    Makes very little difference imo.
    5-12 is much of a muchness and no guarantees at all.

    It was top 3 or nothing. We'll get a very good young player at #9 in this draft.

    I agree. We were never gonna be bad enough to be in the top 5. We also have a ton of picks and other assets so its not out of the question that we move up

    Pick a number 1-11

    With good scouting, we can build one of the best teams with this draft. 7 picks in the first 3 rounds can do wonders

    Pick a number 1-11

    Out of curiosity, who believes this whole draft system is rigged?

    If Carolina gets #1 then no. If Montreal gets #1 then yes.

    Do we have the assets to move to top 3 with Zuc and Anderson and Tampas pick? (I'm not good with these proposals)

    We had an over 50% chance to be 1,2,3, or 8. Instead we lost ground.

    Not rigged. Top 5 picks are fantastic, love to trade into it. Longshot. if Buf gets 3 or Ottawa or Arizona at 4 & 5. I'll take Bobby Ryan and send them a good pick or two to swap #4 and #9.

    At least at this point, there are 9 players who project to a top line or top pair prospect. Dobson and Bouchard may be bringing up the rear. They are 6'3 and 6'4" and still growing. Hardly the midget like Boqvist, but I'll take him over any dman outside of Dahlen.

    Yes it’s rigged. It’s always “struggling” teams (financially), 2 small market and 1 Canadian team in top picks.

    You can get a very good player in the 4th - we need a future game changer.

    This was expected. It's not like we had a 50% chance to move into top 3. It was always a crap shoot.

    Of course, but 4th was never on the table. My point is whether you're 8th or 9th isn't a huge deal.
    It'll be interesting to see if we trade up.

    From post 24 to the end, you’d think this was a GDT.

    Absolutely. System has been depleted of quality prospects for a while.. keep the picks and take as many quality guys as you can.

    Don’t want to be a conspiracy theorist but some how the results always seem staged.
