With the new HC hire, the mindset is supposed to switch from changing core players to enhancing current players abilities. Talent is there, can this guy get them to bring it consistently.

Keep 7OA and watch Nelson become a Norris candidate.

Nelson is quite possibly the biggest p*ssy in the entire national hockey league.

Time to put his Jersey away, maybe Tyler Myers can help you hide it somewhere up high?

I'd have to agree here... he played 2nd line in WPG behind Buff/Morrissey.

He's a guy that wants to be paid 6.5-7.5M as a top pairing guy won't be that shut down guy you hope. He's not worth 7OA.

I def want him in a trade to put on the 2nd line but not for 7OA
.

Bad analysis. He's worth 7OA even if he's just a very reliable 2d pair.

This may not be true, and there are plenty of others who have had that issue. I know you like nostalgia.

Some recent 7th overall picks:

Andersson
Provorov
Keller
Dumba
H. Fleury
Nurse

I'd trade the pick for Trouba all day

- jcragcrumple

Why? Trouba isn't even good. Literally every player there is better than him.

Okay but before Nurse it was a run of Kadri, Skinner and Scheifele.
- BINGO!

Trouba>Provorov, AINEC. He's supremely overrated


Edit: he's better than nurse as well

Nurse and Fleury are not better than him imo. I haven't watched enough of Provorov to form an opinion on that

Agree to disagree. And all 3 are overrated. Trouba is a RHD so he gets overrated the most.

Trouba had the same WAR60 this season as the legendary Zadorov.

Trouba is an ideal partner for Dahlin imo. I think their games would mesh really well. I assume your Fleury comment was a joke

- jcragcrumple

You mean Dahlin is an ideal partner for Trouba so Trouba has someone to do the work to make him look good.

Wasn't joking about Fleury at all.

I don't think it's a joke. This year, he was better than any of the guys mentioned. Keller took a Myers sized step back.

Looks like a loss and another pending loss.

He's played 80+ games in the NHL and hasn't scored a goal yet. That's a contrarian's contrarian opinion

checks off a lot of boxes from what i've read. I think he'd make a good assistant but my knowledge about him is limited as well.
