If we're lucky, only one of Tinordi/Beaulieu becomes a top-4 dman. By that time Gorges will be on the wrong side of 30 and Markov on the wrong side of 35. Most defensemen drafted in the 1st round don't pan out. It's a dice roll not a sure thing, and the dice is weighted towards "bust". The same Trevor Timmins who drafted Ryan McDonagh drafted David Fischer the year before.

Gallagher? I'm not looking forward to Gallagher-Desharnais-Gionta as our 2nd line.

Bournival? Kristo? Geoffrion? lol.

Ryan White? He's Gregory Stewart without the fighting ability.

What we're missing is a legit 1st line center with size, a shutdown dman who is good enough for the 1st pairing, a 3rd line shutdown center, a good coach, and a good GM. However, that's what every bad team in the NHL is missing.
Eller becoming Pleks?...You look at that as a bad thing?...WOW

Kristo with 36 pts in 33 games yeah he's going to be horrible. And yeah an already filled out bournival at 187 lbs is horrible. He's ripping up the Q. Geoffrion will be a solid 3/4th liner as he is all hustle and all energy which is exactly what this team needs. Give me a break.
