hey have you guys noticed how good the Leafs are at drafting d-men? And by good I mean absolute shit.
Dermott (2nd round, 34th overall)
Rielly (1st round, 5th overall)
Schenn (1st round, 5th overall)
Pateryn (5th round, 128th overall)
Holzer (4th round, 111 overall)
Stralman (7th round, 216 overall)
White (6th round, 191 overall)
Colaiacovo (1st round, 17th overall)
Harrison (3rd round, 82nd overall)
That's it from 20 years of drafting. One first pairing defenseman (outside shot for Dermott). Two, maybe three 2nd pairing d-men (at peak). 4-5 bottom pairing players. Hopefully at least one of Sandin, Liljegren, Rasanen, and Durzi work out.
Dumpster (starting in 2014):
Valiev, Finn, Loov, Percy, Nilsson, Robertson, Everson, Granberg, Blacker, Knodel, Smith,
MacWilliam, Mikus, Oreskovic, Vorobiev, Semenov, Doherty, D'Amour, Turon, Kronwall, Pilar, Bell, Kondratiev, Mojzis, Seikola, Velebny, Cote, Reynolds, Zion, Zavoral, Hedin, Metcalf, Svoboda, Rourke, Wolfe, Marchand.
Look who Nashville drafted:
Girard (2nd round), Jones (1st round), Ellis (1st round), Ekholm (4th round), Josi (2nd round), Franson (3rd round), Suter (1st round), Klein (2nd round), Weber (2nd round), Hamhuis (1st round), Skrastins (9th round)
Anyway, no one has said anything hockey related for a while.
