I wonder if guys like Barkov and Lehkkonen need to fulfill military obligations?

I'm quite taken with Lazar, have seen him live several times and love his game. Have seen him come up big when needed.

I like him too. The when you watch his game you can see the skill and hockey IQ he has. His lack of production may scare some teams so I think he will fall enough for us to get him and it will kind of be like taking Harrington, where we get him on an off year but then looking back we have a steal.

If Kerby Rychel is available. I would take him. TSN Mid season rankings has him at #23. Draftsite.com has projected him being selected 26th (not credible I know) but here is the scouting report from Craig Button on the TSN Midseason rankings, and Bill Placzek from Draftsite.com.

Quote:
TSN Scout Craig Button:

Kerby plays with a passion and purpose that is undeniable. He may not be the most fluid skater but he's a very effective and he gets to where he wants to go. He will play nasty and physical, which makes it very uncomfortable for opponents because he simply doesn't allow himself to be denied. He has very good hands and can score in multiple ways and will pay the price to get goals. He plays a rugged style and his line mates will get room and space because he's constantly taking opponents out of the play. He plays with a single-minded focus on helping the team win.
http://www.tsn.ca/draftcentre/feature/?id=9842

Quote:
Warren Rychel's son is as tough as nails, a ready and willing combatant, and a grit player. He has good hands for a guy whose bread & butter is down low, where his tenacious forecheck can disrupt and cause havoc in the cycle. His skating needs work, but he moves with agility and strength, and poses problems on every shift with his physicality, playmaking abilities, and puck control. Plays in every situation and even takes the odd face-off. He scored 41 goals in 2011-12, and no matter how you break down his lack of elite skills, or his average size, he is a player that just scores with hard work.

Yes, and he's F*ing good. He's kind of like Zach Parise. Seriously. (except he's a natural centre who has been playing wing the last few years).

I love Max Domi. I don't think he'll be around when we pick (sons of former Maple Leaf iconic figures tend to get a ton of exposure/hype), but I think he's legit.

I always like looking through the available draftees for names that remind me of fictional charters. Andre Burakovsky is very similar to Andrei Bolkonsky from War & Peace. Don't see anything that is as good as last year's Frederic Larsson, which was really close to Frederic Larsan from the famous mystery, The Mystery of the Yellow Room.

You too can be on the cutting edge, find your draftees of tomorrow through famous literary works. No doubt there will be an Edmon Dantes or the like in next year's draft class, maybe even an Odysseus, who knows.

Take a look at the NHL.com Mock Drafts below. With the 25th overall pick, the Pittsburgh Penguins select:


J.T. Compher, LW, USA U-18 (USHL)
There's a lot to like with this smooth-skating blueliner who does everything well
http://www.nhl.com/ice/page.htm?id=87146


William Carrier, LW, Cape Breton (QMJHL)
Strong power forward who battles hard on every shift; at 6-1.5, 198, he's tough to knock off the puck
http://www.nhl.com/ice/page.htm?id=87147


Jason Dickinson, C, Guelph (OHL)
Needs to get stronger to compete at next level, but he's a great skater
http://www.nhl.com/ice/page.htm?id=87148

So is Compher a smooth-skating defenseman or a LW.

I confuse.

Oh yeah, I can't imagine him being available much (if at all) after the mid point of the 1st round. But whether it's him or anyone else, perhaps it's worth moving some assets for to trade up in the draft. Normally I am a big proponent of moving up if you really like somebody, but I feel a little bit differently about giving up 2nd round picks in this year's draft if it's 60+ players deep.


The Pens have never shown a history to do that, so I'm not expecting it; but then again we've never had the depth we currently do -- especially on defense -- within the organization. We're all expecting a "Maatta for Setoguchi/Kulemin" type move in advance of the playoffs; but if that doesn't happen, would you trade Maatta to move up 7-10 spots in the 1st round? It's something serious to think about.


Normally I am a big proponent of moving up if you really like somebody, but I feel a little bit differently about giving up 2nd round picks in this year's draft if it's 60+ players deep. But moving out existing players (Orpik, Kennedy, Niskanen) or the assets you get in return for them, or certain prospects (Maatta, etc.), is a bit of a different story.

As I mentioned up thread Nichushkin is the player I want. If he slips into the 8-12 range and you can move up with the kind of assets you mentioned it needs to happen.

He's a huge winger with a good shot and soft hands. You draft him and wait.

If Paul Martin keeps this playing up all year we could trade him plus maybe a draft pick and move up. Is there a lot of NHL ready prospects in this years draft? Haven't really been following.

He's a LW/C. Honestly for some reason this kid scares the hell out of me. Seems to be a big boom/bust type prospect. I've seen everything from nose for the net to a poor with his pass accuracy. I'm sure someone has seen him play can comment more.

Based on this management we have, who's the most likely player we draft?

I think there are probably 10-15 players this year who would have gone in the top 5 of last years draft. Never know how these things work out but really seems like a great year.
