by Eldon MacDonald

107. Daniel Pribyl - “Danny Boy” - F – Czech Republic

Vitals: Size - 6’3”, 190 lb.; Shoots right; Born: 18-Dec-92
Team: HC Sparta Praha U20, CZE Jr.
2010-11Stats: 39-29-29-54-20 + Czech U20 playoffs - 4-4-1-5-2
107 - E-Mac's 2011 NHL Entry Draft Top 120
120 - Christopher Ralph's Top 210
280 - NHL Central Scouting's Final Rankings (46th European skater)
Draft result:
168 - Montreal Canadiens

Oh Danny Boy, the coaches, the coaches are calling
From end to end, and all around the sides
The summer's gone, and now there’s no stalling
'Tis you, 'tis you must go and we must stand with pride!!!

Danny boy is a player with high-end offensive potential as evidenced by his over a point per game results in the Czech U20 juniors. He has the size, the hands, the vision, the stickhandling, the shot, the dekes to be something special offensively. In addition, his skating is well within the acceptable range. However, when it comes to things physical and things defense, Oh Danny Boy is lacking. So Danny Boy is a high risk, high reward type of pick. For me, the potential reward is too big not to take the risk by at least the 4th round.
