eleventy billion.. and four.
I was close...
Hmmm what would the chances of a NA prospect ranked #224 to be picked at-or-by that spot? A Friend of mine is Paul Fenton (Jr.)(224) and his dad is the DoPP for Nashville...I'm curious.
Its impossible to say. All it takes is one team to like someone, and teams go by their own rankings NOT CSB's.
Every year you will see guys ranked that low or not even ranked be picked anywhere from the third round on.
You will also see people ranked anywhere from around #90 or so go unpicked.
Once the second round hits, the rankings are usually out the window.
BUT..to answer your question as logically as possible, with 291 picks in the draft, once you factor in Goalies and Europeans, #224 doesnt quite fit the bill (although it may be close with all the opt-outs). But, like I said that means almost nothing. It just takes 1 team to take a chance on a kid.
