Well you have two chances to have teams you like scoop him
- eichiefs9


True.

Zykov-McDavid-Puljujarvi
Nuge-Draisaitl-Chiasson



If the Islanders do claim him, where does he slot in? Hard to believe he’d push Lee, Beauvillier, Bailey or Eberle.

No being able to play both wings might push Scroontoggle either out of the lineup or down to the 4th line, benching Martin. Tossing him on Filppula's wing might add a little offensive punch to that line. Or not, who knows.

Actually Zykov and Filppula would probably be quite solid.

Get on it Lou!

Which is why they rarely go in the first round, let alone first overall.... right, Milbury?

I can't recall a goaltender since Carey Price selected in the first round that's turned out to be really good. Just going off the top of my head, so maybe I'm missing someone..but I can't think of any.

edit: Vasilievski and Varlamov. Duh. That's about it, as far as successful goaltenders drafted in the 1st round post-2005.

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette wrote about Travis Williams last month, saying he will run the biz operations while Lou Lamoriello runs hockey operations.

Luongo went first round. I think Milbury took him 4th overall.

Really? Works for me. Williams was the COO of the Penguins. Not really newsworthy as far as hockey goes, but adding accomplished executives to the staff never hurts.

That’s what I thought. Frankly I’d be pissed if my organization used a 1st on a goaltender anymore.

It's a total waste, unless the player is some sort of can't-miss generational prospect. And even then there's a ton of risk because no position requires as much talent between the ears as it does physical talent.
