    In the universe that Mete is three years older and playing in a NHL top 4, Id say its pretty likely. Unless you think York can play in the NHL tomorrow and do better than Mete? If so he should be a top 10 lock.

    Does anyone which channel will air the draft tomorrow ? I've looked up RDS' schedule and it looks like they won't be presenting it...

    You're lucky for that. RDS has no one who knows the draft.

    TVA has the right for the NHL( that included draft, award, the Saturday night game and playoff) RDS has right for the regular habs game and nothing else

    Not a fan of RDS either, was just easier to access RDS than TVA Sports (which is an extra for most telecom companies).

    Looks like I will be listening to Sportsnet :)

    Man, so we have it narrowed down to about 12 guys to take at 15.

    Someone raised a good point, and I had noticed this, that the Habs have not take an undersized D in round 1. Wonder if that holds.

    We have to go for a guy with top upside. We really need that. Cant aim for mediocre players.

    FWIW, Harley, McMichael and Kaliyev(shocker) had weak interviews, apparently. Which I suppose goes in line with the pace concerns each seem to have.

    Harley having a bad interview is suprising as high as some people seem to be on him, this would seem to indicate he isn't an option at 15

    Yeah the scouts mentioned they didn't knock him too far down as they think the rest is excellent.

    I'm already certain I will be only tepid on who we draft, but I won't have a Poehling reaction for those who want to see me go on a drunken rant again.

    York is 2-3 yrs away from the NHL, he couldnt even lace Mete's shoes... We will see in 2-3 yrs from now, but right now, thats laughable to say York would be better than him...

    At the same age. I would figure that is abundantly obvious when comparing prospects to current NHLers. But here we are.

    Okay but Mete was a 4th rounder.. York is a projected 1st rounder.

    Okay? My point is Mete can’t be the long term solution on the top pairing. Someone piped in saying he’s better than York, which is asinine if we are talking potential.

    Nail Yakupov was head and shoulders better than both and here we are.

    Mete could've done considerably worse on a first pair for the lion's share of the season and it still would've been impressive for his age.

    I’m pumped for tomorrow, this is the first time in years that I’ll be able to semi-follow the draft on the day of. Been playing catch up 4-5 days later for far too long.

    The little I saw I generally liked but I get the concerns. His tools are really good but maybe not quite good enough to be a real top producer. Still his floor just looks really good to me. Even if the offense doesn't FULLY translate I think that's a damn good D man there. He feels like a guy who's a safe pick but also has legit upside.

    I'd be happy with him but I just haven't seen the plays where he looks low IQ to have my opinion worth much. I think I'd rather Seider but I haven't seen enough of him either. As far as D goes I think those are the only guys I'd be happy with. Really hoping for a forward to fall. Horrible feeling we're picking York though. I'd trade down to pick Lassi though. At least there's exciting tools there.

    Probably won't be able to watch that before the draft. Thanks for the heads up though.

    Montreal needs offense, talent... did I say skill? We need someone that wants to score on that power play, we need movement with the puck in the defensive zone (reason for Benn to go besides too much money).
