    I hope NYR get the 1st overall pick.

    They “deserve” it more than any other team I can think of.

    Anywhere but Arizona and Edmonton.
    My guess is 1 will be a gift to Colorado from Ottawa and the other will end up in either Vancouver or LA.

    Homer pick is the Avs for Hughes. Perfect situation. Can slot in behind MacKinnon's line and there won't be huge pressure to change the franchise, won't match up against other teams top defenses. Can just play and learn from guys MacK and Rantanen.

    Hughes to the Flyers, Kakko to the Devils, Dach to the RedWings. Cozens to NYR.
    Keep them out of the western conference please.

    Yup. Would they put Landeskog on his line to spread out the scoring more ?

    Hughes to the NYR. Badly need a marquee young talent to build around.

    Kakko to Arizona. Just so they have a chance to be good whenever the NHL decides to relocate them.

    Not the point of the thread. But Eberle aside the other 3 were trash until they were developed by their current team... as will Pulju and Nurse when they’re inevitably moved lol

    I’ve watched two cups in LA since I became a fan 30 years ago.

    I hate to ask for anything more but I think Hughes in LA would be a good rebrand.

    Kings need to rebuild in the worst way.

    This is a weird kind of draft year where most of the really bad teams/potential top draft spots (+ Colorado) all have very legit #1C's. Chicago, LA, detroit, Philly, STL, Florida, Colorado would all be nice landing spots for hughes. All those teams have #1C's already that can handle big time workloads against opposing top lines and allow him to develop gradually.

    My vote would probably be Chicago, as I think playing next to Kane every day would do a lot for his development.

    Kakko would be great for the Devils.

    I wish the Habs would tank and get Kakko but we’re hellbent I’m getting the second wildcard and losing in the first round. Kakko in Montreal would be great as he would have plenty of Finns in the locker room to help him adjust to life in the NHL. Him and Kotkaniemi would also make a great duo. He’s the sniper we need too. Colorado would also be great fit and is the most likely option.

    Kane's gonna teach Hughes how to handle being a smaller, shifty guy in this league. And Toews will be able to shelter the **** out of them for the next few years.

    Idiot Canucks management of the time refused to draft Valeri Bure, choosing Libor Polasek.

    Kakko would compliment that top6 really well.

    Kakko would be a great price for Florida after barely missing Rantanen, which was a big hit to their HF fans.

    In this scenario, you'd like to see them go out and get a UFA like Stone to help the transition. We also have Kaut in the minors who could be looking at playing time next year. Also have guys like Compher.

    Ideally you have something like:
    Landeskog-MacKinnon-Rantanen
    Stone-Hughes-Compher

    In five decades of the draft existing, the Rangers have never gotten their crack at this type of prospect. It's our turn.

    We're the one team who hasn't already won multiple Cups or had multiple of these prospects.

    The Rangers haven't had a top 3 pick since 1965... They deserve some star power.

    The Rangers were able to outbid pretty much any team in the league for star free agents for years and years. Excuse me while I play the worlds smallest violin for them.
