    I'm sure those glasses will be a turn off on a trade deal.

    You'd have to say it had zero value for it to not invalidate the point you made.

    why? wins against replacement/games played can be used to prove the point that the guys drafted were servicable in that they played games but the weakness is that depending on the strength of the team, some guys would play more on some teams than had they been on others. I'm looking at impact, specific needs, and not letting "character" get too much in the way.

    In other words, character guys like the Sean Kuraly's of the world are needed and should be drafted, but you can't win it all with a whole team of them.

    Not picturing this.

    Not trying to expose anything, but are you trying to tell me that you don’t enjoy creating a bit of chaos on the board with your contrarian “hot takes”??

    We all do it sometimes...


    some more than others.

    John “Don’t Call me Jack Reacher” Beecher is tied for second tallest player taken in the 1st round, and is the heaviest at 209 pounds.

    Take THAT Cole Caufield.

    I meant to convey that your post cracked me up. I forgot to include emoji that stood for "that's a funny and accurate quip". :oops:

    No worries, I assume that all of my posts crack you up.

    IMO, you're one of the best posters here.

    It's a rate stat. Measuring the success of a team's draft per game is absurd. If WAR is worth a damn, use it to measure success by comparing total WAR.

    The kid is a mountain of a man. I mean he isn't wearing no double XL with those Shoulders.

    Im pretty excited about this pick. Its next to the last pick in the first round and I feel its a high value pick as far as having him playing in the NHL He's Going to Michigan where he'll get even stronger and have more of an opportunity to flourish offensively. He's already is a great skater with size and a mean streak, and maybe just maybe once he's given the chance to play top line minutes he might bring his game to even a higher level.

    At worst he becomes a third line player, but his ceiling is top six, who'll put fear in the opposition every shift he takes.

    Nothing like putting a little pressure on the kid :laugh:

    My post was in jest, but to be honest, I wasn’t as high on Caufield as some. When I watched DeBrincat (without McDavid), I was like, Wow, this kid is a player.

    I watched Caufield at the Worlds and said to my son, “He’s ok, but pretty sure you could score 50 playing with Hughes, Turcotte, and company”.

    Let’s see how he looks without those guys before comparing him to Mats.

    No doubt that Sweeney has had some questionable picks, but I just don't think the time to criticize him for a particular pick is hours after he makes it. In the 2015 draft for best example, most people here were ecstatic to get Zboril (he was consensus pick in our range) while others were coining Debrusk as "DeBust" moments after the pick. Looking back at those few days following the pick many of us on here look idiotic because the fact is:

    1) We have zero idea what these players say in the interviews - this is a large part of why people slide and why people are drafted higher

    2) None of us watch juniors enough (unless getting paid to do it) to know how a player actually looks - we just go off of scouting reports.

    Lastly, the consensus is wrong sometimes. Yakupov is the prime recent example....

    Agreed on studnicka. I’m fairly confident he will have a solid career and be a 2nd line center for the Bruin in the post bergy/krejci era

    Fans are fans (of both teams), so take it FWIW, but there are a lot of Hab’s fans that were not thrilled with the Caufield pick because they feel the team is “too small”.

    Those are all fair points, actually. I would like to see a more even mix of consensus picks and DS best judgment picks and with both, not have a character litmus test, but...as I said, I'm not an expert in this area, I just play one on this great stage we know and love as the LF!!!!

    Baring trades, this is where the Bruins pick and some options:
    3rd - 92 - Michal Teply 6'3" RW (Lauko was a great pick last year in the 3rd so maybe Teply also slips to the Bruins)
    Martin Hugo Has - 6'4" RD (backup plan if Teply doesn't slip)
    5th - 154 - Dustin Wolf - 6'0" G (I don't know if they will get Hayden Hawkey who hasn't signed with EDM yet so becomes UFA in 2 months so may take G here)
    Tomas Mazura - 6'3" C (might be better option than Wolf, broken collar bone set back development for 1 year but has Boom potential)
    6th - 185 - Ondrej Psenicka - 6'5" RW
    7th - 192 -Sean Dhoogie - 5'3" (I just want someone to draft a 5'3" player. lol)

    Every statistic can be manipulated to get point of view across.

    My main hope for today is that DS can swing a trade to move up to an early second round pick. There are some fantastic players still left. Something involving Zboril I would consider if any takers could be found.
