This pick seemed like a little bit of a reach. Could be the next Filatov, but with less upside.

The isles got 3 guys who all were projected higher.........excellent draft thus far.

You can't call him Filatov unless he was drafted in the top-5

Strong 3rd round pick for the Isles. Skarek (goalie) killed the WJC's and is playing top-Czech league hockey at 19.

Yup, I'm very happy overall with the first two rounds. I was just thinking that they might have used that 2nd pick in the 2nd round in a trade for a goalie or a D-man.

The #Isles take my #1 ranked goalie Jakub Skarek 72nd overall! A steal with a bunch of other goaltenders going ahead of him. Unbelievable flexibility for a guy of his size. Very refined post integration for a goalie of his age. Excellent pick. #NHLDraft

Like Lou said, plenty of time to address the holes.

True. Let's see whether he opts for the NHL or the KHL.

That’s what she said. If Lou said it too, then the old (frank)er is keeping some rather unchaste company.

He's committed to play at UConn next year. The "Russian Factor" really doesn't exist anymore.

Yeah so far we have last year's team. Rather not watch that again.

Well, it could be interesting to watch the same team coached by Barry Trotz, playing a different system.

Edit: Of course, SOME players will undoubtedly be different. I doubt UFAs like Halak, Seidenberg and Hickey will be back.

Larry Brooks saying he is hearing (though not from Tavares camp/NYI) that Tavares will utilize the interview period with 5 teams. This should surprise absolutely nobody FYI.

Gives Lou a little more time to see if he can pull a goaltender out of his ass

Yeah but who takes their spots? Mayfield, Pelech? 37 year old Anderson maybe as a starter? I'm getting a little concerned at this point for a player in Tavares I'm getting the impression he waited to see what was done at the draft. Saw some nice kids picked but didn't see any immediate help and said to himself ok let's talk to other teams. That's the only reason I can see that he waited till today to decided on the weekend of his bachelor party.

Anyone who didn't think he was going to do that after waiting this long was lying to themselves. I don't think this changes anything.
