Killjoy!;)

A lot of what goes on around these boards is...speculation!!;)
(predicting, speculating and salivating at how good some of our prospects will be...is all part of the fun!!). Some of these threads are fun since they're like ''time capsules!'' (fun to look at later on). If every thread had ''it's all speculation till 5 yrs from now'' it would be a very boring website!! it would be a killjoy/depressing website!!

Our last draft just looks insane.. Dont know if it will turn out to be one of the best of this franchise but lets say Ive a very good feeling about this one..

yeah it looks good now, but back then people thought the 2007 draft was... unimpressive. yet, we walked away with 2 #1 defensemen and a 30 goal scoring winger.

just saying that in 5 years, it could all be for nothing... :(

on topic: hudon is gonna be a good one ;)

Galchenyuk (1st among our forward prospects + 1st overall at 8.5C)
Collberg (1st among our winger prospects)
Thrower (3rd after Beaulieu+Tinordi...Thrower is tied with Ellis)
Hudon (1st among our left-wing prospects)
Bozon (1st place tie with Hudon among left-wing prospects)
Vail...

For now...we can say (at the least) that this 2012 Draft was really really good for our overall PROSPECT DEPTH!! (this draft imo can be worth 2 or 3 decent Drafts to our prospects' depth).
Fair to say that we expect at least 3-4 Hab prospects from this '12 Draft to make it to the NHL...hoping for more! We really need Galchenyuk to be at least a 70pt two-way 1st line center (at worst a 65pt two-way center...of course we'd love an 80pt+ center out of him but let's lower the pressure on him!). And, if Galchy delivers especially during playoffs...I'm a very happy Hab fan!

And, I'm huge on building a strong D-Corps (defence wins), so...I'm really hoping Thrower can be ready in 3 years (maybe less?), but I wouldn't rush him. Subban, Gorges, Tinordi, Beaulieu, Ellis, Thrower, Dietz...excited!!:yo:

I have to add this. This last draft it's Timmins that finally was NOT interfered with BY the GM. A look what happened. I have to add this the NEXT draft is a very deep draft, I really feel Timmins will again extract another great draft for the Habs. As much as I would like the Habs to do well this year, if the lockout lasts until xmass or ferther it might be a GREAT idea just to do OK and NOT finish high. A short 30-40 game season might be what the doctor ordered to land another say 10-5 draft position for the Habs, Timmins would jump for joy for a second chance to draft great talent.

Not surprising, I think most people agreed that the Habs were the clear winners of the draft. Now, we need to hope these kids develop into NHL players

Consensus
 
Other years Timmins got blasted for ignoring the consensus until (sometimes after trading the prospects) the results were in and his picks looked really good. This year it sort of worries me that Timmins went with the consensus, but then if you get high picks the consensus should be helpful so the 3 pick should be solid. I suppose the others could be coincidence, or maybe Timmins getting respect.

Considering some of the guys who fell a long way it was a bad year to flame out. Next year there is expected to be (I think) a bigger gap between the first few guys and the rest. We'll see if it is still the case once we get there. It takes a lot for a guy to succeed but not much for a prospect to fall short.

Fozz 09-12-2012 08:07 AM

Coincidence. Timmins has his list and he doesn't care about consensus. The next available guy on his list just happened to be the consensus pick, nothing more.

Shawn Wilken 09-12-2012 08:59 AM

On paper, the 2012 draft looks absolutely incredible.

Five years from now, I hope they still look as good.

Gabe84 09-12-2012 09:54 AM

I don't like this "consensus" thing. I don't think Collberg was a "consensus" pick. I mean, had we picked Kerdiles, Aberg or Frk, I bet a lot of people would be thrilled too. There were a lot of talented players left during the second round, the difference from previous years being that we had a high pick at hand, so those players were available at our position.
