As of today, we will have a 2nd round pick, which could be a young C that we need more of.

We are also picking 13th-bad bad number, in the draft.

Been a week or 2. Just a name for the second/third round. Now.....this is hard. Brendan Lemieux, 6-1/210 LH LW. Very good player. Plays big and physical. Scores goals and willing to go with anyone. Sounds good right? Well....... he is Claude's son. You know.......turtle man! Sins of the father?????

As of today we would have the 17th pick and lose our 2nd rounder to nashville-legwand trade.

Won't happen. I wouldn't be surprised if he is taken in the 1st by Colorado. We have a 1st and 3rd. McCann or Barbeshev in the 1st and Alexis Pepin in the 3rd.

So basically were trading down again to get back a pick

Would have been the best D pairing of all time. Vladdy would have been the yang to Nicks ying.


Kinda sad thinkin about what could of been


As for this years draft I think well just take the best player available as always but I think well look out for more centermen especially and defensemen

"What are you guys doing?" Reggie Dunlop
"Putting on the foil coach" Jeff Hanson
"Yeah, every game, you want some coach?" Steve Hanson
"Er, no. No thanks guys." Reggie Dunlop
"Make sure they don't leave the bench!" Reggie Dunlop.

Barclay Goodrow of North Bay...he's a free agent and has good size for a winger...too bad he shoots left

Goodrow isn't draft eligable anymore. There is a good chance he will sign with us as an undrafted FA. Was at our prospect camp last year and the RW have been keeping an eye on him.

Regular season is now over. We are drafting 16th if the draft is today. The only PO team with fewer points is the Stars. Depending on how we do we could end up no higher than 15th. 30th would  awesome! Not that I am holding my breath.......

I'd like Kempe at 15. We need a strong C prospect going forward. Already 6'2 187lbs. He would replace Jarnkrok in the system and be a bigger C to match with Sheahan in the future. The only way he could be a better fit would be if he was a RH player like Calle. 


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

We will trade down, if available, to gain a pick in the 2nd since we traded ours.

Opps. I forgot about NJ moving to 30th. As of today we would be 15th. The Stars would be 14th with NJ at 30th.

 

Kempe. he was rated higher earlier in the year. Starting to see him in the second in mocks-for whatever those are worth. However Tuch is consistently going between 15th and 20th. I firmly believe he would be the best pick for us as of today in the 1st. As mentioned before, he would be the big scoring wing on the second line, mantha filling the role on the top line. Looking forward 4/5 years how about these as your lines:

 

Mantha-AA-nastasuik

Nyquist-2015 1st rounder-Tuch

Jurco-Sheahan-tatar/Pulk

McKee-Glendening-Abby

 

Not a bad group at all. at least from a talent standpoint. half still need to be developed etc.... But from a pure God given talent stand point the group has everything you need. Size? yes. Speed? yes. Skill? yes. Smarts? yes. Strength? yes. RHers? yes LHers? yes. Good balance of ages as well. Abby would be the oldest 31/32 with the 2015 1st rounder being the youngest around 23.

Any guys you foresee being busts?

dirty, I really don't want us to take a Dman in the 1st. Would be a waste of a pick in my mind. We are still very thin at F in terms of prospects.

Draisaitl=bust... Hopefully we continue to look at forward. I would love for McCann or Barboshev to be there but latest mock drafts have them just ahead of 15. Perlini, Kempe, Vrana, or Ho-Sang would be good picks in that range...

Just add Helm and I like it.

I've heard a lot of places that Perlini will be a bust.

 

I really like Barbashev - is he a C or winger? I get mixed answers when I google him online. I think this team needs a little more Russian influence in it like the old days. 

 

Kempe seems like the wing's wet dream too - Swedish, big, strong, C - everything we can't resist.
