I agree we need a skilled center in the 1st round. We're ok in goalies, we have lots of d-men, couple of good wingers with top-6 potential and bottom-6 forwards. Järnkrok is really our only skilled center with top-6 upside and we can't rely on only him.

In terms of picks, I only know the Finnish prospects and not many realistic guys stand out. Barkov will be top-3 so without a trade that's not going to happen. Next ranked Finn is d-man Rasmus Ristolainen, who will maybe go 5-10, he's like a better and more all-around Sproul. Last Finn looking to go in the 1st is Artturi Lehkonen, a small&skilled winger so doesn't really fill the need. Not very good depth for Finland this year, maybe a goalie or two worth a look but the Wings won't probably pick one again.
