What picks would you rather have?

What draft picks would you rather have in the 2013 draft or any draft.


Picks 1, 15, and 20 overalls or picks 8,9, and 10 overalls.

I can't decide. It's impossible to tell which players would be available at each position(except 1st OA, of course). If you put a gun to my head I'd probably go 8-9-10.

obviouslly every team's draft board is different but if we go by Buttons list or some other list you could go by players off of that..

if you choose 1st 15th 20th, you know you are deff getting an elite PROSPECT in one of Mackinnon, Jones, or Barkov....

If you choose 8th 9th or 10th you may get top level talent in a deeper draft with a good possibility of top 4 and top 6 players and if you draft right and get luckey mayby even an Allstar or two.

1 15 and 20. You have a good chance at picking a superstar at #1 like a Stamkos, Crosby, or Ovechkin. The difference in skill level between the 8th overall and 20th overall will likely be minimal in a good draft. You still have a chance at a great player with the 20th overall as well. Giroux was a mid 1st round pick.

1, 15, 20 for me. I'd rather have the great to elite talent that 1st overall nearly guarantees you than any combination of picks outside the top 5.

For the Leafs I'd chose 1-15-20

Draft Mackinnon, Fucale, and somebody else (maybe Domi) and it fills some positions of ours that are missing high end talent.

1, 15, 20. Someone did a stat line showing that 1st overall was typically the only surefire hit, and 8-10 are just a tad higher chance as opposed to the rest of the draft.

It's 1st, 15th and 20th overall. The 1st overall pick gives you the greatest chance of selecting an elite NHL player, while the 15th and 20th overall picks still give you a good chance of, at least, picking a couple future NHLers.

2010 - 1st overall, Taylor Hall; 15th overall, Derek Forbort; 20th overall, Beau Bennett
2009 - 1st overall, John Tavares; 15th overall, Peter Holland; 20th overall, Jacob Josefson
2008 - 1st overall, Steven Stamkos; 15th overall, Erik Karlsson; 20th overall, Michael Del Zotto

vs.

2010 - 8th overall, Alex Burmistrov; 9th overall, Mikael Granlund; 10th overall, Dylan McIlrath
2009 - 8th overall, Scott Glennie; 9th overall, Jared Cowen; 10th overall, Magnus Paajarvi
2008 - 8th overall, Mikkel Boedker; 9th overall, Joshua Bailey; 10th overall, Cody Hodgson

1, 15, 20. Draft future superstar, trade up with 15 and 20 if you like someone in the 8-10 range.

1, 15, 20.

2013's gonna be a really good year. That number one pick could land you a generational talent in Jones or MacKinnon, and the 15 and 20 aren't gonna be that much worse than 9/10, unless you make a bad pick.

And If I could, trade 15 and 20 for 2.

This post pretty much proves it. However in 2010 I would have rather went 8th, 9th and 10th.

2011- RNH, JT Miller, and Connor Murphy vs Couturier, Hamilton, and Brodin.

I think it depends on the draft, in a deep draft like this I'd prefer 3 top-10 picks, but in a weaker draft I think I'd prefer #1 and 15 + 20. It's really hard to tell unless you know for sure what players will be available(example Baertschi was selected just outside the top-10, but could have been taken instead of Brodin if you wanted)

1st overalls are guys like Crosby, Ovechkin, Tavares, Stamkos, Hall, Nugent-Hopkins etc.

These are talents you're not getting in picks 8-10.

The only guys on that list that aren't or might not end up being the best in their draft are Ovechkin and Hall, and the only guys arguably better are the 2nd picks.

I want 1st overall, I don't care what else is in the package.

1 and whatever else. In most drafts, the 15th is almost a 10th pick. The distance between 8-10th to 20th is no where near the distance of the 1st to the 8th. You have go back like 15 to 20 years to find where the 1st overall was a dud when there was a consensus franchise player-top pick. Even the draft when Daigle was drafted first, you have your pick between him or Pronger.

I agree, not a whole lot of duds at 1 overall these days.

Ok Patrik Stefan was balls and so was Rick DiPietro the following year.

In the 11 drafts since? The worst players you're getting are Marc-Andre Fleury or Erik Johnson. Not bad at all.

Yeah plus the former wasn't a consensus 1 with his concussions and the latter was a crazy Milbury pick, probably the most boneheaded series of moves in the history of hockey...at least since I became a fan.
