add Ullmark
You add Ullmark but don't have him in your top 10?

In all seriousness, it would be nice for a goalie to challenge top 10 and IMO Ullmark is our best goalie prospect

I'm just glad you didn't hit me with Normand Lacombe

But in any event, I think the drafting of Kea was with the intent of doing things the LA Kings way in this copycat league: they take big fast guys and you'll occasionally get a Simmonds or King coming out of nowhere to play a big role.

Adam Creighton would've hurt more -- he was heavier.

I like the Kea pick too. Seems like he has a good chance of becoming a serviceable NHL player in a bottom 6 role. He's got size, he can skate. If there's some offensive upside buried in there that he just didn't show last year, all the better.

Adam was skinny at 6' 5", the mass was similar: I think Lacombe was 212 and Creighton 215, IIRC. Plus Creighton was slow as mud on a particularly shallow incline.

Mass * Velocity

My vote here would've been for Grigorenko with McCabe as the add.
