    Just let me live in denial for a moment please. Drafting Tkachuk after the season we just had is going to be hard enough. I don't want to accept it until i hear the words come out of Timmins' mouth at the draft podium.

    I saw Brady Tkachuk in a shoot out one time. He didn't score, but he had the right attitude about it.

    I like Foudy as much as the next guy and I think he's one of the best pure skaters in the whole draft but having him 19th on the NA list just feels wrong to me. I guess the Formenton precedent really works in his favor.

    At least you know you’re getting an NHL player. I don’t care for him but we’ve seen Yakupov go 1st overall, so it could be much worse.

    Just got to find what we like about him because if he’s there it’s probably a guarantee that they take him.

    Probably. If we dont end up picking top 2 and the team with the 3rd overall has Zadina over Tkachuk, I hope we fall to 5 or 6 and pick Wahlstrom, Boqvist, or Hughes. I won't breath easy until he's off the board.

    Tkachuk is the only player I would be gutted if we took with our pick. Everyone else ranked 1-10 I'd be okay with tbh. I just think Tkachuk is super, super overrated. I have him in the 10- 12 range.

    I'll save my comment for now, but I got a feeling he will pass a certain guy that is supposed to go in the top 5 and probably higher...

    He is exactly at 10 for me. Not a fan of him, but we are definitely being too hard on him. He will still be a good player in the NHL. But good isn't going to help this team.

    Some more Gustafsson, Berggren, Boqvist gudness. And a bomb by Marchenko.


    Marchenko-Morozov-Iskhakov line was doing some damage.

    So we have an idea that MB interferes. CJ didnt pick his own assistants and MB made the Chucky not a centre call and we play everyone but Chucky at centre it seemed.

    If we take Tkachuk in the 3 to 7 range, is that TT or MB ?

    So, last year, the streams were just uploaded directly to the IIHF website. Is that just not happening this year?

    Russia seems to have it on YT for their games. Don't know about the others.

    They only televised their games for the U20 4 nations, on their commie version of youtube. I hope that's not the case with this tournament.

    They don't have the live stream page this year, but maybe they're waiting for the official games to be underway.

    I asked them directly, waiting for a reply.

    Habs picking 1st getting Rasmus Dahlin, perfect partner for Petry, while Weber & Mete were like gold for the Habs. Having Juulsen, Alzner & Lernout filling out the top seven, is gold too, especially with Brooks coming. All Timmins needs is another 1st between 10th -15th OV, could land Kotkaneimi or Veleno.(Signing UFA Tavares or trade for ROR would certainly improve the center position. Jake Evans/Ryan Poehling are wildcard Centers with the type of drive & passion for the game Gallagher enthralls all hockey fans with.) This summer will be huge for the future of our Habs, getting a great Dman 1st in the draft is optimum, then following that pick with a Top Ten center, would give the Habs center depth. With so many young center prospects due to join either the Habs or Laval, finally we the fans can enjoy watching Audette, Bitten, Pezzetta, Verbeek in the AHL, knowing Ikonen & Vejdemo are developing well in Finland & Sweden respectively. It's been a few decades since the Habs farm system had this type of quality depth at center.:laugh::laugh::laugh:
