We're another week closer to the NHL Draft. Brian Duff sat down with Dan Marr of NHL Central Scouting to discuss what to expect, and Marr offered a glowing review of potential top pick Rasmus Dahlin. 

"In the scouting world, when scouts talk amongst each other, they'll say, 'This is a kid that gets it.' And Rasmus gets it," Marr said. "That package is everything that's required on the ice, off the ice, character-wise, skills, assets, attributes - he brings them all together." 

Marr had plenty more to say about Dahlin and the upcoming draft in his chat with Duffer, which you can watch in its entirety below.
