However, if they have some offense you get very effective 25 goal guys who can play top 6.
This guy looks great. Like Stalberg with way more upside.

Jacob de la Rose is a cool name. A name like that has got to go somewhere.

Jacob De La Rose reminds me of a former Ottawa Senator Magnus Arvedson. Similar size DLR is faster but both are solid 3rd liners. I don't expect DLR to be a top 6 but will be a NHL regular.

He has to. If not, I believe it will end up to be a bad pick. You will see guys in the 2nd with much higher upside.

I like that. Any team needs an Arvedson-type.

Filip Forsberg 43ga 8g 9a 17p
De La Rose 38ga 6g 6a 12p

Height / weight as of right now, De La Rose is younger than Forsberg:
Forsberg 186 cm / 6'1" 85 kg / 187 lbs
De La Rose 188 cm / 6'2" 86 kg / 190 lbs

Both have been captains for the Swedish U-18 team
Both won the "Allsvenskan Most Points by U18 Junior" for most points in SHL-2 (SEL-2)
Thanks for passing this on. Another pick I am pleased with.

Probably the best player of an extremely disappointing draft. McCarron? de la Rose? Fucale? Lehkonen? This is the draft that we were all looking forward to? This was the draft that we were hoping would dramatically improve the core talent depth of the team? I was of the opinion that moving up in this draft would have been counter productive because of the cost. But this was based on the assumption that we drafted wisely. I would easily rather have Morin or Horvat than the first three players we drafted. Could we have moved up to the bottom of the top 10 for our 25th, 34th and 36th picks? We'll never know, but seeing what we did draft, I wish we would have tried. I repeatedly wrote that I hoped Timmins would draft wisely. From my review of the choices, my hopes went unanswered.

Honestly, it's not really the player itself. Just that my biggest dissapointment of that draft was to have passed on Dauphin and Carrier. Not having Poirier is also dissapointing but there's nothing we could have done. I understand the Fucale at 36. But De La Rose at 34 is tough to take and we will have to wait his development. But I will say right now that I'm expecting Dauphin AND Carrier to play much bigger roles on their team....unless Carrier goes all Bourret on me.

At least we most likely have a good sure-fire NHL player in De La Rose.

Bergevin said last year's draft was about scoring, this year's draft was about addressing size and character. He wasn't looking for a Zykov or a Mantha, he was looking for guys who complemented Collberg, Bozon and Hudon.

His quote: "Certain players get you into the playoffs, other players get you through the playoffs." I can't say I disagree with him.

I think Bergevin saw that we had a glaring hole in our prospect pool and felt he had to address it. I can't say I disagree with him. With limited number of contracts, I don't see a reason to draft another Collberg when the other types of players that help you win the Cup can't be gained as UFAs.

We did not draft BPA this year because we already had those players in our pool.

I don't remember what was said about Eller on draft day.

Pacio was supposed to be a good 2-way, fast, good in corners, but missed a scoring touch.

Big fan of De La Rose. Can do everything. Jack of all trades. Put him anywhere on forward and on any line and he'll work. The kind of guy you need when trying to build team depth.
