2008 NHL Draft: Erik Karlsson
p to the 2008 draft, Flordiapanthers.com will be highlighting some of the top prospects to look out for. Could the Panthers draft one of these players with their pick in the second round or might they move up to grab one of these top players to further bolster their system and hope they contribute to the big club one day?

Each week day, we'll take a look at three prospects and get Panthers Director of Amateur Scouting Scott Luce's opinion on each of them.

WHAT CENTRAL SCOUTING SAYS

Excellent on the power play. Makes smart passes and has great vision. Plays with confidence, has natural hockey sense and is consistent offensive threat. Compensates for lack of strength and size with mobility, passing and vision and is at his best as offensive defenseman. Needs more weight and strength to be more effective in front of his own net.

WHAT PANTHER SCOUT SCOTT LUCE SAYS

Good on both sides of the puck. Very competitive. Good natural instincts for the game.
