Three strikes and you're contracted.

I'm torn on that result; I don't like to see the #1 team get it so they aren't rewarded for being so bad. OTOH, 3 in a row is a bit ridiculous. If you can't improve your team enough to get out of the bottom 5 with two straight first overalls you don't deserve another!

At least we didn't drop though, now I just want someone above us to pick up Forsberg and I'll be overjoyed at anyone we're likely to pick at 7 unless we reach for someone totally unexpected instead of just trading down.

I'm hearing a lot of interesting word choices from the TSN broadcasters.

"Embarrassment of riches for Edmonton."

There was another one that stood out, can't remember at the moment.

TSN said we get Reinhardt.

Ugh. I don't want a defensemen. Supercollapse was suppose to get us high enough to get a goal scorer.

I think if we dont swing a deal to move up, we should swing a deal and try to move down and pick mid first + late first.

Embarrassment is about right. If they bleep this up long term, well, that's some kind of unapproachable ineptitude.

Don't like what I've read of Reinhart. Like Dumba, Rielly, and Trouba over him.

Well, for me the draft was just the toilet flush to end this giant season of crap.

I wish I had not drank that wine the other day. I need it right now.

Why don't we want a D now?
Our D prospects are : Brodin........Seeler?
I know we haven't had a 'pure goal scorer' since gaborik, but it's not like D is a point of surplus for us.

Ya, maybe. Forgot about him. Based on everything I've read on him though, I just don't see him turning out to be anything but a reliable defenseman. While that's fine, I guess I'd rather look for high end play if they're taking a defenseman this highly.
