I'm sure Yzerman had his scouts watching him and he asked around about him, he may have just heard something he didn't like.

Not a Franco-Russian Alaskan.

Not sure what direction SFY goes with now in regards to our first pick. We still lack defensive prospects but the look of that core has changed with the additions of Aulie and Lee who are still young and will hopefully find permanent spots with our team. BPA is obvious, but if it comes down to Galchenyuk vs. Trouba it'll be interesting. Galchenyuk's situation is similar to Connolly's in 2010, and I doubt he'll drop pass Montreal/Buffalo/Carolina if they pick before us.

Panik, Namestnikov and Kucherov are all highly skilled forward prospects but Galchenyuk could be the eventual replacement for Lecavalier, as he continues to age. With all the picks we have, I can't wait to see what happens at the draft this year!

Offseason should be fun. I kind of hope we hang on to some draft picks but I'm also hoping we somehow fix the goaltending situation without giving up too much. Build up this team for the long run wouldn't upset me.

Honestly see TB's situation going as follows:

1st pick - Rielly
2nd pick - Subban/Vasilevski/Frk

2nd round - Samuelsson

Then I forget who most of the people are available ):

I'd like Dumba, Thrower and Subban for starters, but it looks like we won't be getting a lottery pick so I doubt Dumba will fall to us. The deals today have increased our chances of making the playoffs.

Frk should still be around when we pick 37-39, so I'd wait until then to draft him. Subban or Vasilevski would be amazing picks in the 27-30 range. I also would be extremely happy if we could trade this pick straight up for Cory Schneider's rights. Either one of Galchenyuk, Dumba, Rielly, Trouba or Reinhart would be an excellent pick in the 6-10 range.

Tanner Pearson, Ville Pokka, Hampus Lindholm, Andreas Athanasiou, Gianluca Curcurto, Patrick Sieloff, Henrik Samuelsson, Nick Ebert and Michael Matheson are all names that intrigue me in the 2nd round in addition to the aforementioned Frk.

Possibly, but 'The Alaskan Assassin' has 20 characters while 'Franco-Russian Alaskan' has 22.

Tom Wilson also intrigues me if he makes it to the 2nd round. He's my buddy's younger brother and he's got enough skill to play a 2nd-3rd line role in the NHL and he's got plenty of size, grit and physicality that we are lacking up front.
