Since no one else is going to be honest and admit they have no idea what they're talking about. I'll go ahead and do that..
The first pick seems to be very promising. And as far as the other picks go, I really wouldn't know if they're good or bad. The draft was exciting. Let's move forward to free agency and have some more nervous moments as fans during the offseason.
It feels like its the first draft for a lot of people here. Do you expect us to pick a Crosby in the 5th round? The negativity here is out of control. Our drafting was fine, no team expects any pick past the 3rd round to be anything special. If they are, you consider yourself lucky.
Just popping in to say people shouldn't be too upset about Jayce Hawryluk at No. 32. Led the Wheat Kings in scoring last year and had an insane plus/minus compared to his teammates. I've made the rounds and talked to some media, other teams and some guys that cover the WHL and they say he's the real deal. Not a stretch pick by any means.
As for Wegwerth he's committed to Notre Dame, but will play in the USHL next season w/ Green Bay. Thinks it's best for his development and will get more playing time for now. The dude is massive.
As for Lammikko, he's not a sure thing, but his stats don't do him justice. There's a lot of love for him here as far as his potential goes. He's never talked to Barkov, but he knows Bergy and Sasha are on the team. He doesn't speak much english at all.
