  1. I think the reason Edmonton didn't have a jersey ready is because they are a mess and couldn't pull their heads out of their butts. My understanding was that Bouchard dropped a bit due to concerns about his lateral skating, he is a good enough skater is straight lines but was able to be beat by skilled shifty players that force him to try to move east and west. I personally would have been extremely upset if we took Bouchard over Hughes last year. Going into this draft I'm really hoping we come away with Zegras or Boldy, either one of these guys would fit in perfectly in our top 6. With some much uncertainty in the top ten I hadn't put much thought into us getting a Dach or Cozens but it could very well play out that way as well. going to be a really long wait for this event next week!
  2. I'm late replying to this one so sorry if someone already pointed this out. But that Torey Krug guy just had a great playoffs and he is right around the same size as Q. Hughes.
  3. I think if a team has a lot of confidence in their ability to develop raw prospects then I think they would take him quite high, hoping that Detroit grabs him for that reason.
  4. He was drafted in the first round of the QMJHL draft. He committed to Boston College at a young age
  5. In a draft with this much parity you could be sitting a 10 with 4 players left on the board you really like. If you trade down 4 spots you are still guaranteed to get one of your guys and add an additional asset as well.
  6. I take Cozens, but I'm from northern Canada so i might be biased. Regardless the kid is supposed to be one of the safest picks in the draft, if we drafted him I would be more than happy to move Virtanen in a trade
  7. I will jump out of my seat if the Oilers take Broberg at 8. Best case scenario, Wings take Podkolzin, Oil take Broberg and we have the choice between Zegras and Boldy.
  8. Turcotte ranked #10 too. Craig was dropping some hot takes on this ranking list
  9. Zegras is considered very feisty for his size. If you look at his stat line you'll see he had 94 pims last year. 25 of which came from a really greasy play where he stuck his knee out on someone (not a huge fan of that)... All in all, I think I would prefer Boldy due to his size and his ability to strip people of the puck but Zegras is way up there for me as well.
  10. I think Broberg and Podkolzin are two of the biggest boom or bust examples. Potential for greatness but also a big chance that they don't reach their full potential. Soderstrom has a lower ceiling than Broberg but I think a much higher floor.
  11. Boldy, Krebs or Zegras for me. I think one of those three guys will be there for us and i would love to see any of them in our top 6. Boldy has great hockey IQ and I think he and Petey would be thinking two steps ahead of the competition on the ice. Excellent playmaker with an awesome shot to go along with it. Krebs has a non stop motor with quick feet and is a top notch passer as well. I feel like I would prefer to see him play with Bo but i think hes the kind of guy you plug into your line up and he gives you 100% every shift. Zegras might be a bit more one dimensional than Boldy but hes quicker and possibly more skilled. Would also be fun to see this guy on our top line.
  12. Loved this, it was like 2 months ago he said the Podkolzin is closer to Kaako than Kaako is to Hughes in the rankings. That aged poorly in a hurry.
  13. I think this is mostly just a difference of opinion about what elite in considered to be, in my mind an elite prospect is a top line player or #1 d man. Again I'm still optimistic for Juolevi moving forward in the Canucks rebuild, he will be a big part of it but I don't consider him a centerpiece.
  14. Didn't think anyone still considered him an elite prospect. Although, I'm still optimistic that he will make the NHL and play in a top 4 role, I just don't think he will live up to the draft position.
