Grade the draft and the picks

I gave this draft a solid B. I felt they could have done a TAD better with the Miller pick (B), though I do like it a lot.

Fogarty was a really solid pick in the third (B+). St. Croix, while I am not a fan of him, was solid value in the 4th (B). McColgan was my favorite of the last three picks (A) and Noreau I know nothing about other than he can really beat the **** out of guys (C).

PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE ERIXON IN THE VOTE.

Also, please grade the picks individually, too, if you can.

Giving it a B+
Considering Erixon, everything else is gravy

C, not great, but not a bad draft at all. I am excluding Erixon (who would have been a top 15 talent in this draft) in my grade.

Don't now how anyone could vote it was a A.

Gave it a B, without considering Erixon.

If you consider Erixon a draft move, I give it an A without doubt.

I gave it an A only because of Erixon. Without Erixon, I give it a solid B

Why would people consider Erixon in this? He was traded to us 3 weeks ago, that didnt happen at the draft.

For future voting, DO NOT INCLUDE ERIXON. This is about the picks only.

I agree on it being a B overall. I like drafting some of the smaller guys with skill late, since they can progress while not being under the pressure of the media to get to the NHL quickly. I hope one of McColgan or St. Croix can be a big player for this team. Fogarty will be interesting as well, but ppl will link him to grachev and if he plays well in St. Louis/Peoria this season, it'll be questioned as a pick.

Because he is essentially a draft pick for us as he would have gone top 10 in this draft and we traded both our 2nds to get him

If Erixon didn't sign with Calgary (or the Rangers for that matter) he would have gone back into the draft, and likely be selected in the top 15 or so of the first round.

Did not include Erixon, and gave it a B. This draft has significant boom/bust potential after JT Miller. That is the correct approach to a draft like this.

I like what they did, a solid B/B+

Miller's a real nice prospect who projects very well to make the NHL, and I really like the high-risk, high-reward picks we made in Fogarty, St. Croix, and McColgan. Not really a fan of the Noreau pick, but whatever.

Sorry factored in Erixon. Still, I think we've done well.

B

Like Miller a lot.
Fogarty looks solid, could develop into a Stepan-type
St. Croix and McColgan have high upside but are long shots to reach their potential
Noreau looks like a solid positioned D-man but upside is a #6-7

Overall some of the guys are long shots to even make the NHL, but if the potential is reached some of the picks can turn out great

Went B, liked the first rounder, and liked what you guys, and the scouting reports said about the other picks. Also like getting the 6th round late Euro pick.

I'll just grade the first round pick.

Miller - A

People complaining dont know what theyre talking about. Miller has more upside as a hockey player and for what he can contribute to a Pro team, then the likes of Puempel, Bartschi, Grimaldi, and some of the other names people were drooling over.

Miller is more complete. Plays a legitimate two way game, hes big, fast, strong, gritty, and he has a high skill level. He has good vision, can set up hus teammates, can score, has a hard shot. He does everything.

Will he be a superstar? No. He has the potential to be a very good NHL player and leader. He will be able to play in all situations.

Hes going to one of the top hockey programs in the country.

What else people expect from #15?

As far as i'm concerned, Rangers couldnt have done any better unless they traded up.

Ceresnak gets a B from me in the 6th since I guess he's good value. Know nothing about him, though.

I went "A", simply because, aside from Scheifele, Miller was the guy I wanted at 15. I also like that they identified a player they wanted in the round 3, who has boom potential, who can fill a need in the organization, as well, while moving a player they had either soured on, or at least felt had become redundant and/or bypassed by other prospects.
