@TGfireandice: RT @TSNBobMcKenzie: LAK get conditional 7th-rd pick for Brian O'Neill going to NJD. O'Neill was AHL MVP last season. Conditions relate to GP/re-signing.

Nah, we have Detroit's 3rd and that's it. We don't have our own third - that went to Pittsburgh - and I believe so did the pick that the Devils are getting from Florida for Jagr - that went to Anaheim for Palmieri. I doubt Toronto lets us have next year's 3rd - they will probably wait until 2018. And we got a 4th for moving down in the 2nd round this year, not a 3rd (as was previously reported)

oh ok, I still thought that the trade with Ottawa gave us a 3rd. I knew we didn't have ours, but I thought we still had the one from Florida.

Pretty sure we have four 3rd round picks for next year now.

Thought Zacha, Hrabarenka, Severson, Kalinin, Coleman, Jacobs, Pietila, looked pretty good. Santini looked solid and had a few nice hits as well. Quenneville also had some nice plays.
Biggest things I noticed:
.Zacha is so strong on the puck and smart without the puck. So many times players would try to check him and he would basically just shoulder them off. The goal Severson scored was set up by Zacha as he fought off a few checks and found Severson in open ice. Zacha also made a bunch of good reads without the puck to shut down opposing plays. He had a really good nueutral zone interception that sent him in on a breakaway, unfortunately there was a player still on the ice from a line change and It got called for an offsides. He had one chance to show off his one timer in the 2nd period, and the kid can really shoot the puck. Jacobs blocked the shot but was limping on the ice for the rest of the shift.

.Severson is so good at seeing open ice, which we kind of knew already. There were so many times were he would find a seam for a breakout pass through the neutral zone. He looked like he was paired often with White and Fitzgerald often so he seemed to be taking less risks in terms of pinches. Had two really good looks to the net, 1 ended up being a goal.

.Jacobs stood out the most in my opinion in the offensive zone. He made some really good passes to find open players and had some good give and go's to get himself in a shooting area. He could have easily buried a few, just missed the net going high.

.Coleman was pretty physical all game and has some speed to his game. Noticed him mostly breaking up plays and causing turn overs for the other team. He also had a few good chances, one being a breakaway.

.Hrabarenka looked solid. Didn't do anything flashy or anything just played really well at both ends of the rink, later ended up getting a goal (although I felt like it was a softie by Blackwood). He was probably the most affective dman for the white team.

.I felt the same way about Pietila as I did Coleman. Used a lot of his speed to break up plays had a few really nice hits and wasn't afraid to get into the corners. Reminds me a little bit of Parise, very doubtful he turns into anymore more than a 3rd liner though.

Kalinin, looks like he can be a pretty solid NHLer. The guy has some speed, made some nice passes and looks to the net. He was on a breakaway and was tripped up but rather than giving up he pushed the puck up and Kerfoot picked it up to score. He also scored in the shootout where he roofed it on the backhander.

Overall it was a fun event, glad that something like this was finally open to the public. It was pretty cool seeing the openness of people on the organization. Saw Lou, Hynes, and Dano talking to fans (they were sitting at tables roped off but close enough for people to talk to them/get pictures with.) And after the event they had the players skate around and throw signed pucks out into the crowd.

I have two tickets available, they're $10 each. I'm not scalping for extra money, so much as I was scalped. Bought two extras from someone at $10 each for some friends of mine who just bailed, so just looking to recoup. I'm putting them here before Facebook, so let me know if you want them. I am willing to sell them separately as it seems a few of you guys want to go and need singles.

PayPal or Chase QuickPay is preferred. First come first serve, as far as replies go.

I would buy one off of you if you still have one available. Let me know, thanks.
