So for those who wanted the Ducks to tank:  Do you think we could have done better than Zegras (outside of Hughes or Kaako of course)?

Its difficult to answer at this time, there are more players who could be the 3th best...

Will Kaliyev fall to the Ducks?

Edit: He was supposed to go in the midteens, we may get a 2nd steal.

Anyone think Lavoie would be a good pick at 29th?

Absolutely. We could get him, Kaliyev or Brink. Teams are going bonkers on defensemen. If we get one of those guys, then I'm going to be very happy with our draft so far.

Who is that girl at our desk wearing a #19 draft sweater? Looks like it says Patterson or something like that on the back. Is that a clue to our next pick or just family of a staffer whose name is slipping my mind at the moment?

I think he's falling because I've heard he doesn't have a good work ethic. Kind of a lazy guy.

Aaaah. Guess we won't take him then.

True. It's funny how Murray said that they need to score more goals in Anaheim and yet doesn't take Kaliyev. 36 goals in 81 games for Tracey isn't bad and they said he was rising really fast. Maybe Murray thought he wouldn't be there at #39. Overall, I'm content with our draft so far

Kaliyev from everything I've seen and all the opinions I've read does not like to play defense and just floats around in the offensive zone. Sort of like a more skilled version of Sprong if that helps.

i'm not disagreeing, but i think the best TEAMS have a few skillful aholes on their rosters.  we're lacking in that department.

See Getz. Classic A-hole aka hard nose player who also has awesome skill. Great combo.

Yeah, but if he's scoring 30+ goals a season, then he can float to the moon for all that I care. Murray would be one of the GM's least likely to risk taking a player like that.

Teams passed him up in the first round for some reason. The GM's interviewed after the picks were basically saying they were looking for leadership skills and work ethic.

Reading about Zegras and Tracey and watching their highlight reels, I’m very happy with the Ducks 1st round picks.  But they make me feel really old now as they are 4 and 6 months younger than my son!

Wow! Zegras! that's crazy...I can't believe what Detroit did...that's just...what???? time will tell...but I mean...is Yzerman that blind to what other GMs are gonna do...if that's your pick...trade your pick for something else and take him later then. I dunno...weird pick.
