Variety

Looks like we got all, kinds of forwards. I wonder if Harju can work the corners, cycle and pick up a few scores. Maybe a Modin lite?

Appears to be no immediate help other than the one possibly for Norfolk.

I like the pedigree provided by the Courtnall pick.

Obviously, with the scaling down of our ECHL development model the Lightning organization seems to be paying attention to where these guys are destined to develop. Seems like more college bound kids than ever.

Took one obvious chance at a home run with Cunti.

I think this is a group that will be tough to get a read on for two more seasons.

Did we just see a draft more for the next generation? Are these the guys we'll see Quick quarterbacking?
