That, and I'm 99% sure you were there when I distinctly said I was taking Barkov at #2.
Not that it matters now, and I think Hlaverty did a great job running the draft, but I can vouch for the fact that LT wanted Barkov.



Ecstatic with our draft. Seth Jones and Adam Erne in the first round!

I've never even heard of the one of the guys I got with my other picks. I'm really questioning where that list came from, as it's one of the worst I've seen here.

Yeah, it's a particularly bad list.

IMO, the draft was run fine, the main problem was the terrible list as others have said.

It was run fine, my two complaints are that it was done too fast and the list.

If someone would like to help with a list next time then don't be afraid to step up, the list was posted WAY before the draft....

If someone had an issue they should have said something and we could have revised it

Everyone please calm down this game is supposed to be fun and in the last 2 days or so it has been very hostile, and I don't want it to be like this. That being said, if this continues I may have to take a Leave of absence from HF if this continues. Some of you may not care but if it means anything to anyone I would like the Angriness to stop

It's not my fault that you traded your best player in Pietro is it?

I like my D, everyone comes from the back end in the new NHL

Oh I know! I mean I traded Pietro and added Tyutin and Nikitin but you traded Bouwmeester AND Giordano AND Wideman and added..... Justin Schultz! Your top D-core versus the worst D-core in the league, I'm sorry I even brought it up.

same here i was on this morning and if it was mentioned it was to a small group as we are doing that other draft, I mean it's great that you volunteered but for us new guys the sudden notice is not the greatest.

Part of the problem I think is that some of us were online with the other draft of 20 teams

Hill at 10 was a joke, at least use the top 90 combined list that came out recently, more balanced

I am aware, but I feel like he was doing this under his own time constraints (this is an assumption), and not what was best for the league. I would've been more than happy to do it myself.

Also it's not like the new guys are angry, it's just a lil confusing trying to keep up with the sudden changes and constraints.

I asked continually in the chatzy about the draft ect.. and was told we are doing it alter then bam out for a couple of hours and everything is over.

I understand running anything sucks but can't the other side be seen here?

Sorry we got screwed over. I know you do a LOT for this game and its a huge task to conquer, but I think I have a reason to be pissed about the draft considering how important it was for my prospect pool and how it was handled.

Drouin for Barkov. Both teams would rather have had the other's prospect, so we're swapping.

Confirmed. After stating I wanted Barkov at 2nd, it was ignored. But I'm getting the guy I wanted so it's all good now.
