But there are definitely a few guys that I like also in the late 1st/early 2nd round too that could be solid picks that turn into a power forward type of player for the top 6 (Rychel, Zykov, Horvat, De La Rose). It seems like this is a good yr to be needing to draft that type of player though with what seems like a plethora to choose from.
I agree completely with the names on your list. I'd also add Jason Dickinson, Justin Bailey, and Jimmy Lodge to the list. Although Lodge might be more of a late 2nd/early 3rd. He's not on a lot of radars right now but he's a guy who could rise in the last few months. He's actually picked up his scoring pace in Saginaw since around the time Trocheck was traded. And scouts love kids with that size, 6'2" and not afraid to drive to the net.
