Well, as of right now we're sitting with the 6th pick. Carolina is 2 points back with an extra game played but they have more ROW than us. So if Carolina wins 1 more game than us in their next three, we'll be in the top 5.
I know there's a lot of love for Monahan around here, and I'm a huge fan, but if we're in the top 5 there's literally no way we should be picking him. Even in the top 6 it's kind of eh. At #7 he's a no-brainer but anywhere before that is questionable IMO.
#2-4 Mackinnon, Barkov, Drouin
Would love to get into that top 4 but that would require TBL to go on a hot streak and EDM to go winless pretty much.
I think a lot of people will discount Nichuskin due to Russian factor and him being a wing but I'd think long and hard about taking him over Monahan. Talent-wise, it's not even close.
That being said, potential draft slots we're looking at the 4-10 range for our draft pick. IMO the Oil Draft board should look like..
