up ice. Attributes of a modern NHL blueliner.” Corey Pronman, The Athletic: He’s a 6-foot-3 defenseman who is an elite skater. That combination alone is scary. Scott Wheeler, The Athletic: In the right program, there’s no question that there’s a lot to tap into. But there’s definitely a lot of risk associated with taking him in the first half of the first round.

Draft Day Thoughts…

Don’t expect the Edmonton Oilers to trade up or down from the #8 slot. We haven’t seen a team trade up or down in the top-ten since 2008. We are more likely to see a team trade the pick for an NHL player than see a team move up or down within the top ten. I’m more interested to see if Ken Holland makes a trade before leaving Vancouver.
