If we could do it straight up for that pick... it'd be hard to say no.

I'd be tempted to do that... a bit risky of a move though.

The more I see him, the more I want Grimaldi. Kid has a certain moxie about him, and has the skills to match.

Tampa needs to draft defensemen.

All the forward firepower is there and already locked up, enough money is spent on defense, some solid contracts on defense would help.

Prospects #27 and #28. Would Scott Mayfield be an option?

Never draft for need!

Fortunately for us, there's a handful of defenseman that also happen to be projected to be BPA at 27. This draft is more of a crap shoot than past ones, so I wouldn't be shocked if a defenseman rated in the 18-25 range dropped to us.

Cam Fowler proves pure BPA draft strategy in the NHL is untrue.

I'm still not sold on Fowler, I still see a very possible Wisniewski career arc with him.

Then again Connolly could be in a walker before he makes an NHL roster, so there you go.

Take a look at the Edmonton forum's 2011 Draft thread. Lots of information there about guys who your team might have an interest in.

Why did Tyler Biggs fall so far from the midterm rankings?

ISS says in its May rankings:
Quote:
In February's U18 event Biggs was a monster and was the most noticeable player on the ice whenever he touched it. During the U18 World Championships, Biggs was almost an afterthought. The intense and aggressive power forward was unable to create much in terms of offense and even saw his physical advantage taken away by some surprising sources. Biggs has really created a lot of questions around his development and whether he can play the style that makes him so appealing at the higher levels. Although invisible for a lot of the tournament, Biggs still provided the tournament with two of its most memorable moments, scoring the OT winner against Canada in the semi final and launching a German player into the bench with easily the biggest hit of the tournament during their round robin meeting.

New poster here!

As far as drafting goes, I'm not a big fan of drafting based on team needs, because by the time these prospects end up on the big club, chances are the team needs will have already been fulfilled.

That being said, I think we ought to draft one of Mayfield or Grimaldi (I realize they are two very different players both in style and position). If it were up to me, I'd choose Mayfield, but it would be a tough choice. I don't know what it is, but there's something about Grimaldi that makes me think that if he was still on the board and we passed him up, we'd regret it.

So nice to not be talking about which of the top 5 prospects we want though. I'd take playoff hockey over a high draft pick every year.

The 4 "experts" doing the mock drafts on nhl.com have us taking:

Jonas Brodin, D (Farjestad)
Oscar Klefbom, D (Farjestad)
David Musil, D, Vancouver
or
Max Friberg, LW, Skovde

Guess they think Stevie likes Swedes....

I've looked through those mocks a few times, and I feel as though their scouting info is outdated. Before the season began, Musil was projected as a early-mid first rounder and his stock quickly plummeted as the year progressed. At this point, I feel as though he's a definite early-mid second rounder who will be chosen around 38-45. It'd definitely be a reach to take a chance on a defensive defenseman in the first round, but this draft is so unpredictable that anything could happen.

Either Klefbom or Brodin would be incredible value at 27, and I'd be happy with either.

Musil was a top-5 player in the draft a year ago, projected as the best czech(I think) prospect since Jagr and the best defense prospect ever for them.

His stock has fallen but I would gladly take him with our 1st rounder or 2nd if other good defense-man are not available.

Not sure how many, or if any, of you guys live in Orlando, but I wanted to let you know I'm having a draft get together at my place on the 24th. Going to have several HF Panther fans over, I know at least one Wing fan will be over, and think it'd be fun to meet some of the others on here.

I live in MetroWest, and we'll be starting about an hour or so before the draft starts and you're welcome to stay til it's over. Let me know.

It wouldn't be the end of the world if we drafted Musil at 27, but there'll be plenty of other better value players available at 27. If Klefbom, Brodin, Morrow, Mayfield and Oleksiak are all gone when we pick, it would probably mean a few higher rated forwards have slipped. Like most others, I don't like drafting based on need, and Musil is still a reach at 27.
