Would be great, if Sutter is still around he would trade down for a top 10 pick and 2 second rounders and pick grinders. :cry:

Or at least trade down for the 2nd pick and take that kid from Red Deer...


Edit: It's somewhat depressing that the kids in the 2011 draft were born the year I graduated high school.

Larsson obviously.

If Sutter was GM it wouldn't surprise me.

Couturier.

canadajazz 12-10-2010 03:46 PM

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, without a doubt. The center this franchise needs....

I agree, Couturier is good but Hopkins is a pure playmaker.

3rdEye 12-10-2010 04:12 PM

Nugent-Hopkins

Phaneufed 12-10-2010 04:25 PM

BPA, always BPA.

tfong 12-10-2010 04:43 PM

Couturier.

Need a possible centerman to build around.

King In The North 12-10-2010 05:17 PM

I don't know how to spell his name but that Swedish forward? But hey, any top center would be awesome.

Triple Deke 12-10-2010 05:37 PM

If Flames have #1, go with Couturier.

Flames most likely won't be higher than #5. Hoping we get a chance at Joel Armia if that happens.
Or we can try to trade for Boston's 1st rounder from Toronto. That's guaranteed to be top 3.

StreakingRed 12-10-2010 05:47 PM

What this team needs more than anything is a franchise centerman. If the Flames had the first overall pick, they'd be stupid not to use it to acquire the best centreman available.

DBU 12-10-2010 06:34 PM

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.

That's what I said. Larsson.

As an Oilers fan who wants to see a solid BOA in the works, if you guys do pick first (you'll have to win the lottery against the Islanders, because they WILL be last) I would love to see you take Couturier. He and Backlund would be great prospects to build a solid 2-way team around (that J-bo would fit in aswell). A solid 2-way Flames vs a Run N' Gun Oilers offense would make for a great battle

Gabriel Landeskog. Love him. I'd take him if RNH is gone (since I don't think Calgary will pick first short of winning the lottery). Be a great Iggy replacement down the road.

goodsauce 12-12-2010 03:28 AM

I would go with anyone. My top choice would be Landeskog, even if he isnt rated as high as several other spects. But hey, I am no Darryl Sutter :sarcasm:

tmurfin 12-12-2010 03:37 AM

i seriously doubt they finish last but this eould be my order depending on whos available;

1) RNH
2) Couturier
3) Landeskog
4) Armia

but i doubt we'll drop lower than 5 last

debil 12-12-2010 05:53 AM

Hopkins is just point per game in junior league. This guy is supposed to be #1 pick?

I think Hopkins is overrated :P But keep in mind he is playing in WHL, which is typically lower scoring than OHL/QMHL.

I guess WJC will help me decide a little more :D
