What we will see on this board by Saturday evening: 1. Colton Gillies goes higher than many posters here think he should. Fans of the team that drafts him say they want to "jump off a cliff" and that "all the scouts should be fired" etc. Five years later Gillies is their avatar. 2. Logan Couture, wherever he's picked, is called a steal by that team's fans. They'll say, "The scouts hadn't factored in the fact that he had mono"- although, oddly, all the armchair HF scouts have. 3. Two U.S.-based high school players who have not yet been noted on any mock draft or top 30 rankings on HF are picked in the 1st round. The teams who pick them are lambasted by their fans for wasting the pick because "We could have had that guy in the 2nd or 3rd round" although in reality about 10 teams were ready to pounce on those players with their next picks. 4. Someone will say, "Why did Alex Plante go so low? He's huge and had good stats!". 5. Some mediocre CHL player who has been on the scouts' radar for years, and was once a hot prospect but really hasn't shown much improvement since. is called a steal by some HF posters when he goes in 4th or 5th round. What those fans don't realize is that he had completely fallen off most NHL teams' draft lists and those teams are actually snickering at the pick. 6. Someone will say "I knew (name team here) would take (name player here) in the 4th round!"- as if they knew exactly who would be taken in the 100 or so picks before their "matching" pick came up. 7. Someone will ask why Aliu went so low- "After all he had a great prospects' game!" 8. Individual and full team selections will be determind as "sharp" or "stupid" completely in relation to where any of CSS/ISS/McKeen's/Redline had players ranked- and without regard to what their club actually thought of the players. (Many HF posters would clearly like their team to follow a scouting service's rankings even if it meant their team drafting a guy they had rated 120th overall in the 2nd round).
