@WereRiellyDoingThis @Luke_R These are all still just kids who will get pro development thrown at them.  Onus is on the teams that draft / recognize their potential and will develop their talent

@Savo43 I can't remember Cam's suggestion yesterday, but what about something like JVR for 6th + Larson OR Kessel for NJ pick (unprotected pre lottery... yes, I know they wouldn't do it in reality) + Larson + Clowe?

@Zep2 Ever see Tavares' draft profile?  not a fast skater and D was week... from Hockey's Future:


Tavares is a top-flight talent, perhaps not in the same class as a Sidney Crosby or Alex Ovechkin, but still a player you can build around. Yes, Tavares is not the fastest skater on the ice; yes, his defense -- while improving -- remains passable at best. But what can't be denied is Tavares' incredible hockey sense and offensive ability.


Barb Underhill is not the key, but someone who can help tweak... also, slushy feet shouldn't define the player IMO

@In it to Winnik @DylanJ @happy_gilmour Depends on who is there though, hence the ask on Eichel

@DylanJ @happy_gilmour I know, that's why I'm asking what the deal is on Eichel since I don't know much about him

What is the comparison for Eichel?  Assuming an over payment, what would it cost and would it be worth it?  our 1st (to select Marner?) +  JVR +  Reilly?  So much discussion about the players we have a chance to draft, just wondering about Eichel

@Savo43 For me it's Strome... in part because his brothers (older and younger) will be good, they are competitive, and help drive him :)  Actually, it's because I've been influenced by a lot of the opinions of folks on this site...

@dlbu dlbu E @Cameron19 I would think a JVR to NJ would be a draft day topic.  I would keep Kadri and PH9, in part because I don't think you'd get the value back that we would need (however lower than our expectations that would be).

I think SJ and Dallas may be draft day partners as they must be pretty disappointed this year and want a quick bounce back... man, wish time would just pass quicker!

@philthethrill How are those teams doing in terms of banged up players?  It might be resting time!  Having said that, was expecting us to pick 4th anyway...

@djamon @Sebastian James I think we're in for a min of 2-3 years of pain... depends on home run - does that mean prospect overall, or someone who can step in right away?  Wary of the step in right away type (unless it's McDavid/Eichel)

@In it to Winnik @happy_gilmour Out of the bottom 10, who do you think we could potentially trade with?  (where I wanted the discussion to go)

Out of the bottom 10 teams, who are the ones that truly suck, had some misfortune, and need to shake it up?  Thinking about it because it might tell us who we could trade with.. my categories (i.e. discussion generation)


Truly suck:

* Barfalo

* Arizona

* Edmonton 


Some misfortune/injury:

* Columbus

* Carolina

* Dallas

* Colorado


Needs a shake-up:

* Tarrana

* NJ

* Philly

On an unrelated note, when are we making our "Hating on Habs" site?  Let's focus on positive energy... we have a lot of talented folks here and can come up with creative dissing on Habs comments :)

@Yaknowwhat I understand the sentiments around the core and think all of them will likely go at some point, but part of me hopes we keep Phaneuf, find a different captain (think that will help) and let him thrive.  Lups, Brozak and Kessel can go... if only Lups could stay healthy, I'd keep him too... but change is needed I know

@nrandreycharles Nobody is giving up the first 2 picks.. and I would draft Hanifin... go for BPA, we're too weak all over, and we could use our "more established" talent in other trades.  Looking at Ekblad and Jones over the last couple of years, if Hanifan is the stud everyone says, I think you need to go for it.
