Looks like it's gonna be a boring rest of the summer so I think it will help pass the time until training camp if we start this talk just a bit early.
Early indications are that this draft will be deeper than the 2011 draft with some potential superstar talent at the top. It has a wealth of high-end defensemen in the first round and could go down as one of the best drafts ever.
Just filter the list to Swedes and you have our tentative draft list. Also, I look forward to drafting 30th overall.
All kidding aside, I think next year should be an interesting draft for Ottawa. Perhaps we'll see a new goalie into the mix and hopefully get some new star-power. I don't know anything about these prospects but I'm sure that'll change by the end of the season!
Anyone agree on a third last overall finish predicted by MyNHLDraft and landing Grigorenko with our top pick? Not sure I'd draft a Russian that high, but if he comes over to Quebec next year, I'll be more for drafting him.
