minnesota draft review

2019-07-30

so finally i also have time to write my review    this year the wild selected to defenders  and both are 100 percent boom or bust picks                                                                                                                                                                                        27 th pick overall OLIWER KASKI   man this guy guy had a phenomenal season   kaski 23  was best defender in the finnish liiga which is one of the top leagues in europe he also was part of the finnish team that won gold at the wc later this spring   kaski has good size and he looks to be a good offensive defender he should not have much problems with the smaller rinks in na cause he played juniors  overseas   the wild selected this guy cause they see a lot potential being him  even being on the wilds top pairing within the next years  and like written even oliwer is 23 already he should still get better and make an impact in real already this year for the wings maybe  only risk is the wings were not playing that well the last years but on the other hand they are one franchise who always had lot luck drafting players in higher rounds  and lot from sandinavia too zetter the mulle franzen and so on   so we wish oliwer a great time in our sytem and see good times ahead with this guy                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        58th overall ANTONNI HONKA    honka hmm someone might know this name   yes right his brother julius  was a highly promising prospect for the dallas stars but is stuggling the last 2 years to get his tools together   but nontehless the wild trust theis scouts and they maybe find a steal picking antonni   he is not that big body as kaski is but alos have the potential becoming a very good offensive defender  in real the hurricanes picked this guy in this years draft  honka is still only 18 burt already played nearly 50 games in finnish liiga which is a mens league  just in fact he also was in the world junior champs the last years  and this pick could be oskari laaksonen 2.0 whom the wild picked 2017 and who looks to be a very good pick  all in all this guy really looks to be boom or bust no between just our scouts siad they watched him many times he even has more talent than his brother julius and its up to antonni  to get the max out of that  but we also trust him to do that and wish him all the best in the wild system       so tahts it 2 picks and 100 percent risky ones  we will see the next years if it was a good choice   ok for now   have a good time all the others enjoy summer see u harald

Nicely done sir! Will be keeping an eye out on Honka myself since he is a Canes prospect too. :)

Love the Honka pick. He's a huge risk, but I am a big fan of swinging for the fences at the draft.
