Who do you guys think will still be available at the 7th overall pick.
The only ones gone for sure will be Turris, Kane, JVR, and Voracek (Alzner, Gagner and Cherepanov might be gone too) SO everyone else should be available.
Best bet is everyone not named Kane, Turris, JVR, Alzner, Gagner, or Voracek
My money is on Alzner or Gagner, although I'd like to see Jakub Voracek fall to us... won't happen. Still, Sam Gagner will still be there, I'm pretty sure.
Voracek or Alzner if one of them falls.
Otherwise, I'd say Gagner or Esposito.
Agreed on the first four, but do believe atleast one, maybe two, of Alzner, Gagner and Cherepanov will be available. One of Hamill, Backlund or Ellerby in the top 5-6 wouldn't really surprise me.
Basic math says that one of Alzner, Gagner or Cherepanov will still be available at number 7. Not exactly a risky prediction.
It's not a risky prediction in mock drafts.. however
I have seen Gagner Cherepanov and Alzner all being projected top 5 in different places... who knows what each teams board looks like.
looks like Columbus fans and Oilers fans can sit in the stands and cheer "Cherry, Cherry, Cherry" for each of the first 5 picks.
gagner will be taken by Edmonton at #6.
Columbus will have the choice between Cherepanov, Esposito and Couture.
That'd be really interesting if Columbus took him and IF Cherepanov's attitude problems are true.
I figure teaming Cherepanov with Zherdev could be a good thing.
Doesn't a negative plus a negative equal a positive? Doesn't that rule transfer to hockey?
zherdev and cherapanov vs hitchcock?
Yes in algebra and if there is nothing added to the equation. Once you use the and, or and but ...well you know...it's no longer a pure neg + neg= pos.
i'll be doin that when im there
why not? they could work well off each other and with brule as center that could potentially work out...i personally think the jackets are spooked by russians and wont draft another with a top 10 unless ovechkin re-enters his name in
and by the way its negative x negative= positive
kane, turris, vanriemsdyk, alzner - gone
voracek, cherepanov, gagner, ellerby, esposito, backlund, eller - possiblities.
I expect voracek to be gone, either at #4, 5, or 6. I have also heard from many oilers fans that gagner will be taken by Edmonton if he's available. Cherepanov could go anywhere, and for a while I thought that Columbus would pass on him if available. But with Scott Howson as the new gm being a "best player available" guy, I could see him getting picked by the jackets. I mean he was #1 at ISS like less than three months ago, and is still ranked highly.
A thought it was a negative times a negative equal a positive...
Yepper. Negative plus a negative is still a negative.
my guess at 7
I think Kane, turris, JVR, Alzner, Voracek and Gagner will all be gone by 7.
Cherepanov, Ellerby, Couture, Esposito, McDonagh, Hamill, Eller, Mayorov, Petrecki, and Shattenkirk should all be there though.
Slim pickin's at number 7.
So you're saying we SHOULDN'T pick Cherepanov?
thats what im saying. i hope z is gone before the draft is over. one can only hope neither are Jackets come next monday.
