Denis Smirnov.  Looks interesting.

 

Jbot said drafting for position is difficult.  That doesn't mean it's not a factor in the creation of his list.  Even if it isn't a high priority, strict adherence to BPA in the internal list will lead to failure because the difference between players ranking a minuscule and if you continually draft forwards, you end up with little else (see TM).

 

Remember with prospects, developing D are worth more then developing forwards and goaltenders.  I would much rather overload my system with D because they are great currency.  Look at the recent Seth Jones trade, the Sergachev trade yesterday and the teams lining up to get Vatanen and Brodin and DeHaan etc....  

 

Sadly, TM decided all we needed was RW's . 

 

Struggled vs. better competition, is small and i read one scout call him "chubby". Very skilled and smart player though, wouldnt be a bad 6th or 7th round pick.

According to NHL.com our greatest draft need is for a scoring D.  Really?

I'm a complete homer and given our potential dearth of future goalie options, I wish they could find a way to add Oettinger.  Unfortunately I think that would take a bit of maneuvering to happen.

Saw the article where Bots says he's had conversations about moving up, moving down and so on.
Any chance we can move up enough to nab Maker?

Buffalo should draft Tippett or Casey Mittlestadt. Plenty of opportunities to draft defenseman plus talent on offense can be used to acquire defense

Craig Button had Liljegren mocked to Arizona at 7. Would  you trade up to get him at 6? 

 

Dallas is open to trading the third pick. Would you pay a steep price to get in front of Colorado to get Makar or Heiskenen?

Updated draft tiers
1- Patrick & Hischier - I expect Hischier goes no.
2- Vilardi, Heiskanen, Makar, Middlestadt, & Glass - don't expect any of these 5 to fall to us at 8
3- Tippett, Petterson, Necas & Liljegren - take Liljegren at 8 and be happy?
4- Tolvanen, Suzuki, & Andersson
5- Rasmussen, Vesalainen, Valimaki, Kostin and Brannstrom - anyone in tiers 4 & 5 could go anywhere from top 10 to 22
6- Foote, Yamamoto, Poehling - last 3 with near unanimous support
7- Hague, Radcliffe, Vaakanainen and Thomas - appeared on 75% of the rankings 15 rankings I reviewed
8- Roberson, Oettinger, Norris, Timmins, Jokiharju and Bowers - appeared on 50 to 75% of the rankings.
9- Comtois, Lind, Chytil, & Davidsson - one of these could easily slip to us early in the 2nd rd. 1/3 of the rankings.

If Heiskanen goes at #3, Makar #4 and Liljegren #5 that bumps players. Vegas I think goes for the best center left. That leaves Arizona who will be interesting to see and then us. We could get a really solid forward prospect at #8


Craig Button had Liljegren mocked to Arizona at 7. Would  you trade up to get him at 6?

Not in this draft.

THAT looks pretty acCurate - I`d be tempted to put Heiskanen in the top tier. All signs for him going 3rd.

 

Im in the Minority but I still take Tippett over Liljegren in this scenario. Liljegren seems like a real roll of the dice to me and the Sabres cant afford to miss.

Only if I get that teams 2nd this year and next year and I don't move down more than 4-5 spots.

Tippett has huge bust potential.  The safer picks are Pettersen and Necas and we don't really need either player, but Liljgren has all the skills to be a top line D.  That is a risk worth taking.  If Liger is right and all 3 D are gone by the time we draft (and we don't trade down) then that means one of Glass, Middlestadt or Vilardi has fallen to us.  If that is the case, then Jbot will likely grab that player if we stay put.

 

Only if I get that teams 2nd this year and next year and I don't move down more than 4-5 spots. 

The cost to move from 12th to 8th is approx the 43rd pick.  If we combine picks 37 and 43 we might be able to climb back into the 1st rd at pick 24-26, allowing us to take a pretty solid prospect from tiers 7 and 8.

Actually it's the other way around.  Teams with depth on D have a better chance to upgrade.

Interesting to see if Vegas gets any more top 5 and resulting changes to draft board with all the D they've accumulated..

Trade down a bit with a team chasing offence and pick Valimaki, Foote or Liljegren.
Losing the lottery hurt more than it seemed at the time.

I don`t understand how the best pure goal scorer in the draft has bust potential. Yes, he is a Kessle clone and that will infuriate some but no one is questioning his hockey sense, skating or shot.

 

Tippett will score a lot of goals in the NHL, I have no doubt about that.

Or just stay where we are and take one of the higher tier forwards that dropped thanks to a reach on Liljegren.

I don`t understand how the best pure goal scorer in the draft has bust potential. Yes, he is a Kessle clone and that will infuriate some but no one is questioning his hockey sense, skating or shot.
 
Tippett will score a lot of goals in the NHL, I have no doubt about that.


Cause he can't play defence or pass.

At this point I'm happy as long as we don't take Tippet.

To be fair many have suggested that Jack needs a pure finisher who can keep up. Tippett would be that at the least.

Hopefully we trade for one of LVs excess dmen. If so, and makar is gone, Tippett would be perfect for Jack

Here's an interesting question would you trade #8 for #13 and #15?

No one would offer that. As I wrote above, to move down from 8 to 12 or 13 you can expect an mid round 2nd as compensation (around 42 or 43). If you get a better pick then 42 that's a great deal that Jbot should jump at.

You would probably need to throw in Minnesota's Second as well to complete the deal.
