I think it's getting to the point where we can safely say that 4th overall would be the lowest we'll pick. Can't see us making any ground to do anything better than 3rd overall.

It's actually not a bad position considering from what I'm reading the draft is shaping into tears now and the first tier seems to be the four of Dal Colle, Bennet, Ekblad, Reinhart.

I don't claim to know who's better and I usually don't like defenseman early in the draft but that's mainly ones that don't put up points. Watching Ekblad at the world Juniors I came away more impressed than I expected with his offensive game.

Hopefully we can get Ekblad. After that whomever is left of the 4 that will for sure play center.
