McKeen's: "Mtl, Stl and Chi, best 2007 draft"

According to the McKeen's 2007 Draft Review (I received it today), Montreal, Chicago and St-Louis had the best 2007 draft as their ranking. And Montreal and St-Louis got the best depth (Chicago had a little advantage with the superior player in Kane). McKeen's give an "A" for these 3 teams.

In example, Boston got "C" and Minnesota, the worst" got "D-"

We will see in the future, but it's a great start!

Good job Timmins!!!

Well, Chicago with a top pick and St. Louis with 5 picks in the top 2 rounds seem like safe calls. Good to see the Habs get some 'spect. I'm happy with our 1st and 2nd rounds too! Micky D, Max Pac, and Subbs =

Personally i think that we did better last year with Fischer , Maxwell , White and Valentenko.But that may be due to the fact that i don't know much about the American kids that we drafted in the late rounds this year (Conboy , Stejskal , Kishel).

This year wasn't bad with guys like McDonagh and Pacioretty but we drafted too many defensemen imho.I was also kind of disappointed that we passed on Keven Veilleux in the 2nd round for Subban.Still , i like PK so it's not really a big deal.

I also think that the 2005 draft was better than 2007 as well.

Chicago managed to pick up Sweatt and Aliu in the 2nd round. That's just nasty.

From many reports, they both are headcases...we only draft leaders...

San Jose did great as well

They had no 1st round pick and they ended up with the guy i wanted the most in Couture and Petrecki.They gave up Mark Bell and Toskala , two players they don't really need.

Now that's some good management

I think its going to be hard to really grade our 2007 draft for at least a year, or two. I would be really happy if it turns out to be on par with '05 mind you, which has to date has given us our top rated prospect in awhilw in Price, and our first teenage regular in a long time in Latendresse.

I've never heard that about Sweatt, but I was curious as to why he dropped. He seemed to be a sure-fire 1st round choice. I think I vaguely remember McKeen's blasting him before the draft for punching a window or something stupid like that. Anyone want to elaborate?

I think it was just that, he lost his cool and punched a window, cutting his hand. I think he may have missed some games because of it too.

Anyway Chicago had a good draft but their picks are overrated now because they picked names everybody knew. I could've done that with a copy of Redline or ISS, just by going down their lists, and HF would declare me a draft day winner too.

The french media bashed to Habs because we didn't drafted Esposito.It's as simple as that

If we did draft him , you wouldn't have hear them whine.Instead they would have overhyped him like there is no tommorow (remember Latendresse ??) so in a sense i'm glad that we didn't picked him for that.

Very risky picks if they do not get their heads on straight. I like the last 3 drafts and cannot wait to see some of these players graduate to see what they can do at the NHL level.

It would have been nice to see what Huet and Souray would have brought at the last trade deadline and watch Timmins have 4 1sts to work with. Espo and Cher would be allowed to self destruct for our entertainment.

No wonder, the 2005 draft is going to go down as one of the best draft of the last 10 years IMO. You already have 5-6 guys who are solid NHL regulars as teenagers from the draft and there will be many more establishing themselves as regulars this year and next most likely.

It was a really good crop of players available that year and we got real lucky that year with the lottery awarding us the #5 pick, Latendresse somehow falling, etc

This is why i was annoyed by the fact that we didn't deal Souray at the deadline.If Rivet fetched a 1st then there is no doubt that Souray would have as well and it could have meant either one of Esposito or Cherepanov (most likely Esposito)

That would have been great

Yes you're right we can see from the free agent signing periods that there were A LOT of teams intersted in Souray. All the teams we're willing to give their 1st rounder for a player they didn't even want to sign

It's not McKeen's, but the Red Line... McKeen's was always very high on Sweatt.

There is a difference between being interested in him as a UFA in the off season (which mean big money + long term) and being interested in him only for a playoff run.

Bob didn't even tried to deal him so the argument that there was no market for him is not valid.I'm pretty sure that a team would have shown interest if he had been shopped around at the deadline.I may be wrong but that's how i see it.
