Eklund will fall to us.  He's listed as 5'10".  Smaller guys seems to drop more often than not.  He's sounds like a better version of Hogz.

Very possible.

 

Look at Caufield. Easily top 5 talent that fell because he’s small.

No way Buffalo agrees to that!

 

But yes - if we could make it work from a cap standpoint, and Buffalo was on board with that, then I’d be on board.

Can someone get Mad Mike Milbury the job as Buffalo's GM? Then that trade would fly, all day long!

Johnson or Mctavish.  Edvinsson if we're going for D.

To be honest, I don’t think Edvinsson will be there by the time we’re up.  Carson Lambos has really impressed me so far.  I think he could be one of the hidden gems in this draft.

Easy, whomever is left.

If you were Benning, who would you (realistically) pick at the #9 spot?   (Assuming that guys like Power, Luke Hughes, Clarke, Edvinsson, and the other general consensus top 8 picks get selected)?

I've said a number of times, with how little data we have on the kids this year, due to a lot of them having very short seasons, I would be completely good with us trading the pick for immediate help on the blueline.

 

If there's someone that we can scoop from a cap strapped team, who could slot in immediately on the blueline, really good with that idea.

Given Caulfield’s success, along with the general trend of the NHL, I wonder if NHL GM’s this time around will pass on the smaller guys this time around?

Then we’ll take advantage and take someone like McTavish or Guenther.

My vote would go for Hampus Lindholm depending on the overall asking price.  Seth Jones would cost way too much and would also likely come with a 9 million+ AAV after next season and so I’d much rather target a guy like Hampus Lindholm.

Lol please

I’d put Hughes, Kakko, Dach, and Zegras as the only players ahead of him from a pure skill standpoint.

 

Have you seen the hands on the guy?

I take Reinhart (with an extension signed) and Ristolainen for our 1st, DiPietro  and Eriksson.

buffalo would want more. Either a bonafide nhler or top prospect. That package should get us one or the other.

Personally, I would call Buffalo and see what it takes to pry the #1 pick and get a big elite Dman. After that call, we see if we can afford it.

I am tired of watching us draft the 7 dwarfs.
