Tidbits from Basu's article on Timmins' conference call. First off, says this will the most Trevor Timmins draft that the team's ever had, take that the way you want He starts off by sharing an interesting answer TT gave two years ago when he was asked what he learned most about 2013 and his lackluster 2nd rounders. His answer made it sound like he was forced to prioritize size and that Lehkonen kind of prospects would have been his type of picks (then that tells me a guy like Petan was probably on his radar given that he was the poster boy of going for talent that year). Basu also speculates that a guy like Thrower, who MB raved about after his selection, might have been more of a GM pick than a HS pick. Basu also talks about the change in mindset over drafting by needs last year and how this year might not be the case. He believes that this will give more freedom to the team to go with BPA. Since GMs usually attend the U18s and that they have been cancelled this year, there's less possibility of MB influencing some of the picks that will be made. GMs will have less of a sample to go on. Also less pressure of turning it into a show for the crowd e.g. Leblanc pick or 2013 when NJ traded for Schneider. Finally, if the draft is done virtually, there are less chances of picks being traded (trading up or down) which means Timmins won't get c-blocked à la Hillis.
