So all of a sudden everyone remembered Andrei Svechnikov is a person who exists and he's now the undisputed consensus #2, I guess:

https://www.nhl.com/news/2018-nhl-mock-draft-final-rasmus-dahlin-no-1/c-299112416?tid=277764372

The consensus 3-10 pool is more or less set, but there is zero frking agreement re: order.

Assuming he meant to have MTL and ARI switch places, I could see all of that happening. As much as I want one of the D, I'd be thrilled if it did.

Good point. Chiarelli, Snow, Bergevin, any other "bad" GM...still no one trading top-10s for whatever pile of middling assets.

Pipe. Dream.

Sometimes it's fun to discuss pipe dreams...

What's SOP this year?

If Zadina falls to 6th, but we take one of the Dmen, do we frigout?

No.

If all of the Dmen are available, but we take Wahlstrom, do we lose our beans?

No.

If we take Noel Serron do we all suicide pact?

Yes.

That's where I'm at as well.

Word. Getting Zadina without having to trade up would be absolutely amazeballs.

Get Zadina and Karlsson and we might be able to bypass a rebuild entirely.

One of the shows had said that the surrgance of the D-men in the draft may really impact where Tkachuk and Zadina fall. I think if Zadina is there at #6, and if he truly is the most elite scorer in the draft, we have to take him. But honestly, if Bouchard and Dobson are taken in the top 5 and Zadina/Wahlstrom are available, it doesn't matter which one we take, both are legit upgrades to our top 6. If we draft O at #6 and, as some analysts have said could happen, Boqvist falls into the teens, it would be nice to trade up to get him.

Zadina may fall because Montreal will probably fail to make a deal and draft Kotkamiemi at #3 because of their need for a center.

Dahlin

Svech

Kotkaniemi

Tkachuck

Boqvist

Zadina

it's quite possible.

Serron Noel would be awesome if we could get a 20-ish pick or if he's there at 30.

I did too.  I hate how politics has crept into everything.

Lucky for you, that doesn't happen here.

Who coined "amazeballs" and why do they hate humanity?

www.slate.com/.../who_coined_amazeballs_and_why_do_they_hate_humanity.html
Dec 27, 2012 - In November of this year, amazeballs racked up a more dubious honor. It was added to the Dictionary of the Most Annoying Words in the English Language, where it was defined as “an exclamation inviting someone to hit you.”

If the draft goes as follows, who do the wings take. Bouchard, Tkachuk? 

1) Dalhin 

2) Svech 

3) Kotkeniemi 

4) Hughes

5) Zadina

6)???

 

Bouchard. If Z 2.0 is gone, you gotta go D.

What do u have against truculence and gumption?

Those are just words that people use when "skill" doesn't apply. It's the hockey equivalent of "she has a nice personality".

I’m happy with any of the possibilities besides Tkuchuk. He’s the only practical pick that would really bother me

I look at him as a potential 30 plus goal scorer (sumthin this team hasn't had in a few plus years), and as CRL rightfully pointed out - a kid with a chip on his shoulders that gets the fans outta their seats (also sumthin that this team hasn't had in a few plus years) courtesy of his chippy play.

All this said - I'd be shocked if he was available when the Wings draft, and even more shocked if the Wings were to pass on him.

Then again - I have a 'soft spot' for 80's/90's era power forward types.

Id MUCH rather watch a losing Wings team with a Tkachuk type on it

Hell id much rather watch a winning Wings team with a Tkachuk on it

And you dont have to play like soft baby s*** in order to be good

dobson or whalstrom .... like the fact that dobson can play all facets of the game and log a ton of ice time and has the size (he'll bulk up)

also like whalstrom more i think of it , can see him playing with larkin, see him as a future first line player 30-40 goal guy and dont know if we can pass that up

future top 2 line wingers can be mantha,rasmussen,whalstrom and svechnikov ... looks pretty good
