    Esposito fell right off the map in February.

    When do the next set come out?

    Oh, I was just going by TSN...who was pretty bang on about last draft and how lucky we were at 13. I'm just saying around top 10...cause I can't remember the actual pick number that MacKenzie used.

    Oh, I was thinking the same thing originally but with the way things have moved around, I'm thinking there's a pretty good chance the player we pick at 13 might be as good if not better than the player picked at... 6 or 7 for instance. Things are so close that it wouldn't shock me at all if 2 or 3 teams went kinda off the board and took a bit of a surprise pick.

    Last year, I correctly predicted the first seven or so picks. The one that surprised me was Okposo to the Islanders, I thought they'd go Mueller. But it was a lot easier, there was more of a consensus on each player. This year, I think there's a good chance I could predict the Top 3 and get none right

    BL - I'm assuming McKeen's will come out with their next list at the end of the month

    I too have been watching the prospects since around Christmas time and think if you don't pick top 7 it is a very big crap shoot.

    Voracek looks like he will be a beast while Cherapanov looks to be another Russian with an attitude like Zherdev and Kovalev.

    Before last year, the Leafs only once before selected in the 13th spot ... Jack Valiquette.

    Hey, what about you Habsy, do you think it's worth it to move up into that top 7? I don't personally but I like to hear what people think. I think that was a yes from Soco.

    BTW guys, I've updated the first post in the thread to include the latest ISS rankings.

    I think you saw a lot of picks traded at deadline because most teams feel it is a very weak draft. I don't see it as worth it to move up unless it is in the top 4. Picking at 13 (12 for Habs) could be just as good as 8 or 25 for that matter.

    Best thing to do would be to see who the Devil's plan on taking and draft that guy.

    ditto.

    I remember draft day when they moved up to draft Parise and every commentators were calling it a steal.

    LOL. They sure do know how to draft huh?

    I think they traded their first to get the Sharks to take Malakhov though.

    It was Pierre McQurire who was going nuts. He was screwing at every team that was not drafting him and then had an orgasm when the Devils traded up to draft him.

    The worth is that apparently there are X amount of kids that are potentially pretty good picks and then it drops off. Whether it be at the 7th or 9th or 11th or whatever spot. So JFJ best be trying to trade up to grab one of those picks to take away a lot of the risk of our pick...as that 1st round pick is pretty important to our team's future.

    But you'd be giving up assets to move into a position that is no more certain than at 13. PERSONALLY, I don't think it's worth it THIS year. What about next year to go for Stamkos?

    This draft is pretty weak. I mean a Jr. A player is considered one of the top 3 players in the draft. There really is no need to move up. Probably better to move the pick if you are going to be dealing, maybe even for a 1st next year.

    Unless you can make a move for Esposito.

    Or they could just ask Quinn who he'd pick.
