Right, but the point is that Pittsburgh clearly has something in mind here.

And that's good for them, but it's several steps too far to assume they're getting Parise or Suter. Each of them will likely get a dozen different offers.

I'm happy that Pittsburgh is worse now than they were this morning, with no guarantee that they get better by October.

Yeah, I'm not saying they'll get either guy. It's just interesting to see them apparently making a push. Definitely an exciting start to the off-season.

If teams screwed up not taking Forsberg before 11, that doesn't make Caps geniuses. It makes them lucky - IF the kid can play

Besides, Caps will find a way to mess it up probably

I know Carlzner will probably kill me for this but I wonder if Yzerman would have been tempted by, say, 16th, Neuvirth and Wey for 10th and Garon. Then McPhee gets over his hate of russian players and drafts Forsberg at 10 and Grigorienko at 11. Just imagine

Ovechkin Grigorienko Kuznetsov
Johansson Backstrom Forsberg

Nick Kypreos was saying how Suter and Parise want to play together. Also said that the Wild and Hawks would make a move for them come July 1st.

Pittsburgh really didn't get that much worse. Sutter can do most of what Staal can on the 3rd line. They lost a bit of offense but that hasn't been their problem recently. Defensively they're pretty much where they are.

One decent top 6 W signing makes them better for next year.

EDIT just saw the Michalek trade. That they ****ed up.

Yup, the Caps have a terrible record with their first round picks. Bust after bust after bust.

You're a tool, Dater.

It sounds like Suter wants to stay in the West. I don't remember reading much if anything on Parise. Hopefully the Playoff run keeps him in Jersey.

@adater Thats a clown question, bro.

He's pretty much the biggest tool homer. Maybe that Pens color guy can give him a run for the money but maybe not.

Who the **** is adater?

Reading the Avs Draft GDT was kinda funny.

Someone quoted the post where I said "Well it looks like we really did trade Varly for a top 5 pick" or something like that, in the first thread.

Apparently i have a really ****ing bad reputation over there.

There were six times as many players drafted in the first round from the USHL than from the Q. Staggering how far the talent level has fallen. And the only guy drafted from the Q was a Russian.

Best tweet from the draft easily.

I'm surprised it wasn't more talked about that Wilson was the first Canadian forward taken.

The USHL is a good hockey league.

USHL‏@USHL

A record 6 #USHL players, one USHL alum and one USHL draft pick selected by @NHL teams in the 1st Round of the 2012 #NHLDraft.

He's a god damn monster.

I think he'll be really close to making a roster spot from camp this year, at the least.

#Caps fans rooted for Avs to do poorly, hoping for top 5 pick. Avs weren't terrible, but Caps still landed top 5 talent in Forsberg.

I literally said this right before we selected Forsberg, in the first thread.

We could of also had top 2 talent.

HAHA You guys should read that topic, those people are seriously talking about drafting Jones or MacKinnon. The butt hurt overall on that topic is amazing.

A little OT, but if you guys really want to laugh go and read the draft thread on the Calgary Flames Board. The fans reaction when Feaster inexplicably traded down from 14 with so many great players still left -- you will laugh so hard the tears will run down your cheeks!

Could help to have him with someone who goes to front of the net to collect rebounds off those shots.

I think he loses Ovechkins size and physicality possibly, but he does gain a back hand.
