Well, if the price is right...you have to consider it. There's no doubt the Euro scouts are already eying some 13 year old 6'1 kid out there stopping pucks.

First time in Pred history we took 5 forwards with our first 5 picks (highest was 3). Maybe first time including Poile's Washington days as well. Change of tides or anomaly? Probably a little of both. Very interesting either way considering this draft was D heavy.

Excited to read up on everyone. Only guy I was familiar with was Sissons.

He'll probably split starts with Adam Svoboda again this year, then come over next year.

If we do sign Caron, I see him heading to Milwaukee. That leaves Hellberg and Smith as potential backups to Peks while the other gets time developing in AHL. If Caron walks, we see Chet as the backup in Milwaukee behind either Smith or Magnus. Pickard is entering his make or break season as a pro ... take that next step and become a late bloomer or forever be remembered as a bust.

16 goalies drafted in Preds history prior to today ... one with any real success in the NHL to date. The odds are better that Mazanec is the next Kettles, Moir, Penko or Davis than the next Rinne or even the next Lasak / Lindback.

After round 1, Poile mentioned that there were two guys he really had his eye on at #37. One being Aberg I assume, wonder who the other was?
