  • 2019 Draft

    What are your guys' thoughts on upcoming draft? Who are the most interesting prospects? Who might go way higher than expected or way lower than expected? Who might be the hidden gem of the class? Who'd you like to see the Sens take at 19? 32? 44?

    I’m almost ready to answer this, but not quite yet, lol.

      I'm really digging this Mads Søgaard. 6'7 goalie out of Medicine Hat. Cool as fuck name. He came into Medicine Hat as a 17 year old rookie and stole the starting job from NHL draftee Jordan Hollet.

      Also intrigued to see how high Kochetkov goes after his WJHC performance. I could see both going in the second, but third seems more likely.

      I don't expect the Sens to take a goalie high, but I'd like to see them grab this Erik Portillo with a late round pick. Locked down the Swedish top junior league this year, and making the excellent decision to go NCAA next year. He's already too good for SuperElit, but won't get playing time in a Swedish pro league. As long as he can win a starting job in college by 2020/21, the team that drafts him will be happy.

      I do expect the Sens will give the new Euro scouts at least two or three picks. Maybe one of the seconds, but probably mostly late rounders.

      For the 3rd, I'm hoping for Newhook, York or Söderstrom, but expecting Kaliyev, Lavoie, Poulin, Harley or York.

      One guy I really hope is there for 32 is Brayden Tracey, for 44 I am hoping for Albin Grewe.

        OK so I'm not going to be done in time for the draft. I'll have to complete my analysis post draft and then look at the winners and losers.

        I've only made it through the first-name-starts-with-A's so far. From that:

        I would peg Anttoni Honka as a guy who will go a lot higher in future re-drafts than he will go this weekend. Wouldn't call him a hidden gem, but he's relatively underrated I think.

        Many sources seem to have Alexei Protas ranked higher than Honka. I think that's a mistake and that Protas will go higher than he should.

        If Arthur Kaliyev is taken outside of the 1st round, he'll be a huge steal. If the Sens somehow get him in the 3rd (?!) round, I'll be ecstatic. Same with Newhook - I think you've got him way too low if you're hoping for him to be available in the 3rd.

                Haha so in my final mock I had Turcotte at the right number but the wrong team. Does that count for anything?

                          If Anaheim goes to the NTDP, I give up forever.

                            Ok what the fuck. All of the NHL GMs are conspiring against me.
