I wouldn't mind trading Beaulieu to get another top pick. If a trade happens he would be the D/prospect I wouldn't mind losing

I'd wouldn't mind that but I'm very intrigued by Faksa who is also a scoring center.
Picking Galchenyuk & Faksa would be great as well imo.

What about Scott Laughton with our 2nd rounder. Liked what I saw from him this year and saw a clip on the NHL network last night about him, seems like a good solid promising prospect

Easily one of my favourite days of the year.I love draft day, can't wait for 7PM.

Hoping for Galchenyuk, Forsberg, or Murray!

Let's put the question another way then. Would you trade Beaulieu for Rielly or Trouba.

I think yes.

Anyone watched TVA Sports this morning? Lajoie or whatever his name his gave his top5 reason to trade the 3rd overall pick. All the reasons he gave were more than iffy, but his first reason.. trade for J. Stall... Stall. How can you be paid to have an opinion on hockey when you can't even spell a star player's name.

It pisses me off.

After reading Leroux's article, it is a possibility that we trade down to get Teravainen.

I'm sorry but 3 is too early to select TT. If we want him that bad, try to trade and hope to select him around 6th or 7th.

At 3, Yakupov (unlikely), Galchenyuk, Forsberg and even Grigorenko are my picks before TT.

This. I don't mind if the Habs draft TT...as long as they trade down to do it. At #3, it better be one of the bigger names

Absolutely. I do not like the way Beaulieu was playing in the WC and MC. I would use him as trade bait (together with draft picks) to get 6-10 draft pick.

Wellll...

Giroux was drafted where? Parise was drafted where? etc, etc..

If we trade down let's be sure no one else will take the player we're trading down to get.. lol

That's not the question. Yes I would but the choice here is after that trade, would I pick Teravainen or Ri/Trou?

Difference being one guy was arguably top 5-10 defensemen in the history of the game and the other guy is a walking band-aid that has barely played the last few years.

They also play with zero fear and unbelievable passion every night. They also will get their nose dirty at any time and will go to the tough areas.

McKeen's and RLR have expressed doubts on those aspects for Teravainen. McKeen's is adamant that he tends to play perimeter game and he's a player who will shy away from physical confrontations and he ''blends into the scenery when the temperature of the game increases''.

RLR wrote: ''Unfortunately, there are times when he doesn't bring much fire or intensity to the rink''

True.

If I remember correctly, Giroux went higher than expected, Parise went lower than expected. It's always tough to predict, but if Bergevin sincerely wants the best player available at #3, it's tough to forecast where they'll go.

With all the chatter this morning, we could be looking at a top 3 of:

1. EDM - Ryan Murray
2. CLB - Filip Forsberg
3. MTL - Teuvo Teravainen

Can't even imagine what my reaction would be if that happened. Flabbergasted, I think.

You can't assume nobody else in the top 6-7 will take TT, McKenzie had him at #7 overall so obviously some teams had him top 4-5-6 to push him that high. It may be worth the risk if 2 of Yakupov Forsberg Murray are still there at #3 and Galcheyuk is gone.

Get Murray #3, and trade our 2nd rounders+whatever to get a mid-low 1st round pick so we can get a strong offensive guy, maybe not Grigs but someone we had in our top 10 anyway.

This is what I'd like to see, Murray or Galchenyuk and another pick that allows us to grab Teravainen... I just have a feeling about him.

I'd be happy with Galchenyuk or Forsberg as well.

It will never happen, but I would very much consider Staal and the 22nd for the 3rd.

But it would be a hard sell by Pittsburgh since Staal is a UFA after this season.
