1 EDM RNH: EDM goes for the potential Patrick Kane/Sakic type of player, might not be ready as of now. 2 COL Larsson: With EJ in the ranks, this gives them a deadly combo. 3 FLA Huberdeau : Just my gut feeling, seems to be the flavor of the month 4 NJ Landeskog: Fits NJ's style of play extremely well, he'll be paired with Parise and Zajac as soon as next year. 5 NYI Murphy: This might be the surprise of the draft, NYI is stacked with young forwards and needs a pmd along side Hamonic, future is starting to look good. 6 OTT Couturier: If this happens, good for Ottawa, the guy is a more offensive Jordan Staal, would be a great pick 7 ATL Strome: Simply go with the BPA and D isn't really a need, they are more in need of a player which can score 30-35 eventually 8 CBS Zibanedaj: He could even go to ATL IMO, too much hype and he actually deserves it, CBS is in need of all positions as of now and go BPA here. 9 BOS Hamilton: Boston gets lucky here, Seguin, Hamilton and Knight for Kessel, where do I sign? 10 MIN Armia: Great fit, will play alongside fellow finns. 11 COL Beaulieu: Along with Larsson, they go for Beaulieu and suddenly possess one of the best young D core in the NHL. 12 CAR Oleksiak: Yes, they are known for passing on D in the first round, but here's a guy that might land in the top 10 IMO and the Offensive talent after Armia falls off a bit, he has huge potential and upside although a risky pick 13 CAL Siemens : great fit, they need big physical D here, can learn well from a vet like Regehr 14 DAL Scheifele: Big center with size, that plays a 2 way game, great fit for the Stars. 15 NYR Biggs: They have lots of young talented up and comers but none with such size, I wouldn't be surprised if he falls off though 16 BUF McNeill: Doubt Buffalo passes on Mcneill who would have been a great pick for the HAbs 17 MTL Jenner: Habs select the safe 2 way player, the kind of player they've been drafting for the past 7-8 years now. 18 CHI Bartschi: BPA here, not a believer in Bartsch's but he won't get past 20 19 EDM Brodin: EDM picks a stud D that could go earlier if someone is in love, a great two way D, won't be a star but will log 22-25 min a game at some point. 20 PHO Jensen: Boom or bust IMO could get drafted as far as 15 I'd say but I see him going to Phoenix 21 OTT Saad : They go for need and BPA here, a big player that can be top 6, needs to use his size, they'll need to be patient 22 ANA Morrow: A safe pick here, potential top 4, nothing fancy though 23 TB Mayfield: They are stacked on O and need some young D,many compare him to Seimens and he's a tiny bit bigger, riskier pick but the upside is there, could perhaps be BPA here on some team's radars 24 TOR Phillips: Played on a stacked team, yes but he definitely has first round talent, Toronto takes him here 25 DET Gibson: Might be a reach but they are in need of a goalie for now and for the future more than anything else 26 SJ Rattie: Risky type of pick IMO, but at this point might be a good gamble 27 PIT Puempel: A wild card, might go top 15, but my gut feeling has him being a late 1st, Pitt won't pass on such a talented scorer 28 TOR Grimaldi: Toronto goes for the Spark plug and hopes the gamble pays off due to lack of size, but can potentially be a 60-70 point player, reminds of of Briere pre-draft. 29 WAS Khokhlachev: Washington keeps on stacking Russian players to keep their core happy and hoping to motivate Kuznetsov into coming over. 30 VAN Musil: They wanted Tinordi last year, they go for Musil this year which is a comparable player.
