Grading a teams draft is total B.S. I'm sure people thought we were crazy for taking a small forward from Russia and a small forward from Sweden in the late rounds and I think turned out pretty well. If Mantha becomes a star and any other pick even makes the team I'm happy.

 

But those were later picks.  In later rounds, things become even harder to predict.  

 

Earlier round picks are more scrutinized, hence Holland is getting some criticism with the guys he chose after Mantha.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

They can scrutinize all they want but no one knows what is going to happen with the future of these kids. We might sit back five years from now and celebrate this draft. Holland know there are roles we need filled moving to the Eastern Conference and maybe Bertuzzi was the number one guy they thought could fill the role of agitator. You can't win a championship by just trying to draft only superstars.

Ya well some of these big name players taken this year in the top ten probably won't even see much nhl time in their career, and some unknown guy will be a star. That's just the way she goes

People need to remember that we basically got Bertuzzi for free.... Obviously a pick they wanted, so they took him a little early and guaranteed picking him up. Is supposed to be a nasty aggitator

 My money is obviously on Hampus Melen.  Now THAT is a household name!  I'm not jumping on the bandwagon on this one, I'm pulling it, which is fine cause it's not heavy.

I see Halifax has 2 of the top 12 picks in the import draft...might be able to replace McKinnon and Drouin quicker

I thought of making a twitter account just to follow Dats and Daniel Tosh, but I may have to still consider making one and following old Hampus.  He seems entertaining.

Good ol' hampusaurus rex. Haha I actually originally made a Twitter because of tosh.0 but now I just like it. It grows on you for sure

Good GOD I hope this Hampus kid doesn't flare out with a pffftt because I'm REALLY stoked about the future possibilities of using his name repeatedly to describe random stuff...

The hands on Jonathon Drouin are just filthy - just watched a video of him on YouTube and looked over his stats from the past year and he's got that "man playing against boys" vibe to him...

Lightning are lucky to have him, and I predict he will do big things for them (as well as being a regular on the highlight reels)
