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.

Habs brass = smarter than everyone else

 

They probably believe that...they are proving they need a total overhaul at the top.  Bergevin, Timmins, all of them.  Total gutting.

Wasting early 2 nd round pics on 3rd round players. 

My thoughts exactly! 

 

Benoit Olivier Groulx just got picked up by Anaheim!

4th rounders in Romanov's case...

Anaheim takes Groulx two picks before Montreal. Love it.

Why ?  Did you not want Montreal to draft him?

So a game where he got 2 assists and was the probably the best player on the ice?

 

I just didn't get that "wow, this guy is going to be a star in the NHL" feel from him, which I think is something you should feel watching a guy who goes that early in the first round.  I hope I'm wrong, but I feel pretty confident that when we look back on this thread in 3 or 4 years I won't be.

 

For the record, I'm not thrilled with the 2nd round picks either.  I don't trust the management of this team at all.

Fine with the Olofsson pick as well. First time I’ve felt that way this draft.

Jacob Olofsson - I like this pick.

 

Probably the first pick they've made that wasn't reaching...they've exhausted their "list" and now picking off the NHL.com list. </sarcasm>

Definitely a good pick. He will be a pro player but I'm not sure if his offensive game will go up a notch, or if he'll just remain a good defensive player. He's in a similar position to Jacob De La Rose, but I'm not saying he'll become the same player as JDLR.

Timrå will play in the SHL next season so I hope Olofsson will stay there and get time in SHL and not be loaned back to allsvenskan...

He have better numbers against grown ups than delarose ever had in Sweden.

Well that's a positive thing, cause De la Rose hasn't impressed anyone yet!
