    Do the Wild really need another big forward with minimal skill?!?!?!

    Could do worse at 43 than a speedy 6'3" center.

    what if he pans out to be a faster version of coyle, isn't that worth a 2nd?

    You can get big and speedy without spending assets, Tim Schaller comes to mind. Beecher, it depends how you think his offense would translate.

    Much safer pick for his size and skill set to translate than many of the numerous 5'10" - 5'11" prospects listed.

    I think he's going higher than mocks are saying. Some team will grab him in the 20's

    If he has a strong combine he will go #20-31. Centers that can wheel like him are the exact type of players playoff teams will use their 1st on.

    Uhh, I wouldn't say size is a players lifeline anymore. Look around the league - those 5'10" etc players are taking over and dominating the league.

    i guess if you think a sean kuraly kind of player is worth a late 1st, you make that pick.
    i don't see the offense with beecher, but certainly the size/speed combination is alluring.

    He’ll be a 10-15 goal guy in all likelihood, if you have 2 picks in the 2nd he worth grabbing with one of them.

    90% of those sized players do a disappearing act in the more physical playoffs. I’m glad you’re not my teams’s gym. Size and speed with a small smattering of smaller skilled guys that can hold their own.

    I don't know many teams that are searching for a defensive forward and penalty killer in the top two rounds but knock yourself out.

    By round 2, you're looking for an NHL player. More than that is a bonus.

    Size, speed, good defensively, he likes to hit--contributes some offense. There's a lot to like.

    I suspect somewhere between 25 and 45. There is some question about his offense--that said on a stacked USNTDP team he did not get put into the best quality situations. He was like their 7th forward. I think he's a very safe pick and should play in the NHL for years though--for his size, excellent skating, physical play and defensive game and if his offense ever did come around he would be a real steal.

    Can anyone see Johnny Beecher opting to go CHL route after being drafted or a team making him report to the Sault ?

    Definitely the kind of guy you could see a team falling in love with.
