The Hawks get a gritty runt in the 1st and then take risk the rest of the way...but they can afford to do that..
Sabres 11 picks...8 picks are size.
Kings added more size.
Sens, 5 out of 7 size.
Flyers, 5 out of 6 size
Blue's all 4 picks...size.
Leaf's all big boys.
it's nice to go for home runs when you are loaded with the big club or your farm is ready to explode...we have neither...instead of infusing size into our system we went for reaches...you can't win like that.
Bruins are the toast of the East...Pen's still have the most talent but unless MAF turns it around they wont win ****.
I agree that players with skill, speed, size and snarl are very hard to find. And we need these players badly. Yet this was a draft with few picks and all late, crap shoot picks at that.
In that type of scenario I have to give Clark and his guys the benefit of the doubt. I can't blame him for going for home run scoring picks.
You can always use picks in a package to get what you need size wise later. That might be what they are thinking. Every team needs more goal scorers
