Where this draft is really strong at are possible #3#-4 d-men. From Haydon, Thomas, Dougherty, Sandheim, list goes on. You will some great products on D coming from the 2nd round this year.

From what I've seen (small sample size) I wouldn't mind Sanheim at all. He reminds me a little of Beaulieu. He's also a late bloomer so who knows what´s his potential

What about the weaver trade?

They gave up a fifth but got it back (and higher) from the Vanek trade

All in on Kempe... Hopefully he is still there when we select.

Not expecting a 1st liner but I think hed make a great 2nd line winger or elite 3rd line centre. At this point hes the guy I hope Montreal takes.
I'm a fan, too. Every time I've watched the USANTDP, I come away far more impressed with Larkin than Tuch. Just like how dodonpa mentioned, I find myself wanting more from Tuch. Tuch's got a great frame and brings a straightforward mentality with a good level of skill, but I don't find he brings enough intensity and has too many soft shifts. Larkin might not be as big, but I've seen more physicality and a significantly better two-way game. He also plays a power game and played with a tremendous amount of energy in all of my viewings. Good skill level, too. One of my favourite players for the pick along with Kempe and Scherbak.

In all my viewings I was more impressed with Larkin than Tuch. Larkin is the very definition of playing bigger than he is. He is an incredibly complete player for him age but I do see his gone before our pick.

I know it's only one game, but I can sort of understand now why this year is considered a "weak" year for the draft. There doesn't seem to be many prospects to get excited about. The most exciting prospects this year, appear to be from Europe. This became more evident for me after watching yesterday's game. Canada's best players were their "underagers." Then again, I'm just a hockey fan, so what do I know?

I'm not sure if Kempe is as good as DLR, but if he is available when we pick, I'm all over him.

Kempe isn't as good defensively but is faster has better hands and a better shot.

But the thing that makes DLR special is his physical play. He won't be the one who throw the Big hit, but he uses his body to his advantage really well.
That's a little bit of a problem with Kempe.

Kempe likes to hit. He could definitely use his body better to protect the puck but right now his go-to is to use his hands to shake off his defenders. Keep in mind, this kid is what, two days removed from next years draft? That mentality may change when he gets another year of physical development done.

I'm starting to sweat under the collar a bit that his play in the U-18 might catapult him into the middle teens.

Yeah, that's one of the things I like the most about him considering his production in the SEL this year.

What about Fiala? Undersized but his skill is ridiculous.

Late 1st/ early second, 6'4 220 I do believe, the problem though is he's a defence, and we have more than enough defensive prospects.

I've seen some sites that say he is in the 160s, at 6'4 yikes.
