    Yeah he would also be an excellent player. That duo will absolutely tear it up. Just imagine when we get Hughes too.

    Because we can't possibly have an easy option to pick and people love being contrary to the given rankings.

    You'll laugh, but the 2 reasons are because of the CHL, and because of the WJC


    if i had a gun to my head and had to choose between the two of Zadina or Wahlstrom, i probably also pick wahlstrom..

    which is why all the ktachuk talk is disapointing not in the sense that were ****ed if we get him, but why isnt the conversation including wahlstrom more at 3 is whats puzzling everyone, people are even taking kotka at 3 before Wahlstrom

    If Bergevin was able to dip back into the top 10 with a trade we could take both and put em on a line with Poehling.. sigh

    At the spot he's going you're likely better off getting a center or D that may have dropped. Wahlstrom and Farabee would be great IF we didn't have serious needs at center and D.

    More of a commentary about Tkachuk being good with Wahlstrom, a lesser valued player in the draft would also do the same job and be a more plausible target.

    There aren't really many game breaking power forwards in the game today.

    Ovechkin is one.

    If a player plays wing, I'd rather he project to Pasternak, Radulov, Patrick Kane, Kucherov, Laine Giroux, Hall, Kessel, Gaudreau, Panarin, or Voracek.

    At 15 is when you consider Berggren, Lundestrom, Hallander, Farabee, Sandin, Alexeyev

    I mean yeah, he's good value around that spot but you have to think he's gone before that.. and Veleno is a no go, most scout quotes indicate he's a late first at this point, may not be a center and only has third line upside .that's right in line with what I've seen this year.

    Im a fan, he reminds me of gallagher but at center and with better hands. Id take that at 15 for sure.

    I'll throw it back out. Don't like his hockey sense at all even if he's a physical specimen.

    I think if anyone is severly lacking hockey IQ on that U18 squad, it's Bode Wilde. The guy has rocks for brains.

    Miller's issues are overblown, and I thought he really was starting to put it all together at the under-18's. He's got good vision and his physical attributes do him well on defense, even if it needs improvement.

    I took Wilde off my shortlist (Miller isn't on it either), I think when all was said and done only Stastney from the American blue line made it for me

    I like Stastney too. That blueline has flaws, but I think it looks worse than it is because of coaching. American fans seem to not think very highly of the coaching staff there, specifically the defensive structure.

    K'Andre, Nando, Bulat, Wyatte (who spells Wyatt with an e), Montana. The battle for best first name is strong this year.

    That's a sweet spot. We need a pick there.

    from what i've been reading, it seems like the problem with this draft is a guy you pick at 15, you might get someone better at 25 or 35. Seems like a great year to have as many picks as possible in the 15-35/40 range. If we had a creative thinking GM, which I know is fantasy land talk, and to be honest I just don't know enough about this draft but it sounds like it would be a great year to trade down your highest picks to mid to late 1st (or acquire one in that range) and then try to trade up with you late 2nd, 3rd round picks. For a team that has so many holes to fill on the farm system it least in theory sounds like a good bet.

    Because most think the grass is greener with different players.
