@Cosmos1973 @Tim Horton @Murph2417 @CanuckUKinToronto @Armchair GM  I know your not really talking about specific players but Couturier was projected to be a top 5 pick and scored 40 goals in the Q... and he has been easily better than anyone drafted after him in his draft, so that was quite clearly the best pick. http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/draft/nhl2011e.html

@Cosmos1973 @Murph2417 @CanuckUKinToronto @Armchair GM  Its incredibly rare to get an 80 pt player after the 5th pick. I was going to say Logan Couture recently but even his career high is 65 points. 9 times of of 10 that long shot pick will be Nikita Filatov.

@Cosmos1973 @Murph2417 @CanuckUKinToronto @Armchair GM  But one of the best in the game easily.

@wendelsfist @Tim Horton @The_Polish_Cannon  Chicago went from 13th place in the conference  to 10th to 4th to 2nd and won the cup... So in 2 years they went from complete bottom feeder to playoff team and in 3 years to cup winner... I know they are a specially case (along with PItsburgh) but it can be done. 


Look at Tampa bay and Colorado right now as well.

@The_Polish_Cannon  JVR is only 2 years younger than Kessel...  If Kessel is old then I am old, because we are the same age... And I don't want to hear that right now!

@Mind Bomb @Murph2417  Agreed I think Edmonton will try and get Ekblad, if they can't they may trade down I think they would want a talented D in Fleury over another project wingers.

@Greg Fenton @dlb meh  You really like to disagree with people eh? 8 months time to a 17 year old is a huge difference, can't really be argued... I grew about 3 inches and gained 30 pounds from 17 to 18. Though my hockey skill didn't change from that I became a much better player when I filled out.

@MaxwellHowe @Tim Horton  Lupul was an all star last year and Van was last in goals for this year ... Seems pretty even talent wise IMO. I do agree that Van is probably trying to shed salary and get younger though.

Is trading Lupul for Edler straight up an option? Salary is even enough, and both could use a change of scenery. He'd make a good #2 IMO.

@Belfour20/JB-45 @Tim Horton  Ideally Id like a # 2 D but Orpik is not like he once was. I wouldn't settle for the next best thing. Either go out and spend on a #2 or promote Gardiner and bring up Grandberg/Percy. Potentially Dan Boyle as a UFA? I am not sure I heard he lost a step or two.

@Belfour20/JB-45  Pass, other than Niskanen who will get signed  if not he will cost like a Clarkson and a half. Ill Take Elliot though.

Reading on Trotz this article http://blogs.edmontonjournal.com/2014/04/09/edmonton-oilers-todd-nelson-modeled-his-coaching-style-on-barry-trotz/ seems to suggest he is more likely to give the AHL boys some chances so thats a plus.


"One of the interesting things about Trotz is that when he moved to Nashville he gave opportunities to a number of minor-league players who had spent time with him in Portland."

@Bruffins  I think there is a such a big diffrence between an AHL player and an NHLer that people don't realize. Even some of the best of AHL players get called up to the NHL and do nothing time and time again. Keith Aucoin, Ashton (so far) Even JML when sent down this year was almost a point per game D. They do well in some roll spots but not many career AHL stars are big point producers in the NHL.
