I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm of the mind the Wings should take the beat available offensive player wherever we fall in the first. If we're picking at 20 and there's a Nichushkin, Gauthier, de La Rose, or Zykov there I say take them.
Our defensive prospect corps is very deep with Sproul, Oullette, Backman, Marchenko, Jensen, and Lashoff all showing well. We should also take into account that Dekeyser could sign here soon, making that pool even stronger.
I'm of the mind this is a good year to add some real scoring ability. Maybe in the first we take some of the safer options like Hartman or Fasching. I want to see us at least try to add some potentially elite players though. Take a gamble on a Shlepyshev, Buchnevich, or Mamin.
I also really like the grit in this class. Guys like Mike McCarron and Kerby Rychel would be fantastic picks to lock down the 3rd line in the future.
