I'm in a mock now, would anyone do this deal? Assuming Alzner goes in the top 5, and a top flight forward drops to 6.

Montoya and 47th for 6th overall?

why would you trade the 6th overall pick in a stronger draft (plus a second) for the 6th overall pick in a weaker draft? Makes no sense. It's not like Montoya hasn't developed like we wanted. That would be a waste.

stop the madness! one of the top 3 goalie prospects not playing in the nhl, under the age of 22 is a primo chip, and worth a top 5 pick alone

but he will be worth 2 draft picks after he back ups for henrick and shows he can be done. stop trading away a sick young goalie, when we need a good one in the system we play. and there is no excuse for having a backup for henrey. yes he is the king of new york, new york, but jesus, you stay prepared.

Here, Here. That was just a proposal. In no way am I considering that.

However, if Voracek or Kane were available at 6, I really don't think there's a difference in getting a number two overall or six overall. That said, Cherepanov and Alzner are left and I'm not buying.

I havent seen yet if Eller has moved up quite a bit...but isnt Backlund considered to go in the 2nd round now?

I might be mistaken with the new rankings.

It's an interesting draft in regards to how random everyone's rankings seem to be. Not sure why Backlund would drop to 2nd round, but he is ranked high on a few charts, including the always lackluster CSS.

I really like Moller, a better/faster skating Immonen.

Moller kinda reminds me of a cross between Gionta and Callahan.

Either works, and a faster Immonen is a damn good player. I'd love to see that kind of guy who can skate. He does everything, just not at an NHL speed.

It seems as though every year we're talking about lists being different, but this year has got to take the cake. I can see it, as I don't have Ellerby in my top five for defenseman, and have Hickey after Alzner with Petrecki third.

By all accounts, this is a pretty weak draft, so it's not surprising that many lists will be different. My cousin is an agent, and he uses a combo of CSS/ISS, his own intel, and that of amateur scouts he knows and trusts. It's like being a stock analyst.

I like Petrecki too. I've only seen him twice but he looks good, very physical.

Good call on Moller, that comparison is probably better than mine. I just really like the hustle and skill, plus he's not as small as some would make you believe.

People are scared about Petrecki's mental game, but the kid can skate and loves contact. He would add a demension that we do not have in our system right now.

Moller's working on me bigtime. If a team doesn't have a Callahan type player in their system, I'd definately take Moller over Esposito, etc. I don't understand why he's not rocketing up like Grabner did last year though, I think he should.

For any size argument, this is my thing. Height does not equal size to me. Prucha's a good height, but he's small. Someone like Bourret is not small.

So any concern of Moller's size are unwarranted. Weight wise, he's in between a Callahan and Bourret...he's a real athletic stocky. He just buzzes, and buzzes, he's a quick dude, but he boasts a strong, sturdy skating stride and you just know the guy has his legs under him should he meet up with another player. He can get his shot off real quick with his body in any position and I like that about him. He's a player indeed.

It's unlikely it would happen next season because Nashville scouts believe the 2008 draft class is stronger than either the 2006 or 2007 crop.

"Next year's draft could be one of those 2003 drafts a special, special draft that doesn't come along very often,'' said Fenton, referring to the draft in which the Predators picked up Ryan Suter, Klein, Weber and Sulzer among others. "We've got a list of underage guys already that we think are going to be pretty good players

A.J. Thelen could re-enter the draft:

Quote:
Thelen might be out

It's looking very likely the Wild will not even attempt to sign 2004 first-round choice A.J. Thelen, a Savage native, by the June 1 draft. The team, which has been disappointed with his development, has not yet contacted his representation.

In exchange for losing Thelen's rights and allowing him to re-enter the draft, the Wild will receive the 42nd pick in June's draft.

I would love Petrecki, but he is not going to fall that far.

Pass on Thelen, he's been a complete mess since being drafted.

Also, if I'm not mistaken, if the Rangers win this round, they pick no earlier than 27th. Otherwise, we still have the 17th pick.

I don't mind going D if Petrecki's there at 17, because the forward depth in the late first round/mid second round is better than the defensive depth. However, if Petrecki is gone I start thinking about Sweatt, Moller, and Tyrell.

We keep the 17th pick no matter what, unless we win the cup then we pick 30th.

Unless there are some sort of new draft rules i'm unaware of.

Thelen is too old to re-enter the draft.He will a free agent

MSU Rick Comley threw Thelen off the MSU team for underage drinking

His status has been in decline since he was drafted

The final 4 teams will have the final 4 selections-#27-#30

Quote:
So here's all you need to know about the new rules for entry draft order of selection: The only change to the existing format is that the final four teams that make it to the Conference finals will get the final four picks in the draft, regardless of where they finished in the regular season.

The Cup champion will pick 30th, the Cup finalist 29th and the two losers from Conference championships will pick 28th and 27th. Whichever of those two teams finished lower in the regular season standings will get the 27th pick

Lars Eller

Quote:
Eastern Conference NHL amateur scout (via e-mail):

"Eller has come on as much as any player in this draft. Last year you could see the skill level but he was undersized even for a junior player. This year he's grown and added strength. In terms of skill, he is a plus skater and shooter and an excellent playmaker. He's a kid with a lot of upside

Danes are a pretty special types in sports. In general, soccer/hockey and other team sports, western Europe and especially scandinavia and germany, always plays a very diciplined team oriented game. The Danes though, while beeing a really small country, always in all sports got allot of really natrual "ball/puck talents". I wouldn't call them flashy, but they are defenitly drawn to advanced stickhandling moves/dribbles in soccer and stuff like that.

Though they never got that primadonna attitude that you often see from thoose "magicians" types from other countrys, they are still very team oriented. Its a sport crazy country, and they only got like 3m citizens, won the European Championships in soccer in 92' for example. They are forced to be perfect to go anywhere in sports.

Hockey is growing there, I doubt they can challenge one of the top 7 countrys any time the next two decades, but wouldn't at all be suprised if they could produce a few players in the Zetterberg mold in the near future.

Haven't seen Lars Eller play, but danes are a bit intruiging.

What do you think of Backlund Ola? I don't care about previous hype nor current year statistics, which were down. (I really think unfortunate injuries-knee I believe-have unnecessarily dropped his stock)

Just MO, but Mikael Backlund may be too rich a combination of skill and attitude to pass up should he last.

What does everyone else think, Backlund or Eller?
