    Who are the early targets?

    Any sleepers?

    Players to keep an eye on?

    I like Byfield because

    1) Literally all the tools you could ever jam in a toolbox
    2) Good local kid

    I agree with this. He'd be a great add.

    With his skills and size, can't imagine he falls below 3rd to be honest.

    Lots of players I really like already in this draft class like Marco Rossi, Anton Lundell, Justin Barron, and Quinton Byfield. It will be fun to see how these players develop next season.

    and then less fun when we realise our pick is juuuuust beneath the guys we really want lol

    aside from lafreniere, lundell is already performing well against adults, and raymond has broken into the frolunda team.

    also, i rarely get excited about goalies, but the guy who i've seen most of who is draft eligible in 2020 is jan bednar. he has broken into the karlovy vary team in the czech top division and they trusted him in the relegation playoffs. we haven't drafted a goalie in the 2nd round (where i reckon he will be picked if his development continues) since jimmy howard. yeah, ok, we did draft mccollum in the 1st round, but in the last decade our highest goalie pick is 80. would be excited to see us buck this trend and take bednar.

    I like Byfield a lot. He has insane puck skills and speed for a guy at 6'4". Lafreniere is obviously #1. When he decides he wants to put the puck some where, whether it's a pass through 3 defenders or a long range snipe, he puts it there. He's a crazy threat at range and is a very good power play quarterback. I'm still trying to get a read on Raymond and Holtz and what their differences are.

    I suppose they've already had a good look at German Tim Stutzle who played with Seider on u20.

    Agreed, I loved what I saw from his highlights this past year. It would be nice to have a 6'4 centerman who can move like he does. He kind of looks like AA (his face) from his Elite Prospects page which was weird lol.

    How likely is Lafreniere to become a C at the next level?

    Today...

    The team is awful and some of the the other awful teams have improved a ton already

    Devils, Hughes plus Subban
    Rangers, kakko plus trouba

    It will be us and Ottawa battling for dead last

    Most top tier players play their position when they get drafted, and he is already dominating the QMJHL, heading into his draft year. He seems more exciting than Jack Hughes to me, but will see.

    True.

    I can see LA but Anaheim still has enough pieces to not be atrocious

    I would look at czech center Jan Mysak, he looks like Hertl on steroids, better talent than Necas. He is youngest captain in Extraliga as 16yo.

    That's a good thing given the forward talent at the top of the draft is phenomenal. I think we'll be in the bottom 5 next year with Anaheim, Ottawa, and probably NJ and LA. If NJ can consistent goaltending I think they're out of the bottom 5 and LA could also bounce out of the bottom 3/5 as well.

    Pronman posted his early 2020 list earlier today and it covers most of the players I'd have listed. A lot can change in years time, but 2020 seems to be mostly Canada/Swedish top end, with some Fins and Russians sprinkled in.

    Who’s projected to go 6th since we’re destined to complete the number of the beast?

    Tons of high end forwards

    Lafreniere, Byfield, Rossi and Perfetti from the CHL.

    Raymond, Holtz, Gunler and Nybeck from the Swedish leagues.

    Lundell from Liiga and Askarov from Russia, best goalie prospect since Price.

    It is absolutely stacked at the top of the draft, best since 2015.
