Unreal draft for Montreal so far.

Undertakerqc 06-23-2012 09:24 AM

I really liked his game at the prospect game. Rugged SOB. Timmins is a boss. Really happy with both second round draft pick.

This is unreal. Wow.

Chris Pronger 06-23-2012 09:27 AM

in before RDS hating on Bergevin because no Quebecers were picked.

LyricalLyricist 06-23-2012 09:27 AM

I heard his name a lot but didn't get a chance to follow draft as much this year. What type of player is he and whats his upside?

getyourselfsomerest 06-23-2012 09:28 AM

Leafs fan here, out of the teams that didn't make a trade, you won the draft......

Chris Pronger 06-23-2012 09:29 AM



WOW

Madevilz 06-23-2012 09:29 AM

Thrower and Dietz will both be playing on the blueline for Saskatoon next season, who host the Memorial Cup, can't wait.

MXD 06-23-2012 09:32 AM

Excellent!!!!

Undertakerqc 06-23-2012 09:33 AM

I will bet you two Quebecers will be drafted in the late rounds.

All round defensman with good offensive upside, he's also a fantastic fighter.

macavoy 06-23-2012 09:35 AM

If Thrower was projected to go late in the 1st round, why did he fall, especially when you consider the popularity of dman in this draft?

The Blades selected Thrower with the 30th overall pick in the 2008 bantam draft. Known for his offensive skills, Thrower scored the overtime winner in the B.C. midget AAA championship series for the Northwest Vancouver Giants.
Nice story on his way up and the battles he faced.

MXD 06-23-2012 09:38 AM

My favorite pick so far. And that includes the Galchenyuk pick.

NHL feed: THROWER is being interviewed as I type this!!

Edit: He said he just modeled his game after Bieksa which is the type of D we need.

Mats86 06-23-2012 09:43 AM

Great pick...here is McCagg's scouting report on Thrower from another thread:

"Thrower..he's got issues defensively though, gets burned a lot at this point. Plus he's a late birthday, and is undersized for a defenceman, and needs work on his pivoting and agility. You have to love his grit and shot though"
