If the Pens had drafted those 2 blueliners in the reverse order I wouldn't have been the least bit surprised so I guess it doesn't matter...

According to your team of scouts?

Pierre freaks out about Pouliot and Maatta... Didn't hear much about Forsberg...

Random guess, maybe one was Fishman.

I don't feel like Dale chose Wilson. TSN had him at 18.
Fishman wasn't there. He's not involved in hockey decisions at all, I'm 95% sure. I forget what his title is, but he's an "assistant GM" who handles the salary cap. Brian MacLellan is the hockey-related assistant GM, I think.

You probably still have me on ignore anyway.

@SWhyno: McPhee said #Caps did NOT have Mikhail Grigorenko ranked in their top 20 players in draft.

I guess most of the other GMs were idiots about him too, so...whatever, I guess.

Fascinating. So if Forsberg hadnt been available at 11, who would they have picked? Probably Faska

Button loved Jankowski well before the draft. Had him higher than everyone else.

It's likely because his brother scouted (and subsequently picked) him.

Considering how much the Caps didn't like Cherepanov, not surprising.

Fishman was not at the table in that shot, and yes, he is not involved in "hockey" decisions.

It doesn't matter whose scouts you compare. At this point in the draft the difference between players is slim and there is bound to be disagreement between your scouts over the player rankings. I highly doubt that Tom Wilson was the consensus best player by the caps scouts. I could be wrong, because all we will ever hear from GMGM is that he was "the guy we wanted" (which is what every GM says).

IIRC:

McPhee, Weiderstal, Kucera, Mahoney

Consistent with what Langway posted earlier, looks like they were debating Forsberg vs Faksa (or at least appeared to be debating Forsberg vs someone else from overseas)

Man i hope the Caps draft Nathan Walker!!!!

Should be the first Aussie ever drafted.
One thing Aussies do in any sport, is have amazing spirit and work ethic.

Lets hope it happens.

Of course it matters what scouts you compare.

Of course he wasn't the consensus best player but he was the highest ranked player on their board. They don't have a group of say 5 guys ranked equally and then say, 'hey what is our organizational need?' They rank them all and rank one over the other for a reason and it is never what position they play.

Drafting 17-18 year old hockey players is in no way the same as drafing 21-22 year old football players.
