Cepek intriguing

I like taking a player that flew under the radar because of injury with the last pick. Accoding to this Winter Hawks website, Cepek is a good skater, the best skating defenceman on their team.

Here is a link to the website; I used to read it when Balej and Hossa were in Portland:

Here is a couple of comments on whre portland fans thought Cepek may go in the draft:

"I think McLaren and Cepek will likely be selected somewhere between 3rd to 5th rounds. Both have a chance of sneaking into the 2nd round."


"I think both Gabriel and Cepek are a steal if they much beyond the 3rd round."

Suddenly the defence cupboard doesn't look so bare:

Emelin
Cote
O'Byrne
Fischer
Korpikari
Paquet
Valentenko
Carle
Cepek


If only three or four of that group make it to the NHL (and that looks like a strong possibility) we're still in good shape.
