FYI to everyone, Laleggia is draft eligible this year. Whether he actually gets drafted remains to be seen.
just saw your response after I posted mine! drafting overagers from college is becoming a pretty decent trend more and more now...and I like it a lot.

I really like Florek, what a solid player he can be.

Maybe you can tell me more of Garrett Noonan OC? I saw him a handful of times this year, but man is this kid scoring big goals or what?? can he keep anything like this up at the AHL/NHL level in your opinion?

Thanks Oilers Chick...
