But really only have Andrew Copp besides Helebucyk for picks outside the first. Guys like Roslovic & especially Connor, Trouba & Scheifele were great value at their pick. Add not just skill, but speed, and some size to render them hard to play against. They have not drafted that great outside that? Gustafsson & Dylan Samberg are guys I like from more recent years. And there is noise about Sami Niku. But he was also supposed to make their roster this year. They really needed a D like him. On an ELC. And he was not ready? (I think he's up with the main club now? @Monty ?) First, don’t forget about Adam Lowry, he was in the 3rd round as well. Then their college signing in Tanev. They also drafted Tucker Poolman, who is definitely ready, but they are going to wait until Myers gets injured again; or, at latest, hand him his walking papers at the end of the season. As for Niku, he’s ready offensively, but he’s had some gaffs defensively. He’s called up now, because Kulikov won’t ever be healthy. Eric Comrie is A LOT better than his AHL numbers show. He had an atrocious team in front of him last year. His positioning and rebound control are sensational. The general feeling in Winnipeg about him is that we feel sorry that Hellebuyck turned out, because that’s his hurdle to be a starter for the Jets. He’s either dangled as trade bait this year (unlikely) or is their backup to Hellebuyck next year and used as trade bait before expansion. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
