    Zadina/Wahlstrom + Olofsson/Berggren/Kravstov would be a very good first round.

    I hope Zadina improves his explosiveness and top speed.

    I like the rest of his game but without that acceleration he might top as a 50-60 point forward rather than one who could flirt with 80.

    He reminds me a lot of Brock Boeser.

    It would be such a great fit. When they trade Hoffman he can probably slot in on our top PP unit right away as the lefty trigger man. Would help the team immediately.

    Yeah, if Hoff is gone, Zadina would be an ideal option to replace him. Really hoping that he falls to us.

    @FolignoQuantumLeap @Micklebot Zadina tends to play the Bobby Ryan or right side on the pp not Hoffman spot. Either way we need another trigger man.

    I guess, but just because he junior coach plays him that way, doesn't mean he lacks the skill set to be a trigger man on the PP. He doesn't even need to play the same exact role on the PP as Hoffman; he's got a fantastic shot and the ability to find soft spots in coverage. I think he'd help the PP.

    Oh absolutely . I was just merely pointing out he plays his off wing like most pp goal scorers do ala OV , Laine etc.

    Nope. I hate people in general too much for a career in sales. I'll stay with being an awkward AF engineer thanks

    So all this talk of them wanting a center or one of the top D was a smokescreen?

    I don't get the logic of that if they are just going to stay put at #3 and take Zadina.

    Could have been fishing to see what they could get to move down a couple spots

    He isn't going to MTL, I say that with a bit of certainty

    I don't get it. Why put out that you're going to reach at 3rd OA, it weakens your position in a trade. You want teams to think you value 3rd OA, not think you'd be doing them a favour by flipping you a third to move back a spot or two.

    My worry is that if Montreal doesn’t want him they may look to trade back. Another team might really want Zadina and try to move up to get him. My guess is he’s likely off the board when we go up to pick, but I hope I’m wrong.

    Trading back is a smart move if you can get the guy you want and the other pieces are worth it.

    If Zadina is off the board there will be at least 5 other very good prospects to choose from in Tkachuk, Kotkaniemi, Wahlstrom, Dobson or Bouchard, Ottawa will still end up with a very good player at 4th overall. IMO I think the first 10 players of this draft could end up being very good players, I like Hayton a lot too. Sure there are drop offs, but I don't think they are as significant as people are saying especially after the first two prospects these guys could go in almost any order as so many different rankings prove.

    Yes, after the elite player(s) are taken (Dahlen and possibly Svechnikov) the rest of the top 10 or so have similar probabilities of becoming decent NHL level players. Their development over the next 2 or 3 years will determine the results. I see more rating services supporting Tkachuk than the others.

    If Hoffman is moved, I think it's quite possible that Ottawa could draft Zadina as the sniper to replace Hoffman the sniper especially if they think Zadina is almost NHL ready & still on the board.
