    Uhhh. Ok. I would like this pick a lot more if they didn't take a goalie two seconds ago.

    Hoping to hit on one of the 2 goalies.

    Tomek is going to a great program.

    After neglecting the goaltending position for more than a decade, finally a couple of high quality prospects. I'm fine with that.:)

    Hextall must be new around here. He's supposed to be selecting unnecessary agitator/enforcer types around this point in the draft.

    :sarcasm:


    Dig the pick.

    Hold on, more correctly, I dig (all) the pick(s) (so far).

    He also said he wanted to take a couple goalies. Very pleased with this pick in general.

    I like this pick. We really don't have any goalie prospects. Now we have two and hope one pans out. Stolarz was pretty underwhelming this year, I don't see him as a future starter.

    Great Move, some people had him ranked as the possible best goalie in the draft. IMO Hextall's draft has been almost perfect so far. We needed depth and goddamit he got it.

    Yep. We need some forwards now, but I'd rather get the d-men and goalies first anyway, since they take longer to develop.

    I would have rather taken a second goalie with a later pick, but we'll see how it pans out.

    Yeah and considering the group we have currently in the nhl is pretty young and we have guys like cousins, aube-kubel and koneckny I'm very excited. Maybe we can pipe dream hexy can con some teams into giving us some young guys up front for our cap dumps lol

    I like. Goalies aren't easy to predict or develop so getting a couple of good bets is nice. Konecny is a great add to our forward pool and our forwards at the NHL level are mostly set for a couple years. Our D pool is set. So might as well.

    loading up on defense and goaltending.
    I like. I guess he is going to be in line to be the starter at North Dakota?

    McIntyre gone, so should be there for him to take if he's good enough.
