1C / 2C - Dylan Larkin
2C / 3C - Joe Veleno, Michael Rasmussen, Theodor Niederbach
3C / 4C - Chase Pearson
Larkin is our only top 6 center currently. Maybe one of the three players listed can emerge as a 1C / 2C. Center may be our biggest area of weakness.
1LW / 2LW - Jakub Vrana, Lucas Raymond
2LW / 3LW - Tyler Bertuzzi, Robert Mastrosimone
3LW / 4LW - Adam Erne, Evgeny Svechnikov
1RW / 2RW - Filip Zadina
2RW / 3RW - Robby Fabbri, Jonatan Berggren
3RW / 4RW - Givani Smith, Elmer Soderblom
Our biggest area of strength is on the wings but we could use another top 6 RW depending on how Berggren pans out.
1LD / 2LD -
2LD / 3LD - Dennis Cholowski, William Wallinder, Albert Johansson, Eemil Viro, Jared McIsaac, Donovan Sebrango
1RD / 2RD - Moritz Seider
2RD / 3RD - Filip Hronek, Gustav Lindstrom, Antti Tuomisto, Seth Barton
We currently have the most depth at LD but no standout top pair. Maybe one of the 6 players listed can emerge as a 1LD but I wouldn't count on it. Our best player is at RD but pretty thin after Seider.
I don't think we have a single goalie that projects to be a #1. Maybe Petruzzelli but there's no guarantee he even signs.
Based on this I think we should target C / LD / G in the upcoming draft. McTavish / Hughes / Wallstadt with #6 Raty / Lambos / Cossa with #23 Pinelli / Chayka / Lennox with #38 / #48 / #52. Target another RW and RD in rounds 3 / 4.
