Well I'm one of the people who believe that the "weak draft" talk has been blown way out of proportion. Everyone was saying this about last year and it turned out to be a good draft. People always seem to say "Oh well this draft will suck anyways, but NEXT year is the best!" But I digress.


If we were to acquire this years draft, I would hope for someone like Matt Finn, Maata or Ceci if he falls.

a 30th place team needs help sooner rather than later.

Pick now if you can.

I'd rather it be packaged to pick up someone, rather than move up to draft someone.

I agree about the "weak draft" crap. Last years was a "weak draft" and Sean Couturier went 8th. Also last year all you heard was how great this draft was going to be with defenseman. Now it's here(well almost) and it they all suck now

Now that we pick number two, if everything falls in line, LA should now make the Cup finals... The next two years.
