This thread is a good start to acquaint oneself with players that aren't Lafrenierre and Byfield

You're not excited to see what our 7 late round picks turn up?

Articles like this bug me. Name the players or this just sounds like fiction!

For the record, the guy who took a #2 on his girlfriends car was Kevin Hayes.

I'm curious about the guy who went to team video analysis meetings in the nude.

In my defence, they did tell me a suit was optional.

My biggest takeaway working with elite coaches such as Darryl Belfry and Adam Nicholas (StrideEnvy) is that player development cannot be disassociated from scouting.

Players with solid junior production sometimes don’t translate because of technical weaknesses never addressed by the teams that draft them.

Players who score in minor pro sometimes can’t crack an NHL roster because their patterns of play are easily neutralized by high-level defenders.

Players with modest production in lower league occasionally play better against tougher competition because of their ability to leverage stronger linemates.

Happens all the time.

That actually is kind of surprising.

There was some quantity sure, quality... not so much.

Boyes, Kadri and Steen were the only forwards who averaged over .5 PPG in their career.
Gunnarsson was the only real top 4D.
Rask was the only quality starter and then there was Reimer.

To make things worse, only Kadri and Reimer of those that had their best years with the Leafs and got nothing notable in return for the rest. Although they were able to turn Schenn into JVR

Basically, 10 years of drafting got them Kadri & JVR as top 6 forwards, fringe starter Reimer, and a bunch of nothing. The team results have reflected that.

Please remember that this analysis focused purely on finding NHL players. The quality of the players was not taken into consideration at all, so a player who plays 100 NHL games on the fourth line is worth the same as a Hall of Fame player.

This is from the article. I appreciate that he's upfront about it but it feels like maybe it also warrants a mention that Detroit and Toronto were, by the mid point of the decade, also two fairly old teams that probably had more opportunities for fringe NHLers from the draft than other teams.

Thommie Bergman picks bringing huge swings as well: Carl Gunnarsson, Anton Stralman, Leo Komarov, Viktor Stalberg all came out of the 6th and 7th rounds. 2006 was a tidal wave of adequate NHLers from our picks (6/7 played over 100 games).

Gunnarsson was the only real top 4D.
Think a case could be made for Stralman too.
It's not denial...I'm just very selective about the reality I accept.
