2020 NHL Draft
 
I know I'm starting this waaaay too early, but was trying to figure this out.

We get Vancouver's first round this year if they make the playoffs, or next year if they do not? So lottery protected this year, no protection next year???

So, if that's the case, we want them to miss the playoffs so we have a chance at a lottery pick next year?

Yeah, you want the weird scenario where we end up with a #1 overall pick because a GM agreed to an open-ended pick stipulation that no GM should ever agree to because weird scenarios like that do happen and said GM ends up the punch line of sports trivia jokes forever.

They’re pretty firmly in contention for the postseason though. I guess stranger things have happened.

I don't know how firm their position really is. They're really on the bubble along with four other teams in the Pacific Division.

Draft moved to October 6 and 7.

We're gonna be waiting a looooooong time to pick.

Depends on what we get for Killorn.

RLR arrived today. The now annual dance of trying to decide if this is the year they'll go back to drafting the BPA with the most upside or if they're sticking with system/role players.

We have four picks from the early 60's-94 so there shouldn't be any reason the team doesn't take a shot or two on a high upside player.

One name in particular that I really like is Yevgeni Oksentyuk. I feel like he's going to be overlooked because of his size, but he has decent (but not exceptional) speed, excellent compete level and a high hockey IQ. Sounds kind of familiar doesn't it.

Your Tyler Johnson replacement:

Kasper Simontaival RW 5-9/178 R 11 Jan 02 Tappara Tampere Great pure scorer, but small and already fully grown.
