At the end of the day I trust Timmins judgment here, but the truth is there is not much (right now) to differentiate between 2-7 in my prospect ranks.
After that there is some fall off.
Still the great thing about this is that we have 4 picks in the top 64, and 5 in the top 94 of this draft right now. So its more than just the big guys we are talking about.
I think that guys like Tim Bozon, Henrik Samuelsson, Boo Nieves, Dalton Thrower, and a few others are also interesting prospects we should look at with our 2nd rounders.
Totally agree with this post..
Any of the picks from 2-7,8,9, or 10 will be in the same boat in terms of whether they become impact players at the NHL level..Finding a stud in the later rounds will be the more important job...If we can add a Grigorenko or a Galchenyuk AND get a Thrower or a Samuelsson, our possibility of landing an NHL impact player expands..More like throwing crap at a wall and see what sticks..lol
