We don't need more character/grit combo players. We need guys that can impact a game on the scoresheet too. I am all for character, and in this draft, nobody in the 1st round can be said to be lacking in that dept., so I want to add that offensive prowess. A guy like Mantha on Kadri's wing would be a nightmare for the opposition, as would Erne, Nichushkin, etc.
Not a fan of Mantha or Erne to be honest. Could turn out to be good players, but see a lot of bust potential with both those guys. Nichushkin would be dream come true. With the success of our over seas scouting (they only get late picks to work with but have been producing solid NHLers with those picks), I wouldn't mind seeing us take a European with our first round pick. I also would like to see a double-dip at forward like we did last year with defenceman (as long as it aligns with BPA).
