    Wow, I’m thrilled with this pick. I didn’t think he’d make it to 12. Very good get.

    Probably just due to his number being 9 but i felt like i see flashes of what could be a bigger Parise potential ceiling in some of those highlights.

    Not concerned with him being a LW. Kids going to be a good one for us.

    If he is our best left winger in a few years nobody will care about handedness.

    This felt a lot like a guy you don’t expect to fall to you when he does you can’t pass him up. I wonder if that leads Fenton to try and get back into the first for one of the late round centers. I love this pick, but we still desperately need to address center long term.

    Best available player; a lot of the centers were taken. I'd like Newhook, but Boldy was a good get.

    We obviously need center prospects, but we also just need talent so I'm happy with pick!

    Don’t hate it at all. Much rather have Boldy than a Pod or Kaliyev. Highly touted for his skill and hockey IQ. This was a smart pick.

    Who dose he compare to?I saw an Evander Kane comparison either tonight,but I've been watching Matt's videos on YouTube the last few days and the name I thought of is a left handed Jeremy Roenick.

    One thing about Boldy too, is that I'm pretty sure the USNTDP coach had him on the 3rd line a lot, to "spread the wealth". So it's not like he was leeching off of Hughes/Caufield on the 1st line or Turcotte on the 2nd, at least at even strength anyway.

    Only concern is that he's a 'two-way' forward. We're going to make him a defensive-forward.

    Yeah, the guy that coached Ovechkin, Backstrom, Semin, Getzlaf and Perry is known for stunting offense.

    Button compared him to Rantanen. I see Marian Hossa

    The team that couldn't develop Coyle, el Nino, Eriksson-Ek, Kunin as nothing more than depth players is known for developing offensive talent.

    Coyle and Nino's developing years were prior to the current regime. Eriksson Ek and Kunin aren't done developing.

    I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but a lot has changed since those guys were in their development years.

    Really? Kunin and Eriksson-Ek both came after Bourdeau signed - As well Bourdeau argued to have Coyle as a 2nd line center, but was overruled for whatever reason. El Nino's best year was the first season under Bourdeau and then he plummeted.
