    If Larsson is selected before the Bruins have an opportunity to speak, will they draft a need in Murphy (or trade down a draft him) or pick another of the higher ranked players that will be available at that time, such as Couturier or Landeskog ?

    I would imagine Bsoton would key on Landeskog and Larsson...if both are gone, they may trade down, depending on whether they like Murphy, Hamilton, etc. and where other teams might be going with their picks

    I don't understand.. Boston owns Toronto's pick that won't be in the top 5.
    Toronto won't finish bottom five though..... :handclap:

    He's a Leafs fan pulling your chain. Don't worry about it.

    The Bruins would probably go BPA because you can always add defensemen some other way and add a Landeskog/Couturier/RNH in the draft.

    They should only draft a Sweed or they will trade down and pick up another prospect or another 2nd rounder

    I seriously hate to burst your bubble, but Couturier, Landeskog and RNH will be top 4 locks. Toronto is not worse than the Devils, Islanders, Senators and Oilers.

    Considering they're playing better now than earlier in the year, I think Bruins fans should be more worried about Armia, Huberdeau, Strome, Saad, and potentially Murphy.

    Torontos pick is going to be 30th overall so I don't think Larsson or Murphy will fall that low in the draft. ;)

    I seriously hate to burst your bubble but there's a draft lottery and the Leafs are not locks to finish higher than the Sens. The Leafs are always playing better than they were earlier in this year, we've been hearing the same tune from Leafs fans for years how the team is different now, the reality is the Leafs will probably come crashing down to earth soon and go on another nice losing skid. Anytime you want to you can leave the thread so it can get back on topic.

    I can't believe how Leafs fans reaction are always garbage. Dude, i don't care if your team is good or sucks or what ever useless point your are trying to defend.

    I wrote this thread because I wanted to know : Is Murray the Bruins' man if Larsson is out.
    I did not wrote this thread to say : The Leafs are awful and will finish dead last.


    Why can't Leafs fans just chilll about everything arounds their team ? I don't give a s-h-i-t about the Leafs. This thread is about what the Bruins are looking for in the upcoming draft and the Leafs' pick could possibily land the guy i'm talking about. So I don't get the point of saying they are better than team X ou worse than team Y.

    Thank you

    Honestly murphy should be their #1 choice and most likely one, we'll probably finish 4th to 9th last and with huberdeau, strome, etc rising murphy will be likely available whenever they pick. Wouldn't be surprised if the bruins have already contacted him to start slowly gaining weight so there's a possibility he could be running their pp by next year.

    Every year we hear best player available, best player available, and every year we see teams draft based on organizational need, especially when there isn't a clear-cut "one guy is significantly better".

    Personally, I think Larsson will go first overall and his WJC sealed that fate. Couturier wasn't that impressive and you look at the 3 teams who are bottom right now -- all need that potential franchise blueliner much moreso than they need a forward. The big question is -- whether they can even come up with a price to trade up to get Larsson, or whether they settle for Murphy.

    you're the one that needs to chill... it was just one Leafs fan, saying that the guys you listed likely won't be available.

    You did essentially say that one of Landeskog or Couturier will be available so he has a perfectly reasonable reason to say that possibly none of the top 4 will be available? If they're all gone, then yeah, the bruins probably will, but him saying that you shouldn't assume that a player or two from the top 4 will still be available makes sense. That would be why he's saying it, get the point?

    Lol, everything will be okay, don't get too upset. I apologize for trying to give you some insight on your teams draft pick.
    What I said was 100% relevant to this thread. I was telling you that I don't think Boston takes either of the guys you mentioned because they simply can't. Would you like me to lie and say no Boston will select Larsson because the leafs will somehow manage to be worse than the Devils this season?

    Where ever the Bruins draft, I'm thinking they will go with the best player available. Maybe they do a swap with another team a la Ottawa and St. Louis last year, who knows?

    I'm guessing that Mgt. isn't too worried given that they are getting a great asset no matter what.
