Two Players Move Up On Craig Button's Draft List

from Craig Button of TSN,

With the 2020 NHL Draft finally getting under way on Tuesday, we take one last last look at Craig's List with a few changes in our final edition.

There are no adjustments to the Top 3, with Rimouski's Alexis Lafreniere, German centre Tim Stutzle and Sudbury Wolves centre Quinton Byfield leading off.

Erie Otters blueliner Jamie Drysdale moves up one spot to No. 4. Drysdale has all the makings of a No. 1 defenceman in the NHL and that gets the nod over a top-line left winger – which Saginaw forward Cole Perfetti (No. 5) will undoubtedly be.

Also moving up a spot to No. 6 is Russian netminder Yaroslav Askarov. His physical attributes, ability to read the play and composure will make him an elite No. 1 franchise goaltender like Carey Price.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
