Everyone should move up. Or they should just skip arizonas pick or something.

It’s pretty easy around here. The worst part is most of the people responding are veterans lol.

Just saw there’s a player in this years draft named Gunnarwolfe Fontaine. WANT!

I believe he was a member of the Icelandic powerhouse team that eventually fell to Gordon Bombay's Team USA in the junior Olympics final.

I think this is pretty standard. I'd assume they're having multiple meetings / interviews with at least half a dozen guys in their range. I would hope they're having as many video chats with Stutzle and Raymond...

Especially before this draft when these kids havent played hockey in 6 months.

Raymond has 4 goals in 5 preseason SEL games. 

So many good players to pick from at 4. 

I think I'd rather be Ottawa then NYR heading into this draft.

For sure. As great as Lafreniere will be, I'd rather have two of Byfield / Stutzle and Raymond / Rossi / Drysdale.

Ottawa should make out like bandits in this draft...

Perfetti would be a big mistake. Many better players will be on the board. Really hoping Yzerman isnt giving this kid the character exception bull s***. This is too important of a pick for that. 

Brutal mistake , i blame chris osgood for not just sticking with his s***ty hockey takes on tv and being co owner of saginaw . Hopefully hakan andersson really gets in yzerman’s ear , cant imagine he’s not excited about the potential of drafting raymond after years and years drafting in the 20s and trading firsts away

It's hilarious that you think the only reason Perfetti is getting 4th overall consideration, is because of Osgood / Devellano. Yzerman is not going to draft a player just because he plays for the team co-owned by a couple of his buddies. Whether you want to admit it or not, Perfetti and "the smurf" Rossi have the potential to be top tier, elite NHL players. Neither would be my first pick, and I'm with you in wanting one of Stutzle or Raymond, but they certainly wouldn't be bad picks.

If anyone was drafting 4th would we relentlessly be seeing articles anout perfetti at 4? No .. so f*** him and f*** chris osgood lol .... and ill admit to rossi being a smurf and being knocked around in the playoffs which is all i care about, i want cups not participation ribbons and smurfs dont usually excel in the post season so big time pass for me

I’d have no problem with drysdale but we have a ton of good young d prospects + we should have a good shot at one next year so pass for me its not even a question that we should be taking lucas raymond , if he had played more minutes i would say we wouldnt even have a shot at him and he’d be a top 3 pick

so for me if someone doesnt see that and he drops to us at 4 , amazing ... if not then that means our pick is stutzle or byfield which is unlikely but also good  ... anyone elseee i see as a potential pick by yzerman as much as people would hate it is askarov 

You look at how good our division is and how many teams have top notch prospects coming yzerman might be thinking the best way to beat them is building a strong d and goaltending which as much as id love raymond i wouldnt be able to argue with that outtake

Point being f*** rossi ... and definetly f*** cole perfetti .... with the 4th pick we’re taking raymond/stutzle/byfield/askarov .... you dont like my take too bad so sad

Yeah, Brayden "the smurf" Point is really getting knocked around in the playoffs... If only he were a little taller... Hopefully he gets the Lightning a Cup, and not just a participation ribbon... The 5"10", 165lb center is the driving force in the Bolts playoff run, and a huge reason they're likely headed to the Stanley Cup Finals...

You're such an angry individual, and all of the passive aggressive "lol"s in the world, doesn't change that...

You can have a favorite player without hating on every other player, when in all likelihood you haven't even seen any of them play live. You read a couple articles and watch a few highlight videos, or maybe even more accurate for you, read their bio, and you're an expert...

But yeah, f*** Perfetti, and f*** Osgood for being part of the team that Perfetti plays for...

Isnt point taller ? And correct me if im wrong but isnt he injured? Missing games in the playoffs ? Smurfs get knocked out . Yes if tampa wins the cup itll be only cause of point and not kucheov,hedman,vasilevsky etc... get real 

cool you mention brayden point like there’s a ton of 5’9 forwards dominating the post season every year ... most dissapear , you want to waste a #4 pick on a 5’9 good for you , id rather not ... surprise surprise difference of opinion once again which is fine by me

Like you pretending to watch every single griffins game and making yourself out to be an expert about every redwings prospects ? The f*** outta here with your bs 

And again perfetti  would not be talked about constantly at 4 if it were another team picking ... again you got your take and i got mine ... this was nice

5'10", 165lbs, 24 years old vs. 5'9", 185lbs, 18 years old. What matters more? The one inch or 20lbs? Yup, because I said "only because of Point"... Of course others have been contributors, but if Tampa wins the Cup, Point will absolutely be in the running for the Conn Smythe.

No, I didn't mention Point like there's a ton of small forwards dominating the post season every year. I mentioned Point because small skilled forwards can dominate the post season every year.

What the f*** are you talking about? I never said I wanted Rossi at 4. In fact, I said I agree with you on wanting one of Stutzle or Raymond. I simply said he's an option, and Yzerman should be exploring every option.

I'm not as high on Rossi either, but to call him a "smurf" and say "f*** him", "f*** this", "f*** that", just because you're upset that Yzerman may be considering him, is f***ed up...

For about two or three seasons straight I watched about 60 or so Griffins games. That was like 5 years ago. Since then, I've probably only watched 60 or so games total. I haven't been able to watch near as much as I once was. But yeah, this is all just a giant ruse to make a bunch of random people on a hockey forum think I'm cool...

Picking Perfetti, as I've said before, is 2000s Oilers type bafoonery.  Is he a legit prospect sure... but if the tipping point is a connection to the state and a connection to a former teammate and not something in his game, then we're doomed.

I'd like one of Stuzle, Byfield (if available) or if not Rossi, Drysdale, Raymond.

A pro coach I know personally raved about Rossi.
