Skjei is also on my "do not select" list. Matheson is a 2nd rounder.
If we move back to Washington's (or Buffalo's) picks I'd like to see Koekkoek and (if available) Collberg or another defenseman. There's plenty of good skaters with physicality. Also, to me, compete level can be a reason to not draft someone (as in a lack of it) but never really a reason to go with someone other than as a tie-break between very close prospects. I'm just not a fan of Zemgus (that goes triple for Tom Wilson).
