    Default 15th overall?

    This is NOT for the league in my signature but rather a sim league. For those less familiar with sim leagues, let's call this a full keeper league where each player's value is much closer to real life NHL value rather than fantasy value. So for purposes of this thread, ask yourself "which player would I rather my favorite team have?" (BTW, it's a 31 team league with 7 rounds in the draft, so every player drafted in the NHL gets drafted) Players drafted go into your "prospects bank" and you may activate them when they start playing in the AHL (we also have an AHL squad to manage).

    In the upcoming draft, I have the 15th overall pick and I'm hesitating on whom to pick. I've narrowed down my possibilities to Joel Farabee (who might be gone at 15 since he went 14 in real life), Grigori Denisenko (also might be gone), Rasmus Kupari and Dominik Bokk. Oh and maybe Jay O'Brien or Joe Veleno.

    So, which one of those 6 would you rather have on your team?

    If it helps any, here is my current prospects bank (I'm the new 31st team, so I've only had 1 draft, which explains why it looks a bit barren):

    C.Glass, T.Soderlund, U.Vaakanainen, I.Lodnia, K.Petruzelli, S.Reedy, M.Cairns, D.Smirnov, B.Maass, K.Roykas Marthinsen, J.Paquette

    I also own picks # 15, 30, 65, 92, 106, 118, 123, 128, 154, 156, 183 and 210 for what it's worth...

    I like the options you've listed but Ty Smith and Martin Kaut deserve some consideration as well.

    Is there one who sticks out more, or is it a "flip a coin and you'll be fine" scenario?

    BTW, thanks!

    I think Bokk and Kupari fall into that - I like them both, and they really cool names (in depth analysis).

    From the players you listed I'd rank the top few: Farabee, Bokk/Kupari, Veleno, Denisienko.

    Farabee and Denisenko if either of them is still there. After that, it becomes more of a flip a coin situation. I might actually go with Ty Smith for real-life purposes but Kaut, Kupari and Bokk are definitely solid options as well.
