    Prospects came back ... Tage Thompson, Reilly Smith, uh Johnathan Davidsson... just not centers. Looking back these were some god-awful deals ... Sabres got Sobotka and Berglund and Boston got Loui Eriksson...

    So what kind of team would trade Marco Rossi for Tyler Seguin or Matt Duchene besides a bad one?

    I always wonder to myself what would’ve been if we had sent Buffalo Nino and our 2018 1st for O’rielly. Instead we turned those assets into Johansson and Rask

    The other funny thing is if Buffalo picked any other player available at 24 I think they would have done better than they did.

    I think teams are locking down young centers even more now in part because of how bad those deals went for Boston, Buffalo, and Ottawa. What is the reason is there to trade young or in prime one? Can anybody name any team in the NHL that needs or even wants to trade a halfway decent center under the age of 28?

    If "all in" consists of spending 5 minutes to look up the trades to happen in the past 16 months or so? Then yes, I really went all in.

    This has gone off the rails. I do not know if you think the Wild have no issue at center, or have an issue at center because JEE was a bad pick, or Wild have now solved their center problem because we now trade for Galchenyuk, or will solve them by grabbing a middling guy thrown in the roster & cap reshuffling mix.

    If it will address your concern, I can call Rossi, Lundell, and Zary the "BPA" picks. I rank those guys above everybody but Laf, Byfield, and Drysdale.

    There's no denying that the Wild desperately need top 6 centers. The problem with your logic on the matter is twofold.
    1. You seem to think that centers are some magical unicorn that are impossible to find and or acquire. This simply insn't true. There are plenty of teams that seem to have no problem finding a top 6 center anywhere they look. There are also plenty of teams where Carson Soucy would play on their top pair, does that make defensemen impossible to attain for those teams? Or, does it mean that those teams just aren't as good as the Wild at finding Defensemen?

    2. You seem to think that just drafting a center in the 1st round will solve the problem. News flash, Fletcher already tried your theory, he ended up with a 3rd line center and 3rd line right wing while better non-centers were drafted after these guys. The Wild would really benefit from getting a 1st line quality player from their 11th overall pick this year. It's not impossible to do that with a pick in that range, but if you limit your decision to just one position, it certainly becomes harder.

    In a perfect world, Anton Lundell is in fact the next Mikko Koivu and the Wild take him 11th overall and everybody wins. What happens if he's the next Kyle Brodziak?

    Just to prove how silly your theory really is- What happens if the Wild do take Marco Rossi, and he becomes an Artemi Panarin/Patrick Kane level winger in the NHL? Using your logic, that would be a bad pick by the Wild.

    In JEE's draft sure with White, Boeser, Konecny, Beuavillier, etc. I still think (hope) Eriksson Ek jumps in production and snags the 2C spot going forward.

    I'm not sure I would take any of the 1st round forwards taken after Kunin in his draft:

    Bellows
    Gauthier
    Rubstov
    Borgstrom
    Jones
    Thompson
    Tufte
    Howden
    Frederic
    Steel

    Maybe Steel? Chychrun is the only dman I would take before Kunin of the 1st rounders taken after our pick.

    Yes.

    Lundell and Zary aside, Stutzle seems like one of the more overrated prospects this year. I do not think he has pulled away from the rest of that winger group like in some mocks.

    Stutzle looks really good, and can probably play C. You take him in a flash over anyone not named Lafreniere, and MAYBE Byfield and Rossi.

    So if the Pens lose to MTL in the play in series, we don't get their 1st till 2021?

    Another good one. I really like your style of editing however the Lundell video music has been my favorite so far. The upbeat music with your editing tickles me fancy.

    Thanks :) I really appreciate the support!

    I'm still playing around with my style but I'll try to replicate the Lundell video in future videos

    Here's my newest reel for Kaiden Guhle :) one of the most complete defenders in the draft

    Enjoy and comment if there's a player you're hoping to see next!

    I think you're wrong on this. Pens would keep their pick this year if they lose to MTL.
