Ya, it's time to load up on forwards. Remember when we had no defencemen in the system and we had wingers coming out of our ears? Exact opposite now, and Lou needs to get on it.

Seems like a recycled article from 2012, 2011....2010:

Quote:
The good news is there’s some high-end young talent available in the 2013 NHL draft – Nathan MacKinnon, Seth Jones and Jonathan Drouin at the head of the class – for the bottom-feeders to feast on. The bad news? Contrary to popular belief, the 2013 draft isn’t nearly as deep as scouts initially projected the past couple of seasons.

Drafts are never as good as originally forecasted. That's a shocker.

Well come on down.

My prediction is that we draft Lazar/Hartman in the first and that's not because both of them are right handed.

I still think this draft is deeper than 2011, and much deeper than 2012. Brady Skjei should never have sniffed a 1st round in a normal year. Same with Matteau, although he has progressed very well and exceeded my expectations from his play last year.

Frederik Gauthier is starting to grow on me. He'd be a real solid pick and kind of reminds me of Zajac a little. If he can slide, I'd take him in a heartbeat.

Just for fun, I took a look at a mock draft and they have us taking Curtis Lazar with the 29th overall pick. The Blue Jackets are leaving that draft like bandits with the #2 and #3 overall picks wich got them the "Halifax duo" of MacKinnon and Drouin.

That would be unreal for that franchise, actually hope it happens.

I was going to post a premature mock as well, but the standings are still very much fluid by the day. I expect the Kings to start picking up some steam which would push that Columbus pick lower.

With the hiring of Jarmo Kekalainen, I'm curious to see if he might be tempted to take Alexander Barkov over MacKinnon. Albeit Kekalainen already said he might be biased against Finnish players.

I was joking about Domi but I kinda like the kid and would be ok with him. Still intrigued by Mantha. Haven't seen enough of him.

If the Kings finish near the bottom, it'll be so sweat to see Columbus at the podium with their pick but like you said, I doubt it'll happen.

Regardin Lazar, his stock has dropped in the past couple of months and I just wanted to get your pov on him. I think he can be a solid pick for us if he does drop in the mid to late 20's. His production isn't all that great this year but I think he's a very well rounded hockey player.

With the way Lou is trading picks recently, this thread may become irrelevant.

It would have been amusing to see what the Islanders would have done last year had Columbus accepted their Ditka-esque trade offer (entire draft for #2). I would have been amused if their entire contingent just got up and left after the pick.

Looks like this could be the Draft Logo for NJ.

Impressive but what a nice way to ruin great highlights with some bumping techno music ****. I knew from the 1st second where it's coming from.
Russians can't stop to put these songs in their hockey videos. Tchaikovsky must be turning in his grave.

Lazar would be awesome, but I bet he climbs higher by the end of the year.

I wouldn't be disappointed at all picking Goldobin. I have no idea where he's projected to go yet. He has some experience playing with Reid Boucher.
