I would prefer Meier over Rantanen for sure if for no other reason he is a LW.

I believe Rant can play either side comfortably, which is why he has always seemed more appealing.  Unless I'm mixing him up with someone else, but I'm pretty sure he was the one that was mentioned to be good on both sides.

We were talking about what is costs to move up a few days ago. There have been a few articles done that attempt to create a valuation chart. Based on one, #7 + #61 should get you to #3. On another, #7 + #29 would be pretty close.

 

I didn't realize that the Yotes were 18+ Million under the floor. Send them Pronger posthaste.

The #7 + 29 might do it, but I doubt it.

So before this thread got really funny with the Vinny to Arizona business...

well done lads.

 

I was kind of hoping for Matthew Barzal at 7  though everyone and their brother has NJ taking him at 6 ...nearly everyone of our canadian friends who has seen him has been impressed with his skill and compete level, so maybe @J0e Th0rnton and @pilldoc you can direct the watches Rejean's way. ?

 

Also, I have read more than one scouting report about Zac Werenski's potential and was wondering if he's a too much or a reach at 7 ?  Provorov is supposed to be ready in a year, but so are a lot of guys ahead of him in the system, maybe Zac can hone his game in the A and turn into MacDoughnah +  ?  

 

Really I'd be fine with the Russian kid there isn't a thing not to like about him.  but I hope that the Flyers take the bpa and imo I'm not willing to wait the 4 years to see it's Lawson Crouse.

Voted Crouse. I won't try to generalize, but I think there are numerous people who are only looking at the offensive numbers and pre-determining that Crouse is a bust. As one of the youngest players in this draft, Crouse is just beginning to scratch the surface of his offensive potential. I think this is a kid that's really going to blossom over the next couple of years and that he's going to be worth the wait/weight when he arrives. He's a big skilled forward with a high IQ and can play in all three zones. His size is going to open things up for Giroux and Voracek and he's got the speed and hockey sense to keep up with them.

 

It's a tough spot to be in, especially if Provorov is there, but I really think someone is going to reach for Provorov. I don't think he gets by number 5.

The only team I see who could potential reach for Provorov would be the NJD at #6.  The top 5 players are a lock IMO.  McDavid/Eichel and the whatever order you want Strome/Marner/Hanifin.  Therefore the only team I see are the Devils and realistically I have seen mocks where the Devils have taken either Crouse or Provorov.

I get what you're saying, at the same time, someone always surprises at the draft every year. I think Provorov is that guy who's going to surprise. I bet he's giving the GMs in Arizona, Toronto and Carolina fits right now as to what they're going to do. Also, it won't surprise me if someone moves up to select him. I really believe the only two set in stone right now are McDavid and Eichel. This is going to be such a good draft.

Crouse scares me. I am confident that he will play in the NHL, but not conficent he will be a top six forward.  I think his time to develop is 4-5 years. At that point Giroux and Voracek won't be Giroux and Voracek that we know.

Please accept my apologies for getting off the topic with the Vinny to Arizona being rather humerous.  Please continue that thread in the Off topic - Vinny to Arizona - humor thread.

 

Now back to the draft.

Crouse=Ryan Sittler

 

 The Flyers won't take Meier at 7, but someone will be getting a great player.    Nik Ehlers was taken #9 by Winnipeg last year and a lot of teams wish the would have taken him earlier.  He won the Q playoff scoring race and only played 2 rounds.

Crouse won't be playing with G or Jake... he is nowhere near ready for the NHL yet. He is 2 years away at least... more like 3 years...

Toronto's current #1 center is Bozak, followed by Kadri.

 

I think Nylander, who is more than ready judging by the time he spent in the AHL this year, could and probably should be the #1 center on the Leafs. Even at his young age, he is the most skilled option at center, and has world class speed to boot. I still think the Leafs will go with another center this time around, but when you factor in Nylander, the cupboard is not bear by any means. Still, you need two very skilled centers in this league, and the Leafs have been with a nice 1-2 punch for decades. I can't see Marner getting by the Leafs if the Yotes don't snag him first. Toronto will pick Marner or Strome, whoever is left over out of those two.

  Thanks bro...a LOT easier to read now!  Strome falling to the Flyers seems a tad unrealistic, but stranger things have happened. This final McKeens list is not going according to hoyle....Roy a lot higher than most have him....Brandon Carlo all the way down at #54....WOW....Provorov now in the top 5....his stock seems to be soaring right at the perfect time. The Russian goalie Samsonov @17 seemed like a stretch, but that is where the Jets select....so it makes a bit more sense, tons of prospects on offense and defense, but no real clear cut #1 goalie....so it makes sense I guess.

I would be surprised if Provorov makes it to the Flyers at 7. I think he goes somewhere in the 4-6 range.

This won't be PC, but my real concern with Provolov is his being Russian.

They seem to relish fulfilling the stereotype that they play like they don't give a ****. All things being equal, you take him if he is there, but that's my concern.

Rux, I hear your concerns and for any other player, I would totally agree.   However, someone on here brought up the point that he voluntarily came over to N. America 3-4 years ago just so he could learn and get ready for the NHL.  If he had been in Russia this entire time, I would totally agree with your concerns.  I don't think this sounds like a kid who is willing to jump ship and go back to motherland Russia.  However, I get the fears that everyone may have.

From everything I have read and heard this is not a concern. If anything it appears this kid is the exact opposite of the prototypical Russian.

Provorov came over as a 14 year old to learn how to play the North American game so he could play in the NHL. He speaks fluent english. He plays well in all areas of the ice. If we take him, I don't think we'll end up regretting it. He may not even be there when we pick. There are more than a few scouts who think he's the best Dman in the draft. 

 

We're just going to have to wait and see who goes before us. When #7 rolls around, Hextall is still going to have a tough decision between 4 or 5 players...unless one of those 3-5 guys falls to 7.

*IF* Strome actually would fall he would be the pick.  Although I dont see him falling honestly...   If Prov is there he is the guy.   After that it becomes a really tough decision and as I said I am not sold on Crouse.   Crouse is going to be a heck of a player but he is a few years away from being in the NHL.  IF Prov goes early that only means a highly projected pick slipped so we are still getting a good player.

      I think Provorov is the pick if he's there. I get the argument against drafting defense again, but I really believe in BPA in the NHL draft, since you have so many lower levels available to stash and develop players. If Provorov has the potential to be the best defenseman out of Morin, Sanheim, Ghost, et al, why WOULDN'T you draft him? You can always deal from a position of strength to help fill needs.

      @J0e Th0rnton   Trust me I have argued this in my head the past few weeks.  The duo of Sanheim / Provorov would be a dynamic 1st Line Defense for years to come.  I believe you still win SC with defense.  Provorov has stud d-man written all over him.  Someone is the Flyers defense prospect pool, will  be a bust.  Ghost is not and will not be a shutdown d-man.  Morin looks good.  IMO, you win in this league with defense.         As much as I love the Flyers Broad Street heritage, the Flyers as a t

      If you're drafting for need, I say Crouse or Rantanen. If you're going for "best player available", then it's Provorov. My gut tells me they'll pick Provorov. Provorov by most accounts is almost NHL ready, and could crack their NHL lineup in 3 years or less.

      @ruxpin   Rux, I hear your concerns and for any other player, I would totally agree.   However, someone on here brought up the point that he voluntarily came over to N. America 3-4 years ago just so he could learn and get ready for the NHL.  If he had been in Russia this entire time, I would totally agree with your concerns.  I don't think this sounds like a kid who is willing to jump ship and go back to motherland Russia.  However, I get the fears that everyone may have.
