Agreed on Grigorenko. I would've been extremely happy with Faksa or Teravainen, but with the way GMJN works, there was no way we'd pick anyone but Faksa. The whole Kitchener team had a very down year so I wouldn't be too worried.

It's way too early to draw any conclusions from the 2012 draft anyways.

I like the Faksa pick, I think he'll become a 2C center with a solid two way game.

Would love to grab Barkov if we finish with say the 5th overall. It's very possible with this roster and Barkov could well slip to 5. If not then any of Lindholm/Monahan/Ristolainen would be fab.

Then we can take a chance on Petan with the Boston 1st if he's still around at 27/28.

FWIW .... Button says Barkov is NHL ready and a natural center.

I want him. He would look dirty in a green uni!

Let say we get him, where will he be slotted? 1st line center along side Benn?

With elite potential no less. Would love to get him and shift Benn back to wing.

Yeah for all the talk about Jones, give me McKinnon or Barkov and this team is set in about two years.

Sign Bozak to be your 3rd line center and hopefully get a salary cap dump defenseman and we're decent and improving next season.

I'm not calling you out on this because it's honestly really funny, but is a passive aggressive move the reason you keep leaving off Cole?



I've noticed a few of your projections for next year always leave him off.

Honestly, it's because I forgot all about him. He's so invisible that yeah...failure on my part but he does fill a 3rd line spot decently so that's not a huge deal and chiasson gets a little more AHL time.

I'd trade up for McKinnon. That guy is a franchise center.

What's the price to move from 2 to 4 and just how much better is McKinnon than Barkov?

I'd throw a 2 year contract at Anton Khudobin. He's played well this year with Boston. I know he doesn't fit Dallas' size fetish, but he's one of the better UFA goalies out there.

Campbell gets 2 more years in Texas which is perfect. He'd probably get a handful of NHL games over those seasons as well.

In the past .... jumping a couple spots in the Top 10 has only cost a 2nd. However, I'd say they'd want more in this case.

I honestly don't know much about Barkov other than what all of the scouting reports say. McKinnon though, is everything you could ever want in a center. In my opinion it's absolutely worth it to trade up and grab him.

I'd trade Larsen, the Boston 1st, and whatever else it took to get him. We have all these 2nd's now and there are good players available there too.

Khudobin is definitely awesome.

I think you have to get lucky as to who has that 2nd pick to make that move. Say the Avalanche do, they don't really need a center but they have to hope whoever is 3rd doesn't take Drouin which is who they probably want.

On the other hand a team needs a center it's going to have to be a good piece to get them off McKinnon if the difference is that significant.

Barkov seems legit. If we are at 4/5 I want him.

I can see it being

FLA - Jones
COL - Mackinnon/Drouin
CGY - Drouin
TBL - Nichushkin/Barkov
DAL - Barkov/Nichushkin/Lindhol/Monahan

Good call on the Russian going to TB. Didn't consider that. They have plenty of centers, and they aren't afraid of Russians.

I think I now want a center..and Barkov. I like him as much as MacKinnon and he's a lot bigger. I think Jones is going to be freaking incredible, but a center would give more instant impact and I'm also now on the Benn to wing bandwagon.. And probably need #1 to get Jones.

I'm with Rune. You go after Jones at all costs. He's exactly what this team needs from every possible perspective, yes, including marketing.

And Benn is still a #1 center no matter how many times people make lines with him on the wing. How quickly they forget.

I think they've done everything they can to acquire as many defensive pieces as possible even if it takes them a year or more to come to fruition. That said there's nothing outside of Faska and Shore for center and both are longer term projects. Franchise centers are just as valuable as franchise defenders.

Dallas probably doesn't fall far enough to get the 1st overall and may not ever have another chance to get as good a center as is available in those first 6 picks. They have to take one of them.
