Boston took G Malcolm Subban, brother of Montreal D P.K Subban. Siblings on the other side of an intense rivalry.

Bruins take Malcolm Subban. Very, very disappointed. This is a guy some scouts think is a second/third round prospect based on his glove hand and his family name drags him to the first round. We have Rask, Khudobin, and Michael Hutchinson already. Rask is here for the long haul. Subban has no role here. I just don't get it. Hopefully Chiarelli truly thinks Subban's the BPA and other GMs agree so we can deal him down the line.

I woulda rather had Gaunce over Laughton as well, but I trust this front office in the draft and with free agents signing entry level deals (Hovinen, Read). Giroux, Richards, Carter, Couturier all drafted by this organization, yet only one was a top 10 pick. We know centers.

I really wanted Matta or Thrower though.

Jordan Schmaltz doesn't surprise me, Blues are known for going a bit off the board. Sounds like a pretty good Offensive Defenseman, and a really good skater.

Must Draft All the Big Players!!!!

Insert That Meme Here


Seems like the ideal Gillis pick now. Big physical player with good hockey sense.

No Collberg or Aberg. Rangers draft another D and another player from the US U-18 program. Brady Skjei. The value is solid, but I really would have preferred a forward. I can only hope this means we'll package some of our prospect depth in defense towards getting an impact forward. Skjei's strength is in being a great skater. Good at making the breakout pass and has decent, but not great offensive talent. According to scouting reports, does not project to be a physical player at all though. Welcome to the Rangers.

Matteau to the Devils is so ironic.

Couldn't even watch the draft due to power outage Brick wall

Disappointed that we didn't take Grigs. He's going to make a lot of xenophobic fans look stupid in due time.

Reinhart's alright, I guess...

Now let's get Martin Frk at #34

Loved this day for Pittsburgh. Still managed to get great return for Staal, Michalek is gone and it clears up cap space, and we get two more quality prospects on the blue line.

Zach Parise, welcome to the 'Burgh!

Yep, Pens fans are going to love Brandon Sutter, Dumoulin is going to be a stud too.

So everyone seems to love the Capitals 1st round picks. I know absolutely nothing about the NHL Draft. Can someone who actually knows these 2 tell me about:

Filip Forsberg

Thomas Wilson


I want to know as much as you got. Strengths and Weaknesses any and everything

Forsberg has no relation to Foppa first off, but he's a talented forward with a ton of skills offensively and loaded with upside. He needs to add weight, but he has garnered comparisons to Corey Perry. Good hands, good shot, has 2 way talent, and good skater. People had him as a top 3 talent.

Wilson is probably a 3rd line winger who can hit, fight, and play a good defensive game. He'll throw down and work in the dirty areas along the boards and in front of the net. He's a big guy, and theres a chance he can develop into a Milan Lucic type, but whether he can score that much is a question.

Rumor has it if he's there at 45, the Flyers will select Oscar Dansk. He was reportedly their top ranked goalie, has a North American game, and has very good athletic ability. They moved Bobrovsky, and while there is a lot to like about Hovinen, it wouldn't shock me if we traded Bryzgalov in a few years to a team needing to reach the cap floor when his salary drops, especially if Dansk is on the team and develops into the type of goaltender people expect him to be.

If he's not, expect a defenseman like Dalton Thrower, Matt Finn, and a couple of other defenseman are avalible.

I wonder if Homer thinks Laughton makes an immediate impact in Philadelphia as a 4th line center with Talbot and Wellwood like Couturier did last year.

He plays a good defensive game, and while he's a little light for his size, his play on defense could help him make the team like it did with Sean. It also allows us to put Scooter with some more talented offensive wingers on the 3rd line, potentially with his PK partner Matt Read. Right now if we don't make any major moves, and Laughton makes the roster, we can skate out

Hartnell-Giroux-Voracek(If Jagr isn't re-signed)
Schenn-Briere-Simmonds
van Riemsdyk-Couturier-Read
Wellwood-Laughton-Talbot

That's a pretty good forward corps, granted there's a possibility JvR is gone, but we have some good forwards.

Wanted Thrower Sad

Oh well, Stolartz has a ton of talent. He's going to the University of Nebraska, so it will probably a little easier to keep tabs on him. He's gotten comparisons to Pekke Rinne, Ben Bishop, and Mike Smith, so the talent is there.

Sucks Montreal got Thrower, they got 2 of my favorite players in the draft.
