Their names are Exter and Boucher.

We also have Duba, Goepfert and Lehto waiting in the wings. Two of those three have the potential to be NHL starters, IMO.

Goaltending is the LAST thing we need.

It seems like the pens will select Malkin with #2 overall pick. But what about our 2nd round pick, which is essentially a late 1st rounder?

No. Your #2 pick overall is actually an early 2nd rounder. That's absolute.

He means that the quality of our 2nd round pick will be about the same as a late first rounder such as #29 or 30.

Absolutely no need for another goalie at this point, the missing link is a high scoring forward. If it were up to me, I'd swing for the fence with every pick and try to land that impact forward. Probably most would flop, but if one panned out to be a sniper....

Pens have enough depth in prospects, great young D and solid and deep in goal.

I just read that Wheeler jumped to #17 among NA skaters in the final CSB report.

He's #48 overall in Red Line this month. But, he could be worth reaching for a little bit.

I guess I was way off about Korpikoski. I guess we'll be very lucky if we can land him at #31. Though I still prefer Nokelainen.

Alexandrov moved up ALOT in the final rankings.

Korpikoski - Has worked his way onto the first line of the TPS junior squad .. terrific skater .. has short, quick strides and changes tempo with ease .. skates low to the ice with good balance .. likes to challenge defensemen one-on-one and go around them .. not big, but looks strong and sturdy on the ice .. doesn't back down from physical play .. took a big hit in the game and answered shortly thereafter by utilizing his frame with some edge on a forecheck .. very good puck control skills, even at full speed .. finishing skills are still very undeveloped, even despite effort, he never really came close .. showing more energy than before, while his added intensity has transformed him into a sought-after prospect.


Nokelainen - Continued to impress with a strong game against Switzerland .. scored his first marker of the tournament on a rebound .. plays on the first line .. can be a real force along the boards, although more so against the Swiss than the tougher opposition such as Canada .. skating and confidence are on the rise .. mature, competitive, but not a terribly exciting player to watch skills-wise.



Those are the most recent posts on McKeens for both players.

I cant believe Alexandrov is ahead of Radulov, Nokelainen and Korpikoski. And Thelen is surprisingly low too.

I was very surprised at Alexandrov being so high. I was looking for where he would be, but started looking later than his current position. I still think he could be a good pick for our Hedberg pick.
