Staal's first year in the league I was toying between buying a Staal jersey or a Malkin jersey. Glad I bought the Malkin jersey. It doesn't have the "A" though.

Last pick, good for Nick!

AIK:s Oskar Sundqvist på draften

I år är Oskar Sundqvist på plats i Consol Energy Center i Pittsburgh för årets draft.

Den storväxte Bodensonen Oskar Sundqvist gjorde en lysande säsong i Skellefteå AIK:s J18-lag, där han efter en blindtarmsoperation kom igång och imponerade stort i slutspelet.

– Han var egentligen hur bra som helst. Han fick möjligheten att visa upp sig för NHL-scouterna och är verkligen värd den här chansen, säger J18-tränaren Hans Wallson.

Oskar åkte igår över Atlanten för att infinna sig på kvällens draft.

St. Louis, Columbus, Detroit, Pittsburgh och Philadelphia har visat störst intresse för Sundqvist, men ytterligare fem NHL-klubbar ska ha hört av sig om Oskars tjänster.


Nice to see that St. Louis and Detroit were sniffing around Sundqvist as both have strong scouting of Western European players.

There were 24 goalies drafted in 2012. 2 of them were under 6'1".
There were 19 goalies drafted in 2011. 2 of them were under 6'1".

So many great goalies getting ignored in the draft because their not 6'5".

That's the nature of the business now.

NHL goalies Under 6-foot in the top 45 in wins: 3

Gotta be "this tall" to play...for better or for worse.

I heard trouble is already brewing in Montreal, after the Habs brass wouldn't let HCMT trade the 3rd overall pick for Michel Ouellet

Fun fact: You think we draft a lot of d-men? The Isles used all 7 of their picks on D this draft.

I think 4 or 5 of their prospects have jumped ship overseas recently as well...so they can re-stock. Kelly Chase said on NHL Network last night that they offered all of their draft picks to Columbus to move up from 4 to 2...but I don't believe that.
