Is Potato the new name?   I think we should be more worried about G and D, a lot of teams have centers and proceed to be aweful teams.   But yes we need C too.

 

I will concede, if there is a statistical tie-breaker between Jarvis and Coronato, it's that Coronato was drafted 10 months older.   But I wouldn't call this or anything else definitive, they both have incredibly high ceilings.    I don't know that the goalie debate is over yet though.   Wallstedt really dropped, Cossa didn't exactly rank out-rank either.   At least one of those two I feel may be the highlight of this draft a few years from now.   For a later discussion.

 

Tired of typing his name.

How about Covid?

Or Corona?

 

I have heard some suggestion that in a normal draft year (normal schedules and scouting) he would have gone top 5.

I'm just happy we didn't go for a safer pick.

 

Some suggestions about Wallstedt are that he's not suited for E/W hockey.

Don't know if I buy that.

Detroit got the big Galute.

In 5 years they might be wishing they went Wally.

 

Had we had a 2nd pick, I might have been higher on selecting a goalie, or perhaps a decent D-man.

The two goalies are long term project for the teams that selected them.

It was a perfect year for that 2nd pick, I would have loved that too.

Our 2 picks in the 2nd and 3rd are fine.

Would I have preferred other being picked?  Sure.

Doesn't make them wrong.

I wish we had had a second second.

There were others that went nearby that I would have liked to take a swing at.

So many dropped from the 1st.

Had we had 2, there was a better chance of picking one of them.

With only 1 pick, Stankoven, Chibrikov, and Raty would be considered big risks.

Tuolmaala could have been pick 1 and Stromgren pick 2.
