Its a shame that Suter and Poile couldn't come to terms, but in all honesty, I think one more year in the NCAA could be very good for him. I am concerned with all of our players signing in Europe, but again........that could be good for them as well. Maybe Safronov will come back rejuvenated and ready to take a big step up into the NHL.
On the Prospects board, Hockey's Future's mock draft was posted, and they had us selecting 6'6" centerman Bruce Graham. I never thought he would even go in the first round, but it is something to consider. BTW Chipchura went 16th to the Isles...
I disagreed with the pick of Graham in a major way. Aside from size, he's a downgrade from Chipchura in every way.
