@Morinisbear your up
St. Louis is going to look back at the younger years and take a shot at ORCA WIESBLATT with the 200th pick. Our main goal here is to use him as a weapon against those idiots in Vancouver and land Brock Boeser in a trade. I mean, his name is Orca.....gotta help, right?
27. Alexander Khovanov
45. K’Andre Miller
76. Philipp Kurashev
107. Ty Emberson
138. Lukas Wernblom
169. Duncan McGovern
200. Orca Wiesblatt
This exercise has shown me how different peoples draft boards can be and how even with 7 rounds, you can have guys you like that still don't get picked.
I had a guy I liked here and ranked him higher but I went with the Orca instead. I'm interested to see if he goes undrafted because St. Louis will definitely bring him in on a tryout in the offseason. I feel like the 7th round you can take the risks and see what happens.
I actually drafted Shen in last year's Mock Draft (I think in round 7) when I was drafting for the Islanders, so I still consider him my property
Too close to Schenn for me. **** him
Pavel as a first name does help though.
Sorry for the hold up. Wasn’t PM’d
Florida selects with the 201st pick Tommy Miller
C'est avec grand plaisir que les Nordiques de Québec font leur sélection finale dans leur saison inaugurale dans la LNH. Avec le 202nd choix dans le...***struggle for the microphone...Frenchman is pushed off stage***
Ladies and gentleman, an evil Frenchman has been making the picks for the Colorado Avalanche over the last 200 picks. We don't know how this happened. The French have not been very successful in their attempts to take over or defend their territory in the past and it took us six and a half rounds but they have once again been defeated. In looking at their notes it appears that they attempted to select a Russian in this round which led to their ultimate undoing and I was able to escape the trunk of the poorly crafted automobile in which I was being held captive. It appears that the imposter GM has made some formidable selections so we will not object to the picks thus far, however we have confirmed with the league that Quebec City will never, under any circumstances, be given an NHL franchise ever again. We have learned in retribution for this that the Lindros parents have been taken into custody and will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Eric if you are listening, they need your help.
With the 202nd pick, first by the Colorado Avalanche, the Avs select the littlest hockey player in the draft, Kristian Tanus, Center, Tappara-Jr., Finland-Jr.
It is with great regret that this draft has come to an end with the Avs only getting to be involved in one pick for the future of their franchise. I am sorry you all had to deal with that rude Frenchman. Luckily he did not do too much damage to the team or the league.
@WheresMySnare has been messaged

Have you taken into account the very real possibility – certainty, even – that some of us don't have a clue what we're doing?
Wait, I thought that everyone on this board was an expert! I mean, so many of us have seen every single one of these players and have studied their techniques in great detail!
Excellent point! Certainly this draft has led me to look at way more prospects than I usually do. Usually I look into the 1st 2 or 3 rounds, then that's it. But it was fun to read up on more guys and look for some diamonds in the rough.
But honestly, when you see a guy like Myers, Ghost and Parayko go undrafted, it shows how flawed pro scouts are as well.
I don't even think it is that. It is just not a perfect science. Ten different scouts will see a player ten different ways. And ten different fans will see that player ten different ways from that. It's like stock trading. You can gather all the information you can on a particular stock or stocks but you're ultimately just guessing.
Are you sure 203 is new jerseys pick? Pretty sure this pick is phillys from the Straka trade. Looks like Jersey kept their seventh rounder last year so they forfeit their 7th this year to philly. Please confirm
According to www.draftsite.com, you are correct -- 203 is Philly's from the Straka trade.
We're going to go with NJ keeps the pick. I don't see the pick listed as Philly's on 2018 NHL Entry Draft - CapFriendly - NHL Salary Caps but still a question mark on 2018 NHL Entry Draft Pending Transactions. Straka really had no value at the time as he was just sitting as an AHL level player before he was traded.
You won't find that at any other site. I doubt very much that the pick is Philly's.
But according to Capfriendly, they don't.
No one has ever been able to determine what was the condition on actually getting the pick. Someone needs to email Hextall.
I think @WheresMySnare should make the pick.
Any objections? It's a cool debate but as @Tripod mentioned nobody can confirm the conditions and I have never read anything that would suggest (besides draftsite.com) that the Flyers have 3 seventh round picks.
Indeed, it's confusing if the condition merely meant the Devils got to choose which year they wanted to keep the pick (2017 or 2018), or if he had to play X amount of NHL or AHL games with the organization for the pick to transfer.
Wait ------ just found this
Says the conditions were NOT met. Therefore, the Devils should have the 203rd pick.
Ok thanks guys just wanted to make sure. So with the 203rd pick the Devils select Goaltender from the Waterloo Blackhawks of the USHL and University of MN commit Jared Moe!
Will send @Magua a message
Looking forward to this next pick to see who Magua is picking, and where that guy is on my list!!
With the 204th pick in the 2018 NHL Draft, the Columbus Blue Jackets are proud to select from Dinamo Minsk, Yegor Sharangovich (C). Good draft, let's go eat.
@Patrick Division up next.
