the devils can do pretty well with forwards in this draft, considering who could be available at their pick in each round. i’m not saying they should choose only forwards for their first three picks, but based on some of the rankings i’ve seen, some of these guys have a decent chance of being available:
round 1: pastrnak, vrana, goldobin, scherbak, ho sang, schmaltz, lemieux
round 2: kamenev, quenneville, karlsson, point
round 3: karabacek, tkachyov
honestly hoping the devils select kamenev in the first round if the first four i listed are off the table.
and who knows, we might get lucky if one of fiala, kempe, or barbashev falls for some reason
