Zac Dalpe has made excellent depth choices in the canes organization. Luke Adam for the sabres. Tyrell, Subban, Weber, Galiardi, Simmonds, Weber, Mcginn, Lucic, Anisimov, Stepan, Voynov, White. It honestly depends on the player and organization that gives them own time and development curve.


Maybe if it's the 2010-2011 version of Kulie. Kulie wasn't even one of our top-4 forwards last season, behind: Kessel, Lupul, Macarthur, and Grabo. Don't get me wrong, I like Kulie; before last season he was my favourite player, and I think he'll bounce back for 20 goals/50 points this year.

I also think 2nd rounders are fairly highly valuable, especially if a GM has faith in his scouting staff. You can snag an impact player with one.

Still have to disagree with you there man, you're picking a guy with 7 goals as our best overall forward? Kessel is our best forward, hands down. Lupul with a close second. Grabo coming in third.

If Kule can return to his 10-11 season form then he is our best overall forward. As of now, his offense is non-existant.

Seems like a fun kid. Really happy he fell to us, seems like a great pick. I always love when Burke drafts big Leafs fans, too. Nice to know that the guys suiting up for us really want to suit up for us.

Grabovski is by far the best OVERALL forward on the team. Most takes, highest CORSI etc etc. He is the best not really up for debate. He isn't putting up numbers like Kessel but he also isn't glaringly deficient defensively.

Matt Finn was an absolute STEAL! He is an NHL D and in his own way not much lower (in my mind) talent wise than our 1st pick. Burke has put together an amazing future for Toronto defensively. The offense is coming together, Scrivens could be the real deal (forget reimer he is to slow) but we lack a little in the way of #1C's.
