Sett Griffith and Brett Kulak...oh and Brandon Whitney. How we failed to pick him up over Megna is beyond my comprehension. 7th round steal.

Im not going to classify anyone a steal at this point. As-well i know nothing about other teams prospects. So this is biased.

After going to the leafs prospect camp earlier this summer i will say that Dominic Toninato looked great. Soft silky hands with good vision. Will he play in the NHL? Who knows.. What i do know is that hes fit for the top 6 and nothing else. Hes a long term project that looks to have the overall package just needs to put it all together.

Don't see how anyone can call Ebert a steal. Dude showed so many negatives that he went from being a possible first rounder to barely picked at all. Seems like any player who was once highly touted and fell is called a steal by the fans of the team who drafted him. See it every year with a couple guys.

Reminds me of Tommi Kivisto in the fact that he was hyped, never lived up to it, got drafted in the 7th, was seen as a potential steal and then faded into obscurity (for Kivisto, remains to be seen for Ebert).

Can anyone name for me a player who was highly rated, dropped like a ton of bricks, and then ended up being a good player?

I wanted Whitney in the 2nd or 3rd, they got him in the 7th, huge upside.

I think Alex Kerfoot (5/150, NJD) has a lot of potential, especially now that he's apparently 5' 11.5''.
He was listed at 5' 7'' a year ago and an inch or two bigger than that around the WJAC, but if he's grown that much, he could be a real steal.
He's been very good at every level I've seen him play at and has some great qualities that can't be taught (very good offensive ability and sense, high compete).

His size (listed at 5' 9.5'' by CS), lack of a college commitment (did not commit until early August), and the fact that his father has a lot of money (part owner of the MLS' Vancouver Whitecaps; kids that come from families like this are usually penalized, see Joe Colborne) all probably worked against him.

I think Ryan Rupert makes it to the show.

It was also a great pick because it was essentially a 2 for 1 pick, since the twins stick together.

Bingo. I don't know much about the other kids, but Laleggia could become one hell of an offensive defenseman at the next level if he can overcome his lack of size. I've really liked what I've seen of him at DU.

Lots of chatter about why he fell. Some say attitude, some say inflated stats from the previous year from playing with Ryan Ellis. For a guy who was supposed to be one of the best Americans in the draft, that's a massive fall to be drafted last overall.

For the Flyers Shayne Gostisbehere in the 3rd round looks to be a great pick. Was fantastic at Lake Placid.
It's so weird for Ebert to fall...Maybe I think it because I personally know him. Played with him in travel and against him in high school.

PLUS, I really wanted NJ to draft him! Take away that he had a bad year, Devils are his favorite team growing up. We gave the pick to Anaheim but if he was available (which he was at the time) then get the pick back for future considerations

This is going to be a list mostly of Habs picks from the 2012 draft so I apologize in advance:

3rd round:
- Tim Bozon (38pts, 28games) - sure he has played alongside JC Lipon and Colin Smith, but this is only his 2nd season in North America and I'm sure anyone would be very happy with his performance to date, and I don't think you could just put anyone alongside Lipon and Smith, and expect the line to dominate like it did earlier in the season

4th round:
- Brady Vail (27pts, 28games) - despite being known as a solid defensive forward, he, until very recently, led the Windsor Spitfires in scoring

5th round:
- Charles Hudon (31pts, 23games) - played very well at both the Canada-Russia challenge and the SSS, he is considered by many to be nearly a lock for Team Canada at the WJCs; he is second in scoring on his junior team despite missing 6 games from a check to the head; his team went winless in the time he was absent from the lineup
- Seth Griffith (2nd in OHL scoring) looks like a good pick even though he was born in early 1993

I may be biased but Matt Deblouw is 2nd in points at Michigan State University and is around 60% at faceoffs the kid looks great especially for a 7th round pick.
