2017 NHL Entrt Draft Rounds 2-7 Open Thread

Yesterday sure was exciting. First the Derek Stepan/Antti Raanta trade, then the rumors of trying to move up to #3, then two first round picks.

Today should be quieter. The Rangers don’t have a pick until the fourth round, with 4 picks total (rounds 4-7). Discuss and follow here.

  • Philly gave up 3 picks to move up 11 spots in the second round. That’s a hefty price.
  • Interesting trade, as VGK gets Keegan Kolesar, who is huge but has underwhelming numbers in the WHL, for a 2nd round pick. Kolesar was a 3rd rounder two years ago.
  • I am not expecting the Rangers to move up into the 3rd round. They didn’t make a deal in the 2nd either.
  • Travis Hamonic is heading to Calgary. The return for the Isles is a 1st rounder and a pair of 2nd rounders. Plus $4 million in cap space for a guy who is declining. Good trade by Snow.
  • Arizona gets 2 picks to move back 4 spots. Chayka might be young, but he’s got this GMing thing down pat.
  • The Rangers have traded pick 102 (4th) to San Jose for picks 123 (4th) and 174 (6th).
  • Rangers take defenseman Brandon Crawley at #123.
  • Rangers take Calle Sjalin at #145.
  • Rangers take Dominik Lakatos at #157.
  • Rangers take Morgan Barron at #174.
  • With their last pick, the Rangers take forward Patrik Virta.

That’s it folks. Interesting draft for the Rangers. Lots of over agers and Euros.

  1. And akin to Chayka, McPhee assembled three first round picks yesterday, and (as of today) has three number ones next year.
