Draft Day Discussion

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.

I won't be totally surprised if that happens. Especially if Lapierre is not drafted in the 1st round.

I assume Commandant is in court for beating a man to death after the poor soul insisted clutch was a real thing.

5'11.5" looks ideal to me!

Agree with your grade.  Thought most of the picks were taken in the right range (not too many reaches if any), and they had a couple pretty good value picks (like Mysak and maybe Farrell).

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.

I read he can skate though..

I'd like to see that, but i doubt it'll happen!

Let's see if this prediction is better than our last one.

Columbus picked a guy at 21 that no one has even heard of. Seriously, every broadcast just kept the shot on Jarmo's face while they scrambled for something to cut to.

An there goes Lapierre to Washington. Didn't think they'd be the team to go with a risky pick, especially with their center positions locked up for the next 5 years.

That's never a wise idea... :)

 

Stats, scouting reports, highlights for Guhle - my usual 1st-round pick article: https://www.habsworld.net/2020/10/habs-select-kaiden-guhle-16th-overall/

:Looks good

I think I heard Kaiden's last name pronounced like "ghoul".  If correct, that is awesome.

Interesting. NBC guys seemed to know all about him. Agreed it was a huge reach, but they didn't seem to panic. Granted, they went to commercial after Pierre's initial comment, but didn't feel like an unexpected break.

He didn’t get drafted last year. Playing well this year but still this looks awfully high.

Perfetti finally at #10, I expected him to go earlier.

Wonder if Domi and our 16 could’ve landed that pick.

It might well have, but that trade does not improve the team next season like the Anderson trade should. I know that you, and many others here don’t care for the Domi trade version 2, but that doesn’t change two things: 1. It was a trade made with the intention of immediate improvement and 2. Despite his issues Anderson was coveted by many other teams around the league by all accounts.

I would have liked MB to use an asset to get the 21 or 22 pick and grab Lappierre. No matter what our GM does no one is going to be 100% happy with all his moves  unless, and until we win a Cup.

Exactly PMAC ... MB was not trading Domi or the #16 for a player that he might never get to see play for him as a Hab ... IMO he is essentially "playing for a contract" in 20/21 ... his current deal runs through 21/22 ... I don't want MB "playing out" the last year of his deal in 21/22 ... it risks short-sighted, panic moves to try to save his job.

Well;

likely early 2nd round picks; Peterka, Mysak, Wallinder, Gunler, Grans, Kleven, O'Rourke, Colangelo, Tuch.

 

Are any of these worth trading up to the 30s for, assume with no 3rd picks, it would have to be 47 or 48 and 57, overpay?

Any of these teams (other then Sens, who have four 2nds already) possibly open to trading down add a 2nd pick (one of California teams perhaps?)?

I wouldn't be opposed with trying to trade up and get Noel Gunler but Bergevin seems opposed to doing that.  When it comes to the 57th pick, I figure he's trading down from that one now.
