    I like the Filatov deal for Ottawa. Worth the gamble.

    Still confused why the Rangers did not draft a LW….

    • Dave says:

      They drafted the best available that fit the skill set they need.

    • Brian SCS says:

      Go for centers, most players are Left-handed and the switch to the left wing is usually not a difficult transition. Centers tend to be more well-rounded in the defensive aspects of the game due to increased responsibility. It’s just one example, but take Dubinsky for instance.

    You know how I said I didn’t want to give up grachev and valentnko for a first rounder? I changed my mind.

    This draft may take a few years to see how good it is, or isn’t. I like that they are drafting speedy kids, with brains, and good hockey sense as well. I like the first , second, and fifth picks, all with good size!!!!!
