Man, some of these kids look 12 years old lol

 

Well they're closer to 12 than we are, that's for sure.


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Wasn't there just a thread where people complained we don't get enough home grown talent? Now people are complaining when we take a guy from Michigan who some are comparing to Ryan Kesler?

For the record, I like the pick.  But who's comparing him to Ryan Kesler?

I thought "Helm with Hands" was supposed to be Athanasiou on account of his speed...and, er...hands.

Stevie Y's really starting to establish himself as a legitimate GM in this league. The Bolts are going to be terrifyingly good in a few years. They could use this pick to get Dan Cleary and it wouldn't matter. So much great young talent in their system.

We can never have too many "Helm's with Hands" eventually one of them are going to actually turn out to be true.

I think the fact that his favorite team was the Maple Leafs is clear evidence that he's got terrible judgement and probably will be plagued by poor decision making his whole career. 

 

Hmmm...now that I think about it, does anybody know if Brendan Smith's favorite team growing up was the Maple Leafs?  lol.

I, for one, am just happy that we actually got someone well-ranked in this year's draft and not just some random name we've never even heard of, who would've gotten picked up by some team in the later rounds.

 

 

Oh, to top it off, he actually WANTS to play for Detroit. He mentioned it not long before the draft: http://www.freep.com...wings-nhl-draft

 

 

Welcome, Dylan Larkin! Looking forward to seeing what you got :)
