Now I say the hell with it and take Rocco.

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

Well compared to Chara all defensemen are small.

This Oleksiak kid is a bit closer, wouldn't you say?

Fourteenth Pick Stars select Jaime Oleksiak D

This is why I hate to say things out loud... the universe can smite me quite often.


Alright, how about this, roll off your next best 5 regardless of position you'd like to see the Wings take? Surely one of them will drop to 24.

I think Chara has 3 inches on him. But that kid could still grow.

I think Conner Murphy D is someone we might look at.

Fifteenth Pick Rangers select J.T. Miller C

Or they will all be taken in a row! haha.

Seriously, I know it wouldn't be popular but Rocco Grimaldi would be a solid pick. Small but amazing. It would be like stealing a top 4 pick in terms of talent. Sounds like a Ken Holland move. The Defense is getting thinned out, all the major Dmen left have big question marks. I like Conner Murphy there, as he is our type of guy and has good size, biggest fault is he was seriously injured. I can forgive that.

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:

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