  1. The guy we selected with that 4th rounder was ranked #74 by Craig Button and NHL Central Scouting, and has pretty good comps in one statistical model: https://mobile.twitter.com/Felix_Sicard/status/1313928619970883584 We could look back on that trade and really end up loving it. Not that it’s not already a good one. 3 years for Grant is too long, but he’s always a player you can move at the deadline any given year.
  2. 3.9 at only 3 years is a decent deal for him. Definitely a solid upgrade over Gudbranson, who was making 4m.
  3. If this means we’re using that money to replace him with a better player, then good. Otherwise, I’d rather keep him and then get a better return at the trade deadline. He was decent for us.
  4. I’m surprised the Ducks took one of the players I mentioned last night with the 36th pick! That Hockey Prospecting scouting website that had Perreault ranked #8 had Colangelo at #23. I’m a bit bummed we passed on Zion Nybeck at 104. Carolina took him at 115. He was mostly ranked from 30-73. Could be a steal for the Canes years down the road. The guy we got instead (Thimo Nickl) was ranked as high as 74 and as low as 92 so the value was there. I’m really surprised we took Arytom Galimov. That screams swinging for the fences, and why not with a 5th round pick? Overaged Russian forward, but he was ranked 117 and 119 at two places I saw. It’s good to see he’s off to nice start for his KHL team.
  5. Did a little digging, and I’m actually more interested in who might be available at 67 and 104. There’s some interesting guys that would be a huge reach at 36, but could still be available at 67 and maybe even 104. The Ducks should probably have the chance to grab a forward with a 1st round grade at 36, especially if a defenseman or 2 get taken before them. If Murray/Madden like a few players in the 37-65 range just as much as the guys still available at 36 I wouldn’t be surprised if they traded down to get 2 picks in that range. I’m not so sure Gunler, Peterka, and Mysak impress me so much more than some of the other forwards in the later 2nd or 3rd round. At least in terms of projecting putting up offense. For example, there’s a center named Ty Simlanic. He’s ranked anywhere from 31-51 (one place has him at 19). If Gunler, Peterka, or Mysak is available at 36 and someone really wants him, I don’t think it would be so bad to trade down a few spots, get Simlanic, and get another 3rd. Sam Colangelo is a similar guy. There’s a number of guys like this in that 31-60 range. There’s a guy I’d like to get at 104 named Zion Nybeck. He’s undersized at 5’8, but he’s a scorer. He’s mostly ranked in the 60-70s. Probably won’t be available at 104, and there could be better value at 67.
  6. I don’t read it like that. That assumes Murray/Madden don’t consider the two D in a tier above the forwards. Considering some scouts had Sanderson #3, and many rankings had Drysdale at #4, there’s some legitimacy there. Plus, if Murray/Madden consider the draft deep at forward, it’s possible they saw better value in going D at #6. I’d say it looks good so far getting Perreault at #27. Obviously we won’t know for sure for a number of years.
  7. “Martin and I had decided awhile back that, if at all possible, we were going to get a defenseman with that pick,” Ducks general manager Bob Murray said, referring to assistant GM Martin Madden. “We had two defensemen that went side by each. We had them (ranked) side by each, so once Ottawa took Sanderson, we were not playing around with that draft pick any more. “We were going to take the pick and get the defenseman we wanted. It worked out very well for us today.” https://www.ocregister.com/2020/10/06/nhl-draft-ducks-take-jamie-drysdale-with-sixth-pick/ This explains what LeBrun tweeted out about the Ducks getting good offers for #6, but then decided not to trade down. If Ottawa didn’t take Sanderson there’s a good chance the Ducks would have moved down a few spots and still got either Sanderson or Drysdale.
  8. Damn, he’s already 198 pounds at 5’11. That’s a good body.
  9. Ducks take the sniper, Perreault. Hopefully the effort issue is just noise.
  10. Highest rankings I’ve seen: Bourque: 13 Gunler: 18 Perreault: 17
  11. Unless we trade down we have the opportunity to draft one of Gunler, Bourque, and Perreault. That’s pretty good. Perrault is said to have one of the best shots in the draft.
  12. I hope Zary drops to us. I’d be surprised. Button had him at #12, and most in the top 20.
  13. Lapierre seems like a Caps pick. Could be the steal of the draft if the injuries don’t derail him and he develops.
