I don't think Blue Jackets will draft him, they need center. And Kekka is on the hot seat now with Johnny Gaudreanee and Laine on contracts. Sharks only started with their rebuild and their group doesn't afraid of Russians. And Michkov will not play for them next three years, it will help to achieve more talented players on the next drafts. Ducks should make serious work on this market, Zegras and McTavish should be better next season, Fantilli may be can make some impact from the start, if he will have good partners to make some job for him. And west is pretty open. I think jackets will draft Carlsson and it will make them very good in the next few years. Its not the question of next year, but in few years they have a lot of good stuff to make their sky high. Its too damn sad we don't have first this year. I'm not upset we spent it in Meier trade, im happy with it. Its just so fun to work with the draft, there are so many interesting players in the first round. But I just don't have so much time to make so much deep dive to study potential 40-70 picks. Will figure it out after draft and will watch tapes/games of what we will got. Obvious need is centers, but I have a feeling, that good ones will not fall so far. I think if there are no obvious options with big scoring centers, we should find more drivers on this draft, may be with lower floor. Feels like we don't have enough in the system. Would be great to find power scoring forwards(Vadim Moroz). And mobile defensive defensemen with good skating ofcourse. I know we have some, but defensive work in nhl is so tough, more often its about mentality and defensive IQ(don't forget about good skating and normal level of other skills). And future cap issues, new deals of Luke, Dawson and Simon will push organisation to make regular rotation in the bottom of offense and defense. Can Fitz please scout the KHL and find us a legit Russian goalie prospect? That's what I'd like to see happen.
