The Next Wave NHL
VANCOUVER CANUCKS
SUMMARY
The Ducks have some high end specs on defense and up front. Steel is a great offensive talent, as is Montour from the backend. There's good depth and players who can fill multiple roles throughout the organization, except in net, which is very thin. 

UP
Sam Steel's grade improved eve more from the spring as he further establishes himself as a top spec with a HIGH upside.

DOWN
Julius Naatinen dropped down according to the model, he struggled much more this year offensively, which limits his potential upside, he's still a strong 2 way prospect, but it will be interesting to see how he adjusts to the pro game

WHO TO WATCH
Picking a player to rise up the team chart next year is tough. Marcus Pettersson does stand out a bit. He's played pro in Sweden is coming to North America, and while offense isn't his strength, his steadiness in his own end, and ability to make a first pass make him a prime candidate to rise up the rankings next year.
