I'd take one of the forwards (Wilson or Gaunce) before I'd settle for Koekkoek. It's not like I've seen a whole lot of him but I've got a bad feeling about this guy. If we're really set on getting a d-man Matthew Finn impresses me more than Koekkoek.

To have an opinion on who we take would imply that I know what I'm talking about, which I don't. Therefore, I'll be happy with whoever we take.

You know what i like about Wilson RW is that he could be NHL ready by the time Neil RW has completed his next contract. Wilson will likely return to junior after the draft for next season, then the following yr to Bingo for a yr or more likely two before being ready to join Ottawa. Neil has one more yr on his contract then could sign another 2 yr deal which when completed would coincide with Wilson being NHL ready.

Personally, I was hoping for Ottawa to trade up for Ceci & if not possible trade down for Koekkoek if possible or draft him at #15, then make another deal around #20 to #24 & draft Wilson there. I'd be happy with Koekkoek & Wilson in the first round especially if Murray also makes a deal for a top 4 NHL young defenceman this wekend.

He and Hall will become best friends while they spend half their careers on the Oilers IR list.

Listening to TSN radio Montreal & one of the analysts just said he was in a bar last night with a bunch of NHL GMs, scouts & when they all wrote down who they thought would go 1 to 5, none of them had similar lists. It seems like it's gonna be a crap shoot tonight, anyone going anywhere including Yakupov because some think of the Russian factor.

Another point, if Zibanejad is part of the Nash trade & it happens is it possible Ottawa looks to replace him with Girgensons, if he is still there.

Isn't it very likely Ottawa may end up trading their 1st overall pick this year? They don't seem overly impressed with the draft class.

Paul Holmgren just walked by me. I told him to leave Nash for us and pointed to my jersey. He laughed and nodded. Your welcome guys.

Rumours from Lebrun suggest they're trying to move up, so they may feel otherwise.

If they're trying to move up, makes you think that their pick probably isn't included in Nash, OR that CBJ wants a higher 1st.

Murray already said this was the case. Adding the 1st would require the deal to be done today, which may not be the case.

I liked him in the one game I saw of Guelph, but it's a near certainty that one of the usual suspects, or someone falling, will be there at 15, and I'd prefer those options.

Ottawa Senators Fanbase June 2011:

"Its great to see the franchise realize its desperate need to rebuild and use the draft as its main means. I'm ready to support this process that I fully realize will take a few years. Its happened before and it'll happen again."

Ottawa Senators Fanbase June 2012:

"lol draft? Draft picks rarely, if ever, pan out. Ever heard of Alexander Daigle? Trade it all for underproducing stars locked into bloated life long contracts. You're crazy if you think prospects would actually develop into quality NHLers. LA just traded away everything for Mike Richards and Jeff Carter who single handedly lead them to a predictable cup win. Do it Murray! I don't care if we scored more goals than 90% of the league and our defense is crap and aging, sell it all 4 FWRDZ!"
