We can't have Gardiner, Gunnarson and Reilly on our blue line - it's just too soft IMO.


I think we'd be foolish to use our 1st + Franson for a #2 defenseman. Franson may very well be that #2 defenseman - we don't know yet because Carly hasn't been able to play them together.

But yes, completely agree that we should be trying everything possible to move up into the top-7 and draft one of MacKinnon, Barkov, Monahan or Lindholm. Each of those players is supposed to be what you'd call 'franchise' centres, with MacKinnon and Barkov expected to produce next year, and Monahan and Lindholm on the fence for playing in the show or needing 1 more year.
