this draft is loaded with dmen. we wont sniff any of the top guys- i like morgan rielly the most of all these young dmen- with our pick but 2 stand out as guys who might be around and show some offensive flair.
the swede hampus lindholm may not last but if hes there, ya gotta grab this kid. when you watch his stride its so natural and effortless. he can make up chunks of space so quickly and close gaps so fluidly that it appears like hes not even trying to skate hard. his footwork is really solid and his hockey iq is high end. hes a workhorse who seems to be adding some real effective offensive play to his game. hes peaking at the right time after his showing at the combine but im afraid hes off the board by 20.
the other is russian alexei bereglazov. this guy is offensive minded and creative from the blueline. hes huge and he skates very well for having such a lanky frame. i wouldnt say hes overly physical but his reads are very good and he effectively uses his long reach. his shot was clocked at 100 mph and hitting the net doesnt seem to be a problem. he played very well at the recent u18's in brno. he showed great patience and offensive calmness always making the right pass or getting his hard low shot on net. hes a weapon on the pp point as well.
just 2 names to throw out there.
