No way, really? He was your pick? I've been sitting on him for a few rounds, and then I thought "take the 2nd line LWer before the third pairing d-man" but he was just too good to risk letting slide further. I've been trying to trade up since my last pick. Sorry.

EDIT: 25th d-man taken, I could make an easy case for top-20 and I think even higher than that. I feel I got terrific value down here, he might even slide up to the 2nd pair over Mantha.


Yea, I kept thinking he would keep falling and he did. He was honestly my next pick.

I had a weird feeling that he wasn't gonna make it past you, so I paid the price to move up. I'm glad I did (respectfully). Hey, you can take some minor solace in the fact that I didn't just drop a pen on a piece of paper and pick the guy next to the dot. This was calculated.

You pick before mikey, so you control your own destiny on that one my friend. I lost #70 in the deal.

I'm curious as to who this will be. I have like 2 or 3 left wingers in mind right now that I don't think would be bad picks right now at all, I wonder if it'll be one of those...

I might be looking to trade one of my next 2 picks for an earlier pick if anyone is interested.

Still up for trading away 78 or 79.

Also, meow, you have me down for 13 people and 5 D on the Google Doc. I only have 12 players and 4 D. Just an FYI.

We have a trade here once more. Degloving Kings get picks #78 and #79 from MRandall's Team in exchange for #76 and #81.

I'm proud to select, with the 70th pick in this years draft, Matt Cooke.

Image

Polarizing figure, as we are well aware of. He plays the game on the line - a very, very fuzzy line. Fast skater. Good PKer. Throws a mean elbow/blindside hit/check from behind.

Gaucho's pick of Emile Francis is rejected as he does not meet the requisite criteria of the draft.

Matt Cooke was one of those "two or three left wingers that wouldn't be a bad pick here"

I'm fairly certain that I'm going to pick two LWs with my next two picks. Now all I got to do is figure out which.

Whatever, I'm going to pick Greg Malone's winger.

Rod Schutt, LW

Image

A talented, speedy winger, Schutt was originally drafted 13th overall by the Habs. Unable to crack the Canadies' deep lineup, he eventually ended up in Pittsburgh, where he enjoyed some productive seasons, before chronic back pains effectively cut short a promising career. 278 GP, 77 G, 92 A, 8 + 6 in 22 playoff games.
