So, finally got to read The Hockey News draft preview, and my opinions on who to take has changed. Still like Risto but one player who I would 100% be fine with taking after reading what they said about him is Josh Morrissey. I know BCF is super high on him, and honestly it's probably that I didn't know enough. The article states he MIGHT not be a superstar defender but a top 4 puckmover who can play on the pp. He can skate well, read the play well and is HIGHLY competitive. His defense they stated is "reasonably well". I just didnt like the comparison to Petr Svoboda.

With the 41st pick, I'd take Ian McCoshen. Said he has the skill to be a "work-horse" defender. 20-30 minute type of player. He won't provide a lot of offense, but will be a guy you can play against other team's top defenders. I guess I am leaning towards being able to draft two defenders and playing them side-by-side. With the 2nd pick if Morin is still around I'd take him also.
