In my world...
2011 Draft Selections:
Round 1, Pick #16: Joel Armia RW: Natural goal scorer with good size and speed
Round 3, Pick #76: Daniel Catenacci C: Great skating offensive center, may be better suited to the wing.
Round 4, Pick #106: Colin Jacobs C: Ended the last season as third line LW after coming back from a lengthy injury rehab. Has the size and skating, needs to show more of the offensive skills that had him be a high bantam draftee.
Round 5, Pick #136 Alex Lepkowski, LD: Rugged local kid, could be a bit of sleeper.
Round 6, Pick #166 Nathan Lieuwen, G: Signed, will be fighting it out with Knapp for the #2 job in Rochester.
Round 7, Pick #196: Brad Navin, C: Overage, went straight off to to Wisconsin and played a lot as a true freshman on the 4th line. Rugged kid, had some serious scoring totals in HS, still a project.
Round 1, Pick #23: Mark Pysyk RD: Steady, smart, great skating stable defenseman coming off a great final season with Edmonton Oil Kings.
Round 3, Pick #68: Jerome Gauthier-Leduc RD: Smart, skilled, great offensive d-man who's progressed nicely in his own zone. Should be more than just a PP specialist, junior coach once compared him to Letang.
Round 3, Pick #75: Kevin Sundher C: Like Catenacci, very fast center will be in Rochester this year as a rookie pro.
Round 3, Pick #83: Matt MacKenzie RD: Smart defenseman who was willing to play anywhere this past season, played both D and center when asked. Started coming on and then missed time with a skate cut injury.
Round 7, Pick #203: Christian Isackson, RW: Effort player, played a season in USHL, mostly at center before heading off to a so-so freshmen season as a Gopher. Small but smart, works extremely hard.
Round 7, Pick #208: Riley Boychuk , LW: Struggled as a rookie between AHL and ECHL after finishing out his junior career as a solid physical player. Needs to show up this year more like the big guy who would hit, fight and go to the net with the Winterhawks.
I took out Shipley, Sutch and Henley as they were not tendered and are no longer Sabres' property.
