I'm glad the Bruins take Marchand he was absolutely incredible at the Memorial cup.
He's a great talent in the clutch and a real pain to play against. Boston is going to like him and friend Andrew Bodnarchuk. They just grabbed Bodnarchuk in the 5th round at 128. Not bad at all.
James Sheppard, Ryan Hillier, Brad Marchand and Andrew Bodnarchuk all grew up together and still train together in Halifax during the offseasons. All four played key roles on their QMJHL teams and are all drafted on the same day. Very cool.
The Islanders got two highly rated and well known wildcards in Joensuu and Marcinko.
But I think that the Isles best pick so far may have been Rhett Rakhshani in the 4th round. I've got a very good hunch about him, he's supposed to have excellent offensive skills and a pretty rough game. I like what I read.
Ben Maxwell and Nigel Williams look like they could be huge steals. I have no idea what caused Williams to plummet--maybe he really is cross-eyed?
