Interesting.

Still think they will pick Kotkaniemi at 3.

Isn't that way above what he's projected at? Better to trade down to where the Rangers are(who want to move up), and he would likely still be on the board.

'
If he is your guy and you can't trade down to a spot where you think he still might be on the board, you just draft him.

He is currently ranked anywhere from 4-10, depending on the draft rankings you want to follow... so not a complete stretch for a team that has not had a real center in 20+ years or so.

Woah! Dobson at 3 would be a surprise, but something the Habs would absolutely do.

he's ranked 4th on the latest mock draft by Pronman, can't move to 9th, too low

He's been moving up in ranks as the draft has approached.

He's been steadily climbing the ranks after the U18's and because there aren't any centremen.

and the habs are finding out trading for a young center is extremely difficult, most teams draft them. They drafted a center last year in the 1st round and they will again this year IMO

That works, then the Sens can draft Zadina.

But knowing them, they'll take Tkachuck

They aren't the gamebreakers the wingers and defenders around them are though.

Dobson is very, very good.

I think the Pietrangelo's comparison is bang on. Then again I believe there's also a possibility he'd end up being a solid top 4 instead of a superstar player. Kinda like we've seen with Darnell Nurse.

I'd rather go Zadina or Bouchard at #3.

Dobson should be picked in the top 10 imo.
