Owen Power, good luck in Buffalo.

The new Kraken get their first franchise player with the 2nd overall pick. Guessing that’s Matthew Beniers.

Ducks get third, Devils get fourth, Jackets fifth.

It was pointed out that Buffalo was the team that Taylor Hall started the year with.

Only ONE team fell down a spot, that was the Ducks, who have never picked first. They'll still get a good player though.

This draft is gonna be wild...due to lack of scouting we might see a few busts, and a few surprises in the coming years.

Someone on a scouting site said Buffalo shouldn't pick Power because they already have Dahlin. Really? That's just dumb IMO. I don't see the issue with having two franchise defensemen. Apparently they have a couple other blueline prospects in the system that could make them a force in coming years...if they don't fuck it up like usual.

Trade Eichel for the no. 2+ and walk away with Power and Beniers...

Buffalo should do that...because I think they'll be better off without Eichel. But that's MHO.

Having 2 franchise defensemen would be a huge problem.
