So if at next years 2013 draft the BPA was a defenseman, say Jones or Pulock and all of the high end centres were taken, Given our strength at D how would you feel about drafting him?

Yea for sure. I'd take Jones preferably over almost everyone in the draft. Maybe not MacKinnon

Of course. You don't leave Pulock or Jones on the board because of position. BPA is BPA.

If it gets to the point 5 years from now that we have a log jam on the backend, young defenseman are like gold for trading and could easily net us a quality centre.

If we do draft say Jones for example, at that point our D pool would start to get ridiculous lol

Ughhh what

But yeah, a part of me really wants Jones because he'd be such a sick player for us.

I'd probably choose Jones over everybody else besides Mackinnon

I know, reading over the title I'm like: WTF did I just type!? anyways yeah It would be incredible to get Jones. I would prob place him #2/3 out of the prospects I want.

We're you trying to type this?

"If at the 2013 draft the BP was a defenseman how would you feel about that?"

If so I don't get how you mess it up as bad as you did

Imagine if we kept all our best D instead of trading 1 or two away if we got Jones.

Rielly - Phaneuf
Gardiner - Jones

That'd be sick

If by the time the Leafs pick and most of the centres are gone, that would mean the Leafs would pick around the 15th pick possibly. That could be way too far for someone like Jones and Pulock. Could still get a decent player but none of the top players that people have been eyeing all year.

I hope we find our way into the top 5 or 10 in the end.

You should be able to edit the title. Try double clicking just above it when viewing the Leafs page.

But yes I'm a strong believer in taking BPA, especially when you have a high pick.

Always go for BPA no matter what. All prospects are currency either for your team or in trade. You don't want to lose out on a star because he plays a position that you think you're deep at.

In two or three years that would be a lethal group.

Not sure, actually. Last year Burke said "this might be one instance where we choose positional need over BPA", meaning (I'm inferring) that if Galchenyuk was on the board at 5 AND Rielly, he would have taken Galchenyuk based on positional need.

I'd think something similar would happen next year. It really depends on the gap between Jones and, say, Barkov. I haven't seen both enough to make an educated decision, but that #1C has been missing forever. BUT. That franchise defender is also missing. If Seth Jones can be that, then I take him 10 times out of 10.

All this being said, we probably won't get a top 3 pick.

If it's Jones then we should take him no question, but nobody else really that I would do it for. BPA is very subjective too, and once you get past the top 5-10, it becomes very opinionated with no clear answers.

mynhldraft.com has the Leafs taking Curtis Lazar at #12 overall.

What would everyone think of that?

Trying to figure out how mynhldraft.com came up with the Leafs drafting 12th more than who it decided to pick at this point.

I'd prefer a center, but I could deal with someone like Jones.

BPA is so subjective Burke could take a forward and say in all honesty hes BPA.

Look at the massive freak out last year when we took Rielly instead of Forsberg. Seems like a good choice to me

I know its wayyyy too early, but I would take Barkov over Jones. Physically the most complete player in the draft, great scoring touch, responsible in all 3 zones, and beat up the Americans 5-1. Anyways I see it coming down to us getting a top 10, Barkov should be gone top 3. We should draft the BPA, unless its a cant miss like Monohan/Shinkaruk/Drouin are still on the board.

How I see it going down (how it ahould go down):

1. CBJ - Mackinnon
2. TML - Barkov
3. CGY - Jones (might hurt Flames fans feelings, but always draft BPA)
4. NYI - Drouin
5. EDM - Lindholm
6. MTL - Monohan
7. TBL - Shinkaruk
8. COL - Pullock
9. BUF - Domi
10. WSH- Duclair
