To me the draft is devoid of any franchise players other than Eckblad. I think Reinhart turns out to be an upper tier first liner, and then there is a big glut of top six forwards from Nylander all the way down Ryan Macinnis.
So basically going from 1-3 is going to be Reinhart, Ekblad, Nylander and my pick of riser Leon Draisaitl.
But my original response don't forget was "The flames are as likely to win the first overall pick as they are to win it and trade down a slot or two".
Either way that is how little chance I see us getting the #1 overall.
So with our top 10 pick I'd like to get Virtanen
