Has Calvin Pickard's stock fallen so much that he won't be drafted in the first round?

Drafting a center does make some sense, though, Tim. We have little depth at the position beyond #4 and having a young center in the pipeline gives Stevie Y the flexibility to move #4 if he doesn't snap out of it this season.

Quite possible. I think he'll sneak in at the end or go at the top of the 2nd.

It appears that way. If he is better than Vinny it won't show for a few years. If the bolts draft for offense in the first round you'd think they would draft for immediate help seeing as how after the olympic break aside from Stamkos and Marty the team wasn't producing too many points.

But Burmistrov?? Johansen makes far more sense.

Thank you Tim,I agree. I don't want the Bolts to pick a Russian with their first round pick.

Hey, Smitty? Can't you see Russia from your front porch?

We'll... Stevie Y. tipped his hat today that he'll take the BPA with the #6, so perhaps a BoltProspect rank list is better?

Yeah I am closer to Russia than everybody so I know the Bolts should not draft a Russian. I learned that from Sarah.

When I bought my last cell phone (Samsung ROGUE), I would tell people it had an app where you could see Russia from your backyard... I really beat that one into the ground. /thread derail. Sorry Sotnos!

I think Nino and Tarasenko could both be good picks... obviously you'd be more inclined to get the Swiss (hopefully not a) Miss.
