Philadelphia selects LW Slava Kozlov. Say what you want about him, but his #s don't lie. Since the lockout, he is 12th among wingers in points, ahead of some quite notable names. He's a natural scorer with hockey sense, who we feel should go well with Pavelski's playmaking abilities, and is solid defensively.
This effectively gives us 3 forward lines, 3 defensive pairings and a starting goalie.
I suggest letting those who were skipped make up all their picks before starting the next round. I think we are missing the point of the draft by skipping teams.
I don't know if I agree. If they don't want this to happen they should be here for their pick or send a list in. I think the time should stay 4 hours though and not go down to 2. The pace of the draft isn't bad it's just the GM's not showing up.
He compiled a 37–17–7 rookie coaching record with a team that was 6–14–1 when he inherited it. Under Boudreau's leadership, the 2007–08 Capitals won their first Southeast Division title in seven years and made the playoffs for the first time in five years. He won the Jack Adams Award as the NHL's best coach in 2008.
