Please McPhee, show some ability to craft an actual team, not a collection of individuals who crumble under pressure.


We don't have two 2nds...

Looking forward to this. Just having 1sts is a step up from last year, and having #11 and #16 is great. Hoping for a combination of Grigorenko/Faksa/Lindholm/Maatta I guess.

Looks like Kitchener STH are saying Faksa is pretty similar in play to Landeskog (see thread on draft board). If that's even remotely true the Caps have to get him at 11.

I wonder if a GM has ever been directly fired for draft day duds. An owner seeing bad selections, and deciding, ok, that is the straw that broke the camel's back. But picks take so long to develop, an owner would have to hear the experts laughing at the selection, and blow a fuse.

My pet peev was always drafting a tiny player, from my old school DNA when the league was much more physical. I hated the Bourque pick. Still do actually. But am willing to eat crow - I didn't like the MP pick, but only because he was small. I don't think I realized at the time, it was only a 6th rounder. A lowly 6th, get over it. That may be one of his better picks actually, and he had a good year.

I think the worst an owner would do wrt a bad draft pick (or set of picks) is chew the GM out and force him to reassess the scouting system. Either tell him to spend more on it, or get different people in place etc. The lead times are probably too long for ownership to care much about the nuts and bolts of it all, I'd think.

Unless he was consistently going against his scouts and failing, or was consistently working off of certain biases that were just too hard to overlook (GMGM might be there with Finns, but that's not a large enough group that it would be considered a serious issue even if it's an actual thing).

Faksa/Grigorenko and Maata would be best possible 1st round(that could actually happen).

also, I'm assuming we're taking the BOS 2nd?

Yes. The Caps confirmed that about a week ago.

Faksa/Grigorenko at #11 and then Ceci/Maata at #16 would work for me.

Faksa/Grink and Maatta/Lindholm would work out nicely. Or Rielly/Reinhart/falling-D-du-jour and Girgensons, perhaps.

Lindholm > Ceci

Grigorenko/Faksa and Linholm/Maatta and I'm a happy camper.

Actually excited about the draft for the first time in a while.

Don't really care who they specifically pick at this point (though I do have my favorites), just as long as they don't go off-board.

And yeah, I second the 'trade something' sentiment. Mahoney's comments about taking the Boston second this year make me relatively optimistic on that front.

Trouba or Girgensons at 11 and then Wilson at 16. Wilson is the kind of guy you have to be aware of when he's on the ice. He may not have top six ability but he's a missile on the forecheck.

Dalton Thrower's supposed to have a pretty nice edge to him, right? Could he possibly be available at 54?

He'll go earlier than that for sure.

Yeah, I mean I figured. I guess his stock has been rising too. I like what I've read about him. Too bad they don't have a pick in between 16 and 54 (for Wilson's sake too).

Yeah, doubtful. Mitch Moroz could be a PF project option there. I like some of the more skilled energy types there like Kosmachuk, Winther, Marcantuoni, Smith or McGinn. All forwards that play a high energy game that could translate fairly well in a bottom six role provided continued strength/sense development with the potential for more.

Trading down from 16 to the 20's and adding a top ~50 pick wouldn't be a bad idea, esp. if at 16 there's no perceived clear-cut standout.

As long as they get one of Faksa or Girgensons at #11 or #16, I'll be fine with the draft.

Lots of rumors that Edmonton will go with Murray, and CLB doesn't want Yakupov. (Ryan Murray's brother tweeted about trips to Alberta, and CLBs Beat writer said CLB doesn't want Yakupov)

Tonight could be very interesting.

Amateur hour GM test, for when this thread gets bumped 5 years from now. For the record only, I want to see how I do, not to stir a debate. Its easy to say you want a G* or *ba. It's harder to pick who of all the great prospects in the top 10 or 20 will not pan out.

SMOKE.....

I wonder how much the labor issue may affect trades today. Looking forward to caring about Caps hockey again for a day.

Ha, thought you'd reply with the mid to late round Dale Hunter's "kids", one of the Rupert brothers.
