    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.  

    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.

    Sounds too much like Travis Yost.  Pass...

    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.”

    I saw one mid-point ranking where he was 27th (NA). Maybe his stock has risen.

    I'll stick with Brown. If he remains in the high 20s and we pick 8-12 then trade up with a team that needs a D (there are nice defensemen in that range).

    You got something against Brown? Big center, hockey in his blood, born in the USA but *chose* to play for Canada.

    No. Brett Hull was a traitor. You can't blame a kid for where he's born when his family is living there at the time. And you can't blame him for his parents' choice to stay there. He's got maple syrup in his veins.

    I looked them up. Kyle Connor plays hockey; he was also drafted by Winnipeg last year (17th overall). Jake Travis and Landon Logan play baseball. Couldn't find a Cody Tyler, but Cody Tyler White is a professional bull rider.

    Do you take anything seriously?

    I made up some prospect-ish sounding names.

    Fun fact: The guys I made up have about the same chance of being NHL superstars as most of the actual prospects fans trip over themselves for.

    Matthews and the two Finns are solid. I think this draft is actually going to be a very good one.
