Even outside of the "big" names, there's some really nice goal scoring prospects--Shinkaruk, Erne, Duclair.

But with Nurse and Jones likely to go top ten, and 5-7 high end forward prospects, landing 8-11 would likely still get us a very good player, if we didn't blow the pick.
I'm seeing Nicushcin, Zadorov, Zykov, and Barkov. Poile said the team is done with Russians after the Radulov debacle. Now he did go back on that last year when he brought him back but I doubt Polie takes that chance with a top 10 or 5 pick.
