TLN: 1. Matthew Knies

Even if his offensive creativity doesn’t develop, you can easily pencil him into the bottom 6 as a forechecking menace. His floor is an NHL player. Obviously we’d like for him to become more than just an energy winger and hopefully he doesn’t settle into tunnel vision.

I’ll admit I know nothing about Monahan. What’s his deal? I see he’s only 27, his numbers have steadily dropped. Is this an injury thing? Is he just not that good anymore? What’s the story?

Just glomming this here because it’s part of the impetus for the transaction (Kadri)

Translation: Calgary will be ceding only the worst 1st rd pick it can muster.

TLN: 2. Nick Robertson
He’s still good! The door is open for him to grab a spot opposite Nylander and a rejuvenated Tavares. Let’s see if he can channel his intensity into more calculated moments. And please don’t break.

PPP: 20. Mikhail Abramov
Let’s see if he can adjust to the AHL and find ways to dominate the game the way he did in the Q

I think Robertson is another "top 6 or bust" kind of player.

I largely agree with that. If he improves his skating posture and gooses his speed, his work rate could give him a Trevor Moore-like role. Coupled with his shooting ability, he’s an easier player to shelter and leverage than Der-Arguchintsev who needs lots of puck involvement to be useful.

I have Der-Arguchintsev in the same boat as Abramov, Abbruzzese, Miettinen, and Ovchinnikov; and to a lesser extent Joe Miller, Ty Voit, and Nick Moldenhauer due to their longer runways. All of them are shootier than SDA.

I like SDA and don't totally agree with the assessment. I think he's got good speed and while he's not NHL ready he has only played 1 pro season. He'll just be turning 22 in Sept. It will be interesting to see how he does this coming season for the Marlies.

I think that’s all true and it’s a real caveat, but if his play style is top-6, there either needs to be overwhelming offense, or some grit and grind that’ll help them weather top defenses so they can contribute complementarily. Otherwise you are in the Adam Brooks, Seth Griffith range. I don’t see a legitimate fit for him in the bottom of the roster where opportunities are actually open.

Happy to be surprised and wrong though

TLN: 3. Topi Niemelä

There aren’t really many (or any) two-way RHD in our system (Villenueve might be getting there, but he’s developing from the opposite direction — adding defense to his offense). Probably going to see him in Toronto after this season.

PPP: 21. Semyon Der-Arguchintsev

Dropping down the rankings because he’s an offensively exciting but lacking size, speed, and visible demonstration of being NHL ready in D+4. He was extremely young when drafted, he is sort of growing taller (not really thicker). While generally reliable off the puck and pretty compelling with it, he just has a lot of the hallmarks of a tweener prospect if he doesn’t start standing out more at the minor league level.

TLN: 4. Roni Hirvonen

He is so pesky and persistent and skilled enough to hurt you if you lose track of him. He’s mini Bunting.

PPP: 22. Ryan Tverberg

Similar to Brandon Lisowsky, our most recent 7th rd pick, he has a some standout characteristics that have led to production (he plays like a wrecking ball and will sow chaos for maybe points). There are things to develop to round out his game.
