3 more points in the 2 Bulls wins this weekend for Jordan Subban. Now up to 48 points in 58 games; just 8 points off of PK's amount in his draft year.

How many teams give up their best player by a fair margin for a 1st round pick ? Never happens and theres a point to that.

I would use our 2nd, 2nd rounder on him. not sure where he fits in the draft, but he's a high risk high reward type. he'll either have it or won't, but looking at his brothers I would be willing to take the risk.

Maybe Kekalainen would want to have his Lars Eller back with him. We could make a package deal to acquire their 1st overall or one of their 2 other 1st rounders to pick up any top 10 leftovers. Just to add a Barkov type of player to the organization would be tremendous

Kekelainen's not stupid. Those 3 first rounders could be huge in finally getting the Jackets back on track. The're going to cost a mint.

Just because Kekalainen drafted Eller doesn't mean he's obsessed with him. The Blue Jackets are actually pretty deep when it comes to two way centers, considering how many other needs they have, they have nothing to gain from trading those picks for Eller, just because Eller was one of many guys drafted by their GM.

Anismov isn't quite the same player Eller is but he makes him redundant.

Does anyone think MB has the skills and resourses to pull of a move or two to put us in position to draft Drouin? French Star Power players dont come around to often and hed go great with the Gally's.

If so what would it cost us? Would it be worth it?

The way he dangled the puck at full speed was very impressionning. He is really good in all three zone. He is dominant with the puck in the neutral one and he created several turnovers in the defensive zone. The complete package. Definitely a mid-round pick !
That's MY darkhorse pick

Short answer, no he does not.

The Habs don't get a divine right to top 3 picks just because they parle français, so unless you want to trade Subban or something, trading up to the top 3 is near impossible. And at this point I can't see Drouin dropping below 3, unless Mackinnon and Barkov both do something extraordinary.

This draft has a reputation and no team is going to lose out on a top 6 or so pick unless they get something special.

The good news is this is the deepest Q draft class in a long time, so the Habs should get at least one, and probably more, good Québécois prospects out of this draft. But Drouin right now is putting up ridiculous numbers in a flashy way, he's not dropping.

Pittsburgh had to trade Jordan Staal to get the 8th overall pick in 2012.
Philadelphia had to trade Jeff Carter to get the 8th overall pick in 2011.

I know there were other pieces involved in those trades but generally speaking...you're looking at moving a pretty big name if you're hoping to get into the top 10. And that was just for the 8th overall pick - if we want the 3rd overall pick where we might have a chance at Drouin, who knows how much more it would cost. I think we'd have to start with Subban, like ELB said.

3 first mock drafts by NHL.com:

3 different picks: Horvat, Dickinson or....Subban. At this point, between those guys, for me it's quite easy. Horvat.

The obsession with Drouin is sickening on these boards.

Those mocks made my head hurt. Ouf, are they bad or what? Ristolainen 30th in the one where we pick Subban.

Oh my, Wennberg in not even 1 of these mocks either. haha,

One has zadorov 26, the other 14 and the other is not even in the first round....

Ristolainene at 29... Available and we draft Subban.... They don't know squat.

Didn't Willy Palov report that Gauthier won the agility skating competition at the top prospects game practice?

I had read it was a strength, haven't seen him much.

Excited to see him on sportsnet on friday.

Zadorov in not even listed as a 1st round pick in this one. Kind of hard to have any credibility.

Yeah it was a joke, I was referring to when Feaster said he got the best player from the 2012 draft, so I am hoping that Timmins can get us a good player near the end of the first round.

He is EASILY the most dynamic offensive player available in the draft.

If we pick around the 20-30 range what does everyone think of Robert Hagg? 6'2 200 pound dman from MODO

He's a draft genius. I doubt he'll trade away a 1st rounder unless he gets more 1st rounders in return.

Gauthier putting up numbers and being big can draw a lot of attention for himself.
