    Default 4th Overall Prospect Draft - REP

    G/A/PPP/Hits/SOG/PIM/FOW

    All 2018 eligible and undrafted 2017 that haven't played an NHL game are available.

    Assuming 1 - 3 are Dahlin, Zadina and Svech... who do I take at 4? Currently I am thinking Wahlstrom, but Tkachuk and R. Thomas (STL) are giving me pause. How would you rank these 3?

    I have a very young roster and am quite deep at C.

    I'm going with Tkachuk in a multi-cat setup like yours. Power winger looks like a nice fit for your squad.
    Tkachuk
    Wahlstrom
    Thomas (since you say you are stacked at C)

    I think I like Tkachuk as well. Then I'm teetering on the fence toward Whalstrom. Thomas would fall into 3rd for me (but all fairly close).

    Multi-cat set up does favour Tkachuck though as Glatt said.
    Team:
    2xC - Tavares, Matthews, Malkin, E. Staal, Namestnikov(C/LW)
    2xL - Hall, Landeskog,, Killorn
    2xR - Kucherov, Wheeler (RW/C), Marner (RW), R.Smith(LW/RW), T. Johnson (C/RW)
    4xD - Karlsson, OEL, Josi, Letang,
    2xG - Andersen, Jones, Dell, Mrazek, Bernier
    2xUtil - Malkin, Marner
    12 Team Keeper league with Yahoo

    Roster (14 Kept Players): 2C,2LW,2RW,4D,2G,2Util (Can keep a 3rd G with Util)
    SEASON SCORING: 3C,3LW,3RW,5D,1U,2G
    (Weighted Category Points: see below).

    Skaters -
    (Points: G a/o A) 6
    (+/-) 3
    (PIM) 1
    (PPP) 5
    (GWG) 5

    Wins 5
    Goals against -9
    Saves 1
    Shutout 10

    With SOG, I'd lean towards Wahlstrom. He'll give you more goals as well. Tkachuk gives more hits and PIM but I think those are easier to find elsewhere.

    On the other hand, Thomas is a really good option as well. I might put him between Wahlstrom and Tkachuk because of FOW.

    Tkachuk is gonna be a multicat beast. He'd be so dang tempting in that spot but I think I'd go Whalstrom. Elite goal scoring volume shooters are hard to come by and I think he's that. Tkachuck in that format, I think is the safest pick but if whalstrom lands in a place like Chicago look out. Thomas is the odd man out for me of the three.

    I just think the upside on Wahlstrom is worth passing periphs. at #4 - that's who I take

    Thanks for the responses. Was hoping it wouldn't be so split, but you guys are echoing my internal debate. Have been swapping Wahl and Tkachuk back and forth constantly

    I also own Matt Tkachuk so uniting the brothers would be amusing.

    I have repped who I can (need to spread it around).

    If you've bought Dobber's 2018 Fantasy Hockey Prospects Report and check out my Top 50 list, you can see that I'm pretty high on Kravtsov, Denisenko and Bokk.

    Obviously Ryan Merkley is the ultimate boom or bust option this year, though.

    Hey Juoko, I often look to your posts for advice. I have the Report and like usual, it is great. What Top 50 list is yours in the report?
    Thanks again for your opinions.
