1. Semin

2. Frolik

3. Oduya

 

Cammy Zajac Semin

 

Henrique Elias Palimeri

 

Ruutu Jo Frolik

 

Tootoo Gionta Matteau

all three of these guys will be overpaid. I mean if we can get them for cheap sure but its not gonna happen. Oduya will probably get in the 5 mil range for 4-5 years. No thanks. Semin and Frolik are the best wingers on the market now so they will both get some team to make a dumb, long term offer.

All good ole boy stuff aside, I don't see how Pronger is a first ballet HOFer

idk I never really understood the big deal about first ballot... Either a guy is a HOF or not. If someone gets in on the first ballot it doesn't mean they were necessarily a better player than someone who gets in on the 2nd or 3rd. Just my opinion though.

What is the track record for top ranked goalies by central scouting?

Mixed bag- 2003 to 2010 NA top goalies:

M.A. Fleury

Al Montoya

Carey Price

Jonathan Bernier

Jeremy Smith

Thomas McCollum

Matt Hackett

Calvin Pickard

 

In that time Rask, Enroth, Markstrom and Lehner were also top ranked Euros.

 

Again I don't think he's a poor pick, it's just that we have more pressing needs.

Everyone knows personal bias comes into these decisions so no surprise lindros is snubbed yet again.

It's a joke however that pronger is being inducted yet he's still able to be traded. This type of good ole boy treatment is the epitome of "Mickey Mouse organization" and is the biggest reason the NHL is a joke compared to other major NA sports leagues.

I'll go with what seems to be the average and say B. I know people wanted another forward in the 2nd round but the palmieri trade basically makes up for that IMO.

It would have been nice to trade up for a shot at Brazil but if the asking price was Merrill+ I'm kind of glad we didn't do it, I know we have a plethora of young D but Merrill is one who should be kept IMO.
