    With the CHL starting up in a few days, USHL in a week and a half, and CJHL and Europe already underway, we can put any discussion regarding draft eligible guys here. It's a very strong top end of the draft, and seems to me to have some decent depth. I believe it's safe to say we will be picking somewhere in the 16-31 range by the time we arrive at the draft with some trades moving forward.

    Sens as of right now are looking at:

    (2) 2nd round picks. One looking to be high 30's (Ott), the other we can put near ~47 (Fla/SJS), depending on how you think Florida/San Jose will finish

    (1) 3rd round pick (Pitt)

    (1) 4th round pick (Ott)

    (1) 5th round pick (Ott)

    (1) 6th round pick (Ott)

    (2) 7th round picks (Ott & Cgy)

    Should San Jose miss the playoffs we will receive their 1st.

    Should get a first for each of the Stone and Duchene trades. But then again we didn’t get a 19’ first for Karlsson LOL

    Pretty sure we all know how this thread will go.

    I hate not having a 1st, nothing to look forward to.

    Duchene + Stone + 2nd for Mtl 1 st?

    At this point it wouldn’t be a surprise

    I'm not sure if you missed it, you think its unlikely or you just want to be negative but if SJ misses the playoffs this year we get their 2019 1st.

    Love everything I've seen out of the top C prospects this year.

    Hughes, Dach, Cozens and Turcotte all look like they have #1 C potential.

    Loved what I've seen from Tkachuk since we drafted him, but I still wish we had kept our pick.

    I'd be ok with drafting Tkachuk if we held on to Karlsson. I think the team, with Karlsson had a darkhorse chance if the goalies rebounded.

    Without Karlsson, I have no clue why we didn't give up the pick, other than to keep the con going for as long as possible.

    If SJ misses the playoffs this year (and as stated, we get their 2019 pick) it will therefore be a lottery pick. Now I know it's unlikely but stranger things have happened and there is a reason why they play the games.

    Some great talent coming out of the west coast this year. Will definitely be following.

    Yeah, Cozens/Dach/Hughes would be unbelievable, and 1 will likely be available at 5th.

    All we can do, spilt milk and all.

    There are a lot of guys I liked out of the Q last year who will likely be taken around our 2nds. Lavoie and Cajkovic are not going to fall to our range, and I'm not a huge fan of Parent. I have yet to see Nussbaumer or Knyazev play, though I'd assume the may be in our range.

    Samual Poulin - Big offensive power winger. Will be most likely of this group to be taken mid 1st or higher.

    Jakob Pelltier - Probably a top 5 skilled guy in a very small frame. He's my pick for most points in the CHL for draft eligible players.

    Nikita Alexandrov - Shifty pivot who came on in the last month of the season and into the playoffs. I'm not a huge fan of his, but feel he will be valued somewhere in the range of our 2 picks.

    Brett Budgell - An offensive winger who plays a chippy game and goes to the dirty areas. Very good hands, passing and shot. Skating needs some work.

    Colton Ellis - Nova Scotian goaltender who was receiving a lot of praise last year, who was shipped out due to current Sen Kevin Mandolese, wouldn't be surprised if he was one of the first goalies taken.

    This draft is so stacked. Id rather a #12 pick in this draft than a #4 in last years.

    This is gonna end up like the 2015 draft imo. Crazy skill.

    If we trade Stone or Duchene at the TDL from a team looking to make a run we should get a 2019 1st back but it will be a late one.
    I could see the Sens taking that 1st, and a 2nd and possibly a B- prospect or that first and a B+ prospect to move up in the Draft to get a 15+ pick. If we do that we will definitely get a higher end prospect.

    This is the one that stings the most IMO. As a fan this one really sucks. I can only imagine how PD feels. Wow.
