A player who has been flirting with first-round bona fides, but ultimately comes in as 37th overall ranked player in our consensus rankings, is Edmonton native and Regina Pats centre Sam Steel.
Regarded as a smaller and shiftier centre, who possesses elite playmaking abilities and hockey sense. If Steel is still available in the early parts of the second round, I won't be surprised to hear of a few teams looking to trade up to select the young pivot.

Coming in at #39 we have Cam Dineen, one of a few small(ish) defensemen who may be getting overlooked a little bit heading into the draft.
After the jump we'll take a look at one of the most statistically impressive defenders coming out of the OHL this season.

Marc Crawford is back in the NHL, returning to the bench as an assistant to Guy Boucher with the Ottawa Senators. This, after a long and successful stay in the NLA of Switzerland.
That's an interesting fit, to be sure. And one that has we wondering about his long-term prospects in the NHL. Could a return to the role of head coach be forthcoming?
Assuming that's the case, I've asked the Canucks Army staff for their thoughts on the possibility of Crawford as a Canucks head coach in the not-so-distant future, assuming there is a vacancy.
