Not for you and I to answer.  If we somehow got into the #2 position, then it would be whoever NJ DIDN'T pick.  

 

I think both would be good for this club as we really need an elite #1 center replacement, and both these players at least have that potential.  I think Hischier would be the more exciting player to watch and has the higher offensive ceiling, but I think that given the fact we are a rather ungritty team to play against that perhaps Patrick would be the better choice.  But I also think he has the higher chance for failure/injury issues over Hischier.  

 

Regardless of who is selected, I have trust in Benning he will end up with a very good player at the least.

It seems like all the top 7 or 8 guys are kind of pretty even.

They aren't far off.  I'm certain some of the picks 5-8 will turn out to be excellent players.

 

The scout consensus though is that Patrick and Hischier are slightly above the rest.  But yeah, it's usually a crap shoot when drafting and this draft class exemplifies that.

Who do we "truly" want then: Patrick or Hischier?  

Hischier.
He's the only player that could make geriatric Canucks fans do a double take, thinking they've seen the ghost of Pavel Bure (I know he's still alive :P).

 

The way he slips through cracks and holds onto the puck is a treat to watch. He won't put up as many points as Mitch Marner did last year, but he's not that far off either.

He's no Matthews or McDavid, but he's got Ehlers type ability with better size/strength, better defensive acumen, and seemingly more overall swagger.

JB waiting to see if he will take on one of Dallas' nasty goalie contracts to get a top pick before signing Miller?

Probably expansion - one goalie to protect and it's forbidden to have a deal in place and delay signing the contract to save a protection spot.
