Feels like this is getting set up for Dach to go #3, and Byram to go #4. I'd rather the Avs go for a forward in this draft but if they feel the defenseman is the best player available, then so be it.

Scratch that. Looks like Chicago is just about dead-set on taking Alex Turcotte, which makes sense for them.

So it looks like it'll be Hughes/Kaako/Turcotte, which leaves the Avs at #4 to pick between Dach, Cozens, Byram, and Zegras. Podkolzin's stock continues to plummet.

Really don't know who I'd like for Colorado to go with. Byram is possibly the most talented player on the board at that point but the Avs really, really need a center. Dach is supremely talented and obviously a pretty big kid, but some red flags surround his play away from the puck. Cozens is the exact opposite--smooth skating forward with good two-way ability, but his offensive upside may be limited. Zegras isn't big, but talented and scrappy. I'm guessing, now, that they take Zegras. Of course I might change my mind a little later. :laugh:

Pronman's mock is out https://theathletic.com/1012017/2019/06 ... nhl-draft/

I won't give it all away but he does confirm what we already know: Kakko made it a tighter race than expected with his strong showing at the Worlds, but Hughes will still go no. 1.

Other notes:

Edmo at 8 is in play. Holland ain't waiting.
German D Moritz Seider is rising
Russian F Vasili Podkolzin is falling
Spencer Knight a rare goalie that'll go in the first round
