I'm having a lot of difficulty deciding if this is better or worse than the one Hockey's Future did, and I have no idea what to make of that.

I can't imagine the Leafs taking Forsberg if Murray is still on the board. That being said, I can't imagine the Blue Jackets not taking Murray or Dumba, so I could be way off.

Is Dumba's name pronounced "Dooo-mba"? or is it DUMB-ba?

The latter.

Should be the former if we talk about the origin of his surname though.

I think I know why Dumba has such a mean streak. You'd be forced to play tough too if you had a name like that.

This draft has the most unusual, humorous sounding names I've ever seen in a draft year, by far.

Frk at 32?

Lou is clearly keeping our pick to draft him. Mother of god I hope he's still available. Reminds me of the demon offspring of Jagr/Elias.

Martin is a goal scorer. He wants to score, is hungry to score and is that player who is lurking for the chance to score. He plays a straight ahead game and is more of a shooter. He has a good shot and can beat goaltenders with it down the wing and it's a heavy shot. His skating is good in straight lines and he creates separation between himself and defenders. He has good balance with a low center of gravity and is hard to knock off stride. His agility is adequate but not a necessary requirement for the style of game he plays. He uses his body to push to the scoring area and hold off defenders. He recognizes openings and opportunity and with a playmaking center who can get the puck to him, Martin has the abilities to be a good goal scorer at the NHL level.

Me Want.

He sounds like a beefier David Clarkson that can stay on his feet.

Last year he was projected to be a top pick. I'm not really sure what happened, but I'm glad it did. We really have a shot at getting him. I'd love to see a Elias-Henrique-Frk line.

Hopefully Frk could play with Elias before he leaves/retires.

He sustained a concussion in a pre season game if my memory serves me right. When he returned he didn't play so well, was out of shape cause he couldn't do anything while he was out. Read that he's not the fastest on his skates either and he can be inconsistent. Played better towards the end of the season and in the playoffs though.

Wouldn't mind the Devils picking him though. Offensively he's very talented and if he can have a good pre season this summer he'll probably do really well next year with Mackinnon and Drouin as his possible line mates. And he's a right wing which is our biggest need.

Seriously. I think the names are great too. Frk, Trouba, Dumba, Koekkoek, Thrower, Galchenyuk, Yakupov, and Grigorenko all have great surnames.

Too bad Grigorenko doesn't have another 'n' in his name.
