I would not be surprised if in this draft, 2 of the first 3 picks (assuming we have them on draft day) are used on D-men.

Obviously, you go for the most talent available, but with the forward ranks not looking too bad overall and the prospect pool for defensemen now consisting of Kylington, it might be necessary to devote a bunch of picks in that direction, even for the next couple seasons.

However, if the BPA is a forward or a goalie, then you go for it. Just like when Parsons fell into their lap.

This will be a BPA draft.

We need a little bit of quality in any position.

With the RW position pretty much solved this offseason, we can pretty much go with any position this draft and I wouldn’t be mad. Don’t move draft positions, just wait for the fallers to fall into your laps.

That’s how Detroit and NYI got solid prospects in the 1st round. I think we can get a faller in the 20’s (assuming that’s where we draft)

This is purported to be a strong WHL draft class.

Peyton Kerbs should be a top ten pick. Hes from Okotoks.

'Krebs'. Peyton's brother Dakota plays for the Hitmen. Super great family from which they come. Their sister Maddison is a tremendously talented singer.

Peyton has always played elite level hockey and will be rewarded in 2019.

Top goalie seems to be Spencer Knight. Big American kid.
Right now most projections have him as a late first/early second - which seems to be the growing trend for when teams star to pick goalies
a goalie hasn't been selected in the top 20 since 2012 (Vasilevsky)

A few weeks ago Sam Cosentino detailed some of the top prospects this year.


https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/...kings-october/


Quote:
1. Jack Hughes, C, (USNTDP) 5’10.25, 168 pounds: Give it a month to separate the haves and have-nots before fans of the have-nots begin living by the phrase, “lose to choose Hughes.”

2. Vasili Podkolzin, RW, (SKA St. Petersburg, MHL) 6’1, 190 pounds: If first impressions mean anything, then we’re looking at a budding star. Has produced in all the major international events to date, and was particularly noticeable at the Hlinka-Gretzky Cup where he put up 11 points, including a hat trick in the bronze medal game.

3. Dylan Cozens, C, (Lethbridge Hurricanes, WHL) 6’3, 181 pounds: Quiet confidence, extremely respectful, his character alone makes him a first-rounder. But with size and skill he’s cemented amongst the elite in this draft class.

4. Kirby Dach, C, (Saskatoon Blades, WHL) 6’3.5, 199 pounds: Used the Hlinka-Gretzky Cup as a springboard. High hockey IQ consistently has him in good position to score. While finishing was an issue a year ago, the early returns say that won’t be a problem this season.

5. Kaapo Kakko, RW, (TPS, Liiga) 6’2.25, 194 pounds: Thinks it well, enjoys controlling the pace of the game which he can do with size and good puck protection skills. Off to a great start in the Liiga. The next big thing from Finland in what has been an amazing run for the country since 2015.

6. Raphael Lavoie, C, (Halifax Mooseheads, QMJHL) 6’3.5, 191 pounds: Has size and strength that will make him a physical force once he fills out. Is a snipe show who doesn’t mind the play turning physical. Lackadaisical lapses creep into his game from time-to-time, but those should become less frequent with age and working under new Halifax bench boss Eric Veilleux.

7. Bowen Byram, D, (Vancouver Giants, WHL) 6’0.5, 194 pounds: Experienced great growth under Giants assistant coach Dean Chynoweth last season and should benefit even further this season being exposed to Chynoweth’s replacement, Jamie Heward.

8. Alex Turcotte, C, (USNTDP) 5’11, 189 pounds: High hockey IQ as a result of coming from a hockey family. Is self aware and doesn’t play beyond his capabilities. Has good vision and shows patience with the puck.

9. Peyton Krebs, C, (Kootenay Ice, WHL) 5’11.25, 180 pounds: Takes a pro mentality to the ice regardless of game or practice. Well-rounded player who drives the play and makes others around him better.

10. Philip Broberg, D, (AIK, Allsvenskan) 6’2.75, 199 pounds: A massive coming-out party at the Hlinka-Gretzky Cup brought him from out of nowhere to first-round consideration. Fearless in rushing the puck, he will have to improve his stick skills to be considered a true, modern defenceman.

110 CHL Players to Watch for 2019 NHL Draft

http://chl.ca/article/110-chl-player...2019-nhl-draft

Looks like there might be some quality defence men to be found in the third round. I can imagine that the Flames will be looking to re-stock their D prospects since the the Heat is fairly devoid of NHL potential players.
