Wait, what? What did we give Boston?

I really have to give up working for a couple of hours, I can't keep up.


Edit:

NM I'm an idiot. Going back to work and will catch up on everything later.

Anyone else notice Vasilevsky's wingspan last night? He looked like he could touch the boards from the center of the net....

From BP

Dylan Blujus
Quote:
The Lightning address the seemingly perennial need for a righty offensive defenseman by drafting Dylan Blujus out of Brampton.

Pros: Offensively gifted. Soft hands and a big shot on the power play. Reads and jumps into the play well. Above average skater who can play big minutes. Defends well off the rush.

Cons: Prone to turnovers when he has the puck in his own third. Struggles with positioning once the opposition gains entry to his zone. More of a leaner physically than a hitter.

Red Line Report projected Blujus as a #5/6 defenseman and compared him to, ironically, Kyle Quincey.
Brian Hart
Quote:
The Lightning continue to develop the Harvard pipeline with Crimson recruit Brian Hart out of the New Hampshire high school ranks. Like Alex Killorn before him, the Lightning end up with a prospect with good size and skill.

Pros: Great size and strength already. Heavy shot with a quick release. Soft hands around the net and good on deflections. Great natural athlete who is an accomplished soccer player, too.

Cons: First step acceleration. Could use his size more in the physical game.

Red Line Report projected Hart as a third line power forward who can chip in offensively. TSN's Craig Button compared him to ex-NHLer Bill Guerin.

Tanner Richard
Quote:
The Lightning get fantastic value in the third round with Swiss second year eligible Tanner Richard.

Pros: Good skater with great acceleration. Soft hands and a great puckhandler and playmaker. Competes hard at both ends of the rink and surprisingly willing to play the physical game, despite his slight frame.

Cons: Nagging injuries limited him to 45 games, and those injuries may be attributed to his lack of strength and size. Second year eligible so a little less time to develop than others in this class.

Red Line Report projected Richard as a versatile top 9 forward who chips in offensively and compared him to Valtteri Filppula.

Cedrick Paquette. Pete in the BP chat says he's ranked #94 by Red Line, compared to Matthew Lombardi.

I've seen Paquette play this year and I will see him again next year and will be able to provide updates for you guys.

A quick scouting report about him would say he plays a bit like Patrice Bergeron. He is big and strong on the puck, responsible in all three zones, has good skating abilities and is very smart on the ice.

Also scored more than 30 goals as a rookie in the Q. A favourite of mine and I knew he was gonna ge drafted even if he is at his 2nd year of eligibility.
