The Canucks are pleased to select right winger Lauri Tukonen, who many considered a potential top five pick in this year's draft. The Canucks feel he might be able to make the jump to the NHL right away, but don't plan on rushing the talented Finnish sniper.
As announced in the other thread, I will be taking over as interim GM of the Sabres. The Sabres are happy to select defenseman Ryan Whitney, whom they feel is close to NHL ready and will likely give a roster spot to...
It had to be done, somewhere, ROBBIE SCHREMP. If he can keep his head out of his ass, LOOK OUT. If he can't, oh well. Since Shadow stole Getzlaf from me I thought I would take the chance, and the Boston Bruins need that someone with an edge.
A PM would've been nice but I wasn't around much lately anyways. Sorry for holding things up. I will select goaltender Ari Ahonen with my second rounder of the prospects draft. There's a good chance he'll get a shot at the backup role in Jersey, though that more means that he'll get plenty of time to practise opening and shutting doors.
Colorado picks up Habs prospect Alex Perezhogin. They believe that in spite of his impending legal battle and AHL suspension that he will eventually be a solid top 6 NHLer, and as such, well worth picking up.
