The value of First round Picks (Discussion)


A NEW BEGINNING

Recommended Posts

While reading the Hunter Shinkaruk post, I stumbled on to the AHL all-star list from another poster. And there in easy to read words and numbers, is the proof of what many of posters have been saying.............most (Not All) top end players are born in the first round of the NHL draft.

The AHL, the developmental grounds of most NHL players that do not go directly into the NHL, listed the players and the rounds which they were drafted in, there in living color was 10 of 16 defensemen drafted in the 1st round. This was to an overall extent, the same throughout the 4 rosters, in all positions.

The point of posting this is only to illustrate to CDCers the absolute truth for debate purposes, and whether trading vets for picks is a good idea. I have posted before, percentages of what areas of the draft most blue chippers come from, which is, the higher the pick the higher the percentage of success is, and the higher the talent ceiling the higher chance of developing to that ceiling.

I apologize for the way this is presented, I wish I was better at it, but in discussions about why we need the highest possible draft positions and trade returns, this may not be absolute proof, but I think this is truly relevant.

So you just find out that higher picks = higher end talent. NICE

 

GT of all posters, you are well aware of the constant argument between posters as to what and why trading vets while near their apex is a good thing

Even Edler does not escape this conclusion! I am just a little surprised of your response

Well we aren't trading our vets because we have no one to replace them, and the ones that are expandable aren't at the apex of their careers.

How are you going to replace Edlers 25 minutes a night? the answer is we can't, this is why he will not be traded.

This isn't what anybody wants to hear but is closer to reality than 90% of posts on CDC.

Wait!!!

 

How is it that nobody has noticed yet that it didn't list the rounds they were drafted in. It listed appearances in all star games... The 1st means it's their first all star game..

What a fail thread. 

Lol i didn't even bother to look at the list.

Sadly true. Edler would fetch a 1st but we would be without a top 4 defenceman for a few years, baring and ufa signings

Trade Edler for a first. And then sign a top 4 dman in the off-season, and draft a bunch of them in this year's draft class.

Trading Edler is a dumb idea unless it's too good a deal to pass up and you get Edler to waive.

Of course. LOL. you don't just trade one of your best players for nothing. The assumption behind trading Edler is that a good deal is too good to pass up. Make the trade then.

So trading a good player at his apex for a pick that may or may not become a good player seems smart?
