    I'm with you on Bouchard.

    I don't agree on Boqvist. The overall upside is way to high with the player for lack of being able to separate a player from the puck in the d zone to be a major factor. They have other guys who are capable of doing that.

    If any player at this level is incapable of creating separation I don’t care how good his other qualities are. I pass.

    I could swap Dobson and Tkachuk without losing sleep, but I don't think Tkachuk has the upside of the people ahead of him. I also think Dobson has the better chance of being a first pairing dman that can carry a pairing, than Tkachuk has at carrying a first line. Scouts may be inflating him due to intangibles like bloodlines, and I'm not saying he is a bad player, I stand by what I posted though.

    If Tkachuk comes down to us at 9, that's a steal of a pick.

    If we spend assets to move up to 5 or 7 so that we can grab him, I cry myself to sleep.

    Does there seem to be an indication now that Boqvist may drop due to his concussions, or is that more just the result of him being under the microscope for us fans?

    No doubt there are a lot of positive assessments of him. He's not ranked so highly by accident.

    But he is going to have to discover new areas of the o-zone ice to be effective from at the pro level. Playing against much stronger competition and not being a great skater is going to make that transition even more difficult.

    I do ultimately wonder if we actually use all 3 1st round selections.

    1. Dahlin
    2. Svechnikov
    3. Zadina
    4. Hughes
    5. Tkachuk
    6. Wahlstrom
    7. Dobson
    8. Boqvist
    9. Bouchard
    10. Kotkaniemi

    I have concerns about Boqvist because of the concussions. Hughes and Dobson are better all around defensemen than he is though. Bouchard very slightly ahead of Kotkaniemi. IMO it's pretty much because I'd prefer a defenseman at 9 and not a forward.

    11. Ty Smith
    12. Joel Farabee
    13. Joseph Veleno
    14. Vitali Kravtsov
    15. Bode Wilde
    16. Barrett Hayton
    17. Dominik Bokk
    18. Grigori Denisenko
    19. Akil Thomas
    20. Alexander Alexeeyev

    The Lias Anderson safe pick will be Smith or Farabee

    Huge concerns about the concussions. And beginning to get bad feelings about Bouchard. Which is why I expect one to be there and for the Rangers to pick them. Dobson has always been my choice but beginning to think that Kotkaniemi would be the choice if draft goes as you lay out and Dobson is gone. The other thing about Kotkaniemi is that he has size and Gorton seems to like that. At least based on what he did in Boston.

    Farabee may not be a poor choice. Safer may not be worse.

    If Dobson is gone, that's almost certainly good for us. I keep hearing people saying that the Wings are in love with Bouchard, so imo it'll be one of Wahlstrom, Boqvist or Hughes that falls to us. Which would be nuts, and I'd be exuberant

    Wanted Noah in feb/march still want him now. Unfortunately, seems like some of the teams in front of us may want him as well.

    That would be the only positive. I just don't see Wahlstrom dropping to us. I hope i'm wrong. Also hope i'm wrong about Hughes not dropping.
    As I type this Dobson destroying Regina and its 4-1 Titan now.

    I would like Bouchard over Boqvist or Hughes.

    Maybe you could fire some emails off to Jim Benning.

    Because he’s bigger?

    He’s easily the worst of the 3 and has the lowest floor.

    For real.

    If EK wants to come here that’s awesome. I’d be happy to give him a fat contract on July 1 2019 and keep the assets.

    Which scenario would you prefer:

    A)

    9. Noah Dobson
    26. Serron Noel or Denisenko


    B)


    9. Oliver Wahlstrom
    26. Bode Wilde or Nils Lundkvist (just because I love his name)

    Bouchard is literally neither of those three descriptors.
