Sounds similar to Tyler Biggs, but less physical and does not fight. Who have thought that.?
I think Ziba is much better than Biggs though. Not only in my opinion, but there is a reason one of them is a projected top 10 pick and one is an iffy 15-20 pick.

I think with the right players on his line, Ziba will excel greatly. Like I said earlier, I'd love to have him play with Kreider. Kreider is a LW and Ziba is a C/RW so if he played RW, we could plug in a center, ala Stepan or Anisimov. That's a great line right there IMO

I wish HF would've posted it as an announcement on all forum pages. If people reduce their posts 10-15% between 7 pm and 9 pm, it would keep the site up.

RUMOR I am hearing is rangers trade down and take biggs and get a second in the deal let's see how it plays out


From your mouth to the draft floor. Hopefully this comes to fruition.

No defensemen! Please no defensemen!

And no to Biggs, Saad or Grimaldi! Strome, Zbad, Armia, Bartschi or McNeill please

3rd line type isnt out of the question with zbad. hes got an edge to his game and plays it kinda chippy but may lack that high end scoring touch.

still think ryan strome has a very high ceiling and would be a great pick if looking for a homerun type centerman

this is one of my favorite nights of the entire year.
If that's the case I don't think he fits the teams needs then. If he had the offensive upside then it would be a no brainer. I personally would trade down since the draft is deeper but not loaded with top end talented players. Trade down, get a 2nd round pick, draft Jurco, prosper

Zip is saying Avs are gonna take Landeskog, making it likelier that Larsson falls to the Debbies.

Unless Edmonton takes Larsson #1.

Eventually they need to start developing a decent defense corp.

My dream scenario, and I know it will never happen would be to trade up and grab Ryan Strome.

Then deal Anisimov and another top prospect for a top line LW'er.

???????????? - Richards - Gaborik
Dubinsky - Stepan - Callahan
Wolski - Strome - MZA
Fedotenko - Boyle - Prust

I would be in heaven. But again I know it will never happen.

See, I don't think they're going to be too good next season, either. I doubt they aren't i the top 5 at next year's draft. They'll have their opportunity to get a defenseman. I like Larsson a lot, but RNH is the best player available today, and they need a center, too.

They will be horrible again, and I expect them to trade away players like Whitney AND Hemsky for more picks. They are doing a FULL-rebuild.

The future is Kreider-Stepan-Armia

Armia or Mcneill. Agree with your "noes" and don't think the rest will drop to us. LGR

If that's the case, then it's likely they take a D at #11, likely pushing a forward down.

Why can't any TV network ever get it right...

EJ Hradek is awesome, Craig Button is annoying and ********. Why can't they get 2 good guys. Same thing with Versus and NBC. There is always one annoying ****** if not two.

Edmonton will be picking top three for at least another 3-5 years.
Owners are not going to spend any money and it's really not high on many UFA's destination list.

Meh...I don't think EJ Hradek is very good, either. None of these guys are good. They are all incredibly annoying, they never have anything insightful to add to the discussion, and for the most part, they just blab about the same 2 or 3 absurdly obvious points.

The biggest exception is Bob McKenzie. He's the real deal. Dreger isn't bad, either.
