This. 1000 times this.

I really would like to see an analysis by someone other than "knowledgeable HFBoards poster #4387" that calls this draft class "deep". I always ask for it, but never seem to get it.

Too many goalies is never a bad thing.

With 3 1sts they should go BFA, BDA, BGA, in that order. Unless Seth Jones is available and MacKinnon isn't.
Drafting a goalie with a first round pick is usually a waste. Just too much uncertainly and variability with regards to how goalies develop.

Yep. Look how long Fleury took to develop. Carey Price was almost tossed from the Habs when Halak took the reigns.

I think Fleury is still developing. Or he just sucks.

We have some great veteran trade assets so if we got some 1st's, we could totally trade up and get 2 of the top 5.... Imagine Baertschi-Barkov-Mckinnon to match Hall-RNH-Eberle. It would almost instantly renew the BOA

I'd personally like Mackinnon if we had the chance, but how is that Swedish guy Lindholm doing? Also first post ftw.

I think to renew the BOA the Oilers need to win some more games, not us.

Most dramatic thread ever. I'll take MacKinnon. He's been talked about since he was 15 for a reason

If we had a top 2 pick, I'd be happy with MacKinnon or Jones, preferably MacKinnon unless something changes drastically.

I believe you are referring to Elias Lindholm, and I believe if we aren't the #1 pick but rather a top 5 we should take him.

"He's a complete package," Stubb told NHL.com. "He could very well be the next Peter Forsberg. He's an excellent skater and great competitor who gives it 110 percent on every shift. He can skate, score and pass and is physically strong even though he is a finesse-type of player."

Yeah that's him. I heard he was giving Barkov a run for his money to be the top European skater. I'd just like us to get a center honestly. It looks like there is a quite a few in the draft that have pretty high ceilings.

TSN has him ranked @5 in their midseason rankings.

The guys I really would like to see end up a Flame are:

Barkov
Monahan
Lindholm
Pulock

Of course I would be ecstatic with Mackinnon or Jones though.

So far a top 5 pick is looking likely. I really want Barkov or Monahan the most. Drouin or Jones would be great to. MacKinnon is gonna be great, but is he a franchise guy? I don't know enough about Lindholm but everyone talks very highly of him.

I think he's able to step in and play in the NHL as early as next season. His game (play style) is familiar to me but for the life of me I can't think of a comparison.

I probably wouldn't put him top ten, but hopefully the Flames are in a position to pick him up with one of the *other* first round picks acquired via trade this season.

Seth Jones for sure! Strong draft coming up, we can get at least another first rounder (+) for Iggy if we trade him to a contender (he deserves a cup)

Pulock had 5 assists tonight in a 5-2 win. If we had two 1st rounds and somehow got him with our 2nd I would be ecstatic.

However there are a lot of good D that might fall to us, were we to have a 2nd 1st round pick. Pulock, Morrisey, Nurse, Hagg, Zadorov, we'd be lucky to get any one of those guys.

Pulock can be had with a mid first.

The kind of pick we could get by trading a roster player or two.

We haven't had a true #1 center in years and the best way (only way) to get one is to draft one.

Barkov or MacKinnon.
