If the lotto balls stay true, I've got us narrowed down to three prospects...
1. Aleksander Barkov: Center, 6'2, 209 lbs. Finland
2. Darnell Nurse: Defense, 6'4, 190 lbs. Canada
3. Rasmus Ristolainen: Defense, 6'4, 204 lbs. Finland
I think Barkov is overrated. Every video I have watched of him, you see what seems like very very little defense being played in Finland. Anyone can look like a stud when they can skate through the defense at ease. I like Nurse but not in the top 6 picks, I think he projects to peak as a top 4 defenseman, not a top line defenseman like you would want with that high of a pick.
