2020 NHL Draft Thread: Devils: #7 Holtz!

Late to the thread and admittedly didn’t see much of any of these guys this year but regarding Rossi, drafting him seems like taking more of what we already have.   Hell, the hockey news listed his best case projection to be “Nico Hischier.”   Can’t just keep going after guys who all do the same thing.  Toronto already tried that and they have a deeply flawed team despite all of the talent.  Fitz seems to be doing a pretty good job of stocking the farm with guys with different skill sets.  
 

edit:  reading back a page or two, Guadana kind of already made this point.  I agree

Great Mercer shift, but defesmen should neutralize him there.

Anyway he is hell of a player. I think devs fans still dont understand what a player they got.

Like i said somewhere. I saw him play against Russia when they played in my town and i was more impressed with him than Lafreniere in that one game

Laf is better skater and it helps him to control movement of game, but mercer is more agressive magnetic player. Too bad Laf doesnt play tonight. Lapierre and Mercer looks better by a head today.

That video makes you wonder why he was available at 18. 

He kind of fell to the Devils...IIRC he was ranked #13 on the draft show.  Not sure why he dropped.
