Both goaltenders, both from countries and programs that are very good at developing goaltenders, Sweden and Finland. There's a chance that one or both come to North America to play in the OHL next year.Dansk is one to watch. I hope Korpisalo becomes at least a very competent backup.As far as Ryan Murray, right pick, very little bust potential. I think he was the smart, safe, easy play but a guy who will be here sooner rather than later. He's already very mature in size, intelligence, and skill. He may even be a Jacket on opening night.Admittedly, I know nothing about Josh Anderson, Daniel Zaar, or Gianluca Curcuruto (except that he has an awesome name).They got a shutdown defenseman, two very good goalie prospects, and should have had meaningful discussions about the future trade of Rick Nash. That's a solid weekend.

skatingtripods wrote:Wow.Stunning.You know, Griffin Reinhart, Mathew Dumba, Morgan Rielly...all of those guys could be as good or better than Ryan Murray. I really like everything I've read about Ryan Murray. But to turn down 6 lottery tickets is absurdly stupid, especially after you traded picks away for a mediocre goaltender with consistency issues.Terrible.

But nope , it is true , multiple sources on top of Yahoo have picked it up. Ryan Murry better be the second coming of Nicklas Lidstrom. I remember hearing a rumor that David Stern stepped in and told the Dolans that Isaiah Thomas had to go for the good of the NBA. I hope Bettmann can knock some sense into McConnell, in the same manner.

It amazes me that the Cbus flagship couldn't find Ohio guys to host their drive time show, instead they went with two hacks from Chicago, and Minnesota, who steal bits like "buy or sell", and "would you rather". Only radio station worth a damn in Cbus is CD 101. But personally I am glad I have XM.
