-They pick the very best forward in this draft.
3-Tampa bay Lighting select Jonathan Drouin.
Tampa goes with the offensive dynamo and hope he can replace the Art Ross winner.
4-Nashville Predators select Sasha Barkov
Barkov and Forsberg will be the most talent Trotz worked with since joining the organization.
5-Carolina Hurricanes select Valery Nichuskin
They lend their hand on the second best offensively dynamic forward in the draft, great help.
6-Calgary Flames select Elias Lindholm
Calgary needs help upfront more than anything and Linholm is BPA.
7-Edmonton Oilers select Nikita Zadorov
The Oilers select Zadorov and it fills a need.
8-Bufallo Sabres select Ryan Pulock
They pass on Monahan to land the most dynamic Dman in this draft.
9-New Jersey Devils select Sean Monahan
They get a type of player they like and he’s a real talent.
10-Dallas Stars select Darnell Nurse
Nill praises the hockey gods that such a talent falls on his lap.
11-Philadelphia Flyers select Rasmus Ristolainen
They need help at defense, they draft BPA
12-Phoenix Coyotes select Hunter Shinkaruk
The Coyotes land one of the most dynamic players in this draft, BPA and a need.
13-Winnipeg Jets select Curtis Lazar
They pick the kind of player that will help them win down the road, big tough two-way player.
14-Colombus Blue Jackets select Valentin Zykov
Kekalainen likes big skilled forward and he gets one with the best skill set in the draft.
15-New York Islanders select Mirco Mueller
NYI adds to their already big and skilled pool of Dman with Mueller.
16-Buffalo Sabres select Adam Erne
They add to their skilled offensive squad with this gritty and talented forward.
17-Detroit Red wings select Robert Hagg
The Red wings might be up for a mini-rebuild, and they add a Dman who could turn out to be one of the best in this draft.
18-Ottawa Senators select Alex Wennberg
They keep taking all the Swedes!!!! They go BPA and Wennberg falls on their lap, can’t miss.
19-Colombus Blue Jackets select Josh Morrissey
Good offensive instinct will fit well into their prospect pool, he’s also BPA at this point.
20-San Jose Sharks select Andre Burakowsky
They draft an offensively dynamic swede that will help them in a few years.
21-Toronto Maple Leafs select Nicolas Petan
Really skilled and talented, Nic will do good to their pool that is lacking in talent in offense.
22-Washinton Capitals select Frederik Gauthier
They select another big and skilled forward that could help them soon enough.
23-Colombus Blue Jackets select Max Domi
They select BPA here and they add to a need also.
24-Vancouver Canucks select Anthony Mantha
They need help everywhere and at this point, Mantha is BPA.
25-Calgary Flames select Ian McCoshen
They select their first dman. Fits a need and he's pretty much BPA.
26-Boston Bruins select Shea Theodore
They need game-breaking talent on the back end.
27-Montreal Canadiens select Ryan Hartman
He seems like a Timmins type of player and he fits a need.
28-Anaheim Ducks select Bo Horvat
They get one of the best two-way forward in this draft all that at 28!
29-Pittsburgh Penguins select J.T. Compher
They draft BPA and for need.
30-Chicago Blackhawks select Chris Bigras
They lack quality defenders at the Junior level and they get the best one available.

I will post the second and third round tomorrow, hopefully. I'm tired of writing everything back. (Should've wrote my choice on the damn computer )
Nice post. Well thought out. Looking forward to the next 2 rounds!

Habs are going to get 3 very good young players with their first 3 picks.
