I never seen him play but he is intriguing from all the stuff I have read.

I personally hope we wouldn't but who knows Lou and Conte know best.
I'd rather have Landeskog over Mika.

True, but still the point stands, not every Finnish goalie is that great. I want Rask badly. Unfortunately, not gonna happen. Not in this universe.

Do you think we just lose out on Huberdeau?

Definitely. He'll go 2, or 3. Maybe even one.

Hope so. Guarantees us one of Larsson, RNH, or Couturier, with the Murphy+ possibility still looming.

If Edmonton picks Larsson I think we should trade up for RNH because I'm pretty sure Florida would want him but Colorado might want Huberdeau or Landeskog so they might want to pick up other assets.


But thats a really small chance that the Oilers don't pick RNH.

If RNH is there at 2, we have no chance of trading up unless you throw in next year's 1st and some other stuff.

No it wouldn't require that much I doubt Colorado wants him. He would be redundant there.

If Edmonton takes Larsson, I say just sit back and wait for Couturier at #4. I think it's comical that he's fallen so far in various rankings.

Just to humor me do you like Huberdeau at 4? Because if you do then he will probably be just as redundant as a LW for us as well. But he's the BPA? Well the thing is that other teams draft on that philosophy as well. Also rumors of Stastny being moved wouldn't be so far fetched then.

That's why I think RNH goes first and Larsson goes at 2. The only thing that could save us is the parity between the top picks and having a team of scouts wanting one guy over Larsson isn't improbable.

So what? Teams will always draft the BAP...especially that early in the draft. If I was an owner and my GM passed on a player of RNH's caliber because we already had two top centers, he'd be fired before the end of the first round.

RNH is probably going first but yes I would like Huberdeau at 4 because he can play center.

Anyway what I'm saying is they rather pick up other assets and get a player they want too if they do trade down.

Not every team has the same draft lists or then you wouldn't have seen Fowler and Gormley drop so far last year.

Also different teams have different variations of the BPA it's not always like Mckenzie's best available.

I think we'll end up with one of either Larsson or Couturier.

If we do, I'd be very happy.

Larsson first, if he isn't possible I'm leaning towards Couturier over Landeskog. Both would be great. Hell even Huberdeau would be nice.

Larsson, RNH, Couturier, Landeskog, Huberdeau, one will be a New Jersey Devil.

I would tend to agree with Huberdeau the dark horse. I like Landeskog, but I'm starting to think that NJ wouldn't pick him that high. Any other draft year, Landeskog would be a #15 and up pick, funny enough a guy that NJ might target if he fell or they would trade up for.
