In no particular order (cause I frankly don't have the patience to argue with myself over placements):

Nathan MacKinnon (My favorite)
Jonathan Drouin
Seth Jones
Elias Lindholm
Aleksander Barkov
Darnell Nurse
Max Domi
Josh Morrissey
Nikita Zadorov
Sean Monahan
Rasmus Ristolainen
Adam Erne
Bo Horvat
Laurent Dauphin
Valeri Nichushkin
Marko Dano
Alexander Wennberg
Ryan Hartman
Emile Poirier
Andre Burakowsky
Hunter Shinkaruk

Samuel Morin (Intrigued by size)
Valentin Zykov (Intrigued by playing style)
Anthony Mantha (Intrigued by scoring ability)
Ian McCoshen (Intrigued by solid overall game)

HM: Curtis Lazar; Kerby Rychel; Ryan Pulock

Edit: All those from MacKinnon to Shinkaruk are those I viewed personally. The final four are cases of intrigue.

I dont get why people arent into Morin as much if not more than Tinordi? He sure looks to have some raw potential even offensively could be a 2 way dman from some reports i read more speciffically hockeynews. 6'7" and a tough fighter... from quebec.. a defense with tinordi and morin along subban emelin and beaulieu... talk about intimidation factor in 2-3 years

I'd be happy with any of the following players who could realistically be available at 25:

Anthony Mantha
Kerby Rychel
Adam Erne
Curtis Lazar
Valentin Zykov
Frederik Gauthier
Ryan Hartman

Samuel Morin
Ian McCoshen
Ryan Pulock
Josh Morissey

With so many options, it's gonna be hard to disappoint me this year.

Morin would be my 1st pick at 25th, it's hard to see him still on the board still though IMO.

Because the Q doesn't churn out tough players. It's softer than some european junior league. It's more like Morin becomes a bigger Lapierre who starts crap and doesn't fight than a Chara.

Corban Knight dropping a hint that may have Kristo joining him in Calgary, to be announced in Newark NJ, assuming that means a trade at the draft. Feaster has obviously watched ND Fighting Sioux this season and seen the chemistry Knight and Kristo share.

This rumor has grown with a little help from our fanbase wanting Calgary's 6th OV choice. I'll leave it to you guys for awhile and see if Drouin gets invlolved, talk about stirring the pot!

Speaking of this, do we have the quote with context anywhere?

Here's the quote (apparently):

I'm with bcv, I don't see any reason why Feaster would have let a guy he signed 24 hours ago in on his plans for trades...only thing I can think of is if Calgary and Montreal had some prior talks about Kristo and Feaster used that as leverage in discussions with Knight ("I might be able to get your buddy out of Montreal if you sign with us" type of thing)..but that's a stretch. It's a strange thing for Knight to say either way.

Kristo isnt worth more than a very low 1st to a mid 2nd round pick...if he was to be traded...

Maybe in trying to get him to agree to sign on with them they said something he construed as their trying to get Kristo. Im sure they didn't overtly say anything but people slip up some times , but people also misunderstand things as well. I mean, like him just saying that he owes a part of his success to playing with Kristo and a Calgary guy saying you never know what can happen, and teams do talk at the Draft, something like that.

What Barkov has done is really amazing. But Colorado would also not go wrong with Nichuskin. He has to be mentioned in a possible top 1. Nichuskin is North American and he's the best prospect of this year's draft.

I wouldn't be totally against Morin, just we already have a Tinordi.

As far as Knight's "quote", I'd love to hear to full context of it.....'Cause the only way he'd mention this would be if Feaster would have told him in the process of getting him that he's in the middle of trying to get Kristo out of Montreal. 'Cause Knight himself wouldn't know anything.....Bergevin would not have told Kristo either. But I'd be surprised that even Feaster would say such a thing.

It makes no sense for Montreal to trade him for anything less than a 1st rounder. I could see MB biting for the #22 overall pick, that's about it. At 28 the Habs have two picks very close by.

The player we salivated over for his toughness until the minute he got signed, Patrick Bordeleau, was churned out by that league...

Nikushkin was a trainwreck at the combine so he may slide a bit when you combine that with the Russian factor.

Absolutely true. At best, Kristo will be kept in our pocket depending who's available at 22. If everybody interesting is gone OR if Timmins think that who he wants will be available later, Kristo stays.

Having said that.....Kristo will show everybody what he's made of real soon. So our 1st pick will REALLY have to be worth something 'cause you haven't heard the last of people....me included.

I personally don't see in what way Nichushkin is better than MacKinnon. IMO, Nichushkin has a tunnel vision and the way he plays is most of time by beating his opponents on the outside with his speed and cutting through the net. That won't work everytime in the NHL. As for MacKinnon, he as much a powerful skater as Nichushkin but he is unpredictable in his style and decision making. Outside of the size difference, even if Nichushkin was to be a NA, I would still say that he's behind MacKinnon.

In response to what we were talking about in the last thread, here's the video I think some were referring to when speaking about MacKinnon making Jones look like a pylon.

Do you guys really think Kristo might fetch us a 1st rounder ? Seems high, no ?
