Draft: Players You Wanted

Hey Guys,

Taken off the Montreal board. I was curious if you guys could tell me who you had hoped we drafted in that draft year/and who we actually drafted that year. For me, I started paying attention to the draft in 2005.

2005:
Wanted: Kendal McArdle OR Andrew Cogliano
Drafted: Tukka Rask

2006:
Wanted: James Sheppard
Drafted: Jiri Tlusty

2007:
Wanted: Logan Couture (or Brandon Sutter)
Drafted: Traded this pick for Toskala

2008:
Wanted: Cody Hodgson
Drafted: Traded up for Luke Schenn (I thought he wouldn't be available when we selected)

2009:
Wanted: Brayden Schenn
Drafted: Nazem Kadri

2010:
Wanted: N/A (With no 1st round pick available)
Drafted: Traded this pick for Kessel

2011:
Wanted: Tyler Biggs or Matt Puempel
Drafted: Tyler Biggs

Wanted: Zack Phillips
Drafted: Stuart Percy

So you wanted Brayden Schenn even though he was gone when the Leafs drafted?

That's kind of strange.

I'm not going to lie -- Burke talked up such a big game I honestly thought he was going to do everything humanly possible to get Tavares in 2009.

I was praying for OEL but he got selected one spot ahead of us and we took Kadri. I wasn't too happy about that pick until I saw him tear it up the following year (2nd half more specifically) in London.

I guess Cowen or MPS was my choice once Schenn was off the board. But going in I was really hoping for Schenn. In fact I was kind of disappointed that we selected Kadri. But I knew nothing of Kadri and was overwhelmed by the Schenn brothers united hype. Now I am extremely glad we took Kadri.

I'll stick to players who were actually on the board when we drafted, because often my favourite players who I *THINK* might be available end up being taken before we pick (for example, I was pretty excited when McNeill and Beaulieu started falling last year, but they didn't make it all the way to us, same goes for Brayden Schenn in 2009).

2011
Wanted - Khokhlachev, Puempel, Saad and Morrow (would have liked any of them)
Drafted - Biggs and Percy

2010
N/A, no 1st round picks (had we had our pick, Seguin obviously)

2009
Wanted - MPS (thank god I'm not the GM)
Drafted - Kadri

2008
Wanted - Filatov (see MPS comment) or Hodgson
Drafted - Schenn

2007
N/A, no 1st round picks

2006
Wanted - Chris Stewart or Sanguinetti
Drafted - Tlusty

Watched this guy face the Wolves about a week or two ago.. He's completely dominating physically and all-around. He's been controlling the puck and just everywhere on the ice in the OHL this season. He's going to be a real good player, and he's playing on a bad, bad team.

Not necessarily. Sometimes we end up with someone better than we were hoping for. In my case Schenn over Hodgson and Kadri over Cowen/MPS

I think it would be more fun for people to post wherethey live and how many times they had actually seen these players play before saying how they wished the leafs would have drafted them.
