So a MTL fan watched Grigo play and thinks he's a floater and stuff? I think I'd take scouts opinions over an MTL fan. They'll pick Grigo. Especially if they are going to name Roy as their GM, he'll definitely draft a player he's very close to.

I don't think the Islanders take another centre. They have Tavares already. They need defense.

I voted Galchenyuk. But if he is off the board and Murray drops to us, then I will be just as happy.

I think the "worst case" right now (if you can call it that) is that we draft Forsberg. And that is nothing to panic over.

The poll is who will be available, not who you like the most. Personally I think that Galchenyuk will be gone by the time we pick and we may be stuck in a dilemna in deciding whether to pick 1 of the top 2 defensemen in the draft or the 4th best forward which looks to me like it will be Forsberg IMO.

I'd prefer Forsberg over Murray. FF can play C too.
I won't be unhappy with Murray either.

If NYI goes off the board (Rielly, Trouba, Dumba), and the at #5 you
have Grigs and FF, who would you take?

I would still take FF myself.

That WILL BE the top 3 drafted. Book it.

Forsberg will go 4th.


Toronto will be drafting a D man. Don't be surprised to see Burke move this pick.

Voted Forsberg because I thought you meant who would be available at 5. If Galchenyuk is available at 5, Leafs better select him.

This was game 3 of the second round of the playoffs

Have any of you guys seen him play because I have read that he will play a game like this and then play great another game?

I already warned people that Grigorenko had Alexei Kovalev syndrome (all skill, no will) or at least a mild case of it.

I would say that it will probably be between Galchenyuk and Forsberg. No way can I see Murrey still there.

Not sure what Murray is doing there in this poll, but he's the BPA so my vote goes to him.

We'd be very lucky to get the best defenseman in the draft at 5. Very lucky.

Forsberg will be available at 5 but Galchenyuk will not be, no chance.

No defense man will go top 4.

We're terrible at defense. And you see Burke moving this pick because we get gifted the best defenseman in the draft? Say what now?

I haven't been able to find much in the way of highlights for Murray. I find that odd for such a high level prospect. What makes him so special and would he be a defender who could step right into our top six?

I think you guys will have a choice between Forsberg and Dumba, and I'm as much a fan of those guys as I am of Murray and Galchenyuk...

It's looking like either Galchenyuk, Murray, or Forsberg.

Pretty much impossible to guess.

I am pretty certain the Oilers will just draft, and I am very sure they will take Yak.

But after that I have no idea what happens.

Going by the rankings, Grigerenko, Murray, and either Galchenyuk or Forsberg should be gone.

The wild cards:
1. where does Forsberg compare to the North American skaters
2. will any of the teams go against BPA and pick a forward or D -- nobody here would have any knowledge about that
3. trades on draft day -- again impossible to predict that
4. Does Glachenyuk's injury scare teams off

I can see a lot of things happening. If Burke likes a guy like Faksa or even Gaunce, and thinks he can move down a couple slots and get another asset, he might do that.

But if all forwards are picked 1-4, and Murray is still available, maybe you go after him. Although since most scouts have him in the top 3, I dont see him slipping to us.

I would love to be able to get Grigorenko at #2, but I dont think Columbus has any reason to deal with us. I mean who knows what the Habs and Isles do.

The more I think about it, the more I think Burke is looking at picking Dumba or Trouba with the 5th pick, or trade down for them. These guys play the prototypical Burke style of hockey and have a high ceiling. I'm probably leaning towards him wanting Trouba.

I highly doubt Murray doesn't go in the top four, but if no one takes him then he'd be a great addition, especially if we can add Schultz on top of that in the summer. That would be a pretty awesome d-core moving forward.

The other thing is most people think we will draft a centre, because we need a #1 centre. But its highly unlikely that anyone we draft this June will be in the lineup this October. So either way, its a pick for the future, which means we are just as likely to take a d-man vs a centre.
