Morrissey leads the charge:
Quote:
Josh Morrissey (D, 2013), Prince Albert

Puck-moving d-man has made an impression in his draft year .. very good skater with a good push-off two-step quickness .. his first pass is usually on the money, tape-to-tape .. improved his strength, which helps with defensive body position when protecting the puck from opposing forwards, this enables him to take the advantage when moving the puck out of his own zone .. works hard and likes jump into the play on offensive rushes and adds a scoring threat element .. defensively, his gap- space control and judgement could be improved as he sometimes will get caught out of position .. his shot needs work, but he takes his time to look for the shooting lanes, but needs more control and greater velocity .. delivers good body checks, and will pay the price to make a play, including blocking shots .. his back skating and pivot turns are fluid .. sees the ice well, and reads plays with good vision and hockey sense .. he plays in all key situations, including the power-play and penalty kill units .. talented enough to be considered to go in the first round of this year’s draft.
In short, he has an offensive defenseman tool-set, but is in need of some fine-tuning defensively.

Eh, Darcy's identified and been willing to move pieces to get up in the draft. He did it with Paille and with Myers prior to the Girgensons deal. He's moved up, and traditionally in the area where teams move up -- outside the top 10.

If Regier moves up, I hope he uses 2nd rd picks or later and/or a roster player like Stafford to do it. I really don't see the use of trading both #8 and #16 when there will be quality players at least up to #20 or so. OTOH, Regier might want to figure out a way to get the best player possible (probably at #5) as a way to prove to Vanek that the re-build will be a short one, so he (and maybe Miller) re-signs. I just hope using both 1sts isn't the way to make that happen.

Carolina needs a d-man and Buffalo might want to move up (for Monahan?). What seems to be a more plausible trade scenario with Carolina?

1. Myers and #38 for #5?
2. Myers and #16 for #5 (and something else?)
3. #8 and #38 for #5?
4. #8 and #16 for #5?

Do you switch out Myers for another d-man or does Carolina say no to the whole d-corps?

I'm all for moving up, but those first two and the last are insane. If you are moving Myers+, you had better get into the top 3.

I think some have posted that Rutherford has stated that he is not trading his pick.

Regardless, it seems like there is pressure to win now (or at least that is their direction - trade for Staal, signing Semin). So your following points makes sense for them:

1. trading for an established Dman
2. our 8th pick (they can still pick up a good defenseman here and another asset)

Nichushkin signed a new 2 year contract with Dynamo Moscow, he could fall pretty far in the draft now. So who are the NHL ready scoring wingers that will be around at 8? Needed a winger when we had Pomer, will need three if we trade Vanek :|

Wasn't he already signed for the next 2 years? Are you saying he's extended it out to 4 years?

Dynamo bought his contract for $10 million, which voided his deal. KHL rules are different, so he had to sign a new contract with Dynamo under the same terms. The KHL signing thread has the story linked.

He wouldn't have to be signed for two years anyways, although the obvious questions of whether he would sign another contract in the KHL.

What "good" defnesemen do we have whose value you'd peg only as 3 spots in the draft?

I thought I read that Poile won't move #4, Feaster won't move #6 unless he's moving up, and that maybe Rutherford would move down because a top d-man prospect would still be available around #8-#12. I think what I read about Carolina has just been speculation though, except the part abut wanting to improve the defense (by draft or trade/UFA).

Aside from Carolina (who still hasn't ever completed a trade with Buffalo as the Whalers or Canes) I don't see how Buffalo could move up without a losing deal.

Those first two options were for #5 and keeping #8, with the second option being if Carolina added from their end. I agree about the 4th option. I don't want to do that but I wondered what others thought.

What if you looked at it from another angle, would you trade 16 and leopolds rights for 12?

Sorry, how I wrote it doesn't make it clear.

I meant it makes sense for the Canes (not necessarily for the Sabres).

If they're not going to use #16 to move up, then they should acquire some proven talent with it.

"Transform Bad to Ekblad". Time for a t-shirt I think.

So thoughts on Taylor Cammarata in middle rounds? I'm sure someone's brought him up, probably why his name is stuck in my mind. At this point, size-bias is against him, but for a team needing all sorts of options and likely about a year away (or less) from kicking one of it's last midgets to the curb *cough*Gerbe *cough*, do they look at him if he's around at 55? 69? 94 (hockey gods willing)?

What' wrong with just making the pick? It's a deep draft, and there are a lot of prospects I'd be excited about getting there. There are some projects with huge upside, there are some big, high character guys. If we want to move picks for players, we have a extra 2nds this and next year that we could package up (maybe along with a player or prospect) to get it done.

Agreed. Take the picks. It's a deep draft, there are some talking about the quality extending even into the second round. Take the picks. Make the picks.

If you really thought anything else would happen, I have a bridge to sell you.

Also, you don't draft to fill your current roster, this isn't the NFL.

We lack scoring wingers in our prospect pool outside of Armia, so NHL ready or not, the point remains that we need more talented wingers.

Personally, I hate the idea of Shinkaruk at 8. To think that the reward for putting up with this season will be Hunter Shinkaruk makes me a little depressed. Not that he's a bad player, but I doubt he's a game changer.

They need more talent, period. The also don't have much applied size, are weak in finishers, and have a relative lack of speed throughout their prospect pool.

But the point remains, this team should not be concerning itself with drafting for immediate need, especially that early in a quality draft class.
