I remember that draft, around this time we were starting to get excited that we might have found a late-rising kid with all the tools to develop into a #1C that might actually be available when we picked... but wouldn't ya know it, he just kept getting better and better and he shot up draft charts in the last month or so until CLB wound up taking him well ahead of our pick.
Not centers, but I thought that all of Honka, Ehlers, and Nylander would be in our sights as recently as a month ago. A Rangers winning streak coupled by those guys rising makes them out of reach. Ehlers and Nylander may go top 10, Honka will be gone by 15 after seeing what Erik Karlsson has done in this league as a 15th overall.
