Stupid amount of skills, statistically the best transition player in the whole draft, great hands, good hockey sense. But he’s slight and inconsistent. He’s either gonna be a top-6 winger or a bust, no in-between. My pick as well, Amirov is the kind of skilled forward you need, and with the prospect pool we have, you gotta start swinging for the high risk high reward guys and we also have the luxury of not needing a prospect who can play right away Property Of XXl Larry Athletic Dept Family Name School T-Shirt (The athletic rankings said he might have a longer trajectory to get to the nhl) Lapierre never broke 17 goals, 57 points in all of his Jumior career. He had 2 goals this season. There is certainly better raw talent out there… I think he’s likely to be one of the highest ceilings available at 16, however there are a handful of others there with him potential-wise, and they don’t have the concussion problems, nor the red flags.

That, plus, he has one of the weakest shots I’ve seem in a first round projected prospect. He’s allergic to shooting the puck. I’d take Jarvis, Mercer, Bourque, Lundell, Holloway, Zary, Perreault, Amirov before him just to name a few Without even taking into account his injuries, Lapierre is currently a very one-dimensional player because his shot isn’t good. I can’t help but feel like there will be safer options with similar upside at 16 Property Of XXl Larry Athletic Dept Family Name School T-Shirt Except it is? Because it was confirmed he only had one concussion and the rest of his injuries were related to a dislocation in his spine There seems to be a very clear top 3, followed by 6 players that make up a clear top 9. It’s unlikely that any of those top 9 fall to 16, but that’s what we thought about Caufield last year. So my pick is one of those top 9.

If they are all taken, then it gets muddy. Quinn, Askarov, Jarvis, and Mercer seem to be consensus early/mid teens. Guys like Lundell, Guhle, Property Of XXl Larry Athletic Dept Family Name School T-Shirt Lapierre, Holloway, Schneider, Amoirov, and Perreault are also guys often ranked in the teens, but there are also rankings that have them lower. I wouldn’t be surprised Bourque, Foerster, or Zary get taken in the teens too. I’m hoping for Jarvis. I think unless you can get a winger, you take Lapierre. He’s a top 5 at least maybe top 3 talent in the draft just plagued by injuries. He won’t be needed instantly so you can nourish him. I feel like we have a good medical staff too so if you do something like what the Raptors did with Kawhi he can develop and be a very good player.
