  1. He went back to junior after his draft year but I couldn't agree more with everything else.
  2. He is just as much to blame about his development than the organization is, showing up out of shape and partying too much wasn't the organizations fault. He was the goat for the Canadian world junior team and that was on his inability to play disciplined, not the organization. I hope he gets it figured out but he still needs to find another 2 or 3 gears offensively to be worth the pick. If he is a bottom 6 physical grinder than we didn't completely blow the pick but he would end up being a massive reach. I don't like how the onus is completely put on the way he was used in NHL, he was 18 not 8. He should have came to camp in the best shape of his life physically and mentally after being drafted and that wasn't the case so it's on him IMO.
  3. Damn near everyone on this board talks like they should head a scouting department for a major franchise. I know everyone has their opinion on who we should take but when there is no obvious choice where we are picking then to get outraged over JB passing on someone is ridiculous. Have I loved all of his picks? Absolutely not but I'm not gonna lose my mind on draft day, that comes with hindsight. Mittlestadt, Villardi and Glass top my list but if we go for Makar or another player viewed as more of a boom or bust type I won't be rioting in the streets or killing JB on this board.
  4. I think that's where Petterson goes too. I'm not so sure I think Tippett is better than the available centres or D men that will be there when we pick but really who knows. We'll find out in a few years haha.
  5. We would have more people looking at Tippett if we weren't so desperate for another center, we ideally need that number 1 center we can pair with Horvat for our major building blocks.
  6. I'm anything but an optimistic fan so I assumed we'd be drafting 5th and I'm absolutely fine with it, we'll get a prospect everyone should be happy with even if it's not the guy you covet. Mittlestadt or Glass definitely top my list but Heiskanen, Makar, Necas or Petterson are all guys to be excited about.
  7. Opinions change as the facts change. It would be ridiculous if his updated mocks weren't changing.
  8. Our own Dylan Larkin clone
  9. I assume he'll sign after the season as well. I could definitely be wrong about 3 years
  10. Horvat and Juolevi played junior and Boeser is in college, you can't be under contract while playing college but you can in junior. That's why those guys signed before him. He has until the end of next season before he can be a free agent so there's no need to worry quite yet.
  11. Big ups to the investigative work, I'm so glad I didn't have to go find all those quotes haha. I'm a he not a she but aside from that, bang on!
  12. I did find your name, I used the information you provided to prove you lied. I googled the round and year and found out that player never played for LSU like you claimed and his career ended not off of injury but inability, unlike you said.
  13. Once he gets called out he avoids that thread afterwards haha. +1 for the Larry David picture.
  14. And aren't you the guy that said they played professional sports? Went and said you were drafted in the 5th round of 1998, said you blew your arm out at LSU and then I used google to debunk you? You have to lie just to try and make your points seem valid, which still doesn't work, don't try so hard, you try hard.
