Our picks from today are a good 2-3 years away, but with the crop of prospects ready to step up (or close) it allows us to take a chance on these players and let them develop properly.

I wouldn't be surprised if Sami has a couple of pounds on him, though. Kid looked really lanky.

Agreed. When you draft well and have depth you aren't forced to play young players who aren't ready to try and fill a need(DSP as an example).

The Ducks could stand to take a page out of Detroit's book and build some depth so they aren't forced to rush guys along that aren't ready. Lets hope that is the case.

Looks that way. Theodore seems to be one of the better examples of a high risk/high reward pick in this draft, and being able to do that is a luxury of our excellent drafting up to this point. We're clearly not afraid to take things slow and get some guys who are a bit away.

It's good news if anyone was ever worried that Murray might even consider trading Gibson.

He might. You can never really get a good read on player's real sizes. But according to Wikipedia (endorsed by college students and graduates everywhere ) Shea is 170 and Sami is 163.

This is a stupid thing to nitpick, but he had an awkward slouch.

They say that for every draft pick. These are mostly 17/18 year old's after all.

I don't think Luongo wants to be in Vancouver to be honest, actively shopped for over a year by Vancouver who said they want to trade him, then all of a sudden they trade Schneider instead and say Luongo is their 'guy'? Yeah I don't think the goaltending situation will be pretty in Vancouver next season.

Upon learning that the Ducks' didn't draft him in accordance to Sojourn's and Vipers31's call in the HF moderator mock draft, Tommy Vannelli had a hard time hiding his disappointment. (Farewell, sweet prince. )

Even if the prospects are projects and need 2-3 years, then next draft, you grab prospects that might need 1-2 years. Then you have an influx of youngsters bumping into your nhl squad as one big wave.

He probably had to choose which kind of shootouts he'd want to deal with for the rest of his professional career...

In my opinion you don't want that.

It would be better to have a couple prospects getting into the line each year. As players get older a couple more come in to keep a cycle of good players.

Having all prospects ready at once would create to many players for too few openings and some promising prospects would have to be traded. It is better for the prospects and for the continued success of the team to always having good players at each level of development rather then all in one spot.
