Colin Wilson - Steven Stamkos - Tyler Ennis
Eric Tangradi - Zach Boychuk - Brett Connolly
Alex Pietrangelo - John Carlson
Filatov vs. Wilson-Filatov, way better offensive upside, and Wilson isn't even in his natural position. Points subtracted from Wilson b/c he's a center. #6 on HF Top 5 vs. #17, advantage Filatov.
Stammer vs. Tavares-I can't argue, Stamkos.
Giroux vs. Ennis-Giroux is a way more established player, has a way higher upside and has better size. Advantage Giroux.
Tarasenko vs. Tangradi-Tarasenko is going to be a top 5 pick this draft, he's a tremendous offensive talent. Tangradi is decent offensively and defensively, but lacks the firepower Tarasenko has.
Boychuk vs. Skinner-This is a tough one. Skinner is better offensively, but Boychuk has a better two-way game. Depends what you're looking for, I'll call this one a draw.
Connolly vs. Simmonds-again, this is a tough one. Connolly has been injured almost all year and is playing out of his position (listed as RW, he is a LW), has talent but has injury concerns. Simmonds does it all at the NHL level, he scores, checks, plays defense, and is a really solid player. Slightest edge to Wayne Simmonds.
Pietrangelo vs. Subban-PK is way better offensively, but AP has the big body and all-around capabilities, advantage AP.
Carlson vs. Gudbranson-this is a tough one, some scouts think Gudbranson will be just as good as Fowler. Carlson is better offensively and more established at a higher level, advantage Carlson.
Hickey vs. Shattenkirk-Shattenkirk has a much better two-way game, Hickey is good offensively but his numbers aren't all that impressive. Has struggled in the AHL, while Shattenkirk is leading one of the best college teams in the nation. Advantage Shattenkirk
Varlamov vs. Bernier-I've got the best goalie in this draft. Varly is a tremendous prospect, #2 on the HF list. More established at the NHL level. Advantage Varly.
By my count, that's 6-3-1 in my favor. I have a superior offense and goaltending, while he has superior defense. My goaltending will make up for my shortcomings on defense.
