Call the 'HFBoards' Steals

Tell me the players you see falling, what range they fall to before they are proclaimed a steal.
Try to be realistic, here's a couple examples from years past:

Angelo Espisito falls to #20 in 2007, Penguins accused of larceny.

Mayorov was the 4th ranked euro before sliding to #94

Paajarvi was considered a slider at #10.

Pulkkinen was a robbery at #111 after going to the Red Wings.

My few predictions of an hfboards steal:

-Frk past 50
-Grigorenko past 7
-Vaskilevski past the first 2 rounds
- Koekkoek past 40

Fire away!

Grigorenko falls to the Canes at #8 (also proves to be a real life steal ala Fowler, Couturier, etc.)

Frk falls past #40
Marcantuoni falls to the 3rd round
Kerdiles falls to the early 2nd

Grigorenko out of the top five.

One of Murray or Dumba slides past ten.

Girgensons slides into late teens early twenties (because of his insistance on Vermont).

Collberg into the twenties.

Kerdiles AND Matteau in the second round.

Frk after them.

Subban (in the late 20s) This draft year will be a big contrast for goalies compared to others, I think.

I really dont remember anyone saying Pitt performed an act of larceny when they got Esposito....the dude fell for a reason, he simply leveled off at his draft year and has done snot ever since...

I personally see Tom Wilson falling to late first round (26-30 range)

I dont see Radek Faksa going top 10

Girgensons slides to the Hawks at #18 (more a hope on my part, but I can see it happening)

Matt Finn drops out of the first round....

The larceny that year according to everyone was Cherepanov to New York. And it looked like everyone was right until tragedy struck.

Is this the year that Bob Mckenzie only goes 20/30 rather than his normal 25/30.

Coda Gordon in round 3. Needs to be a top 45 pick.

I clearly remember a lot of people saying that Pittsburgh was the perfect fit for him and if there was a place good enough for him to develop and show us wrong, it was there.

Esposito was traded quickly after being drafted though.

True, but people were still saying how Pittsburgh is lucky to land another high end talent.

Reinhart won't be a top 5 pick. He hasn't done anything since TSN originally ranked him 10th, except have a mediocre Memorial Cup. He'll go 8-10.

*shrugs*

We got full value for him on the trade market, so the fact he was a major bust doesn't bother me in the least.


After that draft there was definitely a lot of people saying Esposito fell into the perfect scenario for him and that Pittsburgh got a total steal...and plenty of people saying that he was sliding for a reason. Typical case for a slider.

Whoever drafts Lukas Sutter (outside the 1st round) will be considered a steal because he's a Sutter; playing in the NHL is what they do.
