With the first round of the 2020 NHL Draft getting underway on Tuesday night, Jared Book, Patrik Bexell, and Anton Rasegård sit down to discuss how they see the draft going, and the biggest storylines heading into this unprecedented Draft.

They start off by discussing players around the 16th spot where the Montreal Canadiens currently sit. Marc Bergevin has discussed trying to trade the pick, but if he keeps it which players could be taken?

How will some leagues starting play affect the draft, and will teams look differently at players who currently have no place to play?

Later in the draft, there are additional storylines and players potentially available. The Canadiens have made use of their additional draft combines in Europe and Quebec but this year with those not available, how will that change their process?
