    Hendrix begins his playoffs on April 23rd, so probably no playing with the bears for him sadly

    Garin Bjorklund seems to be doing pretty well in the WHL this year. He's 3rd in save % among goalies who've played 10 or more games with a .916, not bad for a 6th round pick.

    Djurgarden was eliminated from the SHL playoffs on Thursday so Bobby Nardella should be headed to Hershey soon as well.

    It's just residual sucksge from "one of the worst trades of all time".

    Everything in the Caps organization is tainted now. I'm just waiting for the inevitable relocation to Quebec City.

    A point per game is the pace to lead the AHL in scoring. His 8 goals balanced for games played in top 20 in the league. He is 3rd on the team in points, only 1pt off 2nd. I think some context is valuable here. He was supposed to be in junior hockey this season, was he not? His team does not score a lot but he is already a leader and go to guy on his team.

    Some center goes down, CMM goes up in playoffs and scores that cup winning goal with his wrister. Clear as day.

    Goaltender Braden Holt added to the USA U18 team. Must draft name right there.

    Magnusson has left Malmö. Rumored to be joining AIK in HockeyAllsvenskan.

    I haven't heard much about Magnusson since the draft. How has been playing?

    Nice playmaking on both cases. I especially liked how the defenseman trips over his own stick and lands flat on his back at the end of the second clip.

    Picked up (digitally) Hockey News' Future Watch issue.

    Haven't read it in ages, so have no idea how reliable/good their rankings are.

    They have the Caps ranked 23rd overall.

    Top 10 Prospects (rank in top 100 overall):
    McMichael (14)
    LaPierre (47)
    Alexeyev (99)
    Fehervary
    Protas
    Johansen (yes really)
    Leason
    Clark
    Malenstyn
    Pilon

    Owen Power the unanimous No. 1 in TSN’s mid-season draft rankings - TSN.ca

    McKenzie's mid-term rankings. Othmann, Olausson, Robertsson and Svechkov are not bad as far as late first rounders go, albeit none all that tall. No regrets making that deal either way. Johnston, Korczak, Schmidt, Hreschuk, Duke, Poltapov, Kirsanov, Grushnikov, Dach or Helenius with the second rounder could be solid value. Not an overly remarkable draft class overall but perhaps serviceable depth with some mid-to-late gems overlooked.

    it sucks that we traded our first since we'd maybe be able to get raty depending on playoff performance, hopefully soon we stop trading picks

    Still pretty doubtful he'd last until their pick barring a tumbling standings finish and even if he did he may only be an Eller type at best. Outside of the top 15 or so there's really no one from that next immediate grouping that I'd pine for, which suggests some depth issues IMO thereafter. Chibrikov on down would be fine for their general range but are very likely middle six adds. You take the first-liner over two middle sixers any day.

    Two goalies in his top 14 is interesting. Add in another four in the third round range and I wonder if the Arizona pick may be spent on one. It's probably time again to invest in one they like. (It'd also be funny to take Doan with Arizona's pick.) BPA all day of course but have to figure that size, skating and IQ (oh, just the total package) will be preferred. I really like Kirsanov in the second round if he lasts. He could be another Orlov.

    Bad news for most, but probably good news for Connor McMichael.
