The infamous top 3: sabres dahlin, habs svechnikov, canes zadina the top 3, I think habs could trade up to secure Svechnikov (they have a billion 2nd rounders this draft) and Canes might want to ice Zadina and Necas together.
#4 sens, #5 yotes, #6 wings, #7 canucks, #8 blackhawks, #9 rangers
In no order these guys should get taken in the top 9: wahlstrom, hughes, dobson, boqvist, tkachuk, bouchard.
Also why the Canucks shouldn't trade out of the top 9, and/or they should try to acquire the Hawks or NYR 1st somehow while keeping the #7.
Leaving the Oilers, NYI, NYI, Stars, Flyers, Panthers, Avs, Jersey with.
Farabee, Lunderstrom, Kotkaniemi, Smith, Veleno, Wilde, Hayton, Kupari, Kravtsov etc
Notable teams who have extra picks in the top 2 rounds:
Sens have 4, 22
NYI have 11, 12 and 41, 43

and 39, 48

A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."
