Chicago: Zach Fucale- Not much explanation needed, Chicago needs a legitimate starting goaltender badly, and doesn't have any promising goaltending prospects in their future. Fucale would make a great pickup for them.

Philadelphia: Josh Morissey- With Pronger's time likely up and not much in terms of defense in their prospect pool, Morissey's offensive skill and high end skating would suit Philadelphia's sytem well.

I don't know enough about a lot of the prospects, but still, it's fun to think about who would do well where, even if it's unlikely that each team picks in the range that would allow it to happen. Although if the entire season is cancelled and there's a draft lottery, then you never know.
Part of the reason an exercise like this makes some sense this year. I like your picks, especially Morrissey in Philly. Good call there.
