Draft Stuff

There's lots of draft stuff out there with several future Wolverines set to be selected this weekend:

MHNet has links to Bob McKenzie's rankings as well as more from Red Line Report. McKenzie compares Chris Brown (#39 overall) to Jamie Langenbrunner. TSN, ISS, Central Scouting, and McKeen's really like him (ranking him between 34-40). Red Line Report has him as #101. McKenzie has Mac Bennett as #56 overall and he compares Bennett to Petr Svoboda, which is kind of awesome. It wouldn't be remotely shocking to see him go higher than that. Kevin Lynch is listed an as Hono(u)rable Mention.

Here's yet another feature on Bennett and Derek DeBlois, who played together growing up, played together at Hotchkiss Prep, should play together in Cedar Rapids, and will play together at Michigan.

Kevin Allen from USA Today predicts Bennett will go in the second round.

The Maple Leafs Hot Stove profiles Chris Brown as a potential Leafs' selection.

Another Brown profile.

The Hockey Program has Bennett as his sleeper.

The New England Hockey Journal has Bennett as the #3 New England area player and DeBlois as the #9 player from the region. They have profiles of both. DeBlois is describe as a "fiery, playmaking sparkplug".

WCH profiles Kevin Lynch.

Not draft related: The Hockey News has their fantasy look at the St Louis Blues for next year and states that Aaron Palushaj could see 50-60 games. (HT Bret at GoBlueWolverine)

Love this comment from Bennett on Yost: “It’s an amazing atmosphere. The fans are absolutely insane. (Yost Arena) has got this old-barn feel. It’s not one of these ridiculous $30-million rinks."

Good man.
