Been away for a bit. Nice lists bleach clean.

I'd like to add Bowey to the 'do not draft list' as he seems to be elevating his stock. I'm just not sold on his hockey sense.

Don't know enough about Bowey. Will have to do more research.

Essentially, yes, I am trying to construct a "do draft list" vs a "do _not_ draft list" given the picks we are likely to see in our range. Those that fall above our range in the 20 and under group would be clear fallers and the team shouldn't pass them up. By doing this, we can have a clearer picture of how the draft is going on the day itself. We can immediately recognize "mistakes" or "reaches" as the draft progresses. And get a better sense what we have to look forward to as VAN's pick nears.

I want smart, competitive players.

I'm hoping to get a good look at Compher.

I've come around a bit on Rychel, just because I have a gut feeling we take him if he's there.

I think the way you listed those 5 is how I'd draft them. Zykov then Petan the other 3 IMO are pretty close. I think Kilmchuk is the more skilled of he and Rychel.

Not sold on Hagg either, seems like another 'decent' swede who gets love because he's a swede.

I'm like Hagg a lot. Pretty versatile Dman with good upside. Rychel I'm still not a fan of. I wouldn't mind if he's taken, depending on what else is available, but odds are someone better will be there so I hope they don't. Still don't like his hockey sense and inconsistency.

Zykov over Petan is going to be tough, considering Petan is local. I'm leaning towards Zykov, but it's definitely a question. If I was more optimistic about Petan putting on size with his frame, then I think I would lean the other way. As it stands, Zykov is the "safer" selection.
