    I agree in general with you. I guess for me, I am talking more about a specific situation where you have an early second round pick and theres a guy sitting there that you think is a top 15-20 talent. I think it could happen in this draft where there are a lot of really good forwards. I think for example if your drafting at #34 and Jan Mysak is sitting there, I would trade Puljujarvi for that pick at this point. But generally speaking I have been against trading Puljujarvi for a second round pick. It doesnt make a whole lot of sense to me.

    Of course in the right situation it could make sense. But even in this circumstance you probably lose on the deal. I'd still say that Puljujarvi has a better than 50 % chance of being better than a typical 15-20 in the draft, This year the guys in that range are pretty solid players but most have their flaws. If a guy drops the second round that means the scouts see those flaws as significant. Such players often do not turn out and fairly rarely end up being impact players.

    In the McDavid draft only Aho has established himself as a top end player. There are 4-5 others who will be solid to very good NHL'er. That's about a 20% chance in a very deep draft of getting a solid NHL'er.

    In 2003 there were about 7 impact players out of the 2nd round. In contrast the 2014 draft has yet to produce a player who is much better than a bottom 6 forward or a bottom 3 defenseman.

    He was doing that in the AHL a bit to. The question is if he can at the NHL level.

    McDavid draft year is a bad example. There are more than 4-5 solid players picked after the 1st round. 2020 draft is probably the closest to 2015 draft.

    McDavid was in the 2015 draft.

    That's a name of a summer league team. But there are two big Finnish handball teams named Cocks and Dicken. Obviously Cocks got the name from the animal and Dicken comes from Drumsö Idrottskamrater.

    Them playing against each other has been named El Romantico and when they face each other in the finals the Finnish media runs headlines such as "Cocks kovana Dickeniä vastaan", which can be translated to both "Cocks tough against Dicken" or "Cocks hard against Dicken".

    Plenty of other ones such as "Cocks imi mehut Dickenistä", which can be translated to both "Cocks wore Dicken out" and "Cocks sucked juices from Dicken". Other ones include (always with a double meaning for children and adults):

    Cocks stayed hard (/tough) in the final
    Oh boy they're hard! Cocks champions again
    Dicken made numb by the throb of Cocks
    Diseased Cocks didn't get hold of stone-hard Dicken

    I guess it's childish, but you don't always need to take things too seriously :)

    Childish or not but I have a new favorite handball team, didn't even know I needed a favorite handball team but go Cocks! Really hope the Cocks can go deep in the playoffs next season.
