Interesting to see what comes down the pipe in Edmonton now.

Pajaarvi hasn't really shown he has the consistency for the NHL game.....so far.

Eberle has been a pretty big piece of that young gun line in Edmonton.

All the focus today is on a line of #1's. Hall - RNH - Yakupov.

They still have no defense.

They still have no goaltending.

I wonder if Ryan Murray is crying a little bit inside.....went #2 to a Russian, and he ends up in Columbus. Ouch. :P

Buffalo trades up to take a big-ass centre.

Grigorenko isn't small either so it looks like Pegula is sick of looking at the likes of Gerbe and Pominville getting pummelled on the ice.

Center's still available, who I wouldn't mind the Canucks getting.

http://www.tsn.ca/draftcentre/feature/?id=9826
Stefan Matteau - 6'1 210lbs
Stefan is capable of wreaking havoc in the game with his combination of skating, skill and size. He has excellent speed and can close on opponents quickly and when you combine this with a desire and willingness to make physical contact, it can be very uncomfortable for opponents.

T̶o̶m̶a̶s̶ ̶H̶e̶r̶t̶l̶ ̶-̶ ̶6̶'̶2̶ ̶1̶9̶8̶l̶b̶s̶
Tomas is a very effective and efficient center. He takes a cerebral approach which finds him in proper position on the ice but always ready to take advantage of opportunity. He forces opponents into mistakes without the puck and when he gains the puck, his awareness, vision and puck skills allow him to threaten offensively. He is a very good passer but given the opportunity to shoot, he can be dangerous.

Brendan Gaunce
- 6'2 215lbs
Brendan is big, strong two-way center. He is a good skater with a good stride and he moves well. He can improve his quickness and by doing so, he will become more difficult to stop because with his size, when he gains a step, an opponent is faced with a losing proposition. He is smart and plays the game well both with and without the puck.

Scott Laughton - 6'0 180lbs
Scott is not going to overwhelm you in any one area of the game but he's going to contribute to winning in all areas of the game. He has excellent hockey sense and is capable of playing any situation in the game. He is smart defensively. He is smart offensively. He can adjust to different circumstances and excel. He leaves himself in strong position on the ice so he's always ready to make the appropriate play for the situation. He's a competitor who is tenacious and has an edge to his game and he will assert himself. He's a good skater with strong balance and he has the agility that allows him to move side-to-side and open room for himself which also gives him better options for passing. He has an under rated shot and can beat goaltenders from out because he doesn't telegraph his shot and he's always aware of passing options and that holds goaltenders in the net who have to be aware of the potential for that pass. A very effective, determined player who will do whatever is necessary to help the team win.

Mark Jankowski - 6'3 170lbs
Mark is a late bloomer but certainly a testament to the adage; it doesn't matter where you start but where you finish. He was not on any scouting radar at the outset of this season but when he did appear, he became a bright, blinking light. He is an excellent skater with a long, efficient stride combined with agility, quickness and balance that allows him to impose himself on the game. He can beat defenders 1-1 and is capable of opening up ice for himself and breaking down opponents for his team's gain. His puck skills are very good, with his playmaking and passing taking the lead but his shot should not be underestimated. His sense and vision is excellent and he's capable of making plays that open up terrific offensive chances. He is unselfish to a fault but when the game is in the balance, he takes charge. He competes and works in all areas of the game and as he continues to physically mature, he has the potential to be that big, skilled center that NHL teams covet.

I was waiting for McGuire to repeat his comment.

I gotta ask, have Sabres seen enough of Coho?

LOL
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
