The candidates

Yesterday on TSN:
With regards to the Canadian teams; the Toronto Maple Leafs have the 7th overall selection and McGuire has them taking bruising defenceman Jared Cowen (Spokane - WHL). Button thinks there will be a Schenn family reunion in Toronto with Brayden joining older brother Luke.

The Ottawa Senators have the 9th pick and Button thinks they will add depth on the blueline by selecting Sweden's Oliver Ekman-Larsson (Leksand). McGuire thinks the Sens will go with a forward and take Nazem Kadri (London - OHL).

Here are the details on the prospects.

If Heatley ends up in Minny (12th), Nashville (11th) or maybe even St.Louis (17th) and their pick is part of the deal, it'll be hard not to go for Kassian. Gotta love the report on him:
Last season as an under-ager there were overage guys in the league who would not take him on. He has not fought much this season (because) he has not had to.
That and a point a game.

I'm curious to see where Ellis (5'9") and Schroeder (5'8") end up getting picked.
