Mind you they have a few solid RD prospects- Thomson and JBD. They could have the RD equivalent of Chabot in Drysdale. Perfetti is great but they have enough LW/C players/ prospects.
I like Colangelo for Boston. That’s great. How about Jack Finley in round three? 6’5” and 210 lbs. Right handed C/ RW. I’m really hoping they can somehow get Ozzy Wiesblatt.</div></div>
I was thinking about Drysdale over Perfetti, too, so I can see them going either way personally. I decided on Perfetti because Ottawa already has Chabot, Lajoie, Brannstrom, Thomson, Bernard-Docker, and Tychonick as NHL-calibur defense prospects, and I thought that adding Drysdale to the mix may be overkill, whereas Perfetti can play center or wing, and there is still room for a face of the offense in Ottawa, so I thought Perfetti may be the right pick for them.
As for Jack Finley, I am actually a pretty big fan of his as well, and would love to see him on the same roster as Trent Frederic and John Beecher. I could definitely see Boston taking them, and would really like it if they did, but I decided on Powell because I think the Bruins could use another top defensive prospect to go with Vaakanainen rather than another big center. But, as I said, I would love it if the Bruins ended up with either one!
