I have a gut feeling about this Rychel kid. I think he has Brandon Saad written all over him. That said, he might still be available in the second round.
The comparison can be made, both are late birthdays, both players come from the same division in the OHL, both with inconsistent draft years, 2 fairly big guys...but Saad is a much better skater than Rychel and also far better defensively.

Apparently, Bergevin wanted a 3rd rounder or better during the season for Weber. Wasn't going to settle for a 5th rounder. Renaud Lavoie reported it right after the deadline.

The best way to do this trade could be with a conditional pick based on Weber's performance, the better he does, the better pick.
