Size and power is something we need to consider, but if you are going to gamble entirely on that it shouldn't be when there's still high end skill left. If this draft is as deep as everyone says, maybe someone who fill fit what we need will fall through to the 2nd round...
I agree that we shouldnt draft ''lucics'' in the 1 round.. You should try and get a game breaker.

But in the second round, they're my priority. If Biggs would've falled to us in the second round(if we had a pick-_-) I would've wished we picked him.

Maybe even Wilson/Sam over Collberg.

Bleacher Reports don't know squat about hockey.
But I agree with you. With that many skilled forward we should try and get some toughies..
