I'm less enthusiastic and give them a B+. I see a potential a 3 NHL'ers in there with 2 playing a significant role.
Having said that and since everybody did it yesterday, I would have expected them to try to move up 2 ranks in order to get Cormier who was still there at 54. Missiaen is an interesting project, and Johnson is this year's Kishel with maybe a little more upside.
Let's hope now that Trunev crosses over and plays in the Q. I would be thrilled to follow him this year.
