Wilderness Walk: Draft Approaching

It's no NFL draft ratings wise, but it's still a great day - Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

Lets hope we draft a few more Haula's and a few less James Sheppards!!! Just find some offense Chuck!

With draft weekend approaching, here are my two cents:

General Draft Strategy: with the 18th pick select either Sonny Milano(Great hockey name), Josh Ho-Sang(big skill/big risk/big reward), or Nick Shmaltz(anyone going to UND is worth drafting).

Attention Chuck:
DO NOT DRAFT A GOAILE in the first round!
I repeat, Do not draft a goalie in the first round!!

Then either package picks together to move up into the tail end of the 2nd, where Chuck has had success before. OR sit back and draft as many Finnish-Minnesotan-Swedes as you can. Preferably players that either attended Shattuck or plan on playing College hockey. And preferably just draft forwards!

Then once you have done all this, draft a developmental goalie somewhere late in the draft.

Follow this plan and we can’t lose, A+ Draft!
