Any idea why McShane dropped so much? Mid season he was an early 2nd rounder. 

 

Also, yet another playmaker...

I think that's due to his skating, which is rated as either average or below average.  Poor acceleration, especially for a smaller forward.  Mind you that's something he can work hard on to improve somewhat.  I think he has a fairly high ceiling due to his other skills being so good.

Our Biggest, Most Comprehensive Draft Review Ever   http://lastwordonhockey.com/2018/06/24/2018-nhl-draft-grades/

As promised, here is my grade/overall evaluation of the draft.  This wound up being a whole lot longer than I originally anticipated... http://www.habsworld.net/2018/06/grading-the-2018-draft-class/

Good job for LWOS getting a plug from Sportsnet.   Can't wait to see the next garbage pick from Ottawa.

102 to SJ for 123/139.

 

Interesting.... in the later rounds, might be best to take as many shots as possible rather than loading up on 1 or 2 bullets.

Mediocre skater, good playmaker.

It's going to be a bit of a run coming up - 122, 123, 128, 133, 139 are all Montreal picks.  I'm going to be updating the Day 2 article on the main site for a while yet...

This Romanov narrative..... did he truly drop out of concern for his allegiance to the KHL or did he drop because that's where he should be talent wise?

Turned into our late 2nd rounder for 2 3rd rounders.

Once JT and Skinnier go then you will see teams go hard after Pacioretty
