My personal choice would be Bittner. The likely choice IMO is Kylington. Kylington has a couple red flags (his drop from pre-season top 5 to not even a first rounder) but Yzerman has taken a few guys in the 2nd round with question marks in the past (Erne, Kucherov).

It also might not be crazy to think that Yzerman wouldn't move down again if another team is in love with someone at 33.

We're doing what Detroit used to do a lot.

They clearly wanted Roslovic and bailed when he got picked ahead of us.

There was a cluster of 5-6 guys who were all worthy of that 28th pick, none of which they were gaga in love with, so why not trade back to 33 and still get one and get an extra high 3rd rounder?

If I'm the Lightning, I try to package to two 3rds to get a third pick in the top-60 and see if I can pick off all my organizational needs boom, boom, boom: power forward, goaltender, center, in any order you like.

What makes you think they were after Roslovic? I'm good with trading down, I thought Gurianov would have been a good pick where we were sitting surprised to see him go so early.

Surprised how many of the guys I'm interested are still on the board. Roy, Carlo, Bittner, and Kylington are probably my top 4 right now.

Hope you are right. Although would think if they wanted him, they would have just grabbed him at 28 and been done with it.

It was leaked. Montreal wanted him too.

Default 2nd day moves are starting

Eddie Lack did not get a great return, but at least it solves a team need for G which could make it easier for us to get Blackwood.

Yzerman value and depth of this draft should make for some interesting analysis.

I was thinking Larsson (sealed the decision to move down), Juulsen, and Roslovic.

Still on my Board (stunned) - Roy, Sprong, and Fischer

So, Spencer and Stephens. Woohoo, two guys I've done zero research on.

Wow look at Kylington drop like a rock
