    2019 Draft

    The first two are obvious. It looks like Bowen has cemented himself into the three spot with a great playoff. I haven't heard anything negative about Turcotte for a while so he goes four or five. I have a hunch Dach goes next. That leaves Cozins or Podkolzin for us. I like Cozins

    Now that Broberg had an excellent U18 does he slip into your top ten? If Podkolzin is in the ISS top four I think, and still second in Europe in Central’s list I don’t believe he slips out of the top five picks. Was it Buttons that ranked him low. Not too impressed with his list. I’m still hoping for Byrum and Turcotte.

    I wouldn’t mind Podkolzin either. I like what I’ve read about him. Sounds like he would be hard to play against. I believe Cozens is a RH centre and that’s what swayed me. In a perfect world I’d take Byrum if he was there

    It’s gonna go Hughes, Kakko, Byrum, Turcotte, Dach and then our choice. I’m taking Cozens over Podkolzin

    I would happily take Broberg in the second. Not sure what I would do if I had already taken Byrum already

    I'm a little surprised at Elite Prospects top 31 draft list. They have the list of the major players in the draft rankings right in front of them, and Trevor Zegras is at 21. Phillip Broberg doesn't make the first round. Neither does Matt Robertson.

    Report: Detroit to name Steve Yzerman as GM

    Finally he is back where he belongs. Makes my day. How does this fit in with Holland? Devallano? Draper?

    I believe we have the second round picks of the Sharks and maybe the Islanders via Vegas. Are these picks finalized or do they depend on how those teams do in the playoffs?

    I had made up my mind that I didn’t want Podkolzin until someone posted to a report of on Dr Dangles I believe. Now I don’t know how he isn’t the top pick. Then I had Dach at 7 until a nice post on him a couple of posts up. I can be easily swayed to anyone I guess. I think Byrum is my top choice at 6 now

    Who would you target in the second round if you picked a forward like Turcotte in the first? Who if you picked Byrum? With Turcotte I would go for Korczak in two. With Byrum I’m hoping Leason slides

    2019 Draft

    Byrum and Cozens are my top two picks but I’m preparing myself for the worst case scenario and they are both gone. My next two are Turcotte and Dach. I hope Zegras sneaks up there and someone takes him early. Podkolzin is still going third I think.

    May as well give you a Dach update as he is likely on our short list now. He scored the only goal as the Blades beat the powerhouse Raiders in game three last night. He scored a highlight goal in game two when the Raiders won 3-2. Seems to be elevating his game when it counts.

    At least the Oilers didn't win it. Or the Avs with the Sens pick. Or the Flyers. See there are lots of positives if youlook for them.

    I cant see Byram or Cozens being there for us. For me its between Dach and Turcotte.
