I thought this was an interesting quote from Timmins:

“Myself, in my position, I look at the 25th-overall selection as projecting to having third-line upside. Tanguay’s a top-six forward.”

He also hinted that they were looking at a Quebec born prospect, which you have to assume was Deschamps.

The 2nd rounder we got from Washington in the Huet trade, is the Ducks pick not the Caps. I know it's not a big deal, just I prefer facts to be correct.

I hear Giraffes grow very quickly after birth.

The more and more I read, the more is seems like Trunev is going to be our good pick out of this and I like him even more.

I hope he does come over in the CHL import draft which is soon, if I'm not mistaken.

I really don't see how Timmins could expect Missiaen to see much more icetime....Cann will be one year older....and he'll play less? I just don't see it. Thank god for Jake Allen's developement that Pielmeier was traded, so I don't get why we wouldn't wish to see Cann go or to see Missiaen go to a team that need an #1 or even would like to see a tandem go for the whole year.

Cann might even get more games depending on the the Peterborough team next year....

Yes, but just asking here: wont that pick that we got from WASH (and that they got from ANA), wont that draft pick's position be dictated by where WASH finishes in the standings??

No, Washington's pick will be dictated by how they finish in the standings.

Maybe you should re-read your post and think about it from a logical standpoint.

I'm hoping they can convince the London Knights to take him.

That would be great. Give him a year or two with the Hunters and they will turn him into a good two way player.

I'm quite pleased with this draft after a few days of analysis I must say, loads of players I had overlooked(hey I'm an armchair scout ).

Johnson is a much better pick than Kishel.
Trunev, he was on my list, but a wildcard 6th-7th rounder, because of the lack of agreement(couldnt verify CHL interest)
Missiaen, well have to wait and see, I don't like his development status either.(behind Cann)
Quailer, had very little knowledge of him, but I have to say, I think hes a very good pick.
Kristo was in my top 45 after the U-18.

All-in-all for the number of picks we had, a pretty good draft, but we will have to wait and see.

Now lets turn our sight to the best draft since 2003--->2009. I really want us to keep our picks for 2009.

2x RW(Qualier, Kristo), 1 center (Johnson), one dynamic forward(Trunev), 1 goaltender.

Pretty much what I anticipated in terms of position rundown. It wasnt the year to go for a prime time center(2009 will be that year) and when you draft at 56 all the possibly top 6 Ds are gone.

Next year I expect another 3th-4th rounder goaltender, and probably the first 2 rounds on high-potential centers.

Olivier Latendresse is not even on our top 20 prospect list so I don't get what the big deal is

Looking at this and hockeydb.com, it is simply amazing the turn around we made at the draft. 2001 and 2002 gave us 3, but only 3 good players, but 2003 and up provides us with several key players every year. 4 out of 6 players we drafted in 2006 will be playing with Hamilton this year, and that doesn't count our first round pick. On top of that, the "weak" 2007 draft provided us with at least 5 players with NHL potential, already showing it. Comparing this to other clubs and mostly to our own past, it is fantastic!
