2019 NHL Entry Draft in Vancouver, BC

Even if he is BPA? 

Yup.

 

For one, we have Demko and DiPietro. Only 1 can play in a given game. You can play lots of F and D (both of which we are shallow on).

 

For two, it's generally hard to get good value for goaltenders in trades. So picking one with the idea of freeing up another to trade would be foolish.

Kind of cool TSN has the NHL comparables for Turcotte/Zegras as Horvat/Pettersson

As a side note, Caufield comparable is Lionel Messi :rolleyes:

It compares to Pettersson and then states he is a 1B/2A C.... 

hmmmm... dare I suggest Pettersson is a 1A?

Very good question. Do you draft a potential top 6 forward or top 4 defencemen? or swing and go for a potential franchise goaltender? Although we have Marky and Demko, we risk losing one to the expansion draft.

The thing that might scare me off is looking at a player like Jack Campbell who was also said to be a stud.

According to The Hockey Writers in order of best right shot defence man in this draft goes 

 

1. Moritz Seider

2. Victor Soderstrom

3. Lassi Thompson

4. Kaedan Korczak 

 

I hope we get one of these guys

We could end up with two.  Seider at 10 and then one of Thompson or Korczak later?

We need forward prospects. On defense, we already have 4 very good ones in Hughes, Juolevi, Woo and Rathbone. 

 

For forwards, Gaudette, Madden, Gadjo and Lind? Far less quality imo.

Looks like Bob McKenzie doesn’t see much difference between Zegras, Cozens, Dach, Podkolzin, Krebs Boldy And Caufield.   Virtually Identical according to the graph.

2 years ago I wanted Foote as a top 10 pick where people were thinking he might go.

 

Now he's slated for about 38-42 and I'd still consider picking him.

Some serious droppers in McKenzies rankings; 

 

71 - Patrik Puistola 

82 - Pavel Dorofeyev 

 

I’m hoping one of those guys is there when we draft in the third round.

Anyone play this for kicks?  https://fanspeak.com/nhlotc/ ?   It’s fun put not realistic.  I think it might be broken honestly.  But I got Seider in the 2nd round,  Cajkovic In the 3rd, Fagemo in the 4th and Martin Has in the 5th.   

While fun to do, something tells me its a little inaccurate lol ..

 

Bowen Byram at 10th

Spencer Knight at 40th

Tobias Bjornfot at 71st

Seider has moved up considerably from low 20s to 15 which is an average so some teams probably have him as high as 10 and others as low as 20. Also interesting there is a run of 5 defensemen in a row which means they are interchangeable based on what a team believes.

 

Assuming Mckenzies rankings are the most accurate in terms of a mock draft my choices would be as follows

1st - Zegras/Seider/Caufield

2nd - Nicholas Robertson -> rated much higher on most scouting services and in my opinion is gonna be a Brendan Gallagher mold

3rd - Pavel Dorofeyev -> would be criminal to not pick him up here if he is still available ..a second round talent for sure

I'm not as crazy about Zegras or Caufield for us (Boldy or Newhook are more my speed), but I agree about your 2nd and 3rd options.

We need to come away with at least one of Dorofeyev, Hoglander, Puistola, N. Robertson, or Grewe.

Ironically Craig Button gave Newhook a bad grade on his skating.

Therefore, if you have a choice between a few, pick the kid with the most character and desire to improve and win (aka Bo, Boeser, Petey) and you'll have the BPA - easier said then done but this is why interviews matter, why scouting little details beyond everyone's over used cliche of  'edgework matters. Scout's see how a kid 'battles'....this is what will separate the star, from the average NHLer from the bust. And none of us have any insight into that from watching you tube highlights and reading articles.

Lol, by "my speed" I meant my type of player... not their skating necessarily.

Can't say I agree with Craig, though.
