They're definitely playing some serious games with that pick. No MacKinnon or Jones at 1? Is Barkov's stock that high at this point, to go 1?

There's a world of difference between not telling him he's their pick, and telling him he's not their pick. Wouldn't be that surprised if they drafted Jones, but I think they take Mac.

Agh. I should learn how to read. Definitely thought it said they told him he's not their guy.

But yeah, gotta agree, it's all head games. I still say they came out with the statement about Jones in order to pressure Florida to trade up.

Suspect they haven't told him because they've already decided to move the pick and are sitting on completing the trade, waiting to see if they get a better offer.

Agreed. Still think Jones is their guy, they're just trying to get Florida to trade up.

Ristolainen profile made it sound like we're high on him, wouldn't shock me if he's an option if we trade out of the top 7

Yeah it think it's nichushkin, lindholm, or ristolainen if we drop based on the profiles. Could be smoke blowing of course.

I'm having a last minute crush on lindholm. I think he may be a very good and safe pick. He's a very talented playmaker with quickness, I think that would a real nice compliment to what we have. We lack true passers, guys who set others up with time and space. We'd be a better team, though his size may make us wait a little for him to realize his potential.

trade 5th to Bufflatucky for 8th and Sekera, then draft Ristolainen. I could get behind that.

Same here. Also like that he is reported to be a very hard worker, never gives up on a play, etc.

Samesies... Canes seem high on him too, compared him to MacKinnon. Stock has really risen recently, definitely one of the least volatile rankers. A few have him above Barkov, McKeens does and they are one of my favorites. I'd take him at 5 if Nich, Lindholm, and Monahan were on the board. Nich being a close 2nd.

Although i expect a crazy shakeup somewhere resulting in one of Barkov or Drouin falling to 5. Whether that is TB taking Nich at 3, Nashville or even Florida taking Monahan or Lindholm at 4/2, something weird will happen.

Lindholm has always been my 2nd choice behind Barkov. But truthfully I'd be happy with Lindholm or Monahan, but I'm hoping Lindholm if Barkov isn't there. I wouldn't mind Nichushkin either, I'm just not as high on him as some people.

To Philly:
5th + McBain

To Car:
11th + 41+ Coburn

Then we can get Zadorov or Rist, then in the 2nd stock up Heatherington / De La Rose / Theodore.

Then in a couple of years we will be looking at:

Faulk / Zadorov
Coburn / Heatherington
Harrison / Murphy
Theodore

Hmmm.

I'd be down with that.

But if we do that, I don't think we go with a defenseman at #11. Think we go with someone like Domi, Shinkaruk or Horvat.

Prob so. Domi most likely, they seemed to like him.

Domi/Horvat, Coburn, dumping McBain and adding a second 2nd round pick would be amazing, but I don't think Philly is that desperate to move up.

Oh no doubt! It's a bloodlines thing.

But I'd consider grabbing Mantha if we get into the 11 range. We need wingers, the guy is huge and he is the best pure goal scorer in the whole draft. A hell of a combination.

Coburn brings a lot of what we need, although It'd be nice to add another physical defenseman if possible. Something around McBain and the 5th for Coburn and the 11th would be a good deal. If we do end up trading down to that spot, I'd be happy with Shinkaruk, Ristolainen, Zadorov, or Morin. Though on the smaller side, Shinkaruk would be a good playmaker, something we need. And any of those defenseman will bring size, toughness, and physicality.

Not a fan of Mantha especially after reading his prospect thread. Maybe if we were picking in the bottom 3rd of the draft. But not anywhere near where we'll be picking.

Don't care who we pick, as long as JR doesn't go completely off the board.

Though I will be a little more disappointed if he takes Monahan/a defenseman not named Jones if Nich/Lindholm/etc are available.

Monahan is fine, would have gone top-3 the past 3 years easily and has elite playmaking 2C upside. I just think Lindholm and Nichushkin both have more 1st line, 70-80 point upside.
