    Rossi is also almost the maximum age for this draft.

    It wouldn’t surprise me that on the right team he pushes for an NHL spot immediately.

    I don’t want to sound like a dick but that’s the absolute worst way of going about the draft.

    You don’t pick a guy for what he’ll give you in the next 24 to 36 months. You pick the guy that you think will be the best player in the long run and Rossi has top#5 potential.

    There will be always be old school scouts that favor size over skills.

    DeBrincat tore it up in juniors and dropped to 2nd round.

    This draft is going to be so unpredictable after the top 2 go.

    Just a note that Holtz is listed in the 6' 180 lbs range . Wouldn't call him small

    You are right. I probably meant Raymond instead of Holtz and got the Swedish prospects mixed up.

    5&6 pick isn’t overpayment enough? That’s tough to pass up. Gotta think if the sens would ever offer it? Probably not because that’s bigly overpay

    There are a ton of small forwards in the first round of the draft. Getting three forwards below 6 foot wouldn't be the ideal result. If at 6 the choice would be between Holtz, Raymond, Perfetti or Rossi, I would opt for Holtz. He fits a need and offers at least average size.

    Being small is one thing but if you’re a small player but you play like you’re 6"3, size isn’t an issue. I’ve seen the opposite as well, meaning that guys who are 6"4 played like they were 5"8.

    Rossi plays the game the right way and isn’t afraid to get his nose dirty. I’d be shocked if he doesn’t go in the top #5, unfortunately for us.

    I certainly agree with you for a single player. Rossi alone is fine.

    Add Rossi, Perfetti and Jarvis to Hughes, Bratt and Gusev and the lack of size of each individual player starts to matter more.

    And yet, you’re in favour of adding Dunn to our cast that includes Butcher, Smith, Subban, Severson and Mermis?

    Drafting based off size is probably the last criteria you want to go by. I’ll take talent over size every time and our scouts will do the same, which is comforting to know.

    Lets just say that we’re able to get Rossi and Perfetti with our 6th and 10th overall pick. You wouldn’t be thrilled to eventually see a line of Perfetti-Hughes-Rossi? Those 3 guys together would make the opposing lines so dizzy, they wouldn’t know who to cover.

    Idk if the two inches in height are enough to take him over Rossi if you think the skillset is comparable. Rossi to me is Barzal 2.0.

    Or get caved in the D-Zone. A line must work with and against the puck.

    Maybe we take Rossi at 6 and Quinn at 10 since we are stock piling the 67’s

    Literally none of those guys have a size issue what lol. Height doesn't really matter for a forward.

    Barzal is a good comparison but I’d label Rossi to a more aggressive Mitch Marner.

    All in all, whoever takes him in the 1st round will have one heck of a hockey player.

    With the various reports that has Sanderson potentially going in the top #10 and the hype surrounding Askarov, we might have one of the top #8 fall right on our lap at #10.

    Since we are talking Rossi let me promote this guys channel since I’ve watched it a bunch. He speaks for a few minutes on the player and then gives you about 10 minutes of game footage of the player.

    Yeah, he’s very solid and outside of his fierce French Canadian accent, he’s a real treat to listen to.

    I’m set on Rossi. I want him over everyone other than the top 2.

    I have a feeling the season will get cancelled eventually. Does anyone know what would happen with vancouvers draft pick? Would we get it or pushed to next year? I thought the conditions were on playoffs or not

    It’s been debated for weeks what can happen, can’t happen, should happen but until the league comes out of its bunker and says something definitive it’s all up in the air.

    I would bet on Some sort of NHL hockey happening to finish out the season.

    I think for us, this particular trade will be easy. My guess is that the NHL would ostensibly let teams work it out. In our case, I think the original terms would apply. We'd say sure, you can keep the pick, but next year it's unprotected.

    My guess is that Vancouver will happily give us this year's pick at 17 or whatever
