    I don’t have him as high as most because those set ups don’t show everyone any glance at him in his own end. As a Blackhawk fan, the video did give some nice looks at his defensive partner Hawk pick, Jake Ryczek…

    Here’s my take on Mcisaac from DraftSite:

    Another offensive defenseman with 200 foot capability. Plays solid in his own end and continues to improve as he gains strength and adjusts to the faster pace. Doesn’t get intimidated or flustered and is willing to challenge attackers by stepping into them or funneling them outside. Played solid in the Ivan Hlinka in the summer, and continued to improve his game all season with Halifax. Has grown to almost six-one and is very mobile puck carrier at 190 pounds. Has found a nice balance of get up and go and stay back and defend, in this the year of the “offense man.” But still prone to forcing plays and some real issues with his lack of awareness and processing in high pace close quartered defensive zone situations. He is going to have to be more self aware of when pressure is about to close on him and better vision and having his head up on a swivel before getting blind sided or stripped.
