Lays very early 2019 rankings

  1. Lays
    Let me start off by saying I don’t think this is a good draft like a lot of people seem to think. I think it’s about average but I’m not a huge fan so far. The 2018 draft was stacked and I can’t see how some like this draft better. Another thing, it’s hard to find video on some euro guys so far like always so my bad if I’m missing some worthy guys. This is only from what I’ve seen so far from the guys I’ve watched or seen quite a bit of

    If anyone does want to see, here’s my final rankings for last years draft and here’s my first ranking of last years draft

    I’m doing this one a bit earlier, should be fun to see how much things change compared to my final ranking.

    My personal favorite from this draft already is Trevor Zegras. I’ve seen a ton of this kid and he’s usually ranked in the 2nd half of the first round. His offensive creativity is through the roof and his 2 way play is solid. Criminally underrated. Valentin Nussbaumer is also criminally underrated though I can’t really blame anyone for that since he has very little exposure from playing in his league. Watch out for a big year next year from him, I’ve been hyping him up pre-WJC (where he was very good and dangerous consistently despite his point totals.) Lastly, Nils Hoglander is also underrated. Great work ethic, defensive play, hands, and creativity. I’ve been high on this guy for a long time and he’s one of my favorites in this draft.

    Someone to watch out for-Daniil Gutik. Insane skill comined with great size. Should be fun to keep an eye on through the year
