    Late first round draft pick possibilities

    Barring a collapse, the Bruins will likely be picking in the 20's or (hopefully) 30th. For those following the juniors, who do you like out there for likely picks? If there's anyone following the Q, I'd be curious to hear what you have to say about Samuel Morin.

     

    From my spot on the west coast, I've been impressed by a few possibilities. Nicolas Petan with the Winterhawks has speed to spare, and also impressed me with his defensive play. Not to fall into bruinsgenius world but, I've also liked Bowey with the Rockets - fairly big and dependable D. and not bad hands. I've also liked what I've seen from Lazar with Edmonton and Mirco Mueller with the Silvertips (another big D - but better on the breakout than Bowey, but more liable to defensive gaffs). There's not one damn Giant I'd think of taking in any of the 7 rounds.

    If the Bruins don't trade the pick for a PMD and go for a forward I like Adam Erne, Kerby Rychel or Curtis Lazar if they drop. If PC goes Defensman Shea Theodore is a bruiser and plays allot on the PP.

    Any defenseman over 6'2" who throws his weight around and has just a touch of skill.

    I'd love an other Mark Stuart type (let him go, Red. We want him back over here!)

    I doubt he would drop but Anthony Mantha of the QMJHL would be somebody I'd like to see them pick. I really like this kid. Big, skilled, skates really well. Seems to be getting better and better as he matures and develops. I wonder if the B's could package something to move up? They would have to get in to the 10th to 15th pick range I'm guessing.

    Trade any two from Providence and the next two years of first round picks and move into the Top 5.

    Yeaahhhhhh.  Stuart was a great pick in that draft.  Ugh, that one haunts me.

    I have a hard time envisioning PC doing this but I like the idea!

    That's why I asked abut Morin. I haven't seen him play but my brother raves about him. 6'7 , and growing, stay at home D.

    Just a guess but I'm thinking Jordan Subban will still be available later then the first round. 

    Good player but small.

    Not going to give up Krug, Spooner, Svedberg or Cunningham, they way they are playing, to move up in the draft.

    He's listed at 32 or 33 right now. I saw a piece on him on TSN or some sports show, and he seems to have a pretty good upside, good family/ brothers, but like Hamil, skilled but smallish. Joe Colbourne was big and talented, but hasn't done skawt. 

     

    Let's face it the B's have a horrible First Round draft record of late. (not including the gifts from Toronto). I say take the best player available at the position they think they need and just accept fate, because their 1st Round drafting leaves much to be desired. 

    Now second round seems to be where they hit their stride. Lucic, Krejci, little ball o hate...

    From what I have read and seen, limited as it may be, if I am one of those GMs, WHY do I make that move? This appears to be a strong Top 10 Draft, and all you are giving me are guys that are more likely to be 3rd and 4th liners. You'd need to put  top 6 fw. or a top 4 d to make that move. 

    Just saying, if it was me....

    perry I don't think draft picks, even top 10, are worth any current top-six or top-4 players. Prospects don't always work out, current players already did. Also late round picks can bring huge talent. Datsyuk!!!

    Re: Late first round draft pick possibilities

    I think this is the weakest draft class I have seen in the past 5 years, so I would not want to trade up anyways. After the top 5 most the guys would be mid to late first rounders in other drafts. The bruins will most likely have a mid to late 20s pick not a lot of dmen in that area to be selected which is our biggest need in the prospect pool. So hopefully they target the right forward prospect there has been some steals in years past that late in the first round. The bruins have been drafting great in the past 6-7 years I don't expect much different.

    Funny, I was thinking this was the stongest draft class I'd seen in the last five years, at least from a WHL perspective. The OHL may be weaker than usual but Finland, Sweden and the Q are all supposed to be contributing to a strong draft class this year.

    Yes, but you aren't an imbecile Red. I can't say the same about the clown you're replying to. You know, he's the guy who sees the prospects on a secret website that he's unwilling to share.

    Seguin, Hamilton, spooner, camara, subban, lucic, Marchand, koko. They have been drafting great in the past 6-7 years. You go back a couple more years you have bergy and krejci the bruins have done good through the draft to build a solid core group. Except for Horton the top two lines have been drafted and developed by the bruins.

    Outside the top 5 I feel like there isn't much that in 3-4 years that is going to make huge impacts on a team. The 2011 draft I would consider to be the strongest draft in recent years almost every player in the top 20 is going to be an impact player in the nhl. We will just have to wait and see. The sm-liiga is having a strong showing in this years draft.

    Re: Late first round draft pick possibilities

    Gotta disagree when you have a small-side speed demon like Petan, who leads  all elligible players in scoring (109 pts. in 66 games) not even currenly ranked in the top 20, that's a sign of a deep draft class. Domi, Rychel, Mantha, Gauthier, Shinkaruk - those are all players outside of the top ten that show serious potential to contribute at the NHL level. I haven't heard one scout complain this is a weak draft year.

    Re: Late first round draft pick possibilities

    I'm with red on this. The talent pool looks pretty deep to me even if there aren't a few guys at the very top that appear to be lock solid, can't miss, future MVP candidates. We'll know in a few years though, won't we?

    I'm hoping Cam puts PC in a headlock until he agrees to make a serious effort to move up in this draft...I don't think they need to get in to the top 5 or anything. I think they can find a serious scorer amonst the top 15 which is why this would be a good draft to move up if you can find a taker.
