    Pretty happy overall.
    Three excellent prospects for a org needing it.

    Great picks for a team that is still in rebuilding. Kravtsov can skate, just not as good as Hughes (Drew a Penalty). K'andre Miller and Lundkvist to build up what was a terrible and injury-riddled defense

    I took an over critical look at Dmen after Ty Smith, for our 26 and 28 picks. There were really only 4 (maybe 5) players that stood out as good bets to be top 4 Dmen who could skate. And Bode Wilde had other issues.

    I think we got the best lefty and righty. Though I dig Sandin too. These later firsts are key and we scored.

    If you need to feel a little better about Kravtsov, go back and listen to the HockeyProspect.com podcast. They had him rated #6 overall (though nobody else was close to that). The superlatives come fast and furiously. Put it on repeat until the pain goes away.

    Hmmm.
    Expect the actual experts are also questioning the pick.

    But then we says they're shitty experts because they don't like the pick.

    So really the only real experts are the ones that agree with the internet experts.

    Solid enough to me.
    Glad we drafted a scoring forward ... because NYR (which shed some point-productive players during the last year, Nash, Stepan, Grabner, Miller however frustrating each might have been ) has been having trouble finishing in what is now an even more offense-oriented league that is was, at least in the regular season.
    While I was hoping for Wahlstrom, I'm still excited by Kravstov.
    Where I am a bit dumbfounded is the next slew of picks featured only 1 forward and 58 defensemen.
    OK so we were shyte in that department, but we recently added, Rykov, Lindgren, Pionk, Hajek, and we get Shattenkirk back from injury, so I thought we'd add more forwards.
    It is what it is.
    If n ya gots jowls, they might as well be furry ones.

    It’s cool, it’s looking more and more like we are poised to draft Hughes next draft. That is before we take the 46th ranked guy with our first over all pick (sorry I had to).

    Link to an expert calling it a reach, a poor or questionable pick or going off the board please? Not saying they don't exist, I just haven't seen them.

    McKenzie had Kravtsov at 12 and the only forward between he and Wahlstrom was Barrett Hayton, taken 5th overall by Arizona.

    So for one of the most respected men in hockey, Wahlstrom and Kravtsov were right next to each other as far as forwards and only 3 picks apart. This wasn't a reach like taking someone ranked 18th overall in the 7th spot. It wasn't even the reach that Arizona made for Hayton because they wanted a center.

    This was simply a matter of preference between two very similar in value prospects.

    Sure.

    Unless we look at Wahlstrom who was highly rated all year vs a guy who flew up the ranks because of a hot playoff.

    Whalstrom dominated his peers as an 18 year old. Kravtsov flew up the rank because of success against the better teams of grown men in the KHL playoffs. He had already had success against players his own age when he was 17. I suspect if he stayed in the lower ranks in Russia he'd have been similarly as dominate.

    I think the FO thought Wahlstrom would be off the boards when we were to make the pick, so they scouted the next best available winger (Kravstov) and fell in love with him.

    I’ll hold judgement on this pick for a couple of years.

    I believe the exact words after he was drafted were something like “this pick isn’t entirely off the boards”...

    I think they were surprised we didn’t go Wahlstrom but then they had nothing but good things to say about Krav.
