Re: Leafs' Draft Discussion Thread!

Hey, we actually have a full complement of draft picks. Hurry, fire Junior before he trades them for a washed up flash-in-the-pan!

I really don't know squat about most of these players (just stopped watching hockey almost entirely sometime around early December).

That was March actually it's changed a fair bit since then. I'll post the updated rankings a bit later. :)

The Draft Thread

This is where JFJ can do some good in my books. If Esposito is falling, we should really be doing everything in ouw powers to trade up and get him. As this is a weak draft and picking 13th probably won't be like last year where Tlusty fell into our hands.

Esposito definitely won't fall to us at 13. One, because that's probably too fall from him anyways, and two, because Montreal's right in front of us, and there's no way that they take a pass on a home-town Montreal boy with star potential. What does JFJ have to offer to trade up though?

Ahh, good point HL. Your thread was here first, and it's fancier looking, so we should probably lock this one up and move the discussion over there. The draft thread is probably something that should be stickied too.

I would also go for Hamill. This draft isn't a very good one, and sure Hamill may have flaws in his game, but he is exactly the kind of guy that ends up being a great pick near the end of the first round. Ton of offensive talent and potential, which is what the Leafs need. That is assuming one of those top 11 don't fall.

BPA of course, but a very skilled forward is what we need to add to the organization.

My thread was closed for this? This is bullshit! Just because there are pictures and better thoughts to open up with? Horseshit! lol

HAHA :D

Copy and paste your posts in Soco! It's actually really nice to have this up. I'm a huge draft nerd. I just want to start talking hockey and no more BS.

Re: Leafs' Draft Discussion Thread!

It's too late. My thread is a goner....

But...we need to move up to make an impact at this draft. There is a huge drop-off after the top 10 or so. Just like last year, where the drop off was after pick 13, which we luckily had.

So there was another draft thread!! I could have sworn I read one somewhere in here last night. What the hell happened to it? It could easily have been merged.

Re: Leafs' Draft Discussion Thread!

I dunno, Soco, I've watched the rankings for months now. They are ALL over the place. I just don't see the cut off.

In fact, look at this - I've kept the top 10 for just about every month...

ISS in November
1. Voracek
2. VanRiemsdyk
3. Couture
4. Alzner
5. Petrecki
6. Esposito
7. Gagner
8. Ellerby
9. Backlund
10. Gillies

McKeen's December
1. Esposito
2. Alzner
3. Voracek
4. Kane
5. Gagner
6. Ellerby
7. Korostin
8. Turris
9. Couture
10. vanRiemsdyk

ISS February
1. Cherepanov
2. Alzner
3. VanRiemsdyk
4. Kane
5. Couture
6. Turris
7. Gagner
8. Ellerby
9. Esposito

McKeen's February
1. Kane
2. Turris
3. Cherepanov
4. Alzner
5. Sutter
6. vanRiemsdyk
7. Ellerby
8. Voracek
9. Gagner
10. Couture

Compare those top 10 lists to now. There is a HUGE discrepancy not only from Month to Month but between different scouting services. I've never seen this much movement. I think all the players are so close. McKeen's thought enough to put Sutter as their #5 in February. Now he doesn't even make their top 20.
