P.S. If Barkov, Monahan, or Lindholm are on still on the board, I wouldn't trade the pick though.
Nurse is just as skilled(maybe even more so), bigger, a better skater and much more physical.

Passing on the guy with higher upside because he'll be making an impact possibly a year or two later would be a big mistake.
