I definitely can. There's a chance a guy like Burakowski is there at 25. There is pretty much zero chance that Burakowsky will be there in the second.

Take Mueller.

If the Habs end up with Lazar, Hartman and Mueller with the first three picks, it will be a coup.

I just don't want to end up with a 3rd line forward with little offense, a 4th line grinder, or a bottom pairing D with our 1st Round pick... I don't have any No Drafts. Just make sure anyone they pick actually projects as a hockey player. For example if they decide to pick McCarron, I expect that Timmins feels the odds are stacked on the side of his finishing abilities and hockey sense carrying to the pro ranks, that they don't expect it's just a long shot...

We all know that more than 9 out 10 energetic forwards on the small side with some offense don't become Callahan... We all know more than 9 out of 10 big bodied forward that can fight and skate don't become Lucic (alot more that 9 out of 10 actually)... Don't mess it up please.

I agree.. Burakowsky is one of the few high-end offensive players that may slip because of some teams' considering him a risk. That's the beauty of having multiple picks. We have the luxury of taking a 'risk' on a player that has a high ceiling but may not reach it. For those who want us to make a 'safe' pick, I would reply, why are we trying to draft a player who will play on the 3rd line or be a 5th defenceman? How will such a player measurably improve the fortunes of this team? With the lowering of the cap there will be more players like that available through free agency than you can shake a stick at. At the coming draft we should be swinging for the fences and choosing those players that we deem have the highest upside. The ones that have the possibility to be game breakers. I don't want us to be drafting potential NHL players; I want us to draft potentially impactive NHL players. If only one or two turn out as hoped, this will be a good draft for us.

Just Lazar and anyone else would be a coup.

With 25/34/36, I want:

- At least 1 significant offensive talent.
- At least 1 big man up front who is known to play big.
- At least 1 local product. The media will go nuts if we don't select one in such a good year for the Q and if the good ones (Dauphin and Poirier mainly, maybe M-O Roy) go before our next pick at 55, which could lead to a Duclair being overdrafted.

Obviously a player could represent 2 of these criterias.

Looks like that's a reasonable request given the talent at that part of the draft, in fact, there's quite a few prospects that would tick at least 2 of those boxes.

Would love to get a big future 3rd or 4th line centre, a big, crash-the-net winger who can score and hit, and some more high end skill. Would be good to add to our very weak goaltending depth too.

Wouldn't be the end of the world if we grabbed Fucale. Seriously, we have no one in our system at all and haven't since Halak and Price graduated.

I must agree with you totally. Tremendous hockey sense...player of the game in the Orr/Cherry prospects game...also, the best player in the finals between Canada and US under 18 game. Timmins should make Dauphin and Poirier a priority on draft day.

Yup. And for this organization, an elite goal scoring winger, a 40 goal type, is the biggest need within the entire organization. There are two guys who could fall to 25 that could fulfill that need IMO. Mantha and Burakowsky. Sure both could bust, but with 3 second rounders, and 2 3rd rounders, I say swing for the fences. Both have shades of Kovalchuk, tall snipers who can skate and score in bunches.

Having watched Dauphin only briefly, it is clearly visible how elite his skating ability is. Moreover, his hockey sense, intensity and willingness to go to the dirty areas, project him as a two-way center at the pro level. What makes him intriguing is that he has so much room to grow physically.

You know the draft is close when kids like Poirier and Dauphin get rated as first rounder and players like Lazar fall to the end of the first

THIS PLACE IS GOING NUUUUUTS!

no criterias... we need the players that will help this team the most, period.

Amazing that he doesn't have better numbers, he looks dominant in that video. Dickinson/Bailey/Baptiste are all very intriguing potential 2nd rounders out of OHL for us. They've all battled inconsistency and gone through cold stretches, but the talent they have is clearly 1st round caliber.

Those player can be really dominant when they're on their game. Just like one of our own Bourque

Oh my! Patches would skate rings around this guy.In fact, here's a test for you: use Patches speed as your marker for selecting a top 50 forward pick.Patches was fast and smooth when drafted.Dickinson, like Gauthier, lacks that speed.

If we want fast forwards in our top 3 picks, then it's Lazar, De La Rose and Burakowsky.The later two could compare very nicely to Patches.

Basing yourself on highlights vid will get you a good team!

Dickinson uses his speed like Cole does, its not his game to run around like Tom Pyatt
