    I asked this in the Sabres forum... but considering these three, which order would you take them in. Curious because it looks like Buffalo will finish without being able to select Couturier or Nugent-Hopkins, so one of these three appear likely for the Sabres.

    My personal opinion

    1) Ryan Strome

    2) Victor Rask

    3) Jonathan Huberdeau

    As a Sabres fan, I would take Strome first, if not him then Rask. Strome looks so damn talented, and looks like he could potentially be a solid all-around player and leader too. I haven't seen a lot of him though, nor have I seen much of the other two, so my opinion probably isn't the most valid.

    I'd say Huberdeau. Rask isn't comparable to Huberdeau nor Strome but people are saying Huberdeau could end up getting picked before Couturier. On nhl.com there is 3 mock drafts... Huberdeau is ranked 5th, 6th and 14th while Strome is ranked 19th, 21st and 8th. In the recent CSS NA rankings Huberdeau is 4th while Strome is 19th...(Rask is 9th in the Europe Rankings)......

    Id say its clear you'd take Huberdeau but thats just my opinion

    Those mock drafts on nhl.com is imo pretty bad. Jaskin isn't even in the top30 of any of them, and Strome is way too low on 2 out of 3. I don't like CSS rankings either, but I'm no expert.

    I'm not sure at the moment if I would take Strome or Huberdeau, but Rask is third to me.
