    Simple enough question. Who do you think has the best shot at being a steal for your team and briefly why?

    For Edmonton I'd have to say Gernat. He is very raw right now, but he is almost identical to Marincin(but needs more time to develop). Has the potential to be a good 2 way dman with tons of size

    Considering Washington didn't have a pick until the 4th round, if any of them reach the NHL it'll be a steal. :laugh:

    That being said, Haar looked very impressive for a 7th round pick at the development camp a little while back. He could end up as a powerplay specialist from the back end.

    Kucherov in the 2nd could be a huge steal

    I thought Danil Sobchenko was going to be a huge steal for San Jose... RIP.

    A little early, but Miika Salomaki has impressed for Nashville.

    I think the Oilers one has to be Klefbom. I know he was taken in the first round but he really should have gone higher. Redline said right after the draft that it was the steal of the draft.

    He's a high-risk, high-reward pick, but he could be a top pairing-dman.

    Daniel Catenacci in the 3rd
    Brad Navin in the 7th


    DC was the 1st overall pick in the OHL draft a few years back. Smaller, very fast [faster lap time than Grabner's All-Star lap], great offensive abilities.

    Navin is a 6'2" power forward who would've been HS hockey player of the year two years straight had he not been injured. He basically put up lacrosse numbers, registering over 3 points per game. Headed to NCAA.

    I think for the wings it's Marchenko...7th rounder and is probably going to captain Russia's WJC team this year.

    Couturier. No questions. To me, he was the 3rd best forward prospect after RNH and Landeskog and he still fell to 8th. We got DAMN lucky.

  13. hamilton and khokhlachev :laugh:

    seriously, we were pretty lucky with both. Hamilton is just what we needed in this draft class (outside off larsson of course) and koko has some seriuos skill, I expected him to go first round.

    Shane Prince. Stood out big time at the rookie tournament against older competition. Amazing vision and playmaking also showed a physical side to his game.

    Leaf fans will likely post Josh Leivo, Tom Nilsson or Tony Cameranesi.

    Reid Boucher andfor Reese Scarlett for the Devils. Reid is an absolute sniper and will be playing on a line with Galch and Yako this year. Reese could have gone in the second.

    Rocco Grimaldi at 32.

    If he can make it work at the NHL level, despite his size (which I believe he will do), he should be an excellent 2nd line forward.

    For the Islanders Brendan Kichton in the 5th. He was tied for the WHL defenseman scoring lead(playing like 7 games less). From the couple times I seen him play since we drafted him in exhibition games he seems to have enough defensive awareness although I am guessing being 5'11 will be the big knock on him

    I think if he hits full potential he'll be better than a second line forward.

    Agreed. I really wanted him with the Musil pick (31st overall).

    Not sure if Zibanejad could be considered a steal because he was taken so high, the Filatov trade was a steal.

    He looked so good in the rookie games. Strange that he slipped so far.
