Official 2012 Draftee visit thread

I was thinking we could possibly start a separate thread discussing visits from possible Draftees.

For instance, we know Ryan Murray visited the Isles over the weekend of June 2nd/3rd.

Grigorenko came in today June 5th as per Staples.

I thought if we had a separate thread, it would be easier to see than going through dozens of draft pages.

Whattya think mods ? Is this ok ?

It can stay separate so long as it discusses only who visits. If it gets off that it will be merged with the existing draft thread.

I am very interested in who is invited to visit and how it went with them.
I was not aware of the Murray visit and Grigs coming in. Isles doing a poor job of communication. They could be a bit more forthcoming.
With Weight on SC assignment for NBC, is it Garth, Morrow, Klatt, Cairns doing the meet & greet with the kids?
Who else is coming in? I'm hoping the top forwards will be here.

It would be kind of nice if only Forsberg, Galchenyuk, Grigerenko, and Murray came to visit. This way we know that these are the only players Snow is really interested in. (Of course taking into consideration that Yakupov is drafted #1).

Found this on the prospects board, looks like the Isles have spoken to most of the Saskatoon Blades prospects eligible for the 2012 draft, which makes me happy, because I like Dalton Thrower and was incredibly impressed by the goalie Andrey Makarov in the WJHC Gold Medal Game.

That being said, we can still draft Yak if he falls......like if he came the night before in a Nazi uniform and Hitler moustache to the VS studios and began ranting on TV about Toronto.

It could happen.

Colton Sissions looks like he's gonna be amazing.....Lou went to see him. How easy is that scouting tip?

well Grigs and Murray have hadtheir visits to LI.

Looks like the isles want Forsberg to visit.

Notes For 6/5
MacLean reminded some of the players that their presence is requested on Long Island. NYI have begun in-person meetings on LI and elsewhere. Murray and Forsberg are among the kids at the top of the list for Snow/Wang visits.

I would be shocked if Forsberg does not come to visit, I feel like he's exactly the "Snow type".
