I get Red Line and THN. What I like about Red Line is they usually identify about a half dozen guys that none of the other guys have high on their list and more often than not, those guys make a decent run at being NHLers. Mark Barberio's a perfect example of that.

The new draft hats are up on NHL.com's shop. They look sharp. I like the gray.

Still ranked just outside the 2nd round, but yeah dropped a lot. Supposedly not having Ellis around exposed the holes in his game, especially defensively (ironic given all the criticism given to Ellis defensively), so there are a lot of question marks, he is talented but how much does that mean?

I see I missed Red Line's late season shock and awe:

http://www.usatoday.com/sports/hocke...ort/54474130/1

They have Grigorienko falling like a stone (and this was before it was revealed he has mono), Teravainen shooting up the charts to 3, and Vasilievski back in the top-10.

Trouba not in the top-10.

Oscar Dansk mentioned as the other 1st round caliber netminder. Dansk backstopped Sweden to Silver at the U18's, and played well with the exception of the final match when USA rolled Sweden 7-0. Dansk is more attractive (less risky) to me than Vasilievski and light years ahead of Subban. Dansk actually went to Shattuck St. Mary's for 3 years. His adjustment to North America will be pretty seamless. If we keep the Wings' first rounder, I would hope to snag Dansk with it. I had hoped he'd keep until the 2nd round, but no chance of that now.

I doubt Grigs falls out of the top-5. Hell, Galychenuk is still expected to go top-10 and he missed all year.

Besides, once you get mono you never get it again.

Nothing's for certain in this draft, other than the fact there's a lot of d-men in it and very few skilled forwards. Beyond that: nothing.
