Ottawa is going to do very well at 3 and 5

At 3rd it will either be Byfield or Stutzle and at 5th either Drisdale, Perfetti, Raymond, Holtz, Rossi. They are set
They'll most likely wing up with Stutzle at three and then 'bank' on Drysdale at five.

That’s a serious haul if Ottawa can land both Stutzle and Drysdale

Something tells me Stevie Y wants the German - Stutzle badly, to go with the German - Seider whom they picked 6th overall last year
DOYLE WOULD’VE RATHER HAD KEVIN HAYES AT 7 YEARS 7 MILLION PER INSTEAD OF J.T. MILLER FOR A LATE 1ST RD PICK

No kidding, that is a serious haul. The Sens have a very impressive cast of young guys and prospects on the way, they're going to be something in a couple years or so. They could use some more foundational veteran leadership like Sutter and Eriksson though.

Found Corn.....he's got his gun and is out looking for Wids. :lol:

WHOA... you and Hargraves are on the same wavelength today... scary!
I wouldn’t do it, Lafrenierre is a stud. Still not sold on Byfield being a superstar, maybe more like an Eric Staal. Lafrenierre has star potential
Lafreniere is a winger though. Byfield is a center. Superstar or not, a shot at Byfield and one of Drysdale or Sanderson.....you just added a top-6 center and potential top pairing PPQB in one draft. The comparables there are Malkin, Makar, and McAvoy. Byfield is 6'4" 215. If he falls short of Malkin and ends up being a Getzlaf that's still a big win.

Oh and of course the whole BLM thing for optics too! :lol:

Byfield is a center.
Lafreniere/Byfield could be a 2020 Canadian version of the 2004 Russian Ovechkin/Malkin. A franchise winger vs franchise center, but Alexis is more of a playmaker vs sniper like Ovie, more like a Jonathan Huberdeau, whom some compared him to - https://www.nhl.com/news/nhl-central-sc ... -316476616

Byfield has been compared to Malkin and Getzlaf a lot, a high-end power center.
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."
