I wouldn't be opposed to picking a goalie like Zach Fucale there. Also nabbing or trading up for Ryan Hartman or Morgan Klimchuck in the late first might be a smart idea, instead of just waiting and hoping they fall to the 2nd round.
Agree re: Monahan. Great hockey sense there. His offensive stats this season have been hurt by playing for a bad team, but he's very talented. I think he's more NHL-ready than anyone not named MacKinnon in this draft class (yes, even Drouin and Jones). Barkov's two-way game is good too though, and he's got size to boot.
