First round there aren't any that are even close.

But the second round, there's a ton that should get consideration from our scouts IMO: John Gibson (US U-18), Chris Gibson (Chicoutimi), Samu Perhonen (Finland), Magnus Hellberg (Sweden). I think we're overdue to take a shot at another dman as well, and ther are plenty of them around #12 worth looking at.

I'm fairly OK with JR keeping the pick and even taking a gamble with it. Gamble being more the Mark Scheifele, Jamie Oleksiak type picks. Please no Tyler Biggs unless it's in the 2nd round.
