Agreed with joe89, Z and D are getting up there, it'd be awesome to get someone capable of replacing either. Barkov would be my top choice but it's impossible to tell where Detroit is picking at this point.. Barkov is a sure top 10.
Im with you on DLR. His offensive potential is still up in the air and I see him as a wing prospect aswell. Right now I wouldn't spend a top20 pick on him, I'd like some more apparent offensive potential that high. I saw he's 1+2 in last two games though after going 1+0 in 17, so maybe he's starting to break out. But if you draft him, you like everything else he brings first and foremost and then hope you hit the jackpot offensively.
If you're gonna trade up, you need to get into lottery pick range I'd say. I sense a lot of interchangeables after the first tier.
