This draft is strong upfront. A lot of good all-around talent and some good power forward prospects available.
I really like Barbashev, Virtanen, Ritchie, Mistele, MacInnis, Clarke, and McCann.
Ritchie, Barbashev, and Virtanen are probably top 10 picks, so hopefully the Isles won't have a shot at them. That said, Mistele is a guy I really like. Best suited for the wing, good skater, physical player, very good shot, great kid with coachable attitude. High character kid, he and McCann both fit the Isles mold early on. McCann is very mature, responsible two-way forward with very good offensive skills himself. I could see both rising throughout the year.
Ryan MacInnis is a project type. Big kid, 6-4, but lanky I think he's probably 180 something at this point. He has the tools and the upside, but he's not quite at the level of some of his OHL peers so he will likely be in range of where the Isles pick.
