    Jesus ****ing Christ.

    To say that Svech is a little overkill for the OHL would be a massive understatement.

    I’m just happy he’s not going to Montreal. Russians should avoid that place until current GM/coach duo is gone.


    Btw, when was the last time a younger brother was considered significantly better than the older with both being NHL caliber?

    Reinhart's? Sam was always considered better than Max

    The Radulov brothers come to mind.

    Hey hey hey... Claude isn't that bad. If it was still Therrien I'd agree. It's just the GM that's the issue now though

    I think Jordan was considered the best of the Staal brothers when they were prospects.

    Daniel Sedin is a much better goal sorer than Henrik.

    The Canes apparently had Svechnikov do a pre-draft photo shoot in the new third jersey, so that they could hand out posters at the draft party. There was NO doubt who they were taking.

    Love this pick for Carolina. Exactly the kind of player to give a franchise a shot in the arm. Svechnikov is going to be a force in the NHL very very soon.

    Aho, Svech, Necas, TT, (Skinner), Carolina going to look like a new team.

    Hopefully he wakes up the city and we see hype in Carolina next season.

    I’m guessing there was a GM conversation behind the scenes to confirm Buffalo was 100% going with Dahlin, no trades or weird picks.

    I’ve never heard of a team doing a pre-draft photo shoot with a player. Didn’t even realize it was allowable.

    You are correct.

    Hurricanes take Svechnikov with No. 2 pick in NHL draft
