Tarasenko contract with 2014/15

Dad had the head coach in Sibir Novosibirsk....

I do not think that he would go to NHL.

I think Gormley would be a very nice fit for you guys. Not extremely familiar with your organization but it seems that you could use some young talent on D.

He's a very smart, mature player who plays an excellent two-way game. Plays a lot like Hedman (minus the size). He also is a very mature young man, very poised and looks like he will be a solid leader in the future. Interviews very well, just like Gudbranson.

Here are some interviews from him. A very likeable guy, and I'm sure you guys would love him in Tampa.

Some interviews:

Some skill ( I really recommend watching this, a 3 on 5 SH beauty):

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JSuWy...eature=related


Interesting fact for Bolts fans; he was babysat by Brad Richards family.


I get to see him regularly so if you have any further questions I'll do my best to answer them.


EDIT: Also, he has been part of a pairing with TB '08 6th rounder Mark Barberio (who was nominated for Best D in the Q this year) for the past two years. They were split up before the playoffs this year due to injuries but Brandon credits Mark with really easing the transition into the league for him.

Hey, thank you! I'm going to have to spend some time on these videos once I make some coffee.

If Gormley, Gudbrandson et al are gone by the time we pick, we should really try and package the pick with someone we need to dump, like Mes or Smitty, and get a stud blue-liner.

Yeah....scary thing was Espo saying he really really needs to work out this summer and bulk up or they're going to chase him out of the NHL. Hope he takes his advice...

For the sake of comparison. The Islanders traded the 5th pick a couple years ago for the 7th pick and a 2nd and 3rd. If come #5 the Islanders feel the best player available will most likely be around a few picks later, I expect a similar kind of deal and if Tampa don't want to pay that price, then Carolina or Atlanta might

Is Nino NHL ready? He's got the size, and he had a great season with Portland, elevated his game in the playoffs, etc. But can he step in next season? I think we should take him whether he can or not, I'm just curious.

I don't think anyone we pick at 6th will be NHL ready next season.

I think he could use another year just because he's young. He's 17 years old and doesn't turn 18 until September.

edit:

He is also one of the youngest players in the draft. If he was born a week later, he would be too young for the 2010 draft, and would have to wait until 2011.

Hello Tampa fans,
I am the Devils fan who also enjoys watching your guys. I've posted a couple of times before.

I will say congrats on the #6 overall pick. I hope the new owner gets some good management in place to develop the young core of talent that your team will have. A #1 overall, #2 overall, and #6 overall within the last 3 years....should be trouble for the other teams in the Southeast soon.

Stamkos has really amazed me. When I saw him play in NJ last year, I could tell the raw talent was there (fast skater, nice hard clean shot) but he just needed to take it to the next level. I really wanted to see him get the Richard to himself, but sharing it with Crosby is ok. In the interviews he seems like a nice kid with a good sense of humor.

My Devils had better turn it up a notch against these Flyers or I will also be looking forward to draft day


Holly

Wow, didn't know he was that young. I'd say a year or two, but his size and skill gives me a lot of optimism.

Barrie Colts Goalie

Mavric Parks is an undrafted goalie that Tampa should consider in the upcoming draft.

Stats

#1 leading in goals against average 1.25
save percentage 0.962
4 wins and 0 losses with 1 shutout

6' and 182 lbs
DOB 1990 -05-07

Mavric was traded from Kitchener to the Barrie Colts in January and has alternated with DiSalvo in goal. He will be playing perhaps the rest of the 3rd round against Mississauga while DiSalvo recuperates from ortho knee surgery.

Never seen him play but those numbers seem solid.

Really trade rather than Granlund? Record breaking playmaking winger...sound like a good fit for anyone?

That is pretty blunt, your going to be getting something if you deal the pick. I'd like to trade down and pick up extra picks. I don't like Granlunds size, I haven't seen him listed under 5-10 anywhere. He also hasn't been exposed to North American ice rinks and culture yet, sometimes that costs prospects extended years in development time. Further complicating the matter is whether the KHL continues to stick around. I shouldn't have to tell you about how we can lose prospects to the KHL after Harju, despite not being Russian, there are options for Euros that aren't there for NA kids. In the grand scheme of things, how big of a risk? Very little, but since this is an opinion based thread that is my opinion on Granlund.

As for the others. Your going to be getting a potential star at #6, so you want to make sure the pick works out. If your going to draft a defenseman, you want to draft with that in mind. If you envision somebody on the opposite side of Hedman on defense, you want them to be a righty shot. Gormley is a lefty shot, Fowler is a lefty shot, Forbort is a lefty shot. Gudbranson is a righty shot. So far so good. Also, watching Hedman near the end of this season, his weaknesses were on display, one of those weaknesses is his fighting/physicality, which is fine. Gudbranson brings that. Factor in his slapshot, and Gudbranson is almost a perfect compliment to Hedman.

Most of the forwards are just too risky. Connolly lost most of the season due to injury, so that is development time and the risk of re-injuring himself. If your sold on him, he is an option though. Tarasenko, small Russian winger signed and showing a commitment to go to the KHL...stay the hell away. Burmistrov the other Russian had to get permission to play with Barrie, if that gives you an idea on how risky he is. The other forwards are a stretch at #6, Niederatter fits well at #6 though, he is big, talented, and isn't jetting to the KHL.

I think Granlund would be great fit here for Lecavalier or Stammer.
His passing skills are unreal and he made 40 points in 43 games i dont remember a Finnish ROOKIE on FEL who did that before.
So far on U18 tournament he has 8 points in 3 games.
I think one of his biggest weaknesses is that he isnt very fast for his size.
And about the KHL if he's going on 1st round he wont go to KHL IMO.

That's where the + came in... straight up 6th pick for Halak is a no go but if MTL bites on Halak and their first I'd take it. I realize he wasn't that solid last night but over the course of the season he has been great and seems to still be improving.

I don't know... maybe I'm losing it. I'm honestly just so friggin' ready for some kind of long term solution in net I may be losing perspective. The playoffs starting (with the Bolts golfing) stirs the ghosts of our goaltenders over the past 5 years in my mind.
