From TG:



A line of Landeskog, Josefson, Tedenby? Yes please.

Oh of course he then adds in that Larsson is friends with Josefson, Tedenby and Urbom... damnit


As much as I'm against drafting Landeskog 4th overall, that would actually be a pretty cool line and, hypothetically at least, would work pretty well. Josefson the playmaker, Tedenby the dangler and sniper, Landeskog the power forward picking up garbage goals... I can see it. Not to mention all the Swedish communication.

God damn it....Landeskog is left or right wing....every where I look its different...once he is left wing and the other time he is right wing.

If he is a RW it gets a lot more interesting.

He plays both wings, although he is primarily a RW, I believe.

Thanks for the info man


TGfireandice: Larsson said that his decision on whether he plays in Sweden or North America will depend upon which team drafts him and that team's plans.

Now this quote just made me eliminate the guy from our list...the idea of loosing a 4th overall pick on a guy that possibly wont even play for us is just horrible.

Edit: Oh just realized that he was talking about his junior or AHL career (development) :giggle: (Feel real dumb.)

No award for the stupidest post of the year ? I think this one would be pretty high.

Larsson or Landeskog if one of the two is available, which I doubt either one will be, In which case I say Dougie Hamilton.

I really think the Devils trade down and trade the 4th overall with someone for something in the 6 - 10 overall range and a 2nd rounder unless exactly what they want is looking them in the face at the 4 pick.


This wouldn't surprise me at all. Unless Lou and Conte are absolutely in love with someone who'd only be available at 4, having a pick this high is a bargaining chip Lou rarely has. I could totally see Lou trading down once or even multiple times if it meant getting more 2nd and 3rd rounders and still landing a guy Conte feels very highly about.

It would be like 2008 when they started out with the 21st pick, traded down twice and ended up turning that one pick into Tedenby, Burlon and Urbom.

In Lou We Trust.

I'd be happy with this. It seems like there could be lots of good value in the 8-10 range. Strome, Murphy, Zibanejad, Beaulieu. I'd expect at least 1 or 2 of them to still be around then. Maybe even Hamilton, who knows.

I don't know IF they are contemplating a trade down, but what struck me was TG had mentioned that STROME was the only 1 brought in for a 3rd interview, and the only 1 Lou sat in on!

Take that as you will, but to me that says they really like Strome and either a. making sure if they trade back he's the guy they want OR b. taking him @ 4!

DEVILS FAN FOR LIFE, DEATH TO LEAFS NATION! :horse:

:gd:

ACTUALLY, LL may have been there because he missed his 2nd interview...

AS PER TG.. Of the top prospects that were at today’s media availability (and were known to have second interviews with the Devils after the combine), center Ryan Strome was the only one who said he had another interview scheduled with the Devils tonight. It was to be his third with the team, but first that general manager Lou Lamoriello sat in on. For some reason, Lamoriello was not there for Strome’s second interview (and extra fitness testing) after the draft combine in Toronto.

I am hearing the Avs love Landeskog, and with the Larsson not in the Panthers lans really, looks like there is a good chance Larsson drops to 4.

Well no matter what happens and who they draft 99% of us will still cheer and support our team.

My personal Top 5 would be...(in no particular order)
  • Larsson
  • Hamilton
  • Strome
  • Beaulieu
  • Scheifele
Now i don't have RNH, Landeskog or Huberdeau on my list because i believe they are gone Top 3. Also i don't have everyone's other man crush SC as i just don't trust his skating OR his combine results even taking his case of Mono in to account. All the guys i like have some size, skill and 2 way game and all fill a need position with skill. Mind you 3.4.and 5 i would trade back to add something, wouldn't take at 4.

Only because I'm bored, but who would trade the 4th pick to Philly for their 8th pick and Bobrovsky?

No, and only because it's Philly. I'm a firm believer in not trading with your rivals.
