    I agree with you 1,000%.

    I always want to draft the BPA. Sergachev and Caufield are good examples of just drafting talent. I did have mixed feelings about KK though. Center is such an important position. So while after KK was drafted I said he better be the best player available, I also said this one time I'll give them a pass if he turns out to be a decent center.

    But yes, I hope they change their stupid policy of drafting for need. Not holding my breath on that one. But hopefilully Cole and Sergachev make a light go off.

    As for KK, I was only using Zacha to make a point. He went from a 20-30 point to a 55 point player at 24. The point is your production can jump after 24, 25. Hertl amd Couturier are better examples. O'Reilly went from a 55-65 point player to close to a pp player at 27/28.

    Kk is one of the youngest players in the league. Let's be patient to see what he becomes as he continues to develop physically. He will probably get that extra half step of explosiveness as his legs get stronger and be harder to knock off the puck. Tkachuk was blessed with those physical attributes at a young age. Let's see what KK is when he hits his physical prime.

    Well you have to go with players who are available. It's nice to tell your GM "I want an impact player at #3" but if that worked you could do the same thing at pick #84. Who would you have preferred in 2018? So far Tkachuk and Hughes have had more impact, maybe Farabee. Tkachuk was blasted on this board. Zadina was the consensus pick, and he seems fine, so far.

    It's a little early to decide Kotkaniemi's ceiling. It's also still possible that the best player taken in the draft hasn't made a mark, or even played in, the NHL yet.

    I'm not thrilled that the habs picked perceived need over BPA, but so far JK doesn't look worse than Zadina, and as a potentially physical center he's higher value even if he ends up with fewer points. Hughes would have been interesting but who knows what the habs would have done with him. Tkachuk is looking like a steal so far, though we'll see if he has already hit his ceiling (not a bad ceiling) or if the Senators benefited from the habs choice. In that aspect I appreciate the choice: Tkachuk was physically mature and high floor, Kotkaniemi was improving sharply and still growing.

    To summarize: you can only pick players who are available, in a weak year a high pick will be disappointing, and you are judging players at a point in time, future path is not always visible. The habs have made some really terrible picks, especially ones like McCarron that look like "get the best big center available with this pick even if he'd still be on the board in 2 rounds and there are way better options" but I don't see that in 2018, even if it doesn't work out it's a reasonable thought process.

    I can't wait for the team to be healthier, I'm pretty sure our "third line" will be

    Anderson - KK - Caufield once Tatar and Gally come back. And that sounds like a nightmare to match up against.

    true... though in CC's case, i suspect that the combination of his very small stature and the question of how much his productivity was tied to playing with Hughes, contributed to the doubt about his future impact.

    Regardless of whether he was playing with Hughes or not, a shot like that, that’s very very rare.

    Truly exciting prospect with an elite trait. I absolutely love his humble nature. You can tell right away that he’s not going to be the guy who stretches his shifts(looking at you KK) and plays for himself. Suzuki has the same mentality and that's extremely important for youngster going forward.

    I was thinking Draisaitl - since he's got hands and finish like McDavid.

    But yeah, we need to get him a playmaker.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up playing with Toffoli and Suzuki.

    If Drouin can get his stuff figured out he's the type of stickhandler and passer who would buy Cole time to get open and feed him the biscuit. Big If though.

    Right shot Anderson signed 7 years
    Right shot Toffoli signed 4 years
    Right shot Gallagher signed 6 years
    Right shot Caufield just signed 3 years

    Right shot Armia UFA , Right shot Perry UFA (re-sign at least 1 of those guys plz), we also have 2 righty centers lol Suzuki and Evans..

    Meanwhile our Left shot LWs is in complete SHAMBLES
    I hope Tylers ok with being perma LW lol... Weve got Anderson at LW now

    Wonder if CC can play LW too, its gonna be a logjam at RW for the forseeable future

    He couldve been playing with Mackinnon right now if we had picked Newhook over him.
