Off-hand...Erne, Hartman, Dano finish their checks and can contribute in each zone. I'll probably watch some OHL soon to get some perspective on Nurse vs Zadorov and how physical/defensive they are.
I like Nichushkin's skating and frame, but doesn't he have a KHL deal -- I wanna say with 3-4 years left -- that will scare teams away? Isn't that why Slepyshev went undrafted in 2012 because he said something like he wasn't coming over to NA until he was ready, possibly as late as 22 or 23?
Lindholm's skating is certainly ahead of Hodgson's though. He does have some flashiness to him with a great motor. I tend to favor prospects with good skill, skating and compete levels, so obviously I like him, but I wouldn't put him ahead of Barkov, Jones or MacKinnon.
Also, the new CBA will alter the draft lottery to include all non-playoff teams.
