Yeah I was planning on grabbing a strong defensive LW with one of my next two picks, and then basing my defensive matchups on whether or not the line was stronger down the right or left wing, then going with either Gilmour-Middleton if they're strong down the left, or undrafted LW-Keon if they're strong down the right, but I figured I'd ask and see what others thought, and maybe even consider throwing Krutov on the Keon line....but yeah I'm pretty sure at this point Krutov-Gilmour-Middleton is going to be my top line and they're going to stay together.

Also, that's a very interesting quote. Certainly an exaggeration of annoyance due to Mahovlich's great and high skill level compared to Keon, but a funny quote nonetheless.
