Buffalo is out of the Talbot sweepstakes as they traded the 21st overall pick to the Sens for Lehner and Legwand.
That Hanzal's so hurt right now.

Top five go as expected McDavid, Eichel, Strome, Maurer and Hanafin. Now is where someone might fall.

Devils take Pavel Zacha at #6

For Werenski to fall, need some wingers taken.

Zacha is a guy the Stars would have taken had he dropped.

If Matt Barzal gets past Florida, the Stars will have their pick of him or Kyle Connor or the Russian Guryanov Barzal had a injury which is why he has slipped.

Guryanov.

You could hear Sportsnet go into a moment of silence, after which they commented on "the first surprise pick of the draft".

Not that it means anything because Craig Button is a clown, but he had Guryanov rated quite highly and thinks that he's going to be one of the top 5 players from this draft. He compared him to Pronger in terms of physicality. Even though he's a winger.

Posted about him last night. Here's the stuff again.

Jason wrote:Link
“It doesn’t change, no matter where you pick,” Nill said. “You’re goal is to get the best player. The ultimate goal is to hopefully draft two or three players, [that] three, four or five years down the road, eventually play for your team.”

“You always want to draft a goalie in the draft, but like every other position, we’re going to see who that player is we want to pick, doesn’t matter if it’s first round or second round or all rounds after that,” Nill said.



Mock Draft Recap


4. The NHL rediscovers Russia:Right wing Denis Gurianov of the Russian team Lada Togliatti could be drafted closer to No. 10 than No. 20.
But the Russian economy has hurt the value of the ruble, leaving the KHL's contracts less valuable. We could see veteran Russian players looking to come to the NHL, and the younger players are less inclined to stay in Russia.

That's why Gurianov, a 6-2 forward, might inch up closer to the top 10. He's a dynamic scoring threat.



Dennis Gurianov
“An absolute horse – he’s big and fast with a long, powerful stride that eats up ground. Has without question the best and hardest shot in the draft - an absolute rocket that he can pinpoint with accuracy from anywhere. A true gamebreaker and natural sniper who is deadly from the circles on down.” – Red Line Report 2015 Draft Guide

Barzel says the Devils, Flyers and Avs are the most interested in teams.

Flyers could trade up for Provorov

Well since we missed on Val Nichuskin, I figure why not try drafting him a second time.

Glad we passed on Glennie. I mean Barzal.

He's been a Star for about five minutes, and he's already trolling scuba.

I could tell that just by reading the scouting report you posted.

Except for the good shot part. Val does not have that.

Who Again is a great player.

Well, after watching Boston whiff on Barzal three straight times, I don't feel so bad.

Agreed. This is almost as bad as passing on Cam Fowler...

I was sold on Gurianov last night, any of the three options sounded great of Barzal, Gurianov or Connor.
If the scouting reports are accurate and he's a top five talent you can get at this point, it's a great pick.

In all seriousness, I think Nill went for the home run pick. He comes with more potential risk, but his top potential is 1st line power forward. Barzal is a safer bet, but more like a potential #2 center.

For years I was listening to you guys complain that we were picking safe, so take it for what it is. This is the home run swing.
