Why are people so sure Columbus will do something amazing? I am happy for them but keep in mind this Kekkailinen guy doesn't know much about NA talents and Davidson is not going to run their draft. I am sure they will do fine but it may be to early for their new GM to do something amazing like moving into the top 10.
 
I really hope the Wings are going after to draft Gauthier or Bo Horvat just not sold on that Domi guy.


These guys aren't NA (minus Berglund)?

In 2002 Kekäläinen joined the St. Louis Blues as Assistant GM and Director of Amateur Scouting, where he helped draft much of the core of the team in the early 2010s, including defenseman Alex Pietrangelo and forwards T.J. Oshie, Patrik Berglund, David Perron, and David Backes.

"We have a trade to announce..."

 

Hate that little gerbil whenever he scurries up to say anything.

Pedophile is the word that jumps up when I see the creep.

Why has Flip's rights not been dealt yet? Maybe the demand for him is not as big as he thinks????? Flip swallows pride and signs for 3.2m

Pierre LeBrun @Real_ESPNLeBrun 3m

Blue Jackets very close on a new deal with goalie Sergei Bobrovsky...

 

Although Bob's sample size is a bit small, I think he is the real deal. If Columbus has any brains at all they give him a deal.

I'm not very familiar with him. What did he do wrong and what are his skills like?

http://www.youtube.c...h?v=DHby1n9ahxY He has a bit of a tude, but other than that a big body, great hands, not afraid to get in the nasty area's, and loves to hit.

I was thinking Rychel too.
Is there a live stream anywhere for the Draft?

Rychel is Cleary 2.0, and that is not the type of player we need. We need a PF, or a legitimate goal scorer. Not a gritty average sized borderline top 6 guy. If you want that style of player Ryan Hartman is a much better choice.

right only that he is listed at 5'11 185 (compared to Rychel's 6'1 200) and he scored 23 goals (Rychel's coming off consecutive 40 goal seasons). Now I know better than trusting a player profile but Rychel certainly strike me as the more intriguing player of the two...

Some news from Kenny:

 

David Pagnotta @TheFourthPeriod

Wings GM Ken Holland says he's talked to about 25 teams over the last few days.

 

Holland wants a top-2/top-3 defenseman, but they're "hard to find"

 

Holland also said he met with Lecavalier for half an hour. Lots of uncertainty over Vinny's future. Sounds too early in process right now.

 

Barring a significant turn of events, doesn't sound like Detroit trades Filppula's rights. Contract talks will continue.

Sure use a weight from last year. Hartman weighs 195 and they both project as secondary scoring with Hartman having more offensive potential according to many scouts. You missed my point, neither should be chosen in the 1st. We have plenty of secondary scoring. Mantha, Domi, Gauthier, or Zykov are all better options.

The Fourth Period is not the most reliable source out there.

Like I said, I looked at his profile, I know they are mabe not up to date and are sometimes overly generous. I dont think we have secondary scoring like Rychel. Mantha is projected to be picked long before the Red Wings will get a shot at him and if you want to add size, Domi is hardly the way to go.

Apparently Flip and his agent have said they will test the market so there is no market to trade his rights besides for a very late conditional pick we would never receive.

Please feel free to post about trades too.  I didn't make the thread just for draft talk.
