Sportsnet one and TVA Sports showing Baie-Comeau @ Halifax Game 1 tonight.

7 legit 2013 draft prospects on the ice by my count. Main point of interest will be Zykov for me.

What has Zykov done to jump up the rankings so quickly? Same question for Wennberg. Just curious.

I had the chance to see the 4th game between Portland and Kamloops and the 2 best players on the ice were Petan and Ranford. It was the only time I saw Petan live and he was very impressive. I saw Ranford 3 or 4 times this year and he was the best player by far for Kamloops. (I only include info about Ranford because the Habs invited him to camp last year but not sure if he is still in their plans). Bozon was not impressive any of the 3 or 4 times I saw him play. I don't want Petan in 1st rd but if he was available in 2nd with one of our choices, I'd be happy to have him. Seems like a non stop skater/worker with skill.

A few hat tricks, i believe.

I think Andrighetto is better and we would not have to blow our 1st pick for him.

While I do think Andrighetto is good, he is one year older than Zykov.

"What does it cost to trade up?" - http://www.broadstreethockey.com/201...lue-trading-up

Some fun stuff to play with, given the Habs' picks this year. Of those valued at least "2" on his chart, we already know we have picks #34, 36 and 71. Our top pick could end up anywhere from 23 to 30.

How far would Nichushkin or Mantha have to fall before it's worth trading up? Could the Isles' #15 pick be a target, as they don't have a 2nd rounder and Snow has traded down in the past? Or the Sens' (*spits*) pick?

Halifax wasn't exactly welcoming, the Drouin hit from behind should have been 5 and a game.

Are you suggesting all those picks for the Isles' pick?

Just finished watching the recording.

I thought Zykov was good again. Could have easily had 2 goals. Strong on the puck and really skilled, was even succeeding at spinoramas in tight areas.

Fucale was fantastic in net, made several huge saves when the game was close. Several against Zykov.

Really disappointed by Grégoire in this one.

Drouin will have to either add some series bulk or tone down his physical side if he wants to avoid injuries in the NHL. He can get away with playing like that against kids, but in the big league he'll be in trouble.

I agree completely. Drouin had a huge hit before that and then came down with a really stupid hit from behind.

How would anyone rank these 5?

McCarron, Carrier, Dauphin, Poirier and Compher? Lets say they were available with our early 2nds.

So where is Mads Eller suppose to be picked? Would love to get him, him and Lars have similar stature and apparently Mads has some skill too.

He in all likelihood will not be drafted. He's unranked in every sense. I think we should take him 7th.

He's pretty bad. Nowhere near Lars. Like Hossa.

To me...Compher and Poirier are only 2 I would draft in second round. Compher likely ahead of Poirier. Carrier would be ahead of Dauphin if both available in later rounds.

Tough one...some pretty close prospects there in my estimation. I'd probably go:

1. Compher
2. Dauphin
3. McCarron
4. Poirier
5. Carrier

But I wouldn't have an issue going with McCarron ahead of Dauphin or Poirier ahead of Dauphin.

Carrier would clearly be the 5th guy.

This has nothing to do with the discussion, but I'm not really following the draft prospects this year. Can someone update me with the best power-forwards in this draft? And what position they would be going at? A la Iginla give or take.

Really? I would think all of them are 2nd rouund picks.

4. Dauphin
5. Carrier

Diaby may never play in the NHL, he could be a solid #5-6 like McQuaid or a career minor leaguer, high bust potential IMHO.

Bottom line, winning in the NHL you need all elements, skilled and buising players up front and on defense and a top goalie. Drafting 5-6 big stay at home d-men is not a shortcut to winning a cup.
Who said anything about drafting 5-6 defencemen or are you trying to control the flow of information to get a point across, if so just blurt it out please? Having a big defenceman that can skate, make a good breakout pass and deliver a hit without getting caught out of position is a must for each defence pairing IMO. The Habs if they can draft a few big forwards to blend in on the top nine,(Power forwards with a little nastiness) San Jose, Boston, Toronto will just have to learn to be intimidated by the Habs.

Yeah, of course, somebody ask one of the toughest question out there for me....AFter the usual suspects, Poirier who was amongst my top 5 favorite this year and a Q player, or Compher who is also in my top 5 and Michigan bound....Somehow, I think you ask that question so I wouldn't sleep properly tonight.....

I'll go with.....geez....I don't know man.....okay.....Comrier or Poipher. I'll go with Poirier. But just slightly ahead...really slightly. Honestly, couldn't care less if the scenario happens adn we go with one or another.

Then, it's a little easy for me. Not exactly a big McCarron fan who I believe is overrated in this board solely 'cause of his size. So I,ll go with Carrier, Dauphin and McCarron.

Carrier is so underrated it's great for us....hoping Timmins find him great as well.
