Every article, I try to include a poll question for readers to vote on, then review the results from the week’s polls every weekend. In each of the ‘Draft Options’ articles, which focused on a different player who the Ducks could select, I asked this question:
“Would you be happy with the selection if the Ducks took this player with the sixth-overall pick?”
Here are the results:
Depends who’s available: 15%
I have to agree with this one. With most players, I’d be on a ‘wait and see’ basis depending on who's available but Drysdale is the top defenseman available and would fill a need for the Ducks. If Anaheim was able to get him with the sixth-overall pick, it would be a win.
Depends who’s available: 41%
As is the case with many of the players on this list, I think it really depends who’s available. While I do like Holtz and he’d be a huge help for the future of the Ducks’ forward group, there may be more well-rounded players left when it’s Anaheim’s turn to pick.
Depends who’s available: 20%
Quinn was the only player where the majority of readers outright voted No. I do like him, but I too would question the decision a bit if the Ducks took Quinn at sixth overall, based on the caliber of players that will still be available at that point.
Depends who’s available: 36%
Perfetti is another player with huge upside and he’s pretty much a lock to be a productive top-six NHL forward, at minimum. I certainly wouldn’t be against Anaheim selecting Perfetti, though I do have other players ahead of him in my personal draft order.
Depends who’s available: 33%
I feel similarly with Raymond like I do with Holtz and Perfetti, where I wouldn’t be opposed to the Ducks taking him but it’s really going to come down to who’s left. He's a very well-rounded player who would provide a boost for Anaheim’s top-six.
Depends who’s available: 7%
Rossi is one of two players, along with Drysdale, who I’m actively hoping is available at sixth overall. He has tremendous upside and would be a quality top-six center, if not a first-line center. Between Rossi and Drysdale, here’s to hoping that one is still available when Anaheim is picking.
