Please not Toronto, Edmonton or Pittsburgh. If not one of those three i would rank my preference
5) Predators. I see this as an aging slow team on decline and Lafreniere would be wasted there.
4)Rangers. Lafreniere would be the final piece of a complete rebuild.
3) Jets Lots of young upcoming talent he would inject youth to a forward group that is in need of depth.
2) Wild. He would be a perfect fit on an aging slow club in need of speed and scoring.
Minnesota's attendance is just fine, especially in comparison to Florida. But we need a Top line center in the worst possible way and that wouldn't be Lafreniere. We by far are the team that could use a 1st Overall pick the most, that being said...it will probably go to Pittsburgh, Edmonton or Toronto. Just because...
I'm in the same boat. We have a lot of really cool, dedicated, long suffering Wild fans on this site...as good a reason as any to hope the Wild catch a break. Plus, the region has long supported hockey without fail. From a Flyer perspective...get the kid in the other conference!
