Some spot on picks tonight.

Brouwer to chicago for the 26th pick.

Error I mean Brouwer to Washington

Seventeenth Pick Habs select Nathan Beaulieu D

Predictable, they always prefer the French Canadians in MTL. Not a bad pick though.

Come on, why chant USA when someone speaks french... Classless.

Personally I was quite offended that he would speak in another language in the States. Why is that necessary?

I could see it if he needed a translator, but his English was quite good.

I could also see it if he was speaking to French people. Maybe he was. I don't know what he said.

At any rate, they got what they wanted. He looks like a promising Dman, and being a Francophone is a bonus for them. Makes the folks at home happy.

I dunno, perhaps it is because it is HIS language. The language of his fanbase, his city, his providence. :rolleyes:

Guys, how about Tomas Jurco at 24 ;)

Jurco and Morrow were the most common picks by the boards here... They both are extremely inconsistent.

Burns traded!!! to... SJ for Seto, Charlie Coyle and 28th pick going over as well. Three first for burns. We could have done that...

God damn it.

Eighteenth Pick Hawks select Mark McNeill C

I hope that the sign and trade hurts SJ in the future. Honestly I hope no one talks to them in UFA.

You can't tell me the Wings couldn't have offered a better package than that. Holland just got schooled by another GM.

Don't know if I'd say "schooled" but he'd better have something good up his sleeve with LA, SJ and C-bus all getting better and taking chances and we're still standing around watching.

Sign and trades are apart of the cap game. You see it in the NBA all the time.

Well there are a LOT of people there from other countries. I see they grasp the concept of speaking the language of his current national origin quite well if he is capable.
