    Now that the 2020 draft is in the books, time to move onto 2021. (Please sticky this)

    So is the battle for 1st overall between Power and Raty?

    Supposed to be a weak draft. So of course now it will be the draft where we add more 1sts through Danault and Tatar.

    Would you imagine we gather extra first picks , into a year who will have low prospect pool and that alot of kids wont be playing rofl.

    I'm fully expecting it. I actually wouldn't be upset if we traded our 1st to get better help this year.

    Talent quality be low based on majority opinion, but the questions surrounding player development due to the current situation is of even greater concern.

    No franchise player in this draft, which is what makes it poor. It has talent but more of the RNH/Landenskog variety upfront, but it looks like it has terrific talent on D.

    I don't think it's as bad as 2012, which produced very little in the way of NHLers.

    I think it's more in line with 2011 (the RNH draft).

    It's going to be a very tough class to follow since a lot aren't even playing yet, so viewings will likely be limited. Plus, all international tournaments have been cancelled; however I understand the WJC will be played in Canada without fans.

    There is another stud goalie in this draft. Sweden's Jesper Wallstedt.

    But otherwise it's Aatu Raty vs an assortment of D for #1 OA, including Brandt Clarke, Carson Lambos, Owen Powers & Luke Hughes. There's also WHL ROY of the year Dylan Guenther (RW).

    Basically, #1 is wide open. There's no real defining player; however, I do think it will produce quality NHLers at an average rate.

    It's an average draft vs a poor one like 2012 or 1999.

    Could we see the first USHL 1st overall pick in Owen Power?

    Bourgault projects mid first round, big fan of this kid, he plays on the Cataractes top line with Bourque and projects as a similar player Mercer is... Could be a realistic target depending where we pick of course...

    Well we have 9 picks in rounds 3/4/5 which is surprising I’m sure will leverage some for 4th line depth this year and probably trade back for more the following year never mind the 2 2nds

    I know we never end picking in the Q, but I also like Zachary L'Heureux. As a roookie last season, he had 20 goals and 33 assists in 55 games. He has 2 goals and 2 assists in 2 games so far this season.

    No...we accumulate 1st round draft picks for the draft in June of 2022... better crop of players. If we need a player there's always free agency.

    Time to go Playstation and trade our 2021 1st rounder to another team for their 2022 1st rounder.

    I'm in the minority, but I thought this year's draft was pretty bad.

    A very good top 13 followed by a bunch of tweener midgets at F and a bad D class overall.

    Won't be active much this year, this draft class is deflating. As I watch games, my eyes are naturally attracted by the 2022s lol. Lots of Shane Wright, lots of Shane Wright watching.

    Some have Brad Lambert ahead of him which is crazy to think if true.
    Two franchise players in one draft is nuts.
