Although I think they're rankings are a bit questionable, as they have the top 5 as:

5. Reinhart
4. Draisaitl
3. Ritchie
2. Ekblad
1. Bennett

Hmm. trading our 6th and Horvat to move up one spot (using Sportsnet's rankings) looks pretty damned stupid now, dunnit?

I can't fathom a scenario where Draisaitl goes ahead of Reinhart. It's even less plausible that Ritchie goes 3rd. I fully expect Reinhart/Ekblad/Bennett to go 1-2-3, just unsure of who goes where.

Probably not but if he really wants out of here he'll open up the possibility to more than 6 teams.

The other possibility is moving assets we get from RK or other pieces for Griffin.

Linden was on TEAM radio this morning and suggested that there is a 1st tier of four prospects of the 3 centres (Two Sams' and the DD) and Ekblad. That's why they want to move up, to draft one of the four. He was asked about The Son Of Paul and he said it is very unlikely he would be available at 6th. :mex:

I agree with Linden. Dal Colle does not belong in that group. He belongs with the next tier which is Nylander, Ritchie, Virtanen, Perlini, Fleury, Ehlers and Kapanen. I'm still taking Virtanen, Nylander and Ritchie ahead of Dal Colle if Dal Colle is there at 6.

I'm assuming DD is Leon Draisaitl and not Michael Dal Colle. No way I pick Dal Colle ahead of Draisatl

Very little attention paid to Kasperi Kapanen...the top ranked Euro in this draft...has a little more size to his game than Nylander and appears to be that offensive weapon we lack up front without the defensive issues...
Plays right wing but oozes talent. Wouldn't be surprised to see his name called at #6 then go on to be the best of the bunch...

More on Kapanen via the score:

Overview

The top-rated European skater in the draft pool, Kapanen is an offensively gifted player who cut his teeth in the pro game playing alongside his father and former NHLer Sami Kapanen with SM-Liiga's KalPa.

Unable to suit up for the gold-medal winning Finnish squad at the 2014 IIHF World Junior Championship because of a shoulder injury, Kapanen posted respectable numbers for KalPa despite toiling for a last-place club at a young age.

Kapanen possesses elite, game-breaking abilities; a strong skater, he excels at both ends of the ice with a dangerous combination of puck handling, passing and shooting skills.

Projected as a top-10 pick, Kapanen would be a good fit for offensively-starved teams such as the Nashville Predators, Winnipeg Jets and Vancouver Canucks. Don't be surprised, however, to see him land in Carolina, where his father played for six years.

Pro Comparison

Remember all the flack I took for trying to promote the Canucks to draft Ekblad?

RoyalDude wrote:Skyo, you're the only shmoe who thinks..drafting Ekblad instead of Sam R is better for us considering our 2 best forwards are turning 34 in september and with no elite young skilled forward talent in the system to replace them. Give your feathers a shake my good man.

RoyalDude wrote:SKYO, Ekblad is not elite potential defenseman. He's like a touch better Brent Seabrook or something, who has had the luxury of playing for a very good team while paired with Duncan Keith. You don't bypass someone like Reinhart for Ekblad. You get an opportunity to get a player like Reinhart you take it. Ekblad is not in that 'special' defenseman category to take him over Reinhart. Our offense will take a serious hit here in the short term as father time is gonna creep up fast on the Sedins. Once they are gone, this teams offense at forward is pretty fucking awful moving forward.

RoyalDude wrote:Rumsfeld and RD are on the same page, we are in a good position to make a move with Florida for their 1st I overall. Toss them Edler and our 6th, draft Reinhart! Skyo you're not right in the head if you are taking Aaron 'Chris Phillips' Ekblad instead of local kid - CENTRE - Reinhart. That's as bad as Montreal passing on local kid Denis Savard and taking Wickenheiser.


Well well well...

Defensemen don’t normally win the Calder Trophy, but Ekblad sure could.

don’t count out Florida’s Aaron Ekblad. The Panthers’ 18-year-old defenseman, the first overall pick in the 2014 draft, co-leads his team with 17 points (4G, 13A) in 25 games, while logging 21:45 of ice time per contest. Only one rookie, New Jersey’s Damon Severson (4G, 6A), has played more total minutes than Eklbad has this season.

And he's in some elite company for an 18 yr old dman..

Sky, I don't know how you and Doc do it.

How can you pat yourselves on back so hard without breaking an arm. ;)
