    He's a defenceman, so size is important. Defending is important.

    I'm sure he'll be fine in five years, not going to get much value out of that, though. By the time he's proficient, he'll be expensive. You can squeeze way more value from forwards imo.

    These forwards certainly. They are all very mature and tested. Problem is Vanc or Chicago likely grabs the last one. In which case, I don't want to reach.

    Any chance Merkley drops to pick 39?

    Possibly. I think he goes in the 2nd. Gravesy is betting he goes in the 1st.

    Super talented ahole. But he is a kid and I have no idea if he is salvageable (can grow past his problems) or a poison.

    I expect he does not gets past the Isles at 11, 12. I like him a notch below the top 5 defenders. No way he lasts to pick 26 dude.

    Pundits talking about depth of draft debating the top 50 to 55 are prospects, after that guess work. Others are saying almost the whole 2nd round is legit, then lotto. This is why I say we trade our thirds if a pick hungry team offers value or a trade up.

    Yeah, I love hearing about his skill level, but his defense supposedly sucks hairy balls. I'm not into drafting him in the first if there are forwards like Lundestrom, Olofsson, Noel, and so on still on the board.

    I hate reading the scouting reports. This seems like the deepest draft ever. Im looking at guys ranked in the 60+ range thinking that guys like Xavier Bouchard are sure things.. I bet years past drafts had similar highly touted kids that scouts over hyped.

    I'm hoping it goes like this, if they stand pat with the picks

    9- Tkachuk/Wahlstrom/Dobson
    26- Lundestrom/Olofsson
    28- Olofsson/Wise/Noel
    39- Merkley
    48- Bahl

    No matter who we get at 9, gonna be psyched. Never have I liked the top 10 players this much. Not a bad pick in the bunch. We get who's left. None of them are dicks either.

    Senators should have given up this pick. If they end up giving Jack Hughes to a playoff Avs team they'll regret it forever.

    Bode Wilde USNTDP 6'250 198 lbs RH has all ingredients, good edges, possession skills who creates threats and physical on D
    Rasmus Sandin OHL 5'11" 186 lbs LH skates the puck put of trouble at will, tough, skilled, doesn't really have a flaw

    No forward at #9 means centers would be great. Too much value in these 3.

    Ty Dellandrea OHL 6'0" 180 lbs scoring C, nice upside, solid D, had nobody in Flint, hard working and fast improving
    Isaac Lundestrom SHL 6'0" 183 lbs all around C, pvery smart sweede game. Best of dude's picks.
    Liam Foudy London OHL 6'0" 178 lbs C hoping to get at 39, but fast riser. Great athlete from family of athletes. Strong, fast, tenacious, had excellent second half, great attitude. Pressure speed player who can forecheck, cause havoc and score.

    39. Nils Lundkvist 5'11" 172 lbs skilled 2 way RHD (would prefer Foudy here)
    48. Jonny Tychonick 6'0" 177 lbs hard skating LHD. quick to the puck and likes to transition to O fast
    Have to be happy with Miller and Lundkvist, short write ups above.

    Usually I can't even predict my breakfast when I'm three cars out in the drive thru.

    Nice.
    Your healthy choice of waking up early enough to wait in the drive thru is countered by waking up early for the drive thru.

    You really think the Rangers would have even considered Merkley over Miller. Miller is gonna run that punk over when he's on his 3rd team in 2 years.

    And how about Tychonick going 48!?! Oh wait...

    Well I'm happy with all 3 picks. Like I said I didn't think Merkley would be available to us with the late picks anyway and to take him at 9 would be too much.
    I'm particularly happy with getting Miller with that late pick, excellent prospect with massive upside and he brings a physical edge, grit and speed we don't currently have.

    I do think that the Sharks have an incredible talent on their hands and if they can get his head right it'll be an absolute steal at such a late stage in the 1st round.

    Sometimes it is hard to find what you are looking for, on the site.

    I had Kravtsov, Hayton and Ty Smith just outside the top 10, which is why it is ridiculous to think we should've traded down to get him. The Isles or Dallas would have taken him and we'd been completely SOL.
