    Who do you think will be drafted in the middle of the first round?

    11-20 range

    best offensive talent? defensive?

    do you think Valabik will be drafted in the first round? i hope not.
     
  5. I think it is slam-dunk he will go in the first round. Possibly, inside the top 20 picks

    Jeff Schultz is a defenseman I can definitely see going top 20.

    Swedish defenseman Johan Fransson. He has been outstanding in the SEL lately and it is my opinion that he isn't too far from getting the shot to play with the Swedish national team.
    His skating is eye candy and the way he controlls and carries the puck reminds of Lidström and Kim Johnsson, definitely not saying he will become a superstar in the NHL, just stating there are some similarities. Defensively he could still improve although it should be noted that he leads his team with a +9.

    Me like Fransson very mucho :)

    I have read that the Habs assistant GM Savard wanted to draft Fransson last year, so I would expect them to be interested in him if he still around at 20th or so where they should end up picking.

    These are all prospects that could go 10-20
     
  10. Why didn't Monteal select him then?

    Yepp, he was injuried most of the season.
     
  15. Do you think Montreal would draft another smallish, finesse d-man though? They already have Markov and Konstantin Korneev is in the system.

    IMO, Fransson can be better than both...

    Savard liked him last year, and he's having a great season this year, one would have to think that Savard will like him again this year if he's there when we select unless there's a player they like more. Forget todays size it's the talent that Savard and Timmins will go for.
