I hope Simon Holmstrom turns out to be something good, but i'm good with this pick and i'll believe in this kid because he was apparently the consensus pick between isles scouts. The biggest reach for me was Seider, like, even he was surprised he got picked so early. Kaliyev is gonna take this personally and use it as motivation, the kids gonna be a hell of a player and whoever picks him should thank the hockey gods a team that could've used a skill goal scorer (*cough* *cough* isles) didnt take him. Lavoie im not high on, so i didnt mind seeing him drop to the 2nd round, although he'll go 32nd or 33rd. I wanted Tomasino, so Nashville got a great player in him. Also, LA got extremely lucky because i thought Turcotte was gona at 3. The Knights are also gonna love their pick. But i think the team that got the best haul (besides the Devils and Rangers) is the Avs. Byram is a future No. 1 and im high on Newhook, that team is set for the future. In 2-3 years imagine a starting lineup of Landeskog-MacKinnon-Rantanen Byram-Makar. All that team needs now is a future franchise goalie and even though they didn't get Knight, this is still a deep goalie draft.
