Bjorkstrand has 1st round skill level. He may fall to the early 2nd though due to his size and lack of physicality. He could rise if continues his current play though.

You know who I want? BPA. But yeah - a legit number 1d would be smart, I feel as if we've given up on Eddie too early he's still great.

Best case scenario I think. We have some decent looking 2nd/3rd pair defensive prospects, we just lack a blue-chip on D.

It's hard to peg this early since a lot of the draft literature really starts to come out closer to draft time. This thread is usually my best pre-draft source of info.

Obviously, I'd like us to take the BPA, whoever that is. It would be nice if that was a stud defender, but if it's a forward, so be it.

There is a lot of hockey to be played, and lots of people will rise and fall. Just look at last year, at this time I don't think anyone could see a scenario where Nick Ebert didn't go in the 1st round, in reality he ended being picked last of all.

Gogolev was just traded to Victoria before the first game of the season. In 2 games he has 5 points, small sample size but could be interesting.

Seth Jones or Gillis is a failure.

I don't know, there was a pretty vocal group around here that thought he had no place being in the 1st or 2nd round since roughly February/March of 2011.

I was at the Giants home opener against Victoria, Gogolev looked pretty good. I noticed him quite a bit, even from my crappy seats.

He's pretty small, though.

Interesting, I didn't remember that. I just remembered most pre-season lists slotting him quite high. But I'll take your word for it.

Watched the highlights of the first two Giants/Royals games, he was definitely noticeable.

It wasn't a very big group (maybe like 3-4 posters), but they were convinced he was getting attention because he got to play with Ryan Ellis and thought that Ebert himself was a pretty mediocre prospect. They got a lot of crap for it at the time... haha.

This draft is loaded. I'm praying that we're lucky enough to nab Drouin

Drouin, Erne, Carrier, Duclair oh and Mackinnon... I haven't seen this strong of a crop of prospects from the Q for a long long time

Unless it's a top 3 pick we're not getting Jones...

There's also Toews 2.0 Monahan, Shinakruk, Lazar, and Pulock who's outscoring the 2 WHL forwards

Keegan Kanzig is eligible this year along with Taylor Crunk and Luke Harrison. Crunk and Harrison are 6th-7th rounders but Kanzig should go high.



Hodges was picked by Florida in the 3rd round last year.
Is Kanzig the one that is 6'5" 240 ( or something like that )

Gogolev is a 93, he's an overager, meaning he won't get picked until the later rounds if at all.

Where would you guys rank local boy Nic Petan? Currently playing for the Winterhawks, and has 4 goals, and 8 points in 3 games. Not the biggest guy in the draft though...

Very shifty, like his style of play.

What about Eric Roy? Where's he slated to go?

Edit: And while I'm at it, how about Jackson Houck? Matt Needham?

I was more speaking hypothetically, or in the event of a complete missed season and we ended up with the top pick. I take MacKinnon over Jones 30 out of 30 times.

Meh, I'd rather add a franchise D than wing(Which Mackinnon would end up being on our team).

Even if it meant trading down a spot.

Why? He might start on wing but if he's halve as good as he's projected he'd be our 3C in 2 years. 2C in 3-4 years and our 1C in 5. Kesler can play wing and the Sedins won't be about forever. Nobody else we have comes close.

That'd be a good option if we wanted Jones anyway.

If we have the chance to draft McKinnon, I'd take it and run.
