Patrick Berglund
 
Does that guy really have the potential to be a number 1 center in the NHL? And if so, is it really likely? Because I think he could still be available when we pick and we don't have any players in our system that has the potential to be a no 1 center. What do you think?

I'm on the Berglund bandwagon per se, though it's not a reference since I have that tendancy on jumping bandwagons one day after the other and pretty sure until the draft.....in order to then be dissapointed about our choice... :D

But if he's everything we read about him, I would gladly go with him but thinking he could be there later, would we willing to trade down a little....

I doubt he will be a good #1, likely a #2 if he does make the show. Or a #1 on a real bad team...

If he had the chance to be a good #1 center he'd be projected to go top 10 or 15. There's a reason why he's in the 18-25 range. He doesn't seem to have many flaws and that is good, but not having many flaws can also be translation for ''not a whole lot of offensive upside'' either. I think it was Blind Guardien who wondered if he there was that much difference between Bergy and Michael Holmqvist, another tall and lanky swede who skates well and has talent but has never done anything with those tools.

Personnally I wouldn't risk loosing him althought there would be other interesting players like Fisher and maybe Williams, Bernier, Stewart, Wyshart...

PS I hope you won't be disapointed this year!

That's what I thought, but still if he becomes a decent no 1 center, playing with good wingers like Kostitsyn, Perezhogin, Latendresse and Grabovski could make a difference...don't you think?

My untimate plan was Brad Richards... but I guess we'll have to forget about it... :cry:
