<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>exo2769</b></div><div>So I'm with you that I really haven't done a ton of research into the draft class this year other than hearing for a full year now from just about everyone that's it's pretty deep. I'm a 100% best available in the top roughly 10 picks. (Whatever the "known" talent drop off is) After that tier drop off I tend to have a little more acceptance of best available in a certain position.

With that said, I wouldn't mind Holtz, Lundell, Rossi, Halloway. I don't think Stuetzle will be available. Can't see the other teams letting him slip that far (OTT Twice likely), but who knows. MTL doesn't certainly doesn't need a smaller scoring winger now that they have Caufield. I'd be ok with Schneider if the Hawks progress closer to the Wild Card. He seems like a little bit of a stretch at the current 8 spot, but agree that he would be a nice fit in the long term. Hawks have a lot of smaller Dmen right now. We'll see how Regula and Vlasic continue to develop.</div></div>

Yeah, I've been checking some of the numbers and reports on these guys. Holtz looks pretty appealing, all he does is score and already has a solid frame. Schneider could be a good pick up too, but unless we're getting a total redo on Byram, I'd rather stay away from defensemen just because there are so many already in the system. Same goes for center, but you could find a guy who can move to the wing I suppose and we still don't know if Strome and Dach will hit their ceilings.

All I know for sure is that I don't really want Askarov. I know he looks amazing, but taking a goalie in the top 10 is super risky and they have more pressing needs. As of right now, he's the one guy I'd be upset about taking.
