    Grant Mismash F
    Ostap Safin F
    Joni Ikonen F
    Jake Oettinger G
    Ivan Lodnia F

    Next Tier for beyond if available

    Dylan Sandberg D
    Alexi Lipanov F
    Antoine Morand F
    Jonah Gadjovich F
    Kristian Veselainen F
    Henri Jokiharju D
    Ian Mitchell D

    I have never seen them play, so comments welcome.
    Is Yamamoto related to Admiral Yamamoto?

    Bowers finished 12th in USHL scoring as a 17 year old. He could develop into a scorer

    The best USHLers never see their 18 and 19 year old seasons, they've left for college. Bowers won't see his either, he'll be gone to BU.

    12th in scoring (and well under a PPG) isn't that impressive to be honest.

    Its not bad.

    He's got a good two way game. If people thought he was going to be a first liner, he wouldn't be sitting in the rankings in the 20s and 30s in this draft class.

    I'd rather go for more offensive upside at that pick.... Thomas, Norris, Chytil, for me.

    Jeff Marek's mock draft has us taking Finnish defenceman Urho Vaakanainen at 25.

    I agree...

    Furthermore, that's why I don't agree with protecting Benn over Beaulieu......dmen take years to develop....not saying Beaulieu would have progressed more, but he represents the NHL of today, and he's a more valuable commodity than guys like Benn.

    Chance yes.

    Hes a early to mid 20s guy. So it wouldnt be a huge fall.

    I dont think its likely... but its possible.

    Suzuki i say no chance.

    Urho, the boring D man with no offense to his game has moved up to # 22 and maybe out of the Habs reach. What to do? I think the Habs want this guy.

    Ha yes, I didn't read this until now...so I am not so crazy. Urho and Juulsen the shutdown D pairing of the future.

    While I doubt it'll happen, if Elias Petterson were to drop in the mid-teens, I'd trade at least one of our second round picks to move up.
    Elite goaltending will hide a lot of a bad team's flaws and make them look a lot better than they truly are. That's why Carey Price is the single most important player to his team in the NHL.

    I doubt that happens as well. Would be a nice pickup though.

    8PM EST tomorrow I believe. I think it's during the NHL Award Show or right after.

    I'm ok with taking a D-man after trading Sergachev in the first round.
