I just noticed that Higgins is a Yale grad as well. Wonder if Higgins is one of the guys the Yale coaches use as and example of success.

I'd have taken Dane Fox... don't know why no one did. The kid's quality.

I also wish we had a 3rd round pick so we could've taken Athanasiou. One of the fastest, fittest skaters in the draft and has sick hands? Steal of a 4th rounder.

maybe it's against weaker competition but he looked like an aggressive Ilya Kovalchuk (in terms of physical build and determination to drive the net)

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.


Jesus LOVES YOU!
2012, meet Matthew 24:36-47!

14 I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.

One analyst called him the "forward version of Mcnally for the Canucks." He has the upside, and potential to be something special. He is still a long ways away, and I think the first year in university will be a strong wake-up call for him.

Fox sisnt get drafted probably because of his off ice entics. Eell at least NYR invited him to camp.

That's only 3 points per game.

I feel like Gillis is just drafting a bunch of big guys and hoping one works. :P

Not necessarily a bad thing.

I'm surprised MG is the only one who's noticed the trend of big forwards having success in the playoffs.

Just look at the Devils' top-6, the Kings and the Bruins. This is how you win in todays NHL, I just hope the league doesn't change by the time guys like Beattie are ready to make the step up to the big league or we'll look like idiots with all these big forwards

Hard to tell if he's dominating due to his size or the fact he's older than the competition. It'll be interesting to see how he does this fall.

Canucks can afford to keep making a safe pick with first round and swinging for the fences in other rounds, bc our team is contending right now. Not sure how long this strategy can last though. Jensen and Rodin hopefully make the jump in a couple of years as they are the most skilled guys we have in the system..

First non Canadian, still a big guy at 6'3" can play centre or right wing and will be playing at Yale next year

Stats http://www.elitepros...p?player=177685

No Gradin pick :shock:


Finally Gradin picks are left on the side. No more team Svedenskaja.

I did some research on this guy..apparently Chris Kreider went to the same school.. and if you compared stats, Beattie blows aways Kreiders numbers by a mile. Whether that translates to the big leagues who knows , but MG and the scouts might have something here

he was drafted from the same league as McNally, and will be playing against him this year. he was only 1 year past his draft eligibility (seeing as he has a december 92 birthday) and could be the steal of the draft. The reason he was passed over in his first draft eligibility was because he was playing in the MJHL, a relatively unheard of league, and he is the first player from his team and only 4th player in league history that has been drafted into the nhl (the others are Nick Foligno, Chris Higgins, and Michael Komisarek)http://www.atlantich...ent=mjhl_alumni

How did you grad high school? 74 / 28 does not equal 3........it's less than that.

The key difference is that Sopel can fill in for Seabrook and Campbell just fine. Bieksa, he is garbage so in that sense he is like the worst defenseman in the league.


When Cody (Hodgson) gets older, he might be better than Datsyuk.


Let's not push this guy (Kassian). He's still immature, and if he fails on the 2nd line it's because he isn't ready. Some guys really need years to develop, it's how well and how fast players adapt to the game. In my opinion, I'd rather have Horvat getting 2nd line minutes. He will start off on the 3rd line next season but I see him making the transition, being a great compliment to whoever plays his wings.

At this point, I don't see Kassian fitting in to any role other than a 3rd. If players like Kassian start getting 2nd line minutes then we just stay inconsistent as a team.
