Yeah good note, so maybe instead of me saying its a real deep draft, lets just say whatever happens... happens. Just like a normal draft would be thought of

Really wish we took Ullmark. That honestly would solve our goaltending issue as of right now with the lack that we currently have.

It seems every year it takes quite a bit of time to get a read on how good the draft will be, even though of course it is hard to tell until another 4-5 years how good the draft actually was.

It does seem though that at least the top 7 picks in this draft are extremely solid. Also interesting that it is one of the few drafts in a while where there no longer seems to be a clear #1 nor even a clear top 2.
There hasn't been a clear #1 in forever which I love!!! Sooo much talent that makes me crave for a 1st this year!!
