Of those 11 players, 9 are forwards, with 5 centers, 3 LWs, and 1 RW:

LW: Puempel, Filatov, McCormick
RW: Noeson

And 2 D: Claesson, Fransoo

I realize that they're happy with Lehner in the wings and Anderson on the big club, but I wish they'd addressed the organizational need in nets. I'm surprised that they didn't at least draft one goaltender.

unless you think a guy has franchise potential, what's the point in drafting him? You can sign back-up goalies any day of the week...

More to the point, the one goalie this regime has drafted has is a 19 year old Calder Cup MVP. These guys know what they're doing.

They'll likely sign two or three undrafted goalies. It's not a bad way to go IMO, guy like Conz didn't go today - which is slightly surprising.

I like what Toronto has done with their goalie situation. The undrafted route isn't a bad one...

Yeah, me too. I thought we'd get Fasth this year. We're still in the running next season IMO.

Fair enough. I just think that, while we seem to have a home run in Lehner, we're not very deep in nets. I think they need to address the organizational depth at the position.

There's no question that that's the case (that we're weak depth wise in the crease) but it's not like a lot of teams have multiple starters flowing out of their pipeline. It's a hard position to fill and we have two great players already in the organization. There's no need to dilute the talent line just to have more bodies back there.

When they get a chance, they'll fill it as best as the players available allow them to.

cash wrote:Neil replacement? (5 years from now type of thing)

I would say Stone is Neil replacment.

Neil put up some good numbers but Stone was dominant this year. I would say stone is a more legitimate offensive threat than Neil has ever been. Stone was a year younger than Neil when Neil had his best offensive season in the OHL.
Stone also has almost 0 pims next to Neil's totals. Outside of a unique (and arguably poor) skating stride and the round they were drafted in, there is very little comparison between the two that can reasonably be made.

You could make a very good argument that Stone would have been a 2nd round pick had he stayed healthy. I wasn't around for the draft back then, but I highly doubt anyone considered Neil as a reasonable 2nd round pick before or at any point after his draft year.

I agree with all of that but the point I was making, if you people are realistic in their expecations Stone has a chance to be a 3rd/4th line guy that drops the flippers.

I see more Nick Foligno in him, but agree with the point you're making.

Foligno is a pretty good comparable, but again, Stone put up much better numbers sooner and in a tougher league. People should be really excited to see what he does this year. If he can stay healthy, he could very well lead the league in scoring. If he works on his skating and keeps developing, there's nothing stopping him from being a point producer in the NHL.

Doubt it. At 175, he'll need to gain some serious weight to be in Neil's range.

More of a Sean Avery type player, then?

I don't really know personally. Just looking at his size I figured someone less than Neil's weightclass.

Haha, I was trying to watch the taped draft today, and I got to the pick in the 2nd I think, where San Jose acquired a pick via trade and their staffer started to announce their pick and was interrupted by the officiating dude and he said something like "oh what the Diddle" or something with "Diddle" in it... the commentator was like "whoaaaaaaaaa". It was pretty humorous.

Haha, yeah the NHL old man stopped him until the trade became official and the guy went "Oh Diddle off, what a joke". It was quite amusing.
