One of the questions approached:
Quote:
"Question: Given the Maple Leafs wonít select in round three nor four of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, how should the team approach selecting in the second round with the thirty-fifth overall pick?"

I thought the mortgaging the future comment to acquire Galchenyuk and Yakupov was a paradox.

The fact that general manager Brian Burke and his staff don’t have the pleasure to select in the third and fourth rounds could very well come back to bite them in the future.

I think the best option for the Leafs is to watch for players who might slip down from projected first round rankings and simply get the best guy out there.
Thanks Tips!

Sure they pointed out the obvious, but at this point any info on the draft is good to me.

I just thought the worst part was Hardonk connecting the #5 pick and Ceci, Faksa, and Rielly. Sure, I'd definitely look at Rielly if forwards went 1-4, but he's the only one I'd consider at 5 out of those three. Faksa being the favorite simply due to being a forward is kind of frightening. At least the other two were more reasonable in their look at the options at 5.

Overall it wasn't bad though.

It's nice to have picks in every round, but I stopped reading after this comment.

For those of you who are pumped for the draft and want to read anything and everything about the draft, give @RossyYoungblood a follow on twitter. He too works for THW and has countless stuff on the draft and prospects. Places a good amount of focus on the Leafs too which is great!
