Do you know what's in a White Russian? To me, they've always sounded gross.

Yep. Vodka and Milk. Sounds kinda gross, but I don't have a sense of smell so who knows. Might turn out awesome for me.

White Russians taste like melted ice cream. Fun for a while... But you'll have to give your toilet an apology card the next day.

white russians are absolutely delicious..trust me. Black russians on the otherhand, not so much.

Back on topic: If grigs falls to us and we aren't taking him, we best be trading down...

White Russians are good if made properly. We also have the "Chernobyl" variation, which is 1/2 mint vodka, 1/4 milk and 1/4 cream. Absolutely awesome.

I urge to get hold of Salmiakki Koskenkorva if you can, though. One of the best shots ever. Downside is that it tends to create biblical hangovers, as do many other shots.

There's also the White Russian's counterpart - the Black Russian.

What this draft lacks in terms of high quality talent it makes up for in solid in my opinion. Honestly the Wild need to go defenseman all the way unless Grigorenko happens to fall to 7, i'm not nutz on the guy but they shouldn't just dismiss him either.

However the defenseman i want in order that hopefully will be available at 7 are: Reinhart, Trouba, Dumba, Reilly, Maata, honestly though, don't think Fletcher can go wrong here.

Pens fan here looking for some help. Can anybody who went to the draft last year and actually paid attention tell me some former players/coaches who were there? I know obviously every team will have their head coach and GM's, but what about some other notables from around the league?

Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

Why Reinhart first? He's the last one I want of those five.

Rielly, Trouba, Maatta, Dumba, Reinhart.

I really like Dumba. What are some negatives about him? From what I have read it seems like an all around monster out there.

I like all the top5 D draftees. I'd possibly take Rielly first and Dumba second but after them it really doesn't matter for me.

I think I'd take Trouba, Reilly, or Dumba if all the other forwards up to Tuevu are off the board, and only then would I look at Grigorenko as our man.

Some of the stuff I've heard about him worries me, but there's no denying the skill is there. Plus, his interview answer about people calling him lazy may just be something lost in translation. I've heard a lot of young Russians over the years giving interviews in English and saying something that didn't come out right. Most foreign players interviews (and people's perceptions of the players) seem to improve the longer they are here, and the better they get at the language. Radulov not withstanding.

BTW, all you White Russian lovers, if you like Bailey's Irish Cream as well, you should switch out the half n half one time for it and see if you like it. It's called an Iron Butterfly, and it will mess you up! I don't recommend more than one in a night. Also, don't do 3/4 shot Kahlua in that, do a half shot instead.
