Mom's Basement Stakes

Explanation

I think this is a very interesting year for Sabres' fans. If you combine my valuations of 2016 and 2017 players, 2016 would take the top 5 spots, and 2017 would take the next 5 spots (more or less), therefore, the Sabres will be able to choose a better player at 8 (again) than Nylander, despite the general belief that this is a weak draft.

The rules are straight forward, submit a draft list for 2017, we'll see how you do against me, Bob McKenzie, Jason Botterill, and whomever else shows up, taking the picks that Botterill takes, you get the highest ranked player on your board, McKenzie gets the top ranked player on his board, me, the same. In some years I remove a player from the list if, say, McKenzie takes him before you, but I don't do that anymore.

In past years, I've been surprised by how much different my board is than the general consensus, but it's doubly so this year. I think this will be an exciting year for Mom's Basement Stakes.
