With the recent release of the 2019 NHL Draft Fantasy Rankings, brought to you by our big dogs, I thought I’d take some time on these ramblings to bring you my top 10.

 

  1. Jack Hughes

Obviously the number one guy here, don’t think I need to go into details.

 

  1. Kappo Kakko

He elevates everyone on his line, but can also beat you on his own. Not a bad consolation prize.

 

  1. Peyton Krebs

Krebs is light years above his teammates in Kootenay, and it is a shame because he could be a top pick if he had more skilled teammates. When everyone does a re-draft of this class five years down the road, Krebs will be in the top three.

 

  1. Dylan Cozens

Part of the triple S club (size, shot, skating). He contains all of the tools to become a number one center.

 

  1. Vasili Podkolzin

An all-around offensive threat, he can beat you with his playmaking skills or his shot. The reason I have him at five is because of the “Russian Factor”.

 

  1. Trevor Zegras

It helps that he plays with Jack Hughes, but Zegras is a great skater and is very creative on the ice. He can shoot and dish the puck, a perfect complimentary player on any team’s top six.

 

  1. Matt Boldy

Boldy carries a heavy and accurate shot and also the vision to make plays. Can also beat you one-on-one with his size and stick-handling abilities.

 

  1. Alex Turcotte

Has a high hockey IQ and is very patient wit
