    Living in Charlotte I get to see the Checkers in the AHL, they have been fun to watch this year, quality play and a killer pipeline for Carolina .. I hope the Rangers dearth of draft picks leads to a real honest to God farm system.. It would be nice for a call up to be a prospect rather than a AAAA level player

    This guy is an interesting one to watch. We didn't hear much about him initially but he seemingly turned a corner this season and started racking up points. I think TwoMinutesForNothing (as usual) did a write-up regarding his stats and other players to have done what he's been doing in the Reunanen thread in the Farm System section of the Board.

    I genuinely have no idea what we have on our hands with this guy, but I'm excited to find out. Sounds like he deserves way more buzz than he's been getting.

    We have those high-end puck movers and OFD. I'm ready to bulk up on some guys that can just flat out play defense. I hope they go DFD in the #20 spot this draft and just keep adding to the stock pile of D we have now -- seemingly out of nowhere.

    I think the opposite. I'm still taking BPA no matter what but I'd be more inclined to go Center if everything else grades out equal. Especially if they draft Kakko.

    I'm assuming BPA at 20 is one of:

    Victor Soderstrom, D, Brynas (Swe.)
    Moritz Seider, D, Mannheim (Ger.)
    Thomas Harley, D, Mississauga (OHL)
    Ville Heinola, D, Lukko (Fin.)

    Generally, yes. BPA. I'm just hoping that's a big Dman.

    I agree, too many question marks upfront, and they have a good backlog of defensive prospects. There will be some highly skilled forwards at 20 that I’d take a risk on. There will be plenty of depth dmen in rounds 2, 3 and 4. None of the guys available at 20 have shown anything showing they can be #1D, and they develop so much later.

    Need smart picks, regardless

    My thought exactly. Jake Elmer, Patrick Newell, Joey Keane, Tarmo, and others are all new stories to watch down there. Still waiting on the coaching and management structure.

    I'm still optimistic about Lindgren's development. He doesn't give a shit about offense. When brought up to sink or swim, he swam. Didn't win any medals, but he's tough and committed and could get a lot better.

    I don't disagree. I liked his game. That being said, it doesn't hurt to have more than one stay at home d in the pipeline. We just don't have enough ice time for all these offensive dmen.

    Puck moving, offensive D are the way it’s trending now. But I agree. Need to mix in a couple stay at home, shut down type guys

    And is anyone in our system going to be a high-end two-way D?

    I don't think Hajek has shown nearly enough offense to call him a two-way dman. So I would also put him in the mostly D category.

    I wouldn't mind this guy for #20. Depends on what's there at 20 though. A center isn't a bad idea either.

    The #20 pick is really where all the thought is going to go. The #2 pick is a no brainer!

    I'm going to be kinda shocked if we pick at 20. I'm feeling as if we're moving off that pick.

    I'm throwing a theory out there that if Broberg is on the board at 13, we make a deal w/the Panthers to move up for him. Else, yeah, I could see Heinola/Seider.

    Seider strikes me as the classic "hey, this dude is rising fast and will go way higher than expected" guy though.
