    They aren't kidding about going hunting for character players. First Joseph, now Entwistle. Go-go all out hustle balls to the wall player.

    He's my favourite prospect, limited offence but he'll be a fan favourite.

    I would have taken Popugaev.

    He lead Canada in scoring at the U18s. I think there's much more offense in him than people give him credit for.

    Anyways, he's a sure fire NHL player. Whether he makss it as a 4th liner or 2nd liner is the question.

    Mono dropped him big time. Also wasn't given any power play time. This coming season will be different.

    Mackenzie Entwistle is a STEAL by Arizone. Tim Bernhart/Jeff Twohey can't believe he was there. Not many I can guarantee as NHL'ers...He is!

    I'd have felt better about the draft if they took this kid 44 and Westerlund at 69

    IMO, Entwistle went exactly where he should have gone in the third. I would have been less annoyed if he was taken at 44 instead of Westerlund, but still annoyed, given that Ikonen and Formenton are still on the board.

    I have to say I am pretty jealous you guys nabbed Entwhistle. He's a favourite of mine playing here in Hamilton and I was hoping Boston would take him. When someone says they try to model their game after Patrice Bergeron, you have to listen. I guess we have enough centres in the prospect pool.

    Aside from the Joseph pick, this is the only one that was really in line with where I had the player ranked. There's a bit of potential here—he's young, big and tenacious, not to mention right-handed—but there were some more dynamic names on the board even at 69. Still, you could do a lot worse with a 3rd round pick.

    I generally don't think it's wise to spend even mid round picks on low ceiling guys, as those are the easiest to acquire and they're not really any "safer" than guys with top 6 upside, but in this case, I think Entwistle could at least be a fairly high end 3rd liner, not unlike what Crouse showed at his best this past season. The two of them could make up a pretty formidable forechecking tandem someday. I don't think he'll ever be much more than a 35 point player, but with what else he brings to the table, that could be a valuable contributor.

    I don't like how "safe" our picks felt either. Tim's interview actually made me feel worse about it. Even they don't see anyone with top six upside in our draft. Not one homerun swing. I feel like we bunted instead of trying for even a double. Seems like we left a lot of talent on the board and took size and try.

    No... Chayka described POJ as having no upper limit. He is a home run swing.

    Am I the only on who hates the characterization of picks as safe or risky? It seems like if a player is more offensive, then he is "risky" and "safer" if he is more inclined to defense.

    Except that's not how it works in real life. Players have a certain level of talent, and a possibility of surpassing players with further development. Significantly improving and surpassing other players is unusual, but it's treated as if its the norm. It's just as hard to project defensive play to the NHL level as offensive play, that's why I think the safe and risky labels don't make sense.

    I got the sense that the guys who they think could possibly be really good players are POJ and Westlund.
