Anyone who pays attention to junior hockey know anything about Dennis Yan? I was just googling some mock drafts and see that one -- for what it's worth -- has him being one of our second round picks. His numbers look pretty good -- ppg+ as a youngish 17 year old -- and this summary suggests that he's pretty skilled.
It also looks like he had a very productive Hlinka tournament. Of course, the summary says his defensive skills need work, so I guess that means he's not even on Conte's draft board, but we'll see.
The idea that the Devils don't draft defensively limited players is borne out by absolutely no evidence.
