Offensive guys can take regular shifts on PKs but not all offensive guys can go from go to player to playing in a limited role and be effective. I don't see any issues with them being considered locks since those two should in theory slot in perfectly in the role.
I hate to say it but if it were up to me Hudon wouldn't be a lock yet. I'd add 4 top '13 draft guy Shinkaruk, MacKinnon, Drouin, Monahan. With the last pick I'll have to see who fits in best as a 3rd liner type and someone all round or specialist as 13th forward
Huberdeau - RNH - Scheifele
Drouin - Strome - MacKinnon
Shinkaruk - Jenner - [?]
Wilson - Danault - Monahan
Hudon I can certainly see fit in as a #13 or 3rd liner.
-Hudon always performs well in international competitions,lock
-Mackinon probably, Drouin maybe, the rest... don't think so it's kinda rare x 1000 that they choose youngers players like Monahan and Shinkaruk, Mackinon is Mackinon and Drouin is a magician.
PS: Sweet new edition title
