    Hell yeah. Why not burn a 4th rounder on him?

    I'll obviously be thrilled if we win any of the lotteries but that #2 spot will make me uncomfortable. You have to draft Kakko and I'm just not excited about him. There's too much Hanzal in his game. It's just not sexy being strong on the boards anymore. Soft and speedy is what's hot in 2019. Schmaltz is the new sexy and Kakko is the anti-Schmaltz.

    Oh for sure I get that. That’s a very tough spot to be put in.

    But he also looked bad against Kazakhstan in the first relegation game and they chose the backup to play the second. He looked lost in the net.

    Short tournament. Lost confidence. Whatever reasons he didn’t look like much of a prospect from my perspective sitting behind his net. Worst goalie performance in the tournament.

    Then we must be the sexiest team in the league. Time to get ugly. Uggo for Kakko.

    The CHL site has an archived video of the game you can watch for 4 bucks.

    I think it allows you to rewatch it, but yeah not sure if it works in USA.

    Another player that impressed last night was Lavoie.

    Let's say we're picking 10th. You can pick Krebs or you can pick Lavoie. Who do you take?

    Krebs all day.

    As exciting as Byram is, he falls for me because LD. So my top players are Hughes, Kakko, Podkolzin and then Cozens, Dach, Turcotte, and Krebs in some order. That’s my top seven, I think. Lavoie is more in the running with Zegras, Byram, and Boldy for me.

    agreed. Krebs all day long. If we're not picking top 2, I'd rather have Krebs & Turcotte over any of the others.

    I like Krebs a lot. I like his fire. We don't have enough of that.

    But man the list of high end forwards coming from the WHL in recent years is short. For every Barzal there are 10 OHL guys.

    Lavoie would have had to put up bigger numbers to be picked before 15 OA. Tomasino for example is 10 months younger and will outscore Lavoie this year. There's so many risers that an older guy like Lavoie, who seems to have plateaued, will drop as the draft approaches. Legare is an example of a riser from the Q who has passed Lavoie imo.

    The only player in there I would move to that second group is Dach and I'm on the fence for Newhook being in that first group.

    Dach has some issues with skating and first step acceleration, according to McKenzie's midterm rankings.

    That's an immediate "do not draft" for me. Not going down the Strome path again.

    I think his skating is fine. That’s overblown. He plays a different game than Strome. He’s a protypical playmaking 1C who is drawing comparisons to Getzlaf. I have him in that 3-5 range.

    Go back and read my draft year posts on Strome.

    They play the same position but completely different styles. Completely different. I can’t emphasize that statement enough.

    I believe you, just remember OTHER analysts comparing Strome to Getzlaf.

    Hmm, I've heard Getzlaf for Cozens, not Dach though.

    I like draft age Eric Staal as a comparison for Cozens.

    I don’t see skating issues with Dach. Seems like a good skater for his size to me.
