Who should the Ducks take with the 16th pick?

Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by Randall Graves*, Apr 22, 2007.

  1. Just curious at what you guys think would be good picks at 16.

    Seems like Bill Sweatt is a kind of player the Ducks like is he a good possibility to be available? Could we finally see our scouting staff go euro and take a shot at a guy like Luca Cunti?

    this seems likes a ducks board thread.
     
  3. Umm why? I am asking a question about the players that may be drafted in that area. Care to add anything worth a damn now?

    Depends on who's available, of course.These kinds of topics are tough to do unless it's in the 5 minutes between the 15th and the 16th picks. They'll probably end up taking someone who will develop in to a superstar, much like every other Duck prospect...lucky guys.

    Maybe McDonough is around then? Don't know, but they should take a defenseman.

    Luca Cunti would still be there at 16 imo, he'd be a good choice. And with all the young studs the Ducks have you don't have to rush him.

    TBAY - Shane O'Brian trade.
     
  8. What about Petrecki if he's still around? Is he considered a high risk or a safe pick?

    did they get a first for him:biglaugh:

    anyway. if there is no clear BPA i would go with a d-man. niedermayer and pronger arent getting any younger and in about 4-5 years when the guy they pick is ready to contribute they will probably be long gone. if shattenkirk is available i would go with him, if not. nick petrecki.

    sorry for dobbel posting. this came in while I wrote my post.

    i think its safe to say he will play in the NHL. the question is will he be a good offensive player in the NHL.

    I doubt he'll last until 16.
