I wouldn't be upset with Poirier at 25. Ideally I would like him with one of the early 2nd rounders but if he's generating as much interest as Woodlief and others say...we wouldn't be able to wait that long. Yeah, I'd be fine with it.

With Dauphin, I'd like to get him at 36, but I won't cry myself to sleep if someone snaps him up before we get there. He's a guy I would wait around for, a little bit moreso than Poirier.

It changes often though. I'll have a different answer for you tomorrow.

No, none at all. That would be a dream scenario. Can't believe you got Hartman at 34.

As for Woodlief's comments, seems more like his thoughts on who the Habs might go for rather than actual info/sources. I remember last year on draft day he went on Tony's show and claimed we could be picking Morgan Rielly at 3, it took about 20 minutes for Grant to come here and say that it wasn't even a possibility.

I'm not a fan of this strategy. I'd rather get some guys who love to fight instead and let the other team have guys like them and then we beat the stuffing out of them.

So you want a team full of enforcers and goons? You want to pick a guy that fights in the 1st round and waste our pick la McIlrath? No. Lazar at the 25th spot is more than a good pick. Btw, Lazar is never scared to drop the gloves, even against bigger opponents, just ask Darnell Nurse.

We could consider Diaby in later rounds, other than that, the previous poster did a great job taking Lazar and Hartman.

I know this may be a polarizing opinion but.... I've got a feeling we may get a good player with one of our picks this draft. Stay tuned for updates.

Unfortunately, you are dreaming if you believe Morin will be available at 25. He will have been picked, interviewed and have left the building long before we draft at 25. And as I have repeatedly posted, it will not be worth the price to move up the approximately 15 spots to draft him. Particularly in this draft. I still believe, despite the ridicule that I have endured over the last 30 days, that Morin will be a top 10 pick. I see him as having one of the highest upsides of any player in this draft and it appears that more and more 'professional' mock drafts/draft listings are agreeing with this assessment. His size, mobility and performance at the U18s make him one of the most intriguing prospects. It's funny how things go. Just last month on the Bruins' Board they were debating if they should take Morin with their pick at the end of the second round. It was a very informed discussion.

1st pick...Horvat or Mantha or Gauthier or Morissey
2nd(34th)...Poirier
2nd(36)...Dauphin
2nd(55)...Bailey
3rd....Bjorkstrand
3rd...Diaby

We can't let Poirier or Dauphin be picked right out of our backyard...they could easily become the next Patrice Bergeron...they have tremendous skill level...and compete hard.

Well, these two guys are not soft. Imagine in 3-4 years, you might have a third line of Mike Fisher (Lazar) - Brad Marchand (Hartman).

Waiting for the #35 pick to be made, then I'm thinking Mirco Mueller or Steven Santini. Take a look at the board in this link.

Strong, tough to play against, reliable.

Interesting. Will say though, I would have taken Burakowsky at 25 if he were there, love Lazar, but a tall sniper like Burakowsky would be tough to pass on. Also like Rychel more than Lazar. Crazy D run causing all these great forward prospects to slip. Hope it happens for real!

As for what to do at 36, I'm forward hungry, and I'd probably go with Buchnevich or Poirere, or maybe McCarron.

I don't think Bjorkstrand makes it to the 3rd round, I also don't think there's a chance Bailey is there at #55.

It is possible. Bjorkstrand is offensively talented but has major questions about his ability to transfer into a more physical pro level. Still, his offensive potential starts to get scare by the middle of the second so he'll probably go between #45-80.

If we came out of the draft with those guys, I think we should just start planning the parade in 2017. That would be an incredible haul.

This is one of those drafts where I can't get exited for any of our potential first rounders Make it a home run swing. (Mantha)

Mueller, Zykov, Erne, Pulock, McCoshen...there are teams that will want these guys more and will trade their second rounders.

Oilers need Pulock badly and that will give us five total picks in the second and two back to backs!

34-Dauphin

36-DelaRose
37-Laplante

55-Dano
56-Diaby

Would be my picks.

I expected us to draft Poirier, but don't act surprised when we only get one of those two. Yes we 'can' let them be picked out of our backyard. It happens.

IMO opinion this is a draft where Im excited about every single pick. In any other year there are probably 20 guys going in the 2nd round who would be 1st rounders.

You wouldnt like lazar and Hartman at 25 and 34? They are both supposed to be gone before our picks.

Because they arent fighters.

2nd round is way more exciting. I just can't see the difference between our first round pick and our seconds.

There is a lot of insider info that even Woodlief isn't privy to, so I agree, we have to exercise critical judgment and arrive at our own conclusions.

One thing that stood out for me was the comment about Dauphin, since it appeared to go beyond his personal projection. He intimated that he had knowledge that certain teams at the end of the round, were targeting him. It may not play out that way, but if I'm looking at what we know today, I'd give him the benefit of the doubt on that and assume that if we really want Dauphin, we'll have to either use our first rounder or acquire a second late first rounder, to guarantee him.

The always intangible question -- how badly do the Habs want him. If, as Woodlief suggests, he has knowledge that more than one team is targeting Dauphin with its end of first round pick, then there is a fair chance that the Habs also have him high on their list.

There are indications (FWIW) that Poirier and Dauphin will be first rounders.

X-Factor might be Horvat. Moving up 15 spots or so, to secure Horvat, is quite the investment.

Wondering if instead of using draft picks, we might not be able to get it done just trading players we already own.

Morin wont be there #25. So I would go for:

#26: Any of Erne, Morrissey or McCoshen.
#34: Morgan Klimchuk; Left Wing
#36: Robert Hagg; Defense
#55: Jacob De La Rose; Centre
#71: Phillipe Derosiers; Goaltender
#86: Hudson Fasching; Right Wing

Others is a crapshoot.
