We should finish this off and we're all bored.
1. Joshua Norris 9(30.61%)
2. Jeremy Roy 14(29.17%)
Voted for Ryan. Also like Ferraro.
Overall not too thrilled with the lack of obviously impactful players. We need some high-end talent in our pipeline. We have plenty of mid-level talent. Other than tanking, how can we get that high-end talent? Trade?
They just finished the top 20 Blue Jacket prospects and this list is so feeble in comparison.
Yeah, this list is pretty terrible. ESPN ranked us #30 out of 31 teams (Penguins were last). This may actually be generous. :-(
We could start by drafting less players with high floors/low ceilings and draft more boom/bust prospects. Less Norris prospects and more Yamamoto kinds. Not saying Yamamoto will succeed, but I'd rather take that risk than getting a more than likely bottom six player.
Add DeSimone to the next one.
Yep. But the sharks seemed pleased with how many of their picks make the big show, ie those infographics that used to go around showing avg draft # and nhl played games. My take is its just a lot of mediocrity.
IMO we've had worse. The group we have right now isn't flashy but it's all pretty solid potential. Which is like a huge step up from the no potential years.
However, DW hasn't really drafted a franchise caliber player in a long long time and he's never done it on purpose.
Agreed. How soon people forget when Brandon Mashinter & Ben Ferrio were top sharks prospects.
I went with Gambrell.
Also went with Gambrell
Could be a mid 6 winger
Gambrell hype is sweeping the nation
I was pretty close to picking Gambrell, especially seeing how I picked him last time. Then Joakim envy hit.
