safe to say Draisaitl is doing it all up front in PA
Well I don't think many are saying he's a dog and not to take him at all... (well I suppose some may say that) but I think the majority just would obviously prefer Ekblad/Reinhart/Bennett if given the choice.
Personally I think it would be hard to pass on Draisaitl if they chose 4th and those other 3 were off the board. I'd personally have to choose between Ritchie and Draisaitl at that point... 2 good options and while I lean towards Ritchie at #4... I certainly could see a very strong argument for taking Draisaitl there. He has a very high upside and if he was a better skater RIGHT NOW we'd probably see him talked about as a #1 pick... probably a Nathan MacKinnon type talent.
