  1. Oh sorry....I wasn't upset. I'm happy to eat my words on this. I forgot this about Forsberg (always mix him up with Sundin). Ok then Datsyuk and Forsberg. Maybe I should have stuck to the AHL.
  2. Oh yeah, lol, Datsyuk...good for breaking all the norms. I figured there'd be one....that's why I said two.
  3. I thought we were hoping for Sakic or Forsberg. You give me Schwartz. There probably are some, so just name two you want EP to aspire to be as good as. I haven't researched it, so shove it down my throat. If he's going to be great, he'll be on the team next year.
  4. Sweden this year ...Utica next year....close enough....two years anywhere after being drafted.
  5. I wonder if the scenario you describe has ever happened in history. Who are the best two drafted forwards that needed two years in the minors
  6. No sarcasm. Can you name a couple forwards who spent two years in the minors after their draft year and are as good as you hope EP turns out? Maybe there are some. Who do you suggest.
  7. If he's not on the team next year, he's not the player we're hoping for.
  8. The day OJ got picked was the day I surrendered. Edit Meh...Boeser has 3 goals....hope springs eternal
  9. lol....I accidentally quoted you....I wasn't trying to send a message...haha

      I am screwing up royally here


  10. You're right, but it sort of proves my point that clubs don't make this kind of pick in the Top 5. Is being scrawny a good thing. It seems like this was the dominant logic behind picking him where we did. Forget about those studs, lets pick a twig. Imagine what he will be like when he grows up! lol. We need to hire a genealogist to the scouting staff I guess.
  11. I like Wheeler. Maybe it was his choice to finish college over going pro? Wow...I didn't know he was so old.
  12. Maybe I should have said....If a pick has to be projected for 4 years down the road, it should be with a 5th rounder, not #5 overall. Keith was a fair gamble in the second round. Seabrook finished his junior and played a year in the AHL, quite a normal hope for #14. I wonder if there is a successful top 5 pick that didn't make the NHL until year 4. No one comes to mind...maybe I will investigate.
  13. 18-19 in Utica means 19-20 with Canucks...that's year 4. But I guess that would be OK.
  14. If a pick is being projected 4 years down the should be with a 6th rounder. I wonder how often this 4 year incubation of a defenseman works out.
