Lately there have been many U.S. teams getting high draft picks and picking U.S. players. Now this is nothing against american players but there have been some picks that I have been mad with not because the players arent good but because there are other players who are better. The islanders essentially traded Olli Jokinen and Loungo (two of the best players in the game) to get a chance to get Pick Dipietro. He has been solid but nowhere near as good as loungo. Not even as good as Heatley or Gaborik drafted after dipietro. Loungo was considered very good before traded. A couple of years of experience in the Chl and a couple of years in the nhl. Now the rangers got Montoya who I thoguht was alright but I thought he was a little overrated despite his junior game against Canada. He was good. Not too much blame there but it seems that these teams drafted these guys because they wanted a US player. Just my opinion so dont take it too seriously. Just wondering about your opinions too. By the way I think Kessell and Crosby would be the best one two punch in the game. If a team could get them both in the draft it would be amazing to watch.
