Yea, I'm honestly not a fan of Rychel. He'll be a good player, sure, but his play style just isn't attractive IMO. He will have a very limited use as a grinder and won't work well with our depth that we have in speed. If Erne is off the table, I would rather have us take Kujawinski or Duclair instead of Rychel.

I look at the draft as free agency that will really happen in 2 or 3 years. What I'm trying to say is that a player like Rychel is not needed for us. Erne and Rychel are both very different players as I watch more and more of them, and Rychel doesn't pass a lot, commits to the body to much, and is a grinder forward. Erne is a power forward who can use his body to his advantage.
