I don't quite know exactly where to put Jaskin at this point, but he's an intriguing prospect to be sure. 1st overall pick by the KHL, which has seen more of him than anyone else... that can't be discounted at all.
I like Jaskin quite a bit, but I will always be hesitant when drafting someone with skating issues. But boy is he hard to knock off the puck. If he improves his skating he will be a huge steal for whoever takes him, but again thats a big "if".
Khoklachev would also be a good choice, with the benefit of having another russian along with Avtsin, also helps that both were once known as the four faces of the MHL. I like him as well, but Grimaldi is my personal preference.
I like jensen a bit more then Miller, but that is more of a skill over physicality preference. They are getting pretty even on my list the more I debate it.
Trading down is my preference, since I like quite a few players, but if we stay, Grimaldi is my fave.
