I get the Mantha concern, he seems like a potentially bigger version of Ryder when he was first with us. Its the goal scoring potential versus putting up with the softness. Prefer Horvat but doubt he will be there. Disagree with you on De La Rose, Roy in the third is fine, also looking at Moutrey, Santini there.
This is going to be a wild draft. I mentioned Morin and I have seen him going anywhere between 12th and 49th depending on the hockey writer. Opinion is all over after the first 10 guys for sure. No reason not to add the size and physical players we need in the system.
