Well I'm not a huge fan of Tkachuk.... but will concede he'll eventually be a Top-6 NHLer.

Elliot is 31 and has run hot-n-cold his entire career... his maximum over the past 5 seasons is 46 gms-played.

Calgary only had 2 late 2nds (Parsons - G + Dube - C).. just one pick per round thereafter + extra late 7th.

The Flames have a lot less than we do in the way of prospects... they will be a bubble team at best for all eternity.

I really hope you're right. If in fact Tkachuk is the real 'mckoy' as a first liner down the road, it'll be a reality that we will have to live with while hopefully being consoled by Juelevi's greatness! (I hope) :|

I'm sorry but we got bigger problems at forward once the 36 year old Sedins retire than we do at defence. Juolevi, Sergachyov and Chychrun are "maybe" top pairing D men while PLD and Tkachuk are pretty much guaranteed first line players.

If we don't walk out of this draft with one of Dubois or Tkachuk this management regime will go down as the worse regime since the regime of the mid eighties Cam Neely trade era.
There is gold in them there Hills 8-)
