Same for me.

 

Although I could leave it on, easier to get to sleep!

The ones under 5'11" are in the picture but behind The Rock.

All right, no obvious choices at #16. Who will it be?

Sometimes we are smarter than pro scouts. And even smarter than your average labradoodle!

Guhle? Didn't see that coming.

#18 – New Jersey Devils – Kaiden Guhle, D, Prince Albert (WHL)

I think this might be a bit early considering some of the other options on the board but Guhle is the last defenceman in this tier and going a little early is justifiable for New Jersey when they pick two spots later as well.  He’s not someone with top-pairing upside but he’s a safe bet to help anchor a second pair.  Considering that the Devils don’t have a particularly strong back end, he’d be a strong complementary piece to add to their group.

Sportsnet says he is already over 200 pounds from his extended offseason workout ... the kid expects to play at 215

I didn't pay attention ... but I hope he's at least a RD rather than LD.

Habs seem to be big on size, suddenly?

 

Interesting pick. I’m a huge believer in the importance of quality D-men, so I won’t complain.

It's not a bad pick; it's a safe pick.  I thought they may have gambled on someone who has more upside.

Projection and Comparison

Guhle has the potential to be a top-pairing defenceman and play big minutes in the NHL. If he reaches his potential, he can be an elite shut down defender. His offensive game may not reach that level, but he can still move the puck and play on the second unit of a power play. Guhle should spend another year or two in the WHL. He can dominate defensively at the junior level and this will give him the opportunity to continue to grow offensively. Guhle should also be in the running to play for Canada at the World Juniors. His game is reminiscent of Colton Parayko, but this is a stylistic comparison only and not one based on skill or ability.

If Hendrix Lapierre drops past 25, I'd love to see the Habs trade up using their 2nds to go for that high-risk/high-reward player.
