Hard to give a draft a grade before at least a half season.

Fucale looks like a very safe pick but a lot of upside. Stunned that we got him at 36. I was hoping we would wait till 34 to get McCarron, so the Fucale pick offsets the risk of McCarron not being a top 6 or high end 3rd liner. De La Rose is very safe also, a lock to at least be a 3rd liner, great intensity and work ethic.

Crisp is a bit of a wild card. Really like Angrighetto, will play NHL, in Montreal or trade bait. Lehkonen and Reway are smaller but high skill and fearless, could be Gallagher type steals. Gregoire is safe, ideally a good 3rd liner(Talbot).

I give the draft a B.

The development of McCarron and De la Rose into core type players will make it an A+. De la rose if his offensive game improves could be a 2 way top 6 guy that plays PP and PK.
