My Playoff Draft List is updated completely. Fully customizable, instant download, complete with notes – and even a sheet with my own personal picks if you’d rather go with those. Thanks for supporting the site. If you bought the draft list and can’t figure out how to enable macros or have a question about my list – I explain much right here.  (I’ve been getting the same questions from a few people)

Per Russo – Jason Pominville will not play in Game 1 for the Wild. The draft list has been updated accordingly. I also sorted my personal picks by team, isntead of by projected points. I think you will appreciate that more. So go ahead and re-download the draft list.

The Avalanche won the draft lottery and will be picking first overall. It’s obviously going to be Seth Jones, seeing as he’s a Colorado native and is ranked No.1 by most scouts. Will he play right away? Yes. Most first overall picks play right away. He’ll join fellow first overall pick Erik Johnson on the blue line, where he can be reminded that there are no guarantees being top pick.

So the Avs will boast Erik Johnson, Seth Jones, Tyson Barrie, Stefan Elliott and Duncan Siemens. That looked better a year ago, than it does today. I don’t think Jones and a new coach is the quick fix. On the right track, but not the full solution.

Still with the Avs, Adrian
