<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>littlejerryseinfeld</b></div><div>neither kahun, nor cozens has played one minute of center in the NHL. I'd like to be good and not just repeat the grigorenko, leino, mittelstadt experience by jamming people where they dont belong or before they belong. i feel the cap is fine and thats before making any other moves, an eventual cap increase and the expansion draft.
you disagree, thats fine.</div></div>
Therefore, I wrote Kahun and Cozens last, although even in such a situation it will not be quite similar to Mittelstadt's. Casey had to play almost 2C, when we still had Berglund, Sobotka and all the other garbage in our team, he was thrown into the hell and he expectedly fell. In this situation, you have Eichel and Couture, who will eat most of the time, and the 3C role will be quite protected.
My only claim is that Kyle Turris is not what Buffalo needs in the role of 3C, in many ways.

I am firmly convinced that the value of the seventh overall pick in this draft is Tomas Hertl plus the Tampa Bay first or Max Domi and the Montreal second. The value of term cannot be overstated.
Look at where some star centermen were taken recently. Horvat at 9. Larkin at 15. Barzal somewhere in between (I recall 13 but I'm not interrupting this to go look.)
If the draft order stays the same (I.e., no one jumps ahead of you), you rate to get to choose between at least two and probably three of Rossi, Perfetti, Lundell and RW Holtz. Which would you rather have: one of those players under team control for 6 years, or two years of Tomas Hertl plus the appreciable chance that he'll walk after that and you'll have nothing?
There's no chance that happens with Domi because you can sign him long-term now -- IF he co-operates. But he's still a risk.
Many times, the best asset management isn't making the most beneficial move, but avoiding the really damaging bad move.</div></div>
Given our situation, I would prefer Max Domi with a slight plus. Although I like many of the players in this draft, we can’t wait any longer for the team to be in the playoffs for so many years, and the team captain is openly hinting that it’s time to strengthen and get into the playoff right now or I just leave in 1-2 seasons.
I like Hertl, but after an injury and he has only two years left under the contract, Domi can be locked for 5-6 years and you will always have a solid player for top 6.
