In The Next Wave Craig and I discuss players who are projected to go after the first round, where great players, superstars and Hall of Fame players have been taken. Luke Tuch is a speedy power forward who can kill penalties and will thrive in the middle of the line up. He played last year with the USNDT and is off to Boston University. Martin Chromiak of the Kingston Frontenacs has a compact and quick release that doesn't scrape the roof with a wind up. He's young and only played 28 games in the OHL last year, so expectations will be high this coming season.
