It's a compliment to Kells to garner this kind of interest. These are the kinds of click-baity things these guys do because our players fly under the radar and they're trying to look like they discovered some unknown mystery.

The reality is that Keller has put himself in a terrific position to steer his career and I'm sure we'll find out soon enough if he wants to turn it around here or if he wants to explore other options. I would hate to lose him, but he's earned the right to decide his future.

Lottery results: Dammit Coyotes get 6th. There are basically 5 good players that are difference makers in the draft. :bang:

Blackhawks get #1. Oh well. :(

I actually see it as 6 players deep at the top. Who are you not including?

Connor Bedard, C
Adam Fantilli, C
Matvei Michkov, RW
Leo Carlsson, C
Will Smith, C
Zachary Benson, LW

I would say Benson is a step below.

I like this site for player rankings because it consolidates most of the top NHL writers rankings and gives an average:

At least we salvaged the Ottawa pick. The nightmare would have been the Sens winning in top 5, therefore protecting this year's pick, then they would likely make the playoffs so that pick would be way late in the round. So, we basically traded Chych for a 12 pick and a couple of second rounders.
