2012 Draft - Plan

Alright so with draft 2011 finished up It seems we have addressed the needs of this organization that has been present since 2006- the need for forward propsects.

Thinking about this recently I thought of what might we be looking for next season at the draft, I'm really stuck on what position we should draft in the first round with it supposed to be such a deep defensive draft, should we take a Defensive defenseman prospect or should we possibly snag ourselves a winger (still a need).

With the thought of Phillips leaving within the next 3-5 seasons may be it's too early to think of this but I think we may need a Solid defensive prospect along the lines of cowen and who knows maybe gryba may fill that role but I'm curious as to what everyone thinks about next years draft.

Mainly what positional need or BPA should we pick ?

that's fine, this is just a simple discussion on what some us might see us do in 2012 at the draft.

While it seems early, I do hope we draft a goalie or two.

After that, I think it depends on next season... if we're confident in both F and D, simply go BPA... I don't yet know enough outside the top 2 to say more.

I thought there was a one-week rule between annual draft threads. lol.

As much as I share your enthousiasme for the draft, I think it might be early to begin this discussion. But since you started it!

We all know we'll have to find a sutable replacement for Phillips and even one for Alfredsson. But who's know what will happen next season? Who steps up? To me there are too many questions marks to properly assess the teams need for a draft that's one year away.

I want us to pick in the top 10 as much as anybody but I really think we will be around the 8-13 range.

Too many top dman projected to go in the first round to pass up, but I agree a goalie should also be picked next year.

Next year's draft is going to be amazing, that's all I'm going to say at this point.

I don't think we're going to be particularly good next year, so I'm hoping for Galchenyuk. That way if Spezza is over the hill *knock on wood* by the time the rest of the team is ready to contend we could (potentially) still have two elite centres, and if Spezza's still good we could just move Zibanejad to the wing.

People are saying BPA but there's a good chance that'll mean taking a defenceman. Which I guess is not terrible because you can just trade someone.

I just hope there will be some American/Canadian/Swedish forward who rises to top 5. I'm really having hard time believing Murray would draft a Russian with top 5 pick, and we don't need anymore dmen.

I don't think they'd have trouble with a Russian who's comitted to the CHL for multiple years like Yakupov or Galchenyuk. Even Gigorenko moving over would be a boost. Their skill is just too high to ignore due to the Russian factor.

I think we should pick in the first round as many times as we can in this draft.

We have the depth we need. Now lets get the top end prospects.
