Nathan Bastian was a member of the ‘All-Eligible’ line that the Steelheads had going along with Alex Nylander and Michael McLeod. I guess a lot of folks are really a lot higher on Bastian than I am. I wouldn’t rank him near the first round. He’s got great size and uses it to his advantage but whenever I’ve seen him play he tends to flag as a 3rd line player to me. My comparable is Jimmy Hayes but I think Bastian would be pretty lucky to reach that level.
