Well I'm interested in seeing this kid because I don't know anything about him. But why not Sproul. He's been conspicuously passed over it seems to me.
Sproul has made some bone headed defensive mistakes lately by all accounts. Heard a lot of good things about Marchenko though.
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk
