I would be very happy coming out of this draft with Virtanen, even if we reached for him. 1D and 2C aren't the only needs on this team. I've seen this team disappear in physical games far too many times the past couple of years to believe that we couldn't use a Benn/E.Kane/Ladd type player.
On a side note, I keep seeing Virtanen listed as C/LW in some places, but I have only seen him play LW and RW. Could anyone who watches the Hitmen a lot chime in on if he is able to play centre at all? Personally, I see his game better suited to the wing, but if he able to play centre as well, that versatility could be pretty valuable.
