  1. I fully agree. Gadjovich, of all our picks interests me the most. He has all you have mentioned which is a lot going for a late second rounder, and best of all, he has the compete and drive that enabled players like Burrows to reach their full potential. What I like most about Gadjovich is that, we need a player like him to complement our team. Could see him be a difference maker in the games that matter most (like the playoffs). He could definitely improve on his skating. I think this is the main reason he dropped. But like I said, I am confident he will work hard and diligently on his skating and anything else he has to. He will do whatever it takes.
  2. This must be the reason he wasn't qualified. He looked good when called up and I thought he had a chance. Good for him that he gets to continue playing pro hockey alongside his brother.
  3. At the very least penalized into submission.
  4. I wouldn't be happy if Gaudette ends up only playing a total of 200 NHL games. I would say something would have to go wrong for this to happen. I see some Burrows in him. His skill set and most importantly his Burrows like compete level and tenacity should enable him to have a long NHL career (crossing fingers).
  5. I like this signing. An NHL player that wants to play for his home town team is a win.
  6. Jonah "manchild" Gadjovich looks small compared to Gunnarsson and Brassard.
  7. Yeah, Olli's size now is a little bigger than Tanev's when he broke into the Canuck's lineup. If Olli is ready, and he is sheltered by Green, then maybe ...
  8. Elite Prospects has Olli at 6'3" and 187lbs.
  9. Oilers got Kassian after he hit bottom, If this isn't the bottom for Nail then I would hate to see his bottom.
  10. I hope Ratelle gets a contract. Plays and fights like a little pit bull.

  12. Yeah. Imagine Petterson going to the AHL and ending up with injury problems similar to Rodin.
  13. It could turn out just like you say. Pettersson could become the better player between him, Glass, and Valardi. Just like Filip forsberg went #11 in 2012 and Erik Karlsson #15 in 2008. Arguably the top player in their respective drafts yet went outside of the top 10. I really like his offensive upside and compete, I just don't like his body. I would still pick Glass over him. Glass is a better fit for our team. We need size playing in the west and for the playoffs when anything goes. Plus Glass is a play maker and will turn out to be a good NHL'er. In other words, Benning will probably draft Pettersson and a lot of people, including myself, will have varying degrees of post traumatic stress disorder, at least temporarily anyway.
  14. ^ Haha. Exactly. I expect Benning to come out of this draft with at least 3 NHL'ers with the draft picks he currently holds.
  15. I agree. He of course thinks like a pro and acts accordingly like you say which bodes very well for his future NHL career. This draft is going to produce some good NHL'ers. There was a poster earlier that compared this draft to the 2012 draft because of no generational or maybe even no franchise player. I think it was a good comparison. But even the 2012 draft produced more than a dozen good NHL'ers in the first round like at #3 Alex Galchenyuk, #5 Morgan Rielly, #6 Hampus Lindholm, #7 Mathew Dumba, #9 Jacob Trouba, #11 Filip Forsberg, #15 Cody Ceci, #16 Tom Wilson, #17 Tomas Hertl, #18 Teuvo Teravainen, # 19 Andrei Vasilevskiy, #22 Olli Maatta, and #30 Tanner Pearson. Then there are the second rounders like; Jake McCabe, Colton Sissons, Chris Tierney, and Damon Severson. Third rounders; Joonas Korpisalo, Shayne Gostisbehere, Matt Murray, Colton Parayko, and Frederik Andersen. Fourth round; Josh Anderson, Cedric Paquette, and Andreas Athanasiou. Fifth round and beyond; Connor Hellebuyck, Ben Hutton, Colin Miller, Connor Brown, and Matthew Benning. Like a lot of you know, this draft is not "sexy" but it is deep. Deep into the second round deep plus the steals in later rounds. Glass and his fellow top five represents the ceiling. Hard to imagine Benning not coming up with a very good NHL'er at #5.
