I do wish Rossi wasn’t the elder statesman of the elite, but someone has to be.
a poster on HF who talks to scouts and stuff thinks the Sens have Stutzle right there with Byfield, but who really knows.
I don't mind Rossi but I'd be disappointed if he's the highest guy we pick. I am very concerned with his combo of size and skating to turn into a 1st line C. I still think I'd take Perfetti over him for his offensive upside.
If Lafreniere and Byfield are gone, I think we take Raymond before Rossi, but I get your point.
In my opinion we need a C and Rossi just happens to be the only C in the grouping BPA’s available. He’s a coaches dream. He’s plays all three zones, is skilled, smart and can impact the game in every way.
If we get Byfield, I think we don’t take Rossi after. Raymond, Stutzle and Drysdale will probably be our targets if we get Byfield.
Just my thoughts on what the Sens will do.
If we get Byfield there's a strong case to be made that the sens won't take another C and quite possibly a RHD like Drysdale. but I have to admit that the idea of having two top C's like Byfield and Perfetti/Rossi would just set us up ridiculously.
it be crazy.
personally though i hope we win the draft. we get Laf and then we pray to dear god that Detroit has a hard on for strutzle so we can get byfield.... boom!
