I'm high on Barkov, Nichushkin, etc. but the only one of those that has the same potential as Skinner is Nichushkin and the Canes just flat out don't draft Russians, especially with the KHL factor.
I agree it's not ideal. We finally have depth in scoring forwards but only when we are healthy and whoever we draft will be unlikely to replace Skinner immediately. But we have to work on our D and this is one step in that direction. It would also give us the option of picking up a good D prospect at #11 like Pulock, Zadorov, Mueller, or Theodore. Or even double up on offense. Or perhaps if Columbus is really high on someone in our range we could even move back and pick another pick or two.
