    Is this the right thread for our annual let's trade (established player) for a pick so we can get (insert future bust's name here) discussion?

    I think we should trade Hoffman for a pick so we can get Patrick Laine

    Last year the lottery was held on April 18, the first Saturday following the end of the regular season. Assuming they do the same this year, the draft lottery will take place on April 16.

    43 days until Draft Lottery
    Sens odds: 3.5%

    Now, that's the odds of winning the top pick. The remaining 13 teams that don't win the 1st overall are then in a draw for the 2nd, and then the remaining 12 are in the draw for the 3rd. However I have not (yet) found a site that calculates the odds for 1st, 2nd and 3rd. Guess we'll just have to wait 43 days.

    112 days until the actual Draft Day 2016.

    This had to be deliberate, right?

    In 10 years of following the Sens draft I have never been confident who they were gonna pick.

    I think it's time to swing for the fences in the earlier rounds. We've got plenty of character with Turris, Stone, Pageau, Lazar, White, Boro, Phaneuf. Time to go for flashy skill but not wait until round 3 or later. An upgrade at center will have to come from a trade, but that shouldn't stop us from drafting a high-skill center for 5-6 years down the road.

    Logan Brown is a 6'6" 222 lbs center.  Not likely a 1st rounder but he could be still around in the 2nd if the Sens aren't picking too late.  Did I mention he is 6'6" and 222 lbs?  At 18?  (well, he's turning 18 tomorrow)

    Edit: Son of ex-NHLer Jeff Brown and spends his summers outside Ottawa (he is US born but is Canadian).  6'6" center from Ottawa.  Slam dunk.

    Edit#2: I'd be he cheered *FOR* the RedBlacks.

    Those can be found in the later rounds in Europe. (those Ondrej Palats types of guys).

    I'd rather continue to load up on D tbh.

    Tyson Jost, C – Penticton Vees (BCHL): Very few players can claim the amount of success that Jost has experienced this year. He and Vees teammate Dante Fabbro both won gold at the Ivan Hlinka summer tourney and just won gold with Canada West at the World Jr. A Challenge. They’re also part of a juggernaut Penticton squad that has run up a 31-4-1 record in the B.C. League, which included an eye-popping win streak.
    “It’s pretty special when you go 23 games without a loss,” Jost said. “It’s nice to experience all those wins, but you just have to focus and try to keep getting better.”
    Well, how about getting yourself named MVP of the WJAC? Because that’s what Jost did, racking up nine points in four games to lead the tournament in scoring. A smart, strong player with excellent vision and a great shot, Jost was called “the real deal” by one NHL scout I spoke to and he’ll definitely be a first-rounder this summer when the draft hits Buffalo. Committed to North Dakota, Jost will be fun to watch with the Fighting Hawks next season.
    “North Dakota is such a great hockey program,” he said. “When you look at their rink and the facilities – it’s pretty special when you go into ‘The Ralph’ and see how nice the rink is and all the stuff that can help you develop into an NHL player. I see so much growth and improvement for me at North Dakota.”
    In the meantime, Jost will continue to tear it up in Penticton, where he is one of three players in the league to be scoring at a rate of two points per game (he has 61 in 30). And with the world juniors coming up, it’s hard not to think he will be one of those rare NCAA players with a shot at playing for Canada as soon as next year – President Tom Renney even joked he was “subliminally scouting” Jost and Fabbro at the WJAC.
    “You see some of your buddies there and think hopefully one day I can represent my country there,” Jost said. “It’s a special tournament and a prestigious tournament and we’ll cross that bridge when it comes.”
