With the 2nd overall pick, the Columbus Blue Jackets are proudto select from the Sarnia Sting Nail Yakupov, we feel that Nail will be an impact player in the NHL with his speed, skill and passion. We feel that he will be a cornerstone of our franchise for many years.
With the Third Overall pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, The Montreal Canadiens are extremely proud and elated to select.....
From the Sarnia Sting
We feel the fact that Alex was available at three made him the Best Player available, and with his elite level of work ethic and high end skill we feel he will add a brand new dimension to our pool of prospects. Alex brings all the tools (speed, skill, IQ, work ethic) to be an impact player on the NHL level.
With this pick we feel, we finally have addressed our need for a top line center, and we look forward to seeing Alex develop as we feel he is a gem in this years' draft.
I'm fine with this. Bunch of computer hogs at work, I may only be able to make my pick (7th) after 5 today.
If I don't get to make my pick at #6 before then, you might not be on the clock until well after that. I might have to think about making a list to send you and pick on my behalf, actually, instead of making you wait.
Well, if anyone doesn't think they'll be on to make their picks, I work around a computer all day. If you do decide to send me your picks, however, put something descriptive in the subject bar. You should see how many PM's I got *****ing about infractions
