  1. Yeah, I fully expected to have two picks in each of the first three rounds next season, instead we have our 1st, 2nd and four 3rd's. Not very happy with the outcome here at all...
  2. No, the top of the draft sucks, as in no elite players like McDavid, Matthews. The rest of the draft, aka 2nd round and later, is pretty standard. I'd take a 3rd in this years draft every time over a 3rd a year from now...
  3. You don't ACTUALLY think this do you? Nyquist isn't being traded today. I don't see him going anywhere, but IF he does, it'll be in the offseason, certainly not today...
  4. Why do people keep saying this? We should be going for as many picks for this year as we can, not next year, unless we're talking 1st rounders.
  5. Not t at all impressed with this trade. Should have been a much higher pick. With all the prices for rentals through the roof this year, we should have easily gotten a 1st for Vanek, 2nd at the very least...
  6. Wow... That's f***ing terrible...
  7. Yup, and Mark Stone is even better. There are late round steals since 2012 as well, just waiting to get their chance to prove themselves. Hopefully some were drafted by the Wings... I still think James De Haas could be a solid bottom 4 defenseman. Maybe Axel Holmstrom and / or Matthias Elfstrom develop into bottom 6 forwards. And that's just looking at the last two rounds...
  8. I don't think anyone is getting too excited about a 6th round pick. But a pick, no matter how late, is more valuable to the team going forward than another handful of games from Steve Ott... No, there aren't many steals in the late rounds, but there still are a few just about every year. Go back around 5 drafts (that's how long it takes these guys to develop) and you will see a few players drafted in the 5th-7th rounds that are decent to good NHLers today. And again, even a decent player 5 years from now is better than pointlessly holding onto an unrestricted free agent... 2012 Connor Brown (6th round, 156 overall) Linus Ullmark (6th round, 163 overall) 2011 Josh Manson (6th round, 160 overall) Jyrki jokipakka (7th round, 195 overall) Ryan Dzingel (7th round, 204 overall) Alexey Marchenko (7th round, 205 overall) Ondrèj Palat (7th round, 208 overall) Scott Wilson (7th round, 209 overall) 2010 Jesper Fast (6th round, 157 overall) Mark Stone (6th round, 178 overall) Frederik Andersen (7th round, 187 overall) Zach Trotman (7th round, 210 overall) No studs, but I'd take every one of them over a few games of any player...
  9. Vanek to Anaheim for Brandon Montour straight up. Get it done Kenny... or Shea Theadore... I'm not too picky...
  10. I think the Leafs got their guy when they traded for Boyle. No interest in Sheahan after that trade. Hoping Vrbata gets traded early today. Price for Vanek should sky rocket after he's off the board...
  11. Vanek isn't part of the future, and it shouldn't matter if he wants to re-sign this offseason or not, you still trade him to the highest bidder. If we make some moves this summer and we have 2-3 spots open up front, then we can talk about re-signing, but you still trade him today regardless.
  12. Good stuff Kenny. Can we get a 7th for Miller?
  13. Really Ken? Risking injury to your best trade chip, in an attempt to win this game tonight is the right decision for this team? I really hope he doesn't get injured, but man, what if... Imagine rolling the dice, risk losing a 1st and 2nd round pick because you thought it was that important to win this game tonight...
  14. I'm thinking they will call up Lashoff as the number 7. I wouldn't mind seeing Russo or Hicketts, but not at the expense of Sproul again...
