    I know everyone raves about the depth of the defense in this years draft and with the likes of Ebert, Dumba, Murray and Reilly who could blame them. However I have a question, whats the forward group like this year. Specifically what kind of forwards are available, I'm a habs fan and always like to have a knowledgeable idea for who they could draft if the season goes belly up.

    Obviously I know about Yakupov and how great he is, but who else is available?

    And I guess are the forwards available worth a first round pick or is it a lighter year.

    more of a 2-way player in my opinion

    ... to the OP, as a Habs fan myself, I'm keeping an eye on Emil Lundberg, big center, offensively gifted, plays good defensive game as well, not the best skater though

    Collberg will surprise a lot of people this year.

    Frk needs to get healthy. Dealing with concussion issues at the moment.

    Galchenyuk has also caught the injury bug but I still think he will be a top 10 pick.

    I feel like he is going to fall because of his injury, and the team sitting at 8, 9 or 10 if he is still available, are going to get the steal of the draft.

    Yes I think him falling that much will be a steal.

    Collberg could be a big riser if the age-racists of Frolunda let him play more than 6 minutes/game. He is good enough to be a contributor to any SEL-team.

    Don't know if they age-racists, but they have a problem getting any production at all from their juniors lately. Seems strange to me since they have good juniors (won both j-20 and j-18 championships). Some poster with more knowledge about Frölunda like KRM, can tell you if it's just pure coincidense or some other issue.
