Draft lands July 7-8 (after the signing bonus day *nudge nudge wink wink*). Leafs pick in rounds 1, 3, 7 so it should be boring...

Ottawa's 7th overall pick is in play for an immediate impact player.

28) Buffalo (Florida)
29) Tampa
30) Montreal (Calgary)
31) Arizona (Carolina)
32) Arizona (Colorado)

If the Rangers and Edmonton advance to the conference finals the Leafs would draft 25th.  If St. Louis somehow came back and beat Colorado they would draft 24th.

Trade back to the end of the 1st + second/3rd round pick(s) and draft Filip Bystedt and Sam Rinzel

Trying to find a centre that makes the most sense at around that spot, doesn't seem to be a ton of them there in rankings. Nathan Gaucher from the Q would be the player who comes up most often in that area. More of a big, competitive two-way centre though, which certainly isn't a bad thing if he had a highly skilled centre prospect or two, but unfortunately that's not the case.

Frank Nazar is probable the pipedream pick to keep an eye on. He's kind of all over the place in rankings. Some say top-10, others say in the 20s, most seem to put him in the mid-teens. Would be a no-brainer at 25 or whatever, but probably doesn't happen. If he falls into the late teens or early 20s could be a guy to potentially trade up for.

Everything after the top 10 is sort of flippy-floppy around the standings. Some lists' top 15 guys are down in the 20s and 30s on other lists, and vice versa.

BPA, but if a tiebreak is needed, lean towards targeting centres. Pick any of these guys that fall to our slot:
Owen Beck
Rutger McGroarty (what a name)
Gleb Trikozov
Jiri Kulich
Connor Geekie
Marco Kasper

Watched Owen Beck a few times. Like his game.

McGroarty, has to be McGroarty.

If you want a fun name, Owen Beck plays behind Luca Del Bel Belluz.

He's a good player too. Needs work on his D game but is a good 200 ft player.

I was hoping maybe there'd be a highly thought of goalie prospect expected to go around where the Leafs are drafting, but the goalies in this draft seem to be . . . less obviously impressive. There's a couple intriguing European goalies, but they're likely 2nd or 3rd round picks. Hopefully, Dubas can swing some of his magic and add some picks while still getting one of the guys he's targeting.

I hope we draft the best available goalie if there's one available.

I've been calling for that for years.

Please, for the love of all that is holy, take the 1st round pick and go out and draft a reasonably high scoring CHL player with decent size who could theoretically play C. You know, the kind of player the Leafs haven't drafted in a long time and who almost always represents the guys the Leafs should have drafted(Jordan Kyrou, Robert Thomas, Dawson Mercer) instead of the guy on grainy super 8 they take who's 22 years old and playing in the last remaining Soviet Republic.

It's easy! These guys are well scouted! They represent the sort of thing the Leafs actually need! They'll play in the World Juniors! There are no awards for "Outsmarted the Draft"!
I wish to hell I'd never said "Winning isn't everything it's the only thing". What I believe is, if you go out on a football field, or any endeavour in life, and you leave every fibre of what you have on the field, then you've won.
