Not bad.
Lysell and Tuomaala looked good this past week.
Don't know what to make of Chayka.

Tuomala in the 2nd would be a great pick up for the devils. Not sure if he falls that far though.

I'm high on Chayka, have him in my top 15 right now. Moves really well for a guy his size, plays physical, good defender. I like his shot too. If NJ misses out on the top end defenceman with their first pick I think they should target him.

I love his game, if he is still available past 25 I would be doing everything possible to move up.

Sounds perfect.
That is just the skillset we need for d-man...skates well, gets the puck on net.
None of our defensive d-man prospects do those well (yet).

yeah exactly, he has the size but feels a lot more refined than Bahl, Mukhamadullin, etc. I think he could be like Chychrun

Clarke is awesome, don't get me wrong. But Power is a big, strong physical d man- hopefully Bahl becomes that guy for us, but it never hurts to have two mobile guys that big on the back end. Plus I feel like he has the highest floor in the draft

If you had your actual 2nd you would probably be able to get him there. He’ll probably go between 30-40, the reports I’ve heard makes me think he’s a similar prospect to Gunler. Skill to the moon but has consistency/work rate issues.
