Spoiler!
Would be thrilled with Ehlers or Virtanen

Nikolaj Ehlers:

Vancouver Canucks fans have already dubbed him "The Electric Ehl" due to his electrifying, explosive style of play.



Comparable Players:

Markus Naslund (Skill)
Pavel Bure (Speed)
Peter Forsberg (Seeing the ice)

Mix (Nathan MacKinnon/Jonathan Drouin)

Patrick Kane (Style of play)

MDC would be a great pick because he's already linemates with Cole Cassels

If Cassels even makes the NHL...would be a waste of a pick just to bank on a prospect cause they're teammates.

Less power forwards more skilled players pls

Good thing this isn't the 2015 draft, the difference between 1 and 2 would be bigger. I think this doesn't really make much of a difference for the Sabres

The top 3 in the 2014 seem to be all pretty close, most have Ekblad as the top player, but the Sabres are loaded with top D prospects already in Ristolainen, Zadorov, McCabe and Pysyk. Myers still being really young and had a pretty solid year bouncing back from a down sophmore season. Sabres need forwards more and will likely want one of the two Sams. I think Florida leans towards Ekblad, building out from the back end with Gudbranson and Ekblad, they already have a solid base of young potential in Huberdeau, Bjustad, Pirri, Barkov.

Bob McKenzie's post lottery rankings

From the telecast:
7 out of 12 scouts have Ekblad as the best prospect in this draft
3 out of 12 scouts had Reinhart as the best prospect in the draft
2 out of 12 scouts had Bennett as the best prospect in the draft.

1.) Aaron Ekblad
2.) Sam Reinhart
3.) Sam Bennett
4.) Leon Draisaitl
5.) Michael Dal Colle
6.) Nick Ritchie
7.) Nikolaj Ehlers
8.) Jake Virtanen
9.) Kasperi Kapanen
10.) Haydn Fleury
11.) Brendan Perlini
12.) William Nylander

The way we've traded latley it probably would look more like our #1, #3 and Markstrom for Luongo.

I was thinking earlier, if we had held out, #6 + Lu + player x for #1 + Markstrom may have worked out..

Is there a site that's resourceful for looking at injuries and return expectancy?

I'm wondering if Vokoun is going to be ready to play...
If Fleury's the only goalie available, I'm not going to bother picking Penguins as a final four candidate for my pool.

we might not have ended up with #6 pick if we held out. if Lu stole a game or two, we might've ended up picking #10
