    Since he's made the NHL after his D+1 season (which is a little bit surprising), where do you see Valimaki going in a re-draft today? Personally, I could see anywhere from the 8-15 range, but I want to get a read of other people before I vote myself :laugh:

    not sure, remember theres a lot of risers in this re draft (tolvanen, thomas, chytil, frost) so that would skew things somewhat

    Just because you make the Nhl early doesn't make you a better player. By that logic Nolan Patrick is better than Pettersson for example. So for now he should still go 16-20 because while they haven't played yet the guys in front of him can still easily become better players in the long run.

    Reminder of the top 16 of that draft:

    Nico Hischier
    Nolan Patrick
    Miro Heiskanen
    Cale Makar
    Elias Pettersson
    Cody Glass
    Lias Andersson
    Casey Mittelstadt
    Michael Rasmussen
    Owen Tippett
    Gabriel Vilardi
    Martin Necas
    Nick Suzuki
    Cal Foote
    Erik Brannstrom
    Juuso Valimaki


    I would say top 10.

    Way too early for this, but I'd say 11-15 if I had to give an answer.

    Yes but if you make it early AND play well, you can certainly pass some people. Not all the people in front of him will make it.

    I don't think he's done enough to warrant a top 10 pick. Theres still a lot of guys not in the NHL id take over him.

    Also Yamamoto is playing in the top 6, I guess he's would go 5th OA in a redraft.

    Because 1 goal while playing in the top 6 warrants going to top 5?
    Valimaki is in the 11-15 rangr for me, but def on the rise

    For sure, but on top of making the NHL he's also looked really good doing it

    It was quite obviously hyperbole

    The real question is where would Jokiharju go.

    And Valimaki isnt better than Joker.

    It's kinda hard to say. I liked him a lot higher than where he actually went at the draft in the first place, and he's been trending pretty strongly upward since then. But then...it's still super early, and i think a lot of the teams that picked others ahead of him in the first place would probably still want to roll the dice on "their guy"...even though Valimaki cracked the NHL already. The value of his position being a potential tipping point, but i think a lot of the guys ahead of him still have teams holding out hope they'll stick as equally valuable Centers as well.

    I'd say comfortably Top-10 if i were drafting, but i had him Top-10 in the first place...so i'm clearly not a great measuring stick for what a literal redo of the draft would look like either.

    But such an odd one, Valimaki has been very solid defensively (other than the 1st game) and has started to show a little flare on the offensive side. While kailer is supposed to be an offensive winger and he only has 1 pt to his name

    Probably right around where he went I would say.

    He has done well and passed a couple of guys that were drafted ahead of him, but there are of course also risers that were drafted behind him who I would suggest have passed him like Comtois and Aho.

    Right about where he went. He passed some guys ahead of him but then there are guys behind him that probably get picked before. I voted 11-15.

    I wanna say 6-10 but 11-15 is more accurate. Probably closer to 11 than 15.

    He made the bottom pairing on a team know for it's defense more than anything. He's not exactly ripping it up either, but playing as a bottom pairing D with sheltered minutes doesn't mean anything when it comes to future projections, especially one year after the draft, and especially given the defensive position.
