For those of you who got to watch women's track and field instead:
I got Heidi-bowled.
Solid value pick for you guys. He was my 3rd rated WHL player and fell about 10 spots more than I expected.
My thoughts on him:
Agreed RS. I was quite disappointed when WPG passed on both him and Noah Juulsen at #25. Great write up.
couple of TV features produced in Kelowna on Merkley:
just before draft: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AiGls5HZR4U
In February: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4EddJUqpUA
That was all Keith Gretzky
when does the second round start?
I love the Merkley pick, think we were lucky he fell that far. I do think it's ironic though that on the day DM tried so hard to make Gagner disappear, he drafts the second coming of him.
Doesn't Merkley have much more of an edge to his game?
Yes. A lot more.
Seems like an odd comparison then.
Ah, so you noticed
He must've meant play with the puck? Lanky is usually pretty spot on.
Nick is my second cousin. Cool to see someone in the extended family get drafted into the show. I'll be a supporter of his all the way.
Love this pick
Want to get a new home Merkley jersey. What number will he wear?
Cherry on the top will be V coming back to the desert. Thank you Chicago for the cup, that will be all.
Yeah, from what i ve watched, he's closer to marchand/oshie than gagner.
Merkley seems like the kind of guy who wouldn't have a problem punching a guy a foot taller than him if he felt the need to
That's awesome. btw: are you really in Monterrey MX?
I haven't seen Merkley play really at all, but watching the highlights and how he's described makes me think he's the perfect hybrid of Ray Whitney and Vernon Fiddler.
Merkley pick is fantastic...he's a perfect RW compliment to all of the LW snipers we have on the team.
Perlini/Dvorak/Merkley sounds good to me in a couple years.
The more I watch of him the more I love this pick.
Coyotes' scouts see him as a RW, not a center, at the pro level.
