E-Mac's 2011 NHL Entry Draft Top 120: Joseph Cramarossa #105

105. Joseph Cramarossa - “St. Joseph” - C - Canada

87 - Christopher Ralph's Top 210
105 - E-Mac's 2011 NHL Entry Draft Top 120
Draft result:
65 - Anaheim Ducks

I don’t know why but when ever I watch Joseph Camarossa skate I want to shout out, “Hallelujah” - maybe it is the fact he stands so erect that I think he is belting it out from the choir. However St. Joseph ain’t no choirboy as his 101 minutes in penalties and a number of fighting opponents can attest to. What St. Joseph does is bring some defense, grit, irritation, speed, doggedness and lots of consistency to the 3rd or 4th lines of the Memorial Cup Team St. Michael’s Majors.

At this stage we don’t know how good St. Joesph is offensively because he has not been asked to play that role. However, many feel that he has enough skills to really take off offensively when he is given that role - sort of like the difference between the Blake Coleman of last year ( third line defensive role) and the Blake Coleman of this year (USHL scoring champion) . CS has him 3rd round and he may well go that high even though he hasn’t broken out in the scoring department to date.
