Browner and welcome to a four year old court.
As you know, I'm your host, Logan Brown, but I will be discussing Ah, 2 to 3 main topics.
Personally, my amnesia grade for every draft that first will be my NHL draft grade for each teen talking about, we'll discuss how they did if their picks for good and I was only the first round.
That's not going to like distance extracts.
I'll discuss the best restricted free agents still available in the NHL right now, and then finally, we'll discuss the my predictions for the world junior championships.
So to start off with my pick my pick analysis for need for the initial draft, we're gonna be starting with the first overall pick.
Uh, he was stuck up on the New Jersey Devils, played for the United States National Development Team.
Overall, he was really, really good pick by the devil's on Lee.
Ah, few worries I have about him.
He is 5 10 so he's not big.
He only weighs 170 pounds, and he's small.
He's not used to playing with older, stronger people.
However, He's a good player devil.
It gives them a good center that they need, because now they have he sure and hey of him and he.
Sure, that's obviously a big bonus.
And I just feel like it was a great pick by the devil's.
It was what they needed.
Um, and I feel like it was good.
It was honestly, like exactly what the devil's needed and honest and doubles leading a center, as they do have he shirt, but they need somebody else.
And maybe he chooses lovely place here.
Everybody playing second or third line will definitely having he sure starting.
That's the only thing.
Um, next moving to the Rangers.
Ah, they have couple cock.
Oh, I think that was a great pick.
Still, honestly, I think he could have possibly on first of all, just because he has a bigger and be stronger than, um, then his counterpart in Jack use.
He has a good shot.
6 to 194 pounds.
Give them a little strength.
EJ is a bigger player than Hughes is.
Whoever he does not amount to the same sketch that's that he was out of.
Hughes had that 50 games played with 34 goals and 70 insists capo and 45 games like 22 goals and 16 is's.
Some may say this because they played the Swedish Elite League, However, compared to Hughes, who scored that many more points.
Doesn't even matter that it wasn't high and high caliber league.
That's still great.
That's over 100 points and, sadly, component.
He's strong in the park, so that's a obviously a bonus.
But I feel like he's not.
He will be good, but he will never be as good as say, Ah, someone like Jack years for sorry.
I was on Second unit exploits you.
Sorry about that, don't you? Perfect.
Okay, so anyway, we're continuing.
Moving in on to the Chicago Blackhawks.
Block Hawk selected.
Kirby docked with the third overall pick ease from Saskatoon Blades and W H L from Canada.
He's 6 498 pounds of the biggest player in the top three.
Definitely, I'd say very good pick overall and just, I mean, my bad cup of Joe.
He played in the TPS and the finish.
A little back street.
He had 62 games, played 25 goals in 48 assists.
So more games than any of us have two picks, the more points than capo.
He has size and SMURRAY skill.
However, I just feel like he is a say.
He was right to go fourth overall.
They were expecting him not to be going that high.
They thought that outs Turkle would go through.
However, I feel like the box made a good pick.
They needed that.
You know that big play, that center at six foot four, this really big.
And this isn't the honestly the Blackhawks lack because I have a lot of small players, so this 64 center is definitely a bonus for them.
So that was a great decision by the black offs of fit in perfectly and just good.
We're going to the fourth pick.
Bo and Bayram, a defenseman from Vancouver in the W H O from Canada, 61 195 pounds.
He scored 60 played 67 games last year with 26 goals for Travis's, who put up a lot of points, he's very, very good on offense, however many scouts, so you could work on his defense of gameplay and right now avalanche, they have good defense.
How they did it meant moving Tyson Barrie, so that could be a problem.
So overall, that was honestly, a good pick is not for the top four picks.
I will give the top a little more more.
Los Angeles Kings Alex Turcotte, from the National You 18 United States National Development Team, is trying to go third overall.
United States always serve us.
His 18 small, though 5 11 186 pounds, played 37 games.
27 goals, said Francis.
That's great stats, however you small, but just two way forward, Just very good for over often seen.
Okay, for a top five, I'm gonna rent.
Give them great for the New Jersey Devils.
I give them an A minus on Lee.
Concern I have is, well, he's be ready.
I know we definitely best player in the draft, but will he be ready? I don't know.
Hes small, and that's could be a problem, maybe four.
It's a more weight on.
I could give a actually live it up tonight.
Now to the number to the Rangers.
I give them a solid a couple cock, a great pick and as we know it's gonna be huge capo anyways.
I think we'll have a better start off your menus because he's stronger and he's bigger and the and he's played with men before.
However, Hughes will eventually probably halfway through the season ish, maybe a little earlier Will fixes him to play that way.
Next for the struggle.
Blackhawks Curvy Dodge.
Oh, honestly, I'll give them an A minus.
I mean, he's a good Kirby does your good players and the defensive line is big.
However, I feel that maybe Bo and by room or a Alex Trickle could have possibly been better.
Avalanche Get them in solid.
That was a great pick for even though people say I should have seventh, I think he was a great pick poem by a strong player.
So, yeah, moving on too outs.
That's a even maybe even a plus for the King's Should've on third, honestly, but he's went.
He stayed in one office, and that's a great pick for the Kings.
You're under the sixth pick.
The truck redwing selected more eat cider as a rendering fan.
No biased here, but that was a surprising pick.
However, I think he will be good with a year developing the HL.
He'll be a great player.
He's big, he's strong.
He 632 away and he's right.
Chauncey events in.
Which is exactly what the Red Wings need.
However, his points are a little startling.
He played in the German league toward, played 29 games, two goals.
Forces, however, however mural, hi skin in another pie room in German early Lead had 10 points and look where he is now.
So I'm not that many rules worries for them.
However, I feel like they could have taken someone like Dylan cousins earlier.
So that's my only problem.
Moving on to the next pick.
Buffalo Sabres Selected Dylan Cosenza.
Great Peck. Honestly amazing.
Nothing really to say up.
Maybe we'll all be going to the 10th Power because after that, here's a look crazy movie on Edmondson.
Looking film bore Berg from a key, eh? A.
I k from Sweden and traditionally 17 though he's younger, but we just don't have time to degrade.
63 200 pounds Shoots left, played 41 gave had trouble.
Something just honestly, nothing.
I really can't say about fine pick then and doctor, the great picks looked in Trevor's egress.
Great Playa, Honestly, that's a great pig, brother Should.
On fifth honestly and 6600 everything found 60 game plays say 60 games played 26 goals.
60 witnesses. It's cryptic.
Then, finally, for the tons, the Vancouver Canucks selected Vassily Pod closing.
I'm sorry if I butchered your name.
But you played at never St Petersburg in Russia.
He was excited to go to ninth when tense.
And there is pretty big 61196 played 14 games.
US here with six points, five points.
Only reason I feel like he could have gone higher is if he didn't have a Russian contract still going.
That's obviously a problem.
However, Vancouver needed someone like him on the right wing.
So what is Russia's Russian contract with Russia's over? He'll be back.
So for those five, I give Detroit Red Wings, even though right wing Santa gave him a B plus.
They could have picked some of my don't cousins.
But I mean defense.
That is good, but that's very going off on a limb.
That's Buffalo Sabres still in cousins with them in a A.
Nothing right there.
Ah, I mention Oilers.
I mean, honestly, I'm gonna give Have to give him a B plus.
Also Could have got some Like Trevor Xigris.
Much better player. Anaheim Ducks a plus. Troubles.
Tired. Just watching the world juniors downstairs.
So, honestly, he was a steal then. Finally.
Don't want to push his name again.
Someone called MVP.
Honestly, that I am honest.
Okay, So next moving for next topic, we're gonna be talking about the, uh, best 15 best restricted free agents that are still available.
And while I'm a godless here.
But my opinion, the number one restricted free agent available right now it's Mitch Marner.
I stake him over Britain Point because Mitch Marner has led Brigham Point.
Doesn't really know how to play as a star.
He has this rate supporting cast, but saying that martyr has a bad someone has a great team, but point has a much better supporting cast.
Then Martyr has and Mark has Stamkos tko trough Hedman.
He was seen the week However, he breaking point could also I could.
I'll see him as the first because he is one of the best two way sentiments.
And he had some silky votes.
Not that many, but still, he's a amazing put 41 goals and 92 points. That's incredible.
That's why I could say it's in the middle.
However they appoint has no arbitration rights and Marner has no arbitration or junior.
He mourners a right winger.
And as you know, point is a center so honestly, what the problem was So with resigning lightning not resigning point and martyr not resigning with, uh drawn after the narrative money.
And honestly, I have to go on those general managers where they're not being smart and they're signing these lower name players instead of thinking about signing point and murder.
So I'm saying, Martyr number one point number two listening.
My number three spot, I'm gonna say, probably gonna same Mikko Rantanen.
He had 14 ones in the playoffs, and he had ah, and is a career point per game performer in the postseason.
So he's a good postseason player, also was on the best line in hockey.
He's one investments and hockey.
I would say there's only better line.
Was Malkin Castle? Well, um, Crosby, however, that's on aligning.
We'll discuss left as we know.
So you don't want the best sounds in hockey? Randy and Landis.
That's a great line.
So for that, after I put it at number three is a great player.
Only 22 super strong on the puck.
I take one of the best talents, if not all Star game.
He was an all Star game. Say, I'll be repeat. Also game.
He's amazing player.
So if they don't resign in, if I have luncheon, resigning will be very depressed.
Next is Matthew could truck.
I'm deciding between either him or Bach.
Bach Bester broke Buzzer had kind of a drop off year last year and could Truck was on the rise.
However, I still think best was a better player.
He strong is great shot.
My results are mbpd.
That'll sophomore slump.
He sold a great year last year, maybe a little overshadowed by a last Pederson, but I'd say number four on putting Brock faster, definitely, then moving into number five.
This is where it gets a little tough time between Charlie McAvoy, Kyle Connor and my truck.
I think I'm gonna say Matthew could truck.
He had a great year.
Last year was a great offensive player.
Six overall pick.
And honestly, you're just a good player.
Yeah, he finished the season with illegals.
What's your weight crying games? Yeah, He played 80 games, had 34 assists, 34 goals, 43 assists and 77 points in a game.
It's great for him. He's a young.
I feel that it's just he's just better, but he's not the best.
That's why I put him under best. Right. Number five.
We're going to number six.
I'm gonna say I've have to go.
Charlie McAvoy Young.
He's good, great defenseman, and he's getting a lot of experience playing with another great players a day.
No Ciara, however, Charles on the end of his career and, uh, McAvoy is going up next.
I put Kyle Connor he's a good player.
I mean, solid with one a peg if Winnipeg resigns and that's great for them.
But I have a feeling you can maybe scaring a little bit around.
Maybe going back problem. Bacchus.
That's a great team with line and all events.
However, I'm not sure.
I mean co comes a great player and all, but what's it gonna be being offered? And is Winnipeg offering him enough? Has he not signed in? Is it is it? Has he not signed because he doesn't? He's thinking he's not getting us.
So that is possibly why Carla Corners signs next moving in After I put Kyle Connor, I'm gonna say Rob a ble patio idea.
Patrick Chinese resign.
Honestly, I think I may put him above.
Call Connor now that I think about it, See just a stronger player than Kyle Connor.
And he had a little bit of a slump this year, and I think a lot of people are getting up on him.
And because of that stolen best players in the league will be sophomore.
Some what I say he's just maybe just had a bad year.
I mean, as we know Patrick.
He wrapped it up for me and fantasy this year until you had that bad, bad French.
So other than that, I mean, I feel like he's honestly better than Kyle Connor but Kyle Connor didn't have itself were slumped over One of my guys, they could gather both back. Will be cooperating.
Um, I think it just honestly Winnipeg is in a little bit of situation here, proving on time or Kyle Connor or lightning.
I think they should pay line anymore because it just makes more sense.
I mean, I just Honestly, I feel that a better.
Ah, better overall thing would be to sign.
Um, it would be a sign.
What is the ah ha lot over Connor? Honestly.
So finally talking a little bit more as moving in, I think I'm gonna put Yep.
Scant number not.
He's a good player on foot, mother.
Everything to 10 backgrounds.
He's a good defenseman, great defense, and playing with partner Jones out in Columbus if they re signed him and they have tons of money to resign to know that everyone left.
So, yeah, I think it's a good deal.
It's gonna be great for Rusty.
Then at number 10 I'm going to put a hold on my computer breaking in a number 10.
I'm going to say over Richie for the goal for, um over, David.
I'm gonna put, um, Pavel Butch Nevins for the Rangers.
He just resign with the Rangers? Technically, he's not available still, but he's a great player, honestly.
But savage, he's in a lot of playing time, so I feel like that.
So I put a gun to protect.
Okay, so now I'm gonna be moving into this.
My predictions of the best team in the world in your summer showdown.
Um, I got to say I think the best team bill will be the United States As we saw how they didn't distract us here with so many good players, I feel this is just a positive for then and in the summer class that they have.
Even though Finland beat them in the 12 19 World Junior Championships, I feel that the United States is better in the fact that they are stronger, faster team.
They have so many young, good liars.
I see no reason why they're not one of the best teams in the world.
So that's why someone will be good.
Sweet will be good.
Canada will be good.
Now, my last thing is, um, I've been my last little thing will be talking about.
It isn't a risk to sign players like isn't risk like we saw back back in the day.
What's his name? Islanders goalie.
Find out his name right now, but, ah, he played three good seasons of them.
He said, 15 years.
You absolutely immense amount of number.
Um, sorry, but I'm just finding out his name.
Rick DiPietro started massive contract thinking all sports you have to work like think about is it a risk signing these players from long term deals? Young pleasures? I know that making what, 35 40,000,000 year for the next five years or never gonna quit it's gonna send out like that.
I feel like is a problem in sports who really have to deal with.
And we saw it in Deep Pietro.
So that's why I think they ever That's why I think there's a risk.
Okay, So, um, now one more thing.
