I thought Gaudette was a 1st rounder too the way the Canuck fans were crying hysterically, to be honest with you(just another failed Hobby winner, but a viable depth guy).I think I was just reading what you were trying to say wrong, especially because you were counting Reichel but not including him in the 12 deep. 9 Top 12 picks is nice, but I mean Strom, Borg, Nylander, Connolly, are all players that have found themselves there after not living up to the top 12 pick potential and being traded. Coming to a team coached by someone who his practically younger than them.
I just like the idea of Boqvist as a FWD who has great defensive training now, but I want his mentality to be Quinn Hughes and attack...
I know Hawks seem they would never go for it. Any of Kampf, Kurashev, Hagel make me happy slotted in there and bring speed, its likely one of them heads to Seattle though.
