I think Lazar fits the Wild's style perfectly. He's a player that buzzes around the ice with a whole lot of energy, is great on the forecheck, great skater, plays physical, but he also has something the Wild need badly: a shooter.

Although his upside might not be the highest out of all the players, I think he fits the Wild style perfectly.

But if we had the 5th overall pick, that would be a different story because you have a chance of selecting a Barkov there...

Gunnarsson maybe but I see Seeler/Draeger is the mold of guys like Lorenz and Medvec. We won't know for at least 4-5 years. And that's a huge, huge wait. We would have benefited if we took a guy like Thrower. We don't know if Scandella/Spurgeron/Kampfer will take that next step in their development. Scandella has looked mediocre along with Kampfer in the AHL.

Definitely need a goal scoring winger but we also need a little more intermediate depth for defense. Going forward, defense next year in the draft (and I'm thinking CHL defenseman) wouldn't be bad.

I meant an "elite" second/third line defenseman. Like a Nick Schultz type (Tyler Cuma). The guy you can find in free agency fairly easily and isn't a huge impact player on the team.

I have faith the front office will take care of it. They seem to find good character guys with strong work ethic and NHL skill level.

Have not seen enough of Barkov in the FEL but I remember seeing JVR at the same age and always thought JVR was soft. Also did not think JVR was nearly as skilled at the same age.

Is Barkov soft and playing uninspired this year?

Maybe a sheep.

Unless it's a German Shepard. Then it would work nicely.

Idea: Open up an NHL-themed restaurant and name the meals inspired by punny player names. Example: foie gras named "Keith Mallard." It just couldn't fail. See: Planet Hollywood.. Oh wait.

Leaf homerism at its finest.

The sense of entitlement in some comments is dumbfounding.

If there is an answer other than Columbus, they are wrong.

Edmonton is the most correct answer, though.

Saw Morgan Klimchuk the other night. If our pick is no longer top 10, I would love to see the Wild select him, he'll be a great partner for Granlund.

That would be too high for me. I've only seen him a few times this year, but he didn't really stand out until he wanted to. I could see him sneaking into the top 20. But I don't want an enigmatic talent.

Great play/setup behind the net by Charlie Coyle. Larsson's goal comes on Zucker rebound. Mark my words: Lockout ends, Coyle's on #mnwild
Pretty bold statement to make, yet not a bad thing to hear.
