    None of these kids scream "banger" so that really wont play in much here for me.

    I would go with Lindstrom as I feel he has the best tool kit in this group but his injury past does seem a tad concerning. Iginla would be my 2nd choice. I am not taking a D here.

    Wow really hey? I was heavily leaning on Catton but Parekh is very tempting. Lindstrom has the best multicat potential at least I think so. But there are so many guys who are sour on his ceiling being only around 60-70 points. Thanks for the advice definitely causing me to rethink it a bit.

    Honestly, until we see where these kids end up in the actual NHL draft, we are basing our information off scouting reports for the most part. I am a fan of Lindstrom clearly but I can appreciate why you like Catton as well.

    Nope youíre 100% right about that. Iíve heard some guys think Catton will slip to 9-10 which doesnít resonate with me. Itís a tough choice having such a high pick because if I get it wrong itís a wasted asset.

    Depends on positional allocation:
    Lindstrom or Iginla, for me, if quality Fs are most important. From what I've read/seen, Lindstrom first.
    Buium, for me, if a quality D has big importance.

    I don't think Catton or Parekh are going to be multi-cat dynamos, personally.

    All speculation at this point for sure but from what I can gather Lindstrom is perhaps the best option for multi cat leagues if indeed that is what you are looking for. I have to say, if he produces the hits and PIM and SOG and puts up 60 - 70 pts, well that's a very nice banger IMO. Guys like Brady Tkachuk are big time few and far between and being sour on a big bodied physical prospect who projects at 70 pts doesn't make much sense to me if you feel the player will bring the physical game to the NHL level. Again, it sounds like Lindstrom could well be that kind of prospect.

    Banger? The only one that qualifies is Lindstrom (big power forward). Tij isn't physical in that way. He's not his father and never takes penalties. Buium, maybe as he has some size. Parehk and Catton as good as they are don't qualify as bangers. If I'm picking in a pts league with hits, I'm probably taking Lindstrom, but Parehk based on pts and position may be worth more (in my leagues due to position).

    Wow Iím shocked Lindstrom is the consensus. But let me turn the tables would it not be better to reach for pure upside as in a Parekh or Catton? And again no guarantees who stays until 5. But I find in such deep leagues upside is king and I donít see Lindstrom as a TkachukÖheís probably closest to it in this draft and I was low on both Tkachuks in their respective draft years and both have made me look like an idiot (to myself thankfully lol). Man a whole new layer has been added to this. Lots to think about. The other forum I asked a similar question and Parekh was the consensus. Not making this easy guys haha!!

    To be clear, most replies reflect your league stats. If I'm drafting 5th and he's available (points only), I'm taking the risk on Parekh. I suspect most if not all drafts will go #1 Cellibrini, #2 Demidov #3 Parekh.

    I agree with this^^

    I think a lot of people were just sort of clarifying that if there's a guy with an edge in BASH leagues Moreso than giving a full ranking....

    If you want a BASH player this year- you draft Leshunov and hope he ends up in Chicago...
    If you have any questions around prospects or young players that are still developing thats where my focus has been lately and always love chatting about them. Feel free to hit me up.
