Looks good.. what about drafting Rajala if he is there with the second round pick. We lack some high end talent and this is the guy that was projected to go top 3 a year or so ago. He just broke Ovechkins point record at the U18 tourny while doing it in less games played.

Plus.. I think he'd be a good fit for the offensive system. He maybe small right now but I think he can pump some iron... afterall.. he is Pat Kanes height.

I really like the idea of picking up Rajala if he's still around. Tatar would be nice if he's available as well.

He is very small. The big question is if he has the strength and fire to make it in the NHL.

There are several players I like more in the 2nd round than him, like Anton Lander.

We must make a concerted effort to get Budish

he'd be a great replacement for Reasoner or White in a few years

Lander is a much safer pick.. but I just keep thinking about Rajalas ridiculous upside.

Here's the article I wrote on Rajala a couple months ago:
http://www.hockeysfuture.com/article...s_toni_rajala/

I do not believe the Thrashers are bullish on him though, so I don't think he'll be taken by them. But if you want to hear from Troy Milam, by all means have a read.

You're all over the place. A few weeks back you thought he was a Top 3 player and hoped he'd center Kovy.
