How funny would it be if Nichushkin never comes over.

If somehow Ristolainen and Nurse are still available, who do you think we go with?

Probably Nurse but I'd take Risto.

The one Morrissey vote is BCF16. Right? RIGHT?!

(i wouldn't be opposed to trading back into the first to try and get him, Zad, or Pulock, if the circumstances were right -- and following this scenario, Nurse was selected at 11th)

Nurse reminds me too much of Coburn. Only difference is he has a bigger mean streak. We have Luke Schenn and Grosmann. We don't need anymore big nasty defenseman. Look at the teams who HAVE that scoring defensemen, the Letang, Karlsson "4th forward" if needed, there's only like 3 or 4 of these defensemen in the entire league, Pulock is the CLEAR choice after Seth imo. He's got great puck awareness, a heavy shot, great on his feet, hits the net with his shots, can throw the body well when he needs to, great looking stick to stick passes no matter the distance, he's the 4th forward on the ice or the hitting defensemen, all around player.

Thats his biggest problem and the reason why he is rated as a 10-15 player. His skating is pretty average at best. Seems to get beat a good amount when there are better skaters since he can't keep up with them. One of the main reasons that he scares me. If he had better defense and skating wasnt average he would be a top 5 pick. But like all players his weaknesses are what makes him not. Nurse is crazy athletic and can do it all. Skates well, hits, shoots, plays defense, etc etc. Only thing I can see people question is his "smarts".

In past years, being able to play the body was as significant as any skill that a defenseman had. Now days, it seems to matter less. If a defender does that, they're off to the sin bin. Skating, shooting and passing trumps strength in front of the net. Mobile guys are at a premium. Hopefully the Flyers see this and take it I not account when they make their selection.

It was me. I have a really good feeling about him. If we trade back and get him...all the better!

since I've given 2 days for the vote to take place(besides the blowout ones) I'm not gonna have time this year but next year I might try and shorten it to 24 hours and get close to being able to do a 2nd round. plus next year I will have extra time since playoffs start 2nd week of April

Incidentally, thanks for starting this multi-board thread, DeMo. It is indeed an original idea. I am shocked by the results so far, though, especially Monahan at 5th, Ristolainen at 8th, Shinkaruk 9th and Wennberg 10th.
I was surprised by some of these aswell Wennberg had 1 more vote then Nurse, but Risto, Shinkaruk, Monahan votes weren't really all that close

Nurse won't be there when we're drafting. If it's between huim and Pulock, I'll be pretty pissed if we pick Nurse, he's not what we need.

I got ya. I should have just said that I want Pulock, I agree with the other posters who feel we could use the offensive potential that he has. A good puck mover and a great powerplay shot sure would be nice.

I don't know. I picked Nurse simply because of his skating. Plus, I like his nastiness and am intrigued by what he could develop into. I don't want a guy who just has a good shot, Kurtis Foster has a good shot.
Nurse = Dion Phaneuf
Pulock = early Mike Green?

I have not been doing too much research so far, but the Nurse=Phaneuf comparison is EXACTLY what I have been thinking with the discussions I have been reading so far.

Have I missed something that leads to people believing Nurse will drop 11th?

Well, in this experiment, the team fanbases of picks 1-10 passed on him.

Its not likely that he does, but it isn't impossible either. It really only requires a run on forwards and one team taking someone like Zadorov or Ristolainen or Pulock or Morrissey or whoever over Nurse.

I could easily see 8 forwards going in the top 10: Mackinnon, Drouin, Barkov, Monahan, Nichushkin, Lindholm, Shinkaruk, and then a "reach" (and I use that term loosely) to someone like Wennberg or Gauthier.

Nurse.
Had Risto been there would have went with him 1st. Based on the board Nurse all the way.

Went Nurse.

My feelings have evolved to (amongst the defensemen):

Jones
Risto
Nurse
Pulock
Zadorov

That said, I still firmly believe that one of the higher rated forwards slides. I know that everyone disagees now and that's fine, but I could easily see one of Monahan or Lindholm being there at 11 instead of Nurse.

This mock seems fine with the only real surprise (to me) coming at 10.

Most of these kids won't be up for a of couple years anyway so you can't really say what we need. The roster will look different by the time they're ready. That's why you take what you think is the best player available not what you need.

Nurse isn't just defensive minded. He's good at both ends. Pulock might be really good offensively but he's poor defensively and has skating issues. The only real knock on Nurse is his hockey IQ.
