I read a very negative scouting report about Ryan Martindale from earlier this year on your site. I am from Ottawa and follow the 67s closely. All Martindale has accomplished this year is to center two guys who tore the league apart.
Tyler Toffoli won the scoring title and Shane Prince came out of nowhere to score 88 points this year. No winger can produce these kind of numbers without a good centre. Along the way Martindale scored 34 goals and notched 49 assists in 65 games or a 1.28 PPG average.
Granted he isn't the fastest or flashiest guy around, but just because his style is free and easy doesn't mean that he doesn't have any compete in him. He was the best player on the ice in the last two games I saw, and the 67s have lost so many players to injuries that he probably has had to play around 28 minutes a night or so.
As a third rounder if he takes another year or two to develop into an NHL third or fourth liner, then so be it. He will make it to the NHL.
