MUNICH, Germany — Coming to you live from my hotel room on a beautiful afternoon in Munich, I spent an hour and a half answering the many questions for Hockey Sense readers and Talking Hockey Sense listeners about a variety of topics. This week’s episode spends a ton of time on the 2022 NHL Draft with a special focus on the Men’s World U18 Championship that I’m currently covering for Hockey Sense and DailyFaceoff.com.

I got a ton of questions that cover a whole bunch of topics, but here’s a brief summary of some of the things we cover.

  • Isaac Howard’s season and draft stock amid this impressive tournament to date.

  • Adam Fantilli, Connor Bedard and Matvei Michkov, who would be No. 1 right now?

  • How this U.S. team stacks up to others historically after a hot start to the U18MWC.

  • Comps for Logan Cooley and Simon Nemec. Plus Lane Hutson’s chances to go in the first round.

  • What would a Top 10 look like if you combined the 2021 and 2022 drafts?

  • What will happen to the Russian and Belarusian prospects in this draft?

  • Thoughts on Dryden McKay signing with the Marlies

  • Assessing Quinton Byfield’s rookie year.

  • A whole bunch more.
