I just hope they can make the best of a bad situation again this year.

I thought they did very well last year considering the picks they had.

Do it, front office. Do it for Marzipan.

I agree. Graves played well in the playoffs for Val-D'or. Duclair finished 6th in the QMJHL in scoring (just a few points behind a guy like Ehlers).

One can hope. Would love to snag him off the board. potential steal of the draft.

Seems fun too. The league needs some arrogance, as long as he doesn't become toxic in the locker room.

Said it in the main board thread too: He'll celebrate, be ridiculed for his celebration, then celebrate even harder his next time on the ice. Would love to have that here. Same reason I was excited about Kristo, they just need some maturing and if there's anyone that can do that it's veterans and NHL coaches

Agree. I want that enthusiasm. I want someone with a cocky attitude. Sometimes I feel like Nash could benefit from that type of attitude. Ho-Sang would be a stellar pick up for us.

Someone is going to pick him. No reason why it shouldn't be us. With our prospect pool as thin as it is, we don't have the luxury of passing up a player like him. I just hope he's learned his lesson and will be more mature in the future.

Yup, the only two players in front of Duclair in the QMJHL scoring race that had already been drafted were Mantha and Drouin. Good company.

See, I agree with this 100%. The kid has made some very dumb mistakes with regards to what he said. However, you are right. We don't have the luxury of passing on him. People change. People mature. Another poster on these boards made a stellar point regarding Deangelo.

I don't know the details of the incidents, but when you are seeing red, like about to throw punches, dumb **** comes out of your mouth. Especially when you are 17 years old. Even if you have no problem with women, you might call a guy you are about to fight a bee word. Even if you have respect for homosexuals you might use a homophobic slur just before you throw a punch (especially if the target is not gay). You might use these terms in conjunction with any apparent physical features or personal traits. Whether they are tall, fat, blonde, Russian or French. The whole idea, really, is to be offensive. The things that are yelled in a heated verbal exchange between combatants generally aren't the best representation of a person's actual views and opinions.

Again, I don't know the details. Yelling a slur during a very heated exchange is not acceptable, but it is forgivable. Now, if he's doing this casually, or in a sustained, malicious bullying sort of way, that's obviously much worse.

Yep. What Duclair did was quite impressive. If you look at points per game of the top 10 rather than just total points, iirc Duclair actually comes in higher than 6th. Getting another potential home run like him would definitely make up for our lack of 1sts for 3 years in a row.

To think they got him and Buch, who did very well for his age in the KHL with grown men, without a first or second, is pretty incredible.

Agreed. I think Graves has potential (bit of a longer shot than the other 2) to make it as a dman.

The question becomes... If Ho-Sang or Deangelo don't fall (odds are they won't), who do we REALISTICALLY target with our 2nd?

All this talk of De Angelo just makes me think he'll be long gone before we pick.

I think he'd be a 3rd round pick, but seeing that we just picked up another 3rd could mean that he is a possibility at this point.

Bluenote I love the fact that you have Antti Kalapudas in your list. That Fin is scary good and completely underrated. I like Nikita Jevpalovs in there as well.

What are your thoughts on Arkhip Nekolenko and Leon Bristedt?

Yeah Kalapudas came on late and I wonder how many teams may try to snag him early as he seems to get little hype. Looks like he could take time but be a possible NA style C/Forward.

Nekolenko, did not see much of him but he has a great shot and has great athleticism, but so far I don't see enough that he can put all that together. He was getting by on talent, then he was challenged and didn't do well, he was easy to keep in check.

Bristedt can play, he will be average size at best but I wouldn't mind him as a 4th round pick at all.

FWIW, my top move would be to move up and take Demko higher in the second.

Sounds like they like quite a few goalies in this draft.

Scoring Demko or Husso in the second would make me a very happy boy.

Clark seemed to think that there are several good ones--possible NHL starters some day. Sounds like we're going to draft one.
