If the board broke this way, I'd want them to pick Monahan and either Horvat or Hartman.
why is it so hard for some to believe Lazar could be picked over Horvat? you could make a case that they are almost a clone of each other stats wise...both had 61 points this season, both had more goals than assists as well (with Lazar actually leading the Oil Kings in goals) and both are sound defensively. even in the playoffs, hockeyDB says they both have played 7 playoff games and both have 4 goals and 0 assists! their even similar in size, but with Horvat heavier. i don't think it should surprise anyone if one get's picked over the other.
