Pretty happy with how my draft class turned out. I added a couple high-risk-high-reward players in Tolchinsky and Vanelli, but for the most part the rest of the group looks to have at least a minor NHL impact. Auger and Green are both huge, 6'7" giants, and look to be at least solid bottom line assets down the road, while players like Tolchinsky and Vanelli have sky high offensive potential. Lazar sticks with the theme of staying strong down the middle and he'll be a near perfect 3rd line center behind Couture and Pavs. Bjorkstrand and Soberg are both wildcards, but San Jose's prospect pool is really lacking on the wing, so I'm glad I added both of these guys. I feel like I got solid value at every pick, while still keeping with San Jose's needs. My only mistake was not taking Bowey at 46, as I simply didn't realize he was available. He was pretty easily the BPA, but I'm still happy with Bjorkstrand.
Anyone wanna rate how I did? Comments and criticism will be appreciated.
