Interesting list but don't agree with it for the most part.

Draisaitl arguably the highest potential. Needs to be top 3.

Goldobin should be higher. Too conservative on Josh Ho-Sang too. Huge upside or bust.

DeAngelo should be top 5. You draft him for his massive upside and that's the only reason.

Always a good debate. Nice work Chris

Always good to debate the options and state the opinions - as I stated a couple of times, while the main focus was pure offensive upside, other factors taken into account (for instance, all-around ability equating to more playing time, etc.)

Thanks for chiming in, Brendan.

He does have very high end offensive upside - again, the dose of realism with respect to his size limitations did come into play.

Well, 3 in the Top 50 didn't get drafted...what will become of:

- Sebastian Aho - D
- Vlad Tkachev - F
- Gavin Bayreuther - D
?
