With a later 1st rounder Lazar and Gauthier are center options.
As for our 2 second rounders I would hope we can snag 2 of these
McCoshen D, Bowey D, Zykov RW, Fucale G, Comrie G, Högberg G
Another goalie to consider with a 2nd is Juuse Saros, stats are excellent but is undersized.
Also I would not be shocked if Nichushkin falls into the 2nd round and would be a no brainer for me at that point.
Some names to throw out there for the later rounds
Bobos D, Mironov D, Bailey C, Slepyshev LW, Whistle G, Subban D, Arnesson D, Olofsson D.
Personally, I would be surprised if Nichushkin fell out of the first. Maybe fall out of the top 10, but even if he is Russian he's that good. If he was Canadian I could see him getting consideration for #1 TBH.
