Locked On Sharks

Should Owen Power Go No. 1? Bailey Johnson Tells Us



Kyle and JD are joined by Bailey Johnson of Smaht Scouting and the Columbus Dispatch to talk about the overwhelming favorite for No. 1 pick in the draft, University of Michigan’s Owen Power. We dissect his statistical profile, why he would be a worthy No. 1 pick if the San Jose Sharks won the lottery. Then we get into what Power needs to work on (5:00), his strengths (9:00), and when he should/will make his NHL debut (14:00). We finish off by talking about some draft strategy (20:00), some talk about San Jose Sharks prospect Thomas Bordeleau (23:00), and our usual “blood” questions for the draft (26:00).

Wallstedt, for me, is probably the 1 player in this draft who could be a truly massive “difference maker” for the SJS. i’m also high… Read more »


I would want Beniers. We are thirsting for centers.
