If I was running the draft, it would be forward in the 1st, defenseman in the 2nd, 1 goalie every year, no Canadian juniors players after the 3rd, and European and collegian players from the 4th round on. That maximizes the chances of finding stars in every round.
That's not a bad draft plan at all. The only thing I would reconsider is who to pick in the first. I'm a believer in the best player available approach. I get sometimes you need to reach, but usually, it's always best to go with who your best available player is. But after that, yep, that's an ideal plan on how to draft.
