NHL Draft June 24-25 2011 - who do you think we will pick up?

So we have no 1st or 2nd round pick....

Picking 84th overall. I am hoping for a steal at that point in the draft, looking at the skaters ranking around the 40 mark in both NA and Europe we may be able to pick up a decent prospect. ( I say 40 b/c of the players that could go before/after our spot....) I know it's a crapshoot, but I enjoy reading as much as I can about players who may go at that number...

What does everyone think?
Targets?

We see which player is the most intelligent, and draft him. Then we have him build a time machine so he can go back in time and see to it that Philly drafts Datsyuk.

That would be more than sweet. I hope the scouts done their homework. Hoping for lighting in a bottle.

We should just put names on a dart board and throw darts, that's about as much chance as anyone has of someone taken in the later rounds actually working into the NHL.

I'm banking on having a higher pick by the time the draft rolls around.

If we are committed to getting a goalie, someone has to move for that to happen.

Someone worth assets has to move.

That asset should be higher than 84th overall, preferably top 30.

I wager Homer finds a way to trade away the rest of the picks, if only to find a way out of making the trip up to Minnesota.

One name that keeps popping up is Sault Ste Marie defenseman Ryan Sproul. Good size, excellent skater, hell of a shot from the point. He's a little light for his size (6'4, 185 pounds), but if he adds 25 to 30 pounds, that's a heck of a defenseman. He's considered a dark horse only because he spent time in the OJHL this year with the Vaughn Vipers before being recalled on a full time basis by the Greyhounds.

Two other players to keep an eye on are Seth Griffith, a center from London and Christopher Gibson, a goaltender from Chicoutimi. Griffith has been a steady climber all year and scouts love his overall game. He's only 5'10 and 180 pounds, but he plays in all situations in London. He's got a non-stop motor and his hands aren't bad either.

As for Gibson, he was expected to be one of the top goaltenders taken, but has fallen not because of his play, but simply because other players have risen. He's a good size goaltender (6'1, 200 pounds) has excellent lateral movement, a good glove hand and is a workhorse. He's from Finland (his mom is a Finn, his dad is a Brit) and was a product of the Espoo system until he was 15 and then he went to Notre Dame in Saskatchewan. He took a bit of an unconventional route to get to North America, but he definitely has game.

Players that I like who may be there when we pick are:
Adam Reid a 6'4' Center who can move. NTDP USHL
Frankie Simonelli 5'11" D Wisconsin WCHA
Andrey Pedan 6'4" D Guelph OHL
Colten St.Clair 5'10" RW Fargo USHL
Jesse Forsberg 6' D Prince George WHL
Justin Sefton 6' D Sudbury OHL
Miikka Salomaki 5'11" LW Karpat FIN
Johan Sundstorm 6'2" C Frolunda SWE
Oliver Archambault 5'11" C Val d'Or OMJHL

And last but not least the player I want to see in Black and Orange the most(make it happen Homer) is Gabriel Landeskog 6'1" LW Kitchener OHL I know this is a pipe dream but this kid is the real deal.

You're gonna make me cry. I hate that we've seen the last of him in Kitchener.

Sefton, meh. He was a top 5 draft pick entering the OHL but hasn't done much of anything since. It may be a case of being bigger than the competition in lower leagues, and them catching up to him in the last two years.

I have my doubts Holmgren could even draft the bottle.

I'm figuring Holmgren will be taking the biggest body on his turn. Sproul looks like he would fit Holmgren's MO. I know nothing about whom to look for, so I appreciate the names and brief descriptions being offered in this thread.

Isn't Landeskog the number two prospect overall or something?

Homer is going to look at the PIM column, think it means "Points in Millions," see a player with 570 in a season, and believe it means the guy scored 570,000,000 points in a season.

"We drafted this player for his incredible production. We believe he will be a fan favorite, due to the millions of goals he will score. He is good at faceoffs."

He's also known as "Red #23" here in Portland.

You missed "and he's a great locker room presence".

I'm thinking someone along the lines of Garrett Klotz. He was a third rounder.

I really think the Flyers should make some sort of trade for a pick next year. Trade a 3rd and 4th this year maybe for a 2nd next year. Or perhaps a 3rd this year for a 3rd and 4th next year. It's not much, but its better than the chances we have now.

He will go in the top three. I guess you could not figure out what I was saying there.

What Klotz type players on in this draft? It's been a while since Homer wasted a 3rd rounder on a goon

What I meant was I think they ought to try to maximize the number of picks in future drafts. If they can acquire more picks in a future draft, I would go that route.

For example, try to trade a 3rd rounder this year for a 2nd rounder next year. That's what I would try to do.

I think Landeskog will drop to #4 for the Devils - or the Devils will trade up to get him. I will hate the idea of him going to the Devils; that is why it will happen.
