With the team's depth right now if we draft a forward in the first round I think he has a hard time making the cut. That third rounder could be looking at a 3-5 year stint in juniors or the minors between draft day and getting a chance. In other words, it's not a big loss. At some point you have to stop drafting in the mid rounds and get classy guys you can rely on in the NHL. I'm done talking about tomorrow, let's focus on now! To quote The Simpsons:
