Bennett is my #1 pick overall. If he drops below #4 i would be very suprised
Ekblad. I think people are way too into him. He's going to be a great NHL but not elite or a franchise changer. Perfect #2 defenseman. Because i see #2 defenseman as his ceiling plus the time it will take to develop a defenseman he's my #3 pick (i think Bennett and Perlini are 1st line talents at their peak).
Perlini is a future 40-goal scorer in the NHL. Very confident in that. Him and Nylander are the only guys i'd pick over the big 3.
McCann is the best defensive player in this draft as a forward. Smart and talented. Might be an O'Reilly type.
William Nylander is the most dynamic offensive talent in the draft imo.
Ritchie is still up in the air for me. There is a lot to like but then you see a lot you don't like.
Virtanen. I don't see it with him. idk why he's more highly rated than Perlini. Perlini=Patches and Virtanen=Jvr as ceilings if lucky imo.
Kempe. I am high on him. Top-15 pick imo. Carbon copy of Patrik Berglund who i think could be a great player. Maybe a little more offense and less defense but he is pretty solid at both ends.
Fiala, was a 4th round pick a few weeks ago. Shot up the ranks with offensive talent that rivals Nylander. Very hard to check but when you do he's easy to knock off his game but then he goes into hard-working pest mode and starts hitting/fighting. He's not really effective at it but if it gets him away from the puck then you win.
