Alright, let's get this show on the road. Sabres79 PMed me his picks, he has Patrik Laine and then Vladimir Tarasenko. 

 

TrueBlueGED, North Buffalo, WildCard, then Thorny. 

 

Since IrwinNelson hasn't been active for a while and hasn't seen any of the rules we made, if he hasn't checked in by the time he's up for the next round we'll take him out of that one automatically.

Can we just pause for a minute and recognize that in 2 consecutive drafts the NHL got McDavid, Eichel, Laine, and Matthews added to its ranks?

I know it's probably been answered already, but can someone remind me if we're doing this

 

A) One year of the player right now

 

B) Some length of time other than just one season

You guys have the idea right. It's as if you're picking these players to play 82 games for your team next year. Out of the remaining pool of NHL talent, pick the guy that you think will be the best player for the next 82 hockey games. 
So far it's me, Eleven, WC, ubkev, Taro, Thorny, NS, GA, and maybe North Buffalo. 
We should probably put a cap on number of participants, no? How about at 15, just so everyone gets to make a decent number of picks before it becomes too muddled to bother?

No. Now go ahead and make a bad pick so I can ridicule you appropriately :nana:

I mean I went with Seguin #1 overall last year :lol:

 

Thanks NB, good catch. I really don't want to make this pick, but he's too good to pass up on, and I'm hoping my other pick will still be there by some miracle.

 

So, I pick Drew Doughty.

I mean he did tell a ginger to 'flame on' if that's any consolation

What did they say? Maybe right now he is, but their trajectory isn't comparable thus far. Jack is the more valuable talent.

Gonna make my pick right away. SS seemed to be down for a bit, there.

Sorry, for whatever reason I haven't been able to access the forum with any regularity. I've been getting either 501 errors or timing out about 8/10 tries on getting on. Not sure if anyone else has been having issue, but it's been pretty sporadic the past week

This is really hard choice. I'm having a hard time with the fact that we haven't drafted a goalie. Holtby and Bob should really be in this area or higher. But this is a BPA draft and this guy is ranked higher then Holtby and Bob.

G-d I hate this guy, but ............ with the 22nd pick, the GASabresFAN selects Boston LW and agitator Brad Marchand. With back to back 35+ goal seasons, who has finally developed his passing game in the more dynamic Boston offense, we should see another strong season from this jerk.

There are about 5 goalies that are all the same, or slightly different, than one another for me. Rather build a strong possession team and back end and let a mediocre goalie handle meh shots.

In short, Montreal and the Rangers never succeed, but Nashville, Chicago, Pitt, LA...they all did with meh goalies
