    The Panthers have a good defensive core already, with Gudbranson, Kulikov, Robak, Ellerby, Petrovic, Garrison, etc., but we are light at forward, with Howden, Bjugstad, Shore, McFarland, and Dadanov being our top prospects. If Hopkins and Landeskog go 1-2, then Larsson should be the pick for the Panthers, IMO. While he fits into a stronger part of our prospect depth, he clearly would be the best player available. Also, the Panthers would look pretty solid in the future with that core playing defense in front of Markstrom.

    So my question to everyone is if Hopkins and Landeskog go 1-2, who do you choose between Larsson, Couturier, or Huberdeau?

    Trade down.

    If they can't, take BPA with Larsson.

    I think the RNH 1/2 Landeskog will happen so it'll be intresting.

    Theres so much that can happen this year, not like other years, can't wait for the draft.

    Tallon loves his big, skilled forwards, so Couturier it is.

    Trade down with the Islanders, we'll take Larsson. You may be able to get Couturier at 5 if the Devils want Huberdeau at 4.

    That may not be possible. I think it's likely the Devils take him if he is available at 4.

    50% Larsson
    30% Couturier
    10% trade down
    10% Huberdeau
     
  14. You take Larsson and dont think twice. If he develops into a top d-man, you can always trade one of Gudbranson or Kulikov too for forward help. Look at what St Louis did with EJ this season (got them a forward like Stewart in return).

    Kulikov and Gudbranson is not enough? Doubt they draft another D

    Larsson will go #2, Landeskog fits perfectly with Tavares and the Isles.

    But if Landeskog does go #2, then you do THIS^ every time. BPA all the way. And Larsson is easily BPA. Hell, He, imo, he has more potential than RNH, but RNH will go #1 because Oilers need a #1 centre, and they are harder to come by than defenseman.

    No, not when you consider this:

    Gudbranson - Larsson
    Kulikov - Robak
    Petrovic - Ellerby/Garrison

    Markstrom

    Trades and signings can always be made to land help up front, but you have to admit that that defense would be one of the top defenses in the league down the road.

    Ha, I made a thread maybe a week ago asking the same thing.

    I think Robak is completely overrated by many Panther fans.

    And the consensus in the other thread is the same as it is here, and that is the team drafts Larsson.

    If Landeskog falls to 3 I can't see Florida passing on him, if they do then I can't see NJ passing on him, if they like somebody else I can see NJ trading down with Ottawa

    Larsson if he makes it to three. Otherwise Couturier over Landeskog.

    I think Couturier i sbetter than Landeskog, but there's no way Landeskog passes on Landeskogs' intangibles and the prospect of finally getting a winger for Tavares.
