We want the best player available...who will a fast, big and mean, but with a scoring touch, forward......unless it is a sleak puck moving defenseman with size......no small players....please.....
What is sleak? Usually I can take the spelling mistakes here in context, but this one baffles me.
If you meant "sleek", then, by definition, you're looking for a "smooth and shiny, glossy, well groomed, or well-fed" defenceman.
I guess if we can draft a shiny, glossy defenceman, there's a good chance he could be a star, a shining star.
I know Komo was well fed; he's LOST 20 pounds since draft day; not sure how glossy he is though.
Seriously though...I very much agree that we need some forwards with size, and another goaltending prospect.
I'd also settle for a first round tough, skilled, mobile defenceman that can clear the crease with vigor and drop the gloves if challenged. It doesn't look like there are many D-men that fit that description that are rated to go around the 20th selection however.
I don't think the depth in goaltender prospects is as good in 2004 as it was last year. I hope with our 1st pick we can land a PF (Preferably a LW who could go behind Kast.), than maybe a solid Goalie. And I still think that you can't have enough good Dmen. Look at St-Louis and Los Angeles... The injury bug can be quite the *****...
I hope we draft Alex Picard from Lewiston, I could see us pick anywhere from 13th to 23rd, a wide margin as of now. Everyone says BPA, but at those slots, with the talent in this draft, there's going to be a very thin line between them.
Guys I have seen or am interested in, Picard, O'Neil, Wolski, Stafford, Laliberte, Bickell, Mancari, Dannis (FA), Reil. Shinn might be worth a late pick perhaps, he looked ok in the remax games.
