Well I don't know why we just wasted our 1st rounder on a potential 4th line guy. So far this pick gets a D- , every fkn team is getting better, too bad.

Hmm, not sure how one can say it's 'terrible'...what would be your selection? He was ranked 34th by McKenziee and 35th on CSS. It's in theory a bit of a reach but it's not like it's off the board.

Why didn't we just take him in the second round?

Well, people wanted more size...

High risk, high reward.

Wonder if he goes to West Michigan with Andy Murray or London?

I agreed, we should let you choose from now on.

What experience do you have in that field ?

Could end up a Looch, or a dooch.

His size alone means he can game in the NHL, so the only risk here is how well he evolves his skating and vision in the coming years.

Kids in this draft are '95s?!? Ugh.

Well, he's meaty alright.

Now, the question is, can he become good enough at hockey to make it to the NHL?

We'll have to wait 4 years to know, I guess.

Not so sure about Bergevin's suit either

Size doesn't mean skill, and he doesn't have much upside. He's a projected 4th liner, don't fool yourselves in thinking he's going to develop into a top 6. I don't know whoever said he was a top 6 guy, he has a weak shot, and his skating/stick handling are average to below average.

I will take Grant at his word.

Should be a good selection and maybe we will get some more skilled guys with the next two selections.

I like his size, but I also said that about Lindsay Vallis, Brent Bilodeau and Terry Ryan.
I hope this kid doesn't end up on the scrap heap with those three.

Me thinks Timmins saw untapped offensive potential in this guy. Not to say that he'll be a sure fire top 6 player, but if he pans out to be a Lucic-lite, I'd be more than happy.

Yeah, you guys go complain about that.
By the time he is able to even play for us we likely wont even need what he brings. Bottom 6 player book it. Wouldn't doubt him being a career AHL player

People should know I'm a fan. Took him in 2nd round of Habs board mock. Hope he plays in London.

Nothing but good things about him here. Sounds like what we need -- a big guy who plants himself in front of the net and is hard to move. And he's a kid -- so, weight-wise, he's gonna get bigger.

Addressing needs.

That's what a draft is for.

I approve of this pick. We have plenty of smaller prospects.
