  • DRAFTSITE DRAFT PREVIEW

Team Needs: RW, D, C, LW, G

The BlueJackets have been without a true impact scorer to play along side their budding power centre, Pierre-Luc Dubois. The defense boasts two star defenders and a pretty good group of pairs behind them. The line-up consists of all around players and an addition of a couple high end attackers would be just what this franchise needs to continue their upward trend. And now would be a good time to unearth more quality defenseman, who can start to re-populate the backline with new blood too. Most of the players they have drafted are already being called upon to be complimentary pieces with the parent club, but Liam Foudy, Alexandre Texier, Emil Bemstrom are probably not going to be counted upon to be first line replacements. They have big goalie prospect in Daniil Tarasov, but it always good to have a surplus as the past has shown them. They have two nice Russian prospects in winger Kirill Marchenko and big Centre-forward Dmitri Voronkov, but there arrival across the pond is undetermined. So an impact scoring forward, a scoring centre, and more high end top four defensive prospects are on the want list. --Bill Placzek--
