  • NHL Draft 2017

    Too soon for a draft thread?

    Ahhhh, probably not.

    Some current draft rankings: http://www.mynhldraft.com/2017-draft...draft-rankings

    Here's somebody who looks interesting and could be available when we pick: Eeli Tolvanen. A skilled Finnish kid who's playing in the USHL.

    Bob McKenzie "The Finnish winger is a pure sniper -- with an NHL shot and NHL release -- who has the tools to be the best pure scorer in this draft. Tolvanen is starting his second season with Sioux City of the USHL and has committed to Boston College for next season. At a shade under six feet, he isn't big but he is strong enough to get to where he needs to in order to score goals.

    Craig Button "He has high-end offensive ability. He can score in multiple ways - off the one-timer, off the deke, off the rush and in the heavy areas around the net. He projects as an elite scoring winger."

    What would Fred do?

    exactly why we won't draft him if he's there when we pick
    "When over a quarter of young adults are too fat to fight, we need to take notice," Barnett said. He noted that national security in the year 2030 is "absolutely dependent" on reversing child obesity rates

        We need a sniper in the worst way.The value of a good sniper is that you're almost always in a game, because they can change the tone with a single shot. It would be nice if we could add size too.

            Well said fellas. We need a sniper or two and size. Enough of this small and not fast enough crap. San Jose and Anaheim have been continuing our type of game without us.
            Hexy needs to move to the next level in this draft.

              Amen, brothers.

              Maroon had two goals last night, got into it with Chara, fought McQuaid and was the first star as the "big bad Oilers" handled the Bruins.

              I feel like the hockey world has turned upside down.

              What would Fred do?

                It's pretty sad watching our guys attempt to throw a check, and all they do is bounce off of the opponent.

                  Listed as a LW to boot. Although a lot of his highlights he appears to be on the right side. Watching his highlights are like watching Laine highlights.
