Yea the Kadri pick surprised me but I knew he had talent just not the guy I wanted. I was also defending Cowen hard out as a lot of people were bagging on him for bing a big slow defenseman. He's recovered nicely from his injury though good pick for the Sens.

Really only started paying a lot of attention to the draft in 2007:

2007 (when we had the 13th overall pick): Logan Couture, Lars Eller, Colton Gillies
2008: Colin Wilson, Luke Schenn, Mikkel Boedker
2009: Brayden Schenn, Magnus Paajarvi-Svensson, Zack Kassian
2010: Knew we didn't have a pick, didn't really pay attention.
2011: Ryan Strome (wanted him so bad, was hoping we could swing a trade), Mark McNeill, Boone Jenner, J.T. Miller, Matt Puempel, Ty Rattie.

I was really disappointed with our 2011 draft. Time will tell if I was right.

McNeil
Puempel
<--- I didn't follow this draft as much since we had low picks and didn't get them until later in the year. I am actually quite happy with the Percy pick now that I've read more about him, though his injuries are obviously a concern.

2009:
Cowen

2008:
Hodgson

2011- Tyler Biggs and Matt Puempel
2010- Bradley Ross. I went crazy when Burke traded into the 2nd round to get him.
2009- Zack Kassian
2008- I'm embarrassed to admit I wanted Filatov. If he was already gone I wanted to trade down and get Kyle Beach.
2007- Keaton Ellerby or Alexei Cherepanov
2006- Chris Stewart
2005- Andrew Cogliano

This. Some guy said he was calling for Giroux ... yeah right. As I recall, Tlusty was widely said to be a good pick and no one was thinking Giroux should have been taken with our pick

Now I'm not so sure... Guy needs to figure it out. All the talent in the world but he's dumb as a box of rocks both on and off the ice.

Only player I saw enough to hope the leafs would draft him was Kadri. He was lights out for the Knights in the playoffs that season.. Dare I say, out played Tavares. I wss VERY happy when the leafs drafted him.

Obviously the jury is still out on whether he will ever be the player I envisioned, but I still have high hopes.
