Chicago goes for the highest skill also. Potential over "sure" thing. Skill over size.

Oilers get something they desperately need. A big defenceman.
Try to focus on THIS year...

Very happy with the pick, but there are some great players dropping, it's a good day for NYI fans!

Would have preferred Dobson but am happy they left Bouchard.

Kids skills are off the charts. You hope it translates
“ROR IS OVERRATED, MACKINNON IS A BUM, TAVARES IS DONE”

Hugh 5'10. God I hope he has a growth spurt and adds at least 2 inches.

Not really. Actually skill is far more important than size.
Doesn't that depend on the position ? :wink:

No, the trigger doesn’t need size.
The only HW the Canucks need

Benning just bet his job on a small D. I trust his instincts in player skill and as has been noted, he looked 'over the moon'. Let's hope this bet works. I like the choice as that is where the game is going.

Is it too late to trade for a mid round pick?

Has there ever been a 1st round with no picks traded?

Leftie was hoping for a rightie
