    Default Petan or Connor Murphy

    Trying to pick my last player in my prospect draft. I have a lack of D prospects (Vatanen and Krug) but is petan too good to pass up?

    Our league allows players under 50 games played to be prospect eligible, and can stay as prospects for 5 years.

    Who would you take? Team in sig

    Thx!

    You may have a lack of prospect D, but with Subban, Doughty and surer, theres no issue for 5 years there. Shattenkirk is a tier below but very solid, Krug and Vatanen look to be pretty decent players. I'd swing for the fences and snag Petan.

    Thanks for all your insight Pete!

    Any other opinions out there?

    I assume given your prospect rules that Krug and Coyle become active next season? Petan is one of those high risk/ high reward players. If he can translate what he has done at Portland to the NHL level he'll be the next MSL. If he can't, he'll be the next Shremp.

    Doesn't have to be the next MSL to be a successful hockey player

    Other recent undersized guys I can think of that threw up 100 points in the WHL are Tyler Johnson and Brandon Kozun. One is an AHL regular, one could slot in beside one of the best goal scorers of the decade. I think Petan is worth the risk given the circumstances.

    I think Connor Murphy is going to bust out this year, perhaps playing a majority of the season alongside OEL at evens. This kid has some real talent offensively, and he is going to contribute to your peripheral categories very well. Dobber has him projected for 32 points, 60 PIM, 90 Blks, 100 Hits. That's pretty solid production from your 5-6-7 Dman in fantasy hockey, and I'd prefer that over Petan's outside shot of making the team in the next couple years (size). Give me Murphy if you're a "win-now" team.

    I can actually keep them in my prospect pool as long as I want (up to 4 more years since I drafted them last year). I agree that petan has much more risk, but do I need the Dmen with who I have?

    Thanks guys...couldn't make up my mind so I traded the guy after me (who had the last pick of the draft in the 7th round) for my 6th round pick next year and took both!

    Enjoy! I'm rooting for Petan, but he has a long road ahead of him. Murphy is a much safer pick for sure.
