  • DRAFTSITE DRAFT PREVIEW

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

Success has hampered the Predators draft position and centre Philip Tomasino, and Eeli Tolvanen have yet look like they are taking hold of any reign on the top lines at the pro level, but time will tell. LW Egor Afanasyev who was playing in Windsor of the OHL from Russia and is big and skilled, but his boots need improving. David Farrance is a solid prospect on defense who is getting bigger and stronger at BU. Finn Jusso Parssinen is a big centre-forward who has skill and is improving his footspeed, and Milwaukee's Rem Pitlick is the little engine that could and probably will eventually make the jump because compete level.I think now is also a time for the organization to re-evaluate the goal position since the heir apparent is noticeably undersized by the new NHL standards and their Milwaukee farmhand Connor Ingram isn't a larger than the average man either. Of all the teams selecting in the first round, I try and get a handle on what they will likely do. Even though I know Nashville loves drafting and developing defenseman, I cannot seem to shake the fact that if Carolina does select goalie Askarov (as so many of us are "predicting"....), and Florida does go for one of the second tier of defenders, there is going to be a pretty darn good player or two there on the board at forward that will be impossible to pass on. But...IF Florida takes a forward prospect, there will be more than one big defender sitting waiting for the Predators to call their name. Regardless of whether they go forward or defense in the first, they have two seconds and and two thirds to go the other direction, and fortify both ends AND maybe select the second goalie in the draft somewhere in there. Stay Tuned. --Bill Placzek--
