These are players who I believe may be available when the Wild choose and I feel they could be difference makers.
1st round (9th overall)
Power forward who could possibly be a 40 goal scorer in the NHL.
2nd round (39th overall)
Skilled forward with tons of talent and some questions; if he pans out he could be a top line forward.
2nd round (56th overall Was)
Impressive young talent with high offensive upside who will need at least two seasons before turning pro.
3rd round (69th overall)
Great athlete who will be a Gopher for at least 3 seasons.
4th round (99th overall)
Upside talent offensively; should play in the NHL at least as a 3rd line winger.
I agree with This Providence that this would be a great best-case scenario as I don't see any of the first three picks being available at the Minnesota draft number, but they would be great picks and stranger things have happened.
