You've got Armia for that. Though I suspect they work on elite wing talent next draft.

lol nope, but maybe he read my blog.
Don't know if it's good or bad that I like the same players they do.

Peterson sounds highly skilled, heading to Saint Cloud St.

Yep.

Hard to knock drafting big guys who can skate.

sorta OT, but shoutout to dylan blujus for getting drafted, went to middle school/h.s. with him. Freakin crazy to think he's made it that far.

Also OT - Listening to sirius radio before the draft and Doug MacLean was talking about a few things from his draft days.

One - When he took Zherdev, Darcy told him after the draft that if MacLean took Vanek, he was definitely taking Zherdev. People may not love Vanek, but thank got MacLean made that choice.

Two - One two different occasions, he picked up seventh round draft picks in exchange for a round of golf at a club owned by Blue Jackets owner John McConnell.

After thinking about the picks them made today for a little while, I don't really know where they're going with some of them.
I said after the first round that the rest of the picks could bust and it'd still be a good draft, but I didn't want them to seriously pick guys that are fairly marginal in my eyes right now.
Maybe I'll warm up to them, but whatever.

Cool to see that they actually have a scout doing the SuperElit now, though.
