NHL Draft 2012: Day Two Open Thread

PITTSBURGH, PA - JUNE 22: Mathew Dumba, drafted seventh overall by the Minnesota Wild, poses for a portrait during Round One of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft at Consol Energy Center on June 22, 2012 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. (Photo by Jamie Sabau/Getty Images)

Yesterday, the Wild took a bold step for the future, drafting Mathew Dumba, a strong, big hitting, smooth skating defenseman with offensive powers still on the board. Dumba will add to the stable of defensemen in the system, and hopefully develop into the type of player the Wild need long term.

Today, the Wild old six picks, one in each round, selecting first at the 46 spot, which they got from the Devils in the Marek Zidlicky trade. It will be interesting to see who the Sharks take with the Wild's original pick with players like Colton Sissons, Sebastian Collberg, Pontus Aberg, Matt Finn, Ludvig Bystrom, Dalton Thrower, and Phil Di Guiseppe still available.

Will Chuck Fletcher make a package deal to move up in the second round? Package together later picks to add more picks in the second round? Do they stand pat and just try to find the gems in the left overs?
