Petan-Domi-Gallagher line would be about ten times harder to play against than a Mantha-Gauthier-Pacioretty line.
I'd be willing to take the chance on Petan with one of our first three picks. If we go balls to the wall with 3 forwards at 25, 34 and 36... if Petan is one of them the others could be two of McCarron, Poirier and Bailey, for example. I wouldn't hate this:

25 - McCarron
34 - Petan
36 - Poirier/Bailey
