im sorry but this team is just bad at drafting offense...
you take pouliot...who put up pedestrian numbers for junior hockey, and always had work ethic questions, instead of a kopitar as well as a few other MUCH better options that went from 5-15 that year.
sheppard over a guy like Frolik and others that ended up much better...
Gillies who is still grinding and looks to be a career 4th liner or 3rd line mucker and you trade up for him, involving a 2nd rounder lol....what the hell. You could of had Cherepanov. Sure we know how he turned out, but you can't prediect death....he was an offensive force.
Then you take Cuma who looks to be a stay at home D man, no offense whatsoever...
then Leddy over Schroeder who is gonna be pure offense.
You can draft good offense without having top 3 picks, but we seem incapable of doing that, so im hoping by having a top 3 pick we will have one of these guys fall in our laps and even we can't screw it up.
Then again knowing the wild, we will have a Hall or Seguin in our laps and take a D man, even though our last 2 first rounders have been D man, and we have NO talented young forwards in our system.
It's the wild way!
