Beaulieu and Pribyl saved the draft.

I think Didier and Sullivan may end up being players.
Dietz is the pick I dislike the most.
I don't understand the Nygren pick.
Archambault can be something but I don't know much, will scout more this year.

D for me

Beside Beaulieu ( they had no choice but to pick him) , nothing to write home.

The usual kinky picks by Timmins.

Next year, I hope we gonna have some 2nd and 3rd round picks to select.

- Nygren seems like a Diaz type of player.
- Archambault could be this year's Gabriel Dumont....
- Didier might actually be the guy that aside from Beaulieu, is the safest to play in the league and has some upside.
- Dietz is safe but don't believe his ceiling is THAT high.
- While Sullivan could clearly be the biggest boom or bust prospect of this whole draft. But at round 7, can I say that this is the greatest 7th round pick since the draft has 7 rounds.

For the fun of it, 'cause it is in good fun....I'd say B.

Beaulieu is an awesome pick and I'm absolutely thrilled. I'd wish we'd have more tougher forwards, but strangely I'm more thrilled about Round 6 and 7 than the 4th. There are some boom or bust picks and the great thing is that they actually were picked when you can do such picks. Didier, have seen him once and thought we'd be interested in hm. He's actually the guy that has the best potential to be a player for us. Liked Archambault a lot ALL YEAR LONG, just thought that in the end, there were other players. Don't know the 21 yo d-man and there were also other players I wanted. Dietz is fine, reliable, steady...not sure about the ceiling but we will see. Pribyl and Sullivan, well that's interesting, mostly because of where they were picked. So all and all a fine draft. Could have been better, could have been worst.

Unsexy in the middle, sexier as we went along. But possibly rewarding down the stretch.
Surprised we did not draft any goalies.

B+ for Beaulieu. Keep in mind that for the rest of the Dman we took, it's like rolling the dice. If one of those guys plus Beaulieu make the team, I'll be happy.

Lol, I didn't know we had a top 4 defenseman to give SJ in exchange for DS?

Good
Pribyl - tons of potential, not one bad thing to say. Zero risk, very high reward.
Nygren - He's ready to go pro. Played with Brodin (tape2tape pass first guy) so might be product of good talent, but we can do that too. We can pair him up with someone like St. Denis or something in Hamilton.

Bad
*No goalies when we should've nabbed a good one with a 4th. We need quite a few.
*No tough guys. Kessy was available for a while. The undrafted ones I can understand, but Kessy.. I don't.

On the fence:
*The trade-down: If Nygren lands in Hamilton and does well, good. If not, then we definitely should've picked Nermark with the 3rd rd.
*Beaulieu: I know. A steal. But Klefbom, I think, will be the better player. Nate B>McNeill for me so that's not an issue.
*Didier: Not impressed. I know they were pissed Pageau was nabbed RIGHT before our pick but Labatte was a better option imo.


JEALOUSY
*Ottawa: Z-bad, Noesen, Puempel, Prince, Pageau
*Edmonton: Nuge, Klefbom (you'll see how solid he'll be), Musil (wow), Perhonen(another good -BIG- G with tons of potential), Ewanyk (perfect bottom six W)
So jealous of those tanking ******** :rage:

There is tons of good goalies available out there at NHL, AHL, even ECHL level. + They can invite some undrafted or unsigned ones to camp.

Unless they verbally agreed with Aaron Dell, no there isn't that many good ones with potential. No more Simiilas and Mayers. I'm talking solid G prospects.

B+

Sure, there's not a lot of glamour after Beaulieu, but:

A. There really is something to be said about the adage of building a championship from the net out.

B. The thought of a young defense anchored in a few years by PK, Tinordi and Beaulieu is awesome. The potential is there for a new "Big 3" the likes of which the Habs have't seen since Robinson, Lapointe and Savard.

C. Yeah, we're overstocked with D-men, but it's not as if all these guys will play for us. (The sheer numbers alone will prevent that.) But most teams, sooner or later, come sniffing around the trade market for defense, and the Habs will be in good shape then. Several of these guys will be converted either into established players or additional draft picks.

Oh, and drafting a 21 year old seems odd, no matter how good he is.
Streit was 27.

approximately:

65% of 1st rounders make the NHL (200 game + careers)

25% of 2nd rounders

12% of 3rd & beyond

I'm not going to comment on a crap-shoot until the dice have stopped rolling.

Here's how most people grade the picks:

Beaulieu - Saw him play in the Memorial Cup and watched some highlight videos from youtube A
Didier - Never heard of him F
Archambault - Never heard of him F
Nygren - Never heard of him F
Dietz - Never heard of him F
Pribyl - Never heard of him F
Sullivan - Never heard of him F

Overall that earns a C-

I'd say B- to B. I thought this one was better than last year's draft.

Like the Nathan Beaulieu, Magnus Nygren, and Daniel Pribyl picks.

You are right. But the 1st round pick should be weighted a lot heavier imo. Getting Nathan was a pretty big steal. Its basically like trading our 1st (17th) and 2nd to move up to 10th and pick him. Except we didn't have to give up our 2nd to get him.

I wonder how many people had heard of Andrei Markov (6/162) or Michael Ryder (8/216) or Mark Streit (9/262) or Jaroslav Halak (9/271) or even Lindsay Vallis??

Andrei Markov. Subban is going to be ready to fill that role he would leave, we already know what its like without him, we survived.

B for Beaulieu! I'm sorry but you can't hate on a draft when you select a prospect like him with the 17th overall. Nygren I feel will be an NHL player as well... very underwhelmed with the other pics.

Devin Setoguchi was NOT available. Wilson said he didn't expect to trade DS when he signed him to that 3 year contract the day before the draft.

Brent Burns was available.

Just Curious...

What do you think about the actual picks? How many times have you watched them play? What do you think their potentials are?

I want your analysis based on actual visual experience(not youtube) of these players.



In regards to Devin Setoguchi...what package could we have put together that would have been better than Brett Burns? Just curious on what you think would have been a better package.



My opinion on the draft...I don't know of any player aside from Beaulieu. I liked that pick, I have no idea of anyone else. But just because I have no knowledge of those picks, doesn't mean they're automatically crappy. Likewise, just because they were picked by the Canadiens, it does not mean they're automatically good.

I'll wait and see what happens. I'll reserve my judgement to a later period where we can actual offer better insight into the path these players may take.
