Who do you want at #44?

Simple question. If who you want isn't who you think we'll get, let us know both in a post. If it's "Other," who is it?

Kosmachuk from that list would be your guy -- lots of meat in his game. Sissons too.

I went with Kerdiles. IIRC, he was Team USA's top player at the U18's. Sounds like he has a well-rounded game.

Aberg would be the guy from that list. I want a winger who can pot some pucks. Collberg or Dansk (heavy on the Swedes, eh) or maybe Lukas Sutter to go in another direction.

BPA. After that first round, they really shored up the biggest organizational need, so at this point I don't really care who the 44 goes for as long as it's BPA. If that's a D, then great. If it's a G, then great. If it's skill up front, great. If it's size, great.

I just want them to pick a guy who's gonna have a NHL future.

Now here's an interesting proposition:

Do you go for a home run and pick Slepyshev?

1. Bozon
2. Kerdiles
3. Sissons
4. Kosmachuk
5. Winther

so i voted for Bozon... i dont expect him to be available...

id be very happy with a sissons/kosmachuk

if i had to add an "other", Zharkov would be pretty high on my list.

My 2nd round guys, I had Pearson but the Kings thought otherwise


Guys still available that would be nice

1 guy in my top 21
Sebastian Collberg

After that

D Matt Finn
D Dalton Thrower
W Phil Di Giuesppe
W Nicolas Kerdiles

W Pontus Aberg
D Damon Severson
C Colton Sissons
D Ville Pokka
D Brett Kulak
G Oscar Dansk
D Ludvig Bystrom

C Lukas Sutter
C Mike Winther
D Adam Pelech
W Daniil Zharkov
C/W Jarrod Maidens

G Jon Gillies
D Jayden Rissling

W Martin Frk
D Pat Sieloff
W Brian Hart
W Scott Kosmachuk
C Devin Shore

D Jake McCabe

voted for Di Giuesppe because I can't see Collberg being aroud he would be my guy though other then that I like the bolds

Shore, Hart, Dansk, Gillies, Bystrom, Kulak, Thrower, Rissling, Maidens, Finn, Collberg, and Aberg

If we can nab 2 of those that would be nice.
I would've said Shore but we just got 2 centers so I will say

Finn and Kulak

Hope to pick up Gillies in the third

He was apparently on the first round list for a few teams.

Real good pedigree. Speed kills. 14 picks is a long time to wait to see who is still around.

Any interest in another Russian now that we have Grigorenko? Slepyshev and Prokhorkin have 2nd-3rd round grades. Adding Grigorenko couldn't hurt our cause in trying to convince a KHL guy to come over.

I think Frk has a ton of upside and has already addressed his conditioning weakness. Some risk for sure, but you may as well go boom or bust in the 2nd.
