    Question Who's the Better Points Only Own? Holloway, Amirov or Lapierre?

    For the second team in my sig, I've got a pickup left and might grab a prospect for next season (or as replacement if I trade one of mine away). Which of these three should I grab? Is there one of these three that should replace of of my current 5 minors keepers? Thanks! REP left as always.

    puerly based on upside i think Lapierre has highest ceiling ...however there are questions about his game and who knows if he makes it and at which level he plays when he does

    I think Holloway is the safest bed to get you something at NHL level but i be surprised if he is much more than 40-50 point guy

    Amirov is hardest to asses...we dont even know if he will cross and when just like may Russians..and if he is part of the leafs when he does it will be long way to get into the lineup, just look at Robertson.

    so personally since non of them are sure superstars, i would be shooting for highest upside which is Lapierre in my eyes.

    People put too much stock into Hendrix Lapierre's upside. Maybe I am wrong, but I don't see it. I would say many NHL teams agree, or else he wouldn't have fallen down in the draft because of the risk/reward nature leaning more-so towards the risk end... because, well, his injuries. The skill is there, but it's not just about skill. Durability is important and how one develops. Kid can't seem to catch a break, except for he does break a lot. Ba-da-dun! I am scared with all the important developmental time he's missed due to injuries. These are the most essential years for a young player. It defines whether you're a star-to-franchise player or just a good middle-six forward with offensive flare. A good comparison is Gabriel Vilardi. Granted he's missed more time than Gab, but the point is I think Vilardi's upside will be impacted due to the games he's missed. Also you're never the same after those injuries.

    Add to the fact he's not even the best player on his Junior team. That's reserved for Dawson Mercer who has 43 goals and 96 points over 65 games in his last 2 seasons. Mercer has better hands, better positioning, better tracking and understanding of the game on a 200-foot capacity, and is more durable and has no quit to his motor.

    Dylan Holloway is the correct answer here. The verdict going into the start of his Draft year was that he could possibly go top 3 because of his size and skillset. Unfortunately Wisconsin wasn't the program that many had thought they churn out because of namesakes such as Cole Caufield, Alex Turcotte, K'Andre Miller, Wyatt Kalynuk, and Holloway leading the charge. With Tony Granato as the head coach, returnees of Miller and Kalynuk and the new additions, they were expected to do much better than they did. Including Dylan, which is partly why he fell to the Oilers. Which lets be honest, can be both good for player and team. Despite his underwhelming freshman year, the upside was there. Moving along, he had a massive Draft +1 year, especially when he returned from the World Juniors. Don't sleep on this kid. He's going to be good.

    Rodion Amirov is the next best kid on this list. But I haven't paid enough attention to him, but all I know is that he's highly skilled, had a good WJC U20 showing, and many believe in his upside. I like the numbers. The only problem is finding room in the Leafs big top-six. That's still years away and lots can and will change.

    Going back to Lapierre, the good take away is how old the Caps team is (oldest in the NHL), and the available spots that might open up in a few years due to an aging core.

    I was looking through the waiver wire and came upon Phillip Tomasino - who Dobber has ranked quite a bit higher than the others I mentioned. Would you guys agree that Tomasino is a good pickup over Holloway, Amirov & Lapierre?

    Tomasino has the clearest path right now.

    In pts only for upside I'd go Tomasino > Amirov >> Lapierre > Holloway (who will be a multicat stud)

    Thanks guys! I only had one pickup left, so I used it on Tomasino. Now my plan is to trade away a few of my minors keepers over the off-season for pick upgrades in future years. Which ones should I make sure I keep (points only)? I've got 5 spots, and I own currently Newhook, Perfetti, Tomasino, Holtz, McMichael, Denisenko, Quinn, Turcotte & Swayman.
