Re: NHL Draft and Off-season Thread - Hopefully Patrick Kane Doesn't Go Home to Buffalo This Summer Edition
The draft is finally here, just when I got my sleep schedule fixed.
Last year I chose to root for the Avalanche after they drafted Rantanen. They only let him play 4th line minutes while in NHL and he had to spend most of the year carrying their weak AHL team. The Avs in general sucked, AND there are rumors that they want to trade away the few good players that they do have. Imo they should keep Barrie/MacKinnon/Duchene/Landeskog, that's a good core. Get better players to replace the Tanguay/Boedker slot and Iginla. Varlamov is tradeable for a good defender. Goalies are unpredictable anyway. I'm scared for what trades await.
