    This is from Bleacher Report:

    2014 NHL Mock Draft: Early First-Round Projections | Bleacher Report

    Biggest Strengths: Matthew Mistele is one of the more talented gritty types that could be a top-30 or top-45 selection in 2014. He's not afraid to drop the gloves and can contribute in the offensive zone as well.

    Projected Role: Mistele projects as a talented agitator.

    Where He Needs to Improve: The more offense, the better for Mistele. He's strong in his own zone, but his stock could rise if he can improve on his 60-point season in 2014.
    His stock didn't rise as his production went the wrong direction. Like McKeown, he was a first-round projection in some very early mocks.

    Here's another early assessment, from December 2013:

    2014 NHL Draft Watch: Plymouth Whalers vs. Owen Sound Attack Report - SB Nation College Hockey

    Plymouth's Matt Mistele, like Nedeljkovic received an ĎA' rating from NHL Central Scouting in their most recent rankings. Like everyone on the Whalers on Wednesday night, Mistele looked a little flat, and didn't play as well as I've seen him play in the past. Even on an off night though, there's things to like about his game. He's not a player that really stands out offensively, but has good hockey sense and really drives an offense by making a lot of nice, subtle passing plays to set up teammates. He's got pretty decent size, listed at 6'1" 190 lbs., though I think he plays a little too upright sometimes and doesn't quite use his size to his full effectiveness. Mistele has flirted with the late first round on a lot of people's draft boards. That feels a little too high to me, but he's probably a 2nd or 3rd round type of guy.
    It all sounds promising, but temper your expectations since all the teams passed on this kid for five rounds including the Kings.

    I'd say he's an absolutely worthy pick at 180, surely worth a shot. Sounds like he just needs to find balance in his game.

    One more:

    NHL Draft Scouting Reports: 76-100 - Last Word On Sports

    81. Matt Mistele, LW, Plymouth Whalers, (6’2″ 190 lbs): Mistele has the size and the willingness to play a powerforward’s game. He works in all three zones, whether its being quick on the forecheck, fighting for space in front of the net, working the corners, or playing strong defensive hockey. He is a good skater who can fight through checks and cut hard to the front of the net. He also has a hard and accurate wrist shot, and a very good release. Consistency was an issue for him this season, as he struggled as the go to guy in the Whalers offence. Had 34 goals and 60 points as a rookie, but only 18 goals and 37 points in 56 points.
    Definitely sounds like a fit with our style.

    Kyle Woodlief's comment from January 2014:

    International performances shift draft list

    Matthew Mistele (Plymouth): Color us baffled! In his third OHL campaign and coming off a 34-goal, 60-point season, we were expecting huge production. Hasn't happened.

    If this is anything like balance in the force, no thanks. That did NOT work out well for Yoda and the gang in Episodes I-III.

    To this day, amongst all of the stupidity in the recent Star Wars trilogy, I will never understand why the Jedi - in a dominant position in the galaxy - would consider "balance" a good idea. Stupid Qui-Gon Jinn.

    I don't understand how 2 Sith versus an Intergalactic Council is balanced in the first place.

    It's like14 Western Conference teams versus 16 Eastern Conference teams. Oh wait.

    No, no, Anakin brought "balance" to the force... ostensibly by helping to destroy the dominant Jedi position... and then later killing Emperor Palpitine when the momentum swung over to the dark side's side. Basically, both sides of the force ate a big ol' **** sandwich because Qui-Gon Jinn prefers "balance" to Jedi Council and Academy vs. a handful of lonely Sith.
