    If that's the case it is 12 days and 1.5 minutes for me to subscribe to all Habs games the next season. Only to find out they are loaning him to Frölunda one more season.

    Man my heart would skip a beat if everything stays the same and Daly says “with the 4th pick, the Arizona Coyotes”

    I emailed a Swedish friend who's involved in Swedish hockey and asked about Grewe, he told me to keep an eye out for Alexander Holtz. Best attacking player from Sweden in a long time. He's 2020 prospect, born in 2002. He also said that Grewe is really good but that Holtz will be better.

    3 players I really want us to draft.

    Rasmus Dahlin
    Joel Farabee
    Rasmus Sandin

    Farabee will go mid first round so we need to get another first via Pacioretty?

    Sandin will go late first.

    Ever since I saw Holtz' thread on the my board, I've been following him on the score sheet. Guy looks like he'll give Lafreniere a run for his money, he's been scoring everywhere. His scoring this year was ridiculous. Can't wait to watch him next year.

    Thanks for the info on Grewe, as well. I was wondering what the pulse was in Sweden because even if this is an exhibition game, he seems very skilled.

    The absolute mayhem HFBoards would be in would be a spectacle in itself.

    That commercial break before the top 3 are announced would drive me nuts.

    Not bad but we are loaded on wing. Dahlin is exactly what we need.

    Svechnikov would be our best forward right now

    Zhuravlyov still looking good. Hope he keeps it up during the real games. He was one of my standouts at the 5 nations.

    Zhuravlyov is such a lovely new age defenseman.

    Is Bogdan Zhilyakov playing much? He's a beauty dark horse for me.

    Not sure if they are comparable, I feel Rantanen has more skill, but he and Kotkaniemi have comparable draft year numbers in the Finnish league.

    If you 100% believe he is a centre, you can justify taking him between 4-10.

    Kotkaniemi is a lot more active and a lot less reliant on his skills. Rantanen is, at times, Pacioretty like. Kotkaniemi is always active and he just works well overall. If there's anything, Kotkaniemi's offense might be more translatable.

    Rantanen's claim to fame is his AHL d+1 production though.

    We are not loaded anywhere. That's a myth.

    Good thing with Kotkaniemi is you can teach skating. And it's probably not that much worse than Rantanen's at 17, if even, who from the little I remember wasn't the best technical skater either.

    If he did, I didn't notice it. I saw him paired on Zamula's right, but all of their D got some ice time (Galenyuk, Zhuravlyov, Misyuk, Malyshev, Zamula, Zhilyakov, Okhotyuk, Romanov, Zorkin all played). Galenyuk-Zhuravlyov I would guess had the most (Zhuravlyov was clearly the better defender of the group), then Malyshev and whoever he was paired with (which was usually Misyul).

    Other than that, he had an assist on Zavgorodny's PP goal. But it wasn't much of an assist lol. He was mostly paired with Zamula and both did a decent enough job with the time they did play, Zamula moreso than Zhilyakov, who rushed his decisions and was overpowered at times. I'm not putting too much stock into the exhibition games though. I mean Lundkvist was pretty meh and Boqvist was ok, even if clearly the most skilled guy on the ice.

    Outside of that, for Sweden, Gustafsson (who I'm not much of a fan of) was probably the best forward with Berggren. Grewe and Hoglander showed some good things. On defense, so did Johansen and Andersson.

    Our boy Ishkakov was awesome as usual. Marchenko was very good as well, he also has some great hands and I hope we take a chance on him as his skating is not nearly as bad as some say. Outside of that, Zavgorodny was good again, but I still have my doubts his game ever translates.

    Absolutely. If he's a center going forward, he's comfortably the best in the draft(assuming Wahlstrom stays at wing, which I think he will).

    And Kotkaniemi's also 9 months younger than Rantanen was.

    Still just an exhibition game but another tournament like his last, along with his stellar playoffs, Marchenko is bound to turn some heads.
    He needs to stahp right meow. Let them sleep.
