    Unless you want to have another Doug Wickeneiser vs Denis Savard. Imagine if HFboards existed back then, we'd be looking at at least a million pages.

    Would not mind another top 10 pick this year. Lafreniere, Raymond, Lundell, Perfetti, Byfield, Lapierre, Drysdale, Barron.

    Holloway too, very strong player, would fit perfectly on this team made of small wingers...

    You guys think Lafrenière could become a centre

    He's perfectly fine at LW.

    From what I saw in the Hnlinka-Gretz tourney, Perfetti & 'Jimmy' Hendrix Lapierre were the best forwards for Team Canada. Byfield for me needs to show more. The skills are there to see. He just teases with what he can do, but as of right now, it seems that something is missing. Hopefully, it is just a product of being among the youngest kids in this draft class.

    Yeah, sometimes Byfield is forcing plays or is trying to do to much... He has impressive size and skills set, it will be interesting to see how much his game evolve...

    He's been like that for 3 years, won't hold my breath.

    Looking like a strong draft for Russia. I like the potential of these guys:
    Askarov (high 1st)
    Amirov
    Pashin
    Ponomaryov
    Gushiin
    Khusnutdinov
    Nikishin

    Hard not to like Perfetti , his Hlinka really solidified his top 5 status in my book, for now at least. He's got a 30+goals a year wrister, easy.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if he ended up going around 8th OA.

    There’s quite a few ifs in that number but I can’t see Perfetti going before Lafrenière, Byfield, Raymond, Drysdale and probably a few more guys.

    It’s looking likely there will be a tier of players like Lundell, Askarov, Holtz, Lapierre and Perfetti fighting it out for Top 10 drafting spots.

    I know I will get vilified by many around here but my number #1 target is Yaroslav Askarov. What a special talent and competitiveness in this kid.

    It looks like a terrible draft for the Russians (at least in the first round).

    This will be a Canada vs. Sweden affair.

    Finland forever alone. One of my finnish buddies was all ''maybe Lundell will be picked first if Kakko isn't this year.''

    He cries everytim.

    I was mostly comparing it to last year. Askarov, Amirov, Pashin and Ponomariov have decent chance of being in the 1st round.

    Looks more like the 2018 than the 2019 draft for them imo.

    It's early, right now I only have Askarov and Amirov in the first.

    The good news is that the NHL choose the good year to put the draft in MTL. They is alote of talent in the Q so if Habs management have a call from Molson to take some Q guys ...

    Then they should be fired frankly.

    I could bet my car that in the 4-7 round, they will have more Q guy drafted by MTL then the past years

    why's that, because of the drafting being at the bell center or the depth of the Q this year?

    Mix of the 2. They will give the nana to the fans in the late round. Look at how many pick they have.
