i admit i haven't been a goat-teflon bob fan of late but i like what he's done this week. we needed mean nasty. he dealt halak (tough move) for a solid second lien center with size -21yo and mean nasty winger 20yo..he then drafts a mean nasty d man - of which have 0 in our system with the departure of valentenko, emelin (mia), komisarek, mac D..etc..
bennett, carle and weber are all nice D but all are pure skill guys.
i like what goat is doing
Why are some people whining we took another defenseman? We have Camalleri, Gomez, Gionta, Plekanec in our top 6 for the next 4-5 years, then we have AK,Max pac, Eller, Leblanc, Pouliot, Danny Kristo and possibly a trade/free agent to fill the next 2 spot. I dont know why people want to aim for a third liner prospect with the 22 overall pick.
One of my ND going to San Jose. Might actually be a nice place for him though.
Me too...and Joey Hishon, one of the player I was pushing for, was took in the first round!
And for those who thinks we should have taken Emerson Etem, think about it...he's slipping so he most likely have many question marks surrounding him.
And I'm quite happy with Tinordi. The only reason he wasn't in my top 5 is because I prefer higher upside players in the first, but this guy should have an impact on our team in a few years. He'll make his mark!
