Default Looking

I was looking around this pm and found draftsite.com and they have us picking Trouba at 11 and Keokkoek at 23. In the second they have us taking Slepyshev, Pearson and Bozon. Also they have Ceci and Reinhart going after pick at 11. Any comments?

I'll play this game. Assuming players fall and/or we win the lottery, my wants from the top to our pick:

1. Yakupov
2. Grigorenko

Asked on twitter if Ceci, Dumba, Maatta and Trouba were all available who would BP pick and they said Dumba. Ceci and Maatta are both over 6' tall and 200+ lbs. Trouba is over 6' and just under 200. Dumba is under (just barely, I know) 6' and only 173 lbs.

I've read that he plays a physical game, are there no concerns about his durability with such a small frame or is he so many years away from making an impact that its not really an issue?

Anyone agree/disagree with the Dumba selection assuming all of them were available?

Dumba might be the best Dman in the draft. If he is available when we pick then I'm doing barrel rolls around my living room.

...and if we pass on him for somebody who wasn't on my radar..like Connolly, I'm throwing my shoes at the television.

Default Two

Two of the prognosticators at NHL.com have us getting Dumba, but at #7 if memory serves me right, so we need some help from the lottery.

Another thing to keep in mind is Dumba is right handed. Pretty much exactly what we need in our system.

With the added bonus of saying Dumbass when he makes a mistake
