What are your thoughts on your own teams first round pick?
Two words: Adam ****ing Larsson!!!!!!!!
I 'm very pleased with Biggs, and I'm on the fence on whether I like the Percy pick or not.
Very happy with J.T. Miller. Hard grinding American who can cause havoc in the crease.
Two more words: Dougie friggin' Hamilton to the Stanley Cup Champion Boston Bruins! Thank you, Kessel! Thank you, Burkie. What a friggin' month!
....OK, that might be more than two words.
Finally have a possibly great blue liner again. Lets get the season started!
Three words Devils got Larsson! Not thrilled with Strome at 5. but is was a fairly muted draft year. No Hall, Hedman, Tavares, Stamkos.
Pretty happy with Ryan Nugent Hopkins. I hear he was ranked fairly high.
Dunno much about the KlefBOM!, but he's probably the next Ray Bourque or something.
You know, I'm happy with Bartschi. I wanted Feaster to draft a forward, and we got a killer one. I'm pleased.
If you asked me before the draft who I wanted I would have said RNH and Klefbom... so i have absolutely no complaints whatsoever!
The Canucks may not be Canada's team, but they're definitely Denmark's.
To be honest, Im kinda disappointed that Burke passed on Puempel to draft Biggs. Puempel seems like top 6 scoring talent while Biggs seems to top out as a very physical 3rd liner.
Maybe he'll prove me wrong, but I think Biggs over Puempel was a bad decision on Burke's part,
He's gonna be a superstar
Glad we landed Beaulieu, but somewhat I wanted a forward...cannot complaint though
We had maybe the worst forward prospect corps in the league and then just added three forwards in the first round, so that's pretty solid. I think they really wanted Strome but Zibanejad is a nice consolation.
Plus I love the Puempel pick so long as they're comfortable with his injury history. A bit of a risk but a potential home run given his talent.
All in all a pretty good day.
Avs fan who crapped his pants in excitement I am.
I had no idea we'd take Scheifele but after reading up on him I'm very pleased with the pick. Looks like the Winnipeg brass sees enough in him to pass on Couturier.
Moving up to pick him up was probably the worst. I feel Burke is ruining Leafs' future
Ryan Murphy =
Very happy with Kitchener Ranger Hurricane Ryan Murphy. It sounds like JR got a steal and didn't have to use any assets to move up to get him. A blue-chip D prospect... good stuff.
Tyler Biggs is one of those guys you love to have around come playoff time, so I'm very happy he's in the system.
Stuart Percy I was a little less than enthused with but Leaf scouts seemed pretty high on him so what do I know.
Like Jensen. Interested to see how he does in the OHL next season with the experience he got this year.
