    Default Thinking about next year ..... Drafting Michkov at #1?

    So I am in the middle of growing pains right now .....

    I own the 1st over all pick in our upcoming draft in Sept. (League Scoring Cats in Sig) We are a 14 Team / Keep 5 League.

    As of right now my Keepers are:

    Bedard (was able to snag him last year at #2 overall)
    Draisaitl
    Stutzle
    Bratt
    Zegras

    I need goalie help in the worse possible way. Not sure what will happen in Seattle with Daccord. I also had the Sens duo. In our League Goalie Cats are paramount and goalies usually are drafted in RD 1 & 2. Most GM's keep 1 goalie. Some have kept 2 and there has been 1 outlier who kept 3. I could expose Zegras and keep Daccord. Or I keep both Bratt / Zegras ...draft Michkov and then trade both Bratt and Zegras for goalies.

    Here is my real question .... Would it be out of this world to draft Michkov with my #1 pick overall? It has been reported that he will be let out of his KHL contract and should be with the Flyers come Sept. That would then free up Bratt whom I could flip for a legit goalie.

    Is that reasonable? Just mulling over some options as it is summer and I am bored. With the news of Michkov it made me to take a quick look at what I might want to do when we declare our Keepers in the 2nd Week of Sept. (Still a long way off ... I know)

    Moving forward my core 4 would be Draisaitl / Bedard / Stutzle / Michkov / #5 TBD (goalie?)

    Appreciate any thoughts as most of us suffer through this heat wave.

    Thanks

    Agree that we need to know who else is available, also, are there better options for Zegras as your fifth keeper? He sticks out as there being a gap between him and the other four.

    I won't know who else is available until everyone else declares their Keepers .....as I mentioned..that won't happen until Sept. at the earliest. Looking at everyone's rosters and making educated guess who they "might" keep and who "might" be exposed ... I see potentially exposed players ...

    K. Connor
    Matt Boldy
    R. Dahlin
    M. Heiskaned
    S. Reinhart
    M. Nescas
    K. Kreider
    A. Svechnikov

    Again all the above are educated guess on who might be exposed ......

    As regard to the other question regarding my Keepers .... if not Zegras then either T. Foerster / J. Huberdeau / Tarasenko / T. Terry ....that's it

    Appreciate the quick responses ....

    I would offer a 2nd round pick for Dahlin and keep him over Zegras, and then draft most of the guys over Michkov. And then short-bench yourself drafting 4-5 goalies mid/late draft.

    players likes of Connor, Dahlin, Boldy should be gobbled up before the likes of Michkov. You start five D if I'm reading that correctly so you need a strong pillar to anchor that group. If Rasmus there gotta take that gift.

    Personally I’d would be looking into acquiring Dahlin prior to your Keeper declaration if you’re allowed trades. Then keep Dahlin over Zegras.

    I love Michkov and think there's a 100 point player there. That being said, the specter of Torts year one is frightening. Go with Dahlin Boldy or Heiskanen and get a proven and still growing asset before committing to Michkov. Michkov's value seems very likely to be lower on June 24, 2025 than it is today.

    I think a lot of people are curious of other guys from that class and even this one are available? Fantilli, Leo, Celebrini?

    In answer to your question- no Michkov would not be a bad grab. If Dahlin is available thats about the only guy I'd pass on MM for... if you're in a long painful rebuild do NOT pass for guys like Conno- Imma huge Boldy fan but if I was offered Boldy for Michkov I'd be learning Russian obscenities just so I could set him straight in every relevant language!! Not trying to be rude to anyone here- I'm just saying that if its a tear ot to the studs rebuild you might as well just pull the band aid off...
    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.

    Thanks for all the reply's ..... gives me a lot to think about.

    In answer to everyone's question ....no... our League does NOT allow pre-draft deals/trades. That would be a unique aspect though. Will bring it up to our League Commish.

    We start 3 D-men. Dahlin is definitely a target ....

    Our league opens trading about a week prior to our draft which is a slow draft.
    Not much time to get a trade done. Trades still occur though.
