    Thank god we came back and went a different direction with the 2018 draft.

    Look at what guys like Barratt have done since this draft. No clue why we weren’t going for players like that because they were out there. For a rebuilding team this was a very questionable draft in execution. Hell, I might even like our 7th rounder from 2018 better than anyone we took rounds 2-7 in 2017.

    2017 was told as weak draft overall. We'll see that on becoming years, but i don't expect anyone getting lower-round gems from there.

    Getting 2 players pan out per draft, is an OK result. From better overall draft you should get more. Rasmussen and Lindström are looking good.

    Time will tell how the draft looks in 3-4 years, but in general I think with 11 picks and 6 in the top-100 expectations should be higher than an average 7 pick draft.

    I hope for Gallant to be solid 4th liner

    He has a back injury - it's why he didn't play in the summer. Not that he can't perform because of talent or drive, it's injuries.

    I saw Zablocki play briefly with the Victoria Royals two years ago. I cannot see him in the NHL at anytime. Minor professional at best.

    We could have gotten Samurokov, just like we could have gotten Subban, Kucherov, Konecny, literally any steal we didn't pick. That's the draft. No point in whining about it.

    Not really hard to understand. Tons of picks and much more the majority never make the NHL or play more than a small handful of games, when drafted in the 3rd round and later. Every team has a big lists of guys they missed on, and we are no better or worse than any other team. That is why HF's obsession with all draft picks is ridiculous, as 3rd round and below are massively overrated in worth on here. Which is why most teams have no issue trading them away, as they are basically throw ins.

    Zablocki's father was the RCMP head that dealt with the Humboldt Bronco's crash.
