Repik doesn't get my vote because he looks like a serial killer in his HFBoards photo.
Robak doesn't get my vote because both Acadmus & zeroG voted for him, which means there is something unholy about him.
McFarland gets my vote because for some reason it drives some people crazy that an educated guess about the development of an 18 year old may not agree with theirs.
These same people would have burst an aneurysm had you told them in June 2003 that both players Philadelphia drafted in the first round would end up being more valuable than Nathan Horton and that the guy drafted #19 may be the best of the bunch.
I was going to throw a bone to Kenndal McArdle, but you convinced me to give that vote to Repik based solely on the bolded comment.
Seems Panthers fans werent that impressed with Howden pick.
I remember during the draft, before the 25th pick, every Panther fan wanted Etem and I wanted Howden. I love that pick, he will be a very solid NHL player one day.
Petrovic can absolutely become a fantastic d-man, and he could have went late in the first round at the draft. Nice pick in the second.
About McFarland. He sounded like a great guy in the interviews after the draft. He also said he would now be more motivated by being drafted, and that he wanted to prove to everyone that he had a bad year. Will be exciting to follow the upcoming season.
