Methot - Karlsson
Cowen - Ceci
Wiercioch - Gryba

Phillips, Borowiecki

Other than Ceci on the 2nd pairing, that's not a bad back-end. We'd need a stop-gap of sorts, but Seth Jones isn't it.

What we *do* need from the draft is a center who can be groomed to replace Spezza on the top line. We have Spezza, Turris, Zibanejad, Da Costa, Smith, O'Brien for now, so we are talking a good 4-5 years down the road.

MacKinnon (if we win the lottery), Lindholm, Monahan?

Seth Jones would be able to play in the NHL today and would be better than every d-man on the team except Karlsson

I really like Monahan, and his stock has fallen...could be a great steal in the draft somewhere around the 10th pick if he continues to fall.

Monahan is def a kid that is getting over looked because of the team he is playing on right now. If the Sens don't quite get to the #3 or 4 spot, Monahan is the ideal player to play in a 3rd line role while getting comfortable in the NHL when the time comes.

Draft the BPA like they always do.

I wonder if they'll dare pick a Russian in the 1st round.

If the BPA is Russian, they trade the pick for a promising Swede.

Tim Murray kinda acknowledged Zibanejad was not the BPA (Hamilton was) but they needed a forward badly.

Hamilton is nothing special really.

Wonderful, that's the same kind of thinking that got us Brian Lee instead of Kopitar.

I'm not saying I agree, but I heard it on the radio that they took a forward while having Hamilton higher on the list.
And I'm not that big a fan of Hamilton either...

Anyway, I'm still disgusted by the injury. At least there's like 34 games left. McKinnon or Drouin would be a really nice consolation prize.

A guy with that size, speed and skill plus a RH shot is nothing special ?

Whatever, I hope we win the lottery, someone up there owes us big time.

I'd sooner have that debt paid with a Cup. Being a lottery team sucks balls and wishing for a lottery pick this early in the season is just wrong unless you're some kind of prospect groupie of which there are many here. Beer

There is wishing for it then there is expecting it. I expect it so might as well talk about it.

we're so decimated right now i don't think there's an equivalent to be made around the league right now as to the severity of this situation.
we're hanging on by an Andersson thread. the best there is to hope now is that the kids take it ver like they did a few years back and that the rest of the league suddently under-estimates us on nightly basis.

doomed I tell ya! we're all doomed!

Seriously, I don't see why anyone would go out and try to save this season by replacing Karlsson and or Spezza. It's impossible. The only saving grance might be ROR because he would fit into the organization on a really long term basis and is absolutely a player you would want to have on your team at any time.

Let things play out... maybe they win games 2-1, 1-0 the rest of the way and they somehow squeek into the playoffs. I doubt it but you never know.
