I too love Kempe/Barbashev/Scherbak and would take them over someone like Bleackley (who i still like, but question his ceiling).
With Virtanen I think he is still legitimate Top 10 - the team selecting will have to realize that to deploy him properly he will need a partner in crime, a playmaking center that is.

Many would consider those 3 over Bleackley, but Bleackley also offers up as close to a sure thing as there is, with, what I think, is underrated upside.

My 20 pesos.

With Bobby Mac's rankings out and the draft tomorrow, any more thoughts?

Who do you think I have:
a) too high?
b) too low?
c) omitted?
d) bang on?
e) way off the mark?

- Remember, in the table spreadsheet of the TOp 210 rankings, there are stats and demographics of all picks along with links for all players to their respective Elite Prospects profile.

This is not a guesstimate of where they get drafted, but longterm potential.

For a projection of where lads might land tomorrow and Saturday check out my complete 3 round mock with commentary on all picks:

Tons of info here on all the actual picks:
