Good size and one of the better skaters in the draft. Raw but good pick. Solid prospect.

Was hoping for Wilde , McLeod was expected to go much earlier. Another late birthday. Sounds like a 3rd line centre with room to move up.

Watch out. We may have a farm team with real prospects yet.

Really happy with this pick. He's a great skater, can dangle and can rush end to end like it's nothing.

This kid is going to be something good when he fills out.

He is listed at 206 pounds according to NetBog. I Would worry that if he fills out much more it could hurt his speed.
If he does get stronger but not lose much speed he could have a good chance to be an NHL power forward.

Never heard of him before yesterday, that isnt a criticism of I just dont follow junior much.
Things I am reading today;
- "man" size already
- fast, especially for his size
- read a comparison to Rick Nash
- Can play wing as well
- every scouting report/pre-draft list I found had him in the 20's overall so in theory good value at #40

Good summary here;

Bonus; Brother is a devils prospect. We will have top end family ties around the league, not just in the org if all of these guys make the big club.

The troubles his brother is having makes me nervous about Ryan McLeod. But he is his own individual, hopefully all works out.

I would have liked Addison, Wilde, Durzi, or Thomas. But this isn't off the board which I appreciate. I know three are RHD, but those are literally the most valuable pieces in the NHL right now, and the Oilers have been hunting for them for so long. Thomas was a guy that slipped.

But again, this isn't a bad pick, might turn out fine.

He's supposed to be a great skater. Big, centers that can fly. YES PLEASE!!

Load up on centers and wingers is what I think teams should do. You can always turn a center into a winger if needed and other teams are always looking for centers or dmen in trades. Plus he was ranked mid first round and you get him at 40. Even better.

Watched some highlights and he looks like he has all the tools to be a really good player. Heard that many had him ranked to go in the first round so another lucky bounce for the Oilers.

it’s amazing to me how few Canadian players shoot right while actually being right handed. It’s ridiculous.

Somebody did a study on this. Apparently it has to do with what sport you first play as an infant. In U.S.A. the first thing a little kid does is throw a baseball or football. This lets the dominant hand take over. In Canada it is usually a hockey stick playing shinny. For some reason the dominant hand goes to the top of the stick.

The study found that in the warm province of B.C., more kids start with baseball than the rest of Canada. So more right handed hockey players come from B.C.

Also Benning's dad apparently forced him to play right as a kid and now that's basically why he's in the NHL.
