I think we have numerous solid two way Gritty prospects in the system. We don't have many larger gifted players (Bjugstad aside). So there are more appealing players for me.
It seems hard to get a good read on Burakowsky. I think I'd rather pick Hartman than Burakowsky. IMO Hartman has 2nd line potential. I'd add Horvat to your list, I'd put him above Mantha and about where Gauthier is projected to go. Mantha has really fallen in my eyes, he's displayed poor work ethic this season and isn't interested much in playing defense. In a draft where there are many other good forwards, he really hasn't done himself any favors with his attitude IMO.

I'd take Nichushkin around #20 or later, I'm not sure if we'll have a pick in that range though.

If we're not going to make the playoffs, I really hope we can get Barkov, Monahan, or Erne. We really need another highly skilled powerforward in our top 6 besides Bjugstad and potentially Shore.
