Talking Hockey Sense Episode 12: NHL Draft Lottery Special -- Q&A with Chris

Readers and listeners submitted their questions after the NHL Draft Lottery

It’s been an exciting week with the NHL Draft Lottery being drawn, so I wanted to make sure Talking Hockey Sense reflected that renewed excitement around the draft. Episode 12 is a little different with no guest, but I turned the podcast after to the listeners and the readers of this site to ask me anything about the 2021 NHL Draft.

I was almost overwhelmed by the number of questions I got through Twitter and email. There were also so many insightful, interesting questions that allowed me to cover a ton of different topics.

Among the questions answered in this week’s episode:

  • If Buffalo picks Owen Power No. 1, should they consider letting him go back to Michigan for another year?

  • Is there any chance Buffalo takes Matty Beniers? Does his injury at the World Championship affect his draft stock?

  • Is there any chance the Seattle Kraken pick a goaltender with the No. 2 pick?

  • Who are some of your favorite players in the USHL not in the NTDP or with the Chicago Steel?

  • Who are some players that could credibly go in the third round or later that you like?

  • There were also a lot of questions about specific players like Logan Stankoven, Matthew Coronato, Zachary L’Heureux, Jesper Wallstedt, Sebastian Cossa and many, many more.
