Filatov #6 overall in 2008.  Still plenty of time for him to realize on that potential.  Good deal.

This was a pretty good trade.  Yeah, he sounds like Kovalev Jr. but they only gave up a third rounder for a guy that went 6th over all in 2008.  Low risk high reward.  I approve.

I'm quite happy they got Shane Prince. That was indeed a steal at 61.

Folks seem more excited about the Prince pick than almost any other.  Smallish at 5' 10" though.

Prince plays bigger than his measurements.  I attend all 67's home games.  Fast, good vision, and solid solid work ethic.  Never takes a shift off, never has excuses.  He's been invited to Team USA camp for the World Juniors.  Dorion has been to numerous 67's games so he has seen a lot of this kid. 

If he doesn't make it, it won't be for lack of effort or passion.  It may simply turn out to be a numbers game but right now my money is on Shane making it in two or three years

At 61, no downside to the pick for sure.  Nice to see players from local teams get a shot with the Sens after not getting chances for so many years.

I'm also really intrigued with Puempel. He always seemed to dominate against Ottawa last year. And apparently Burke looked pissed when Ottawa picked him just before Toronto could. The Kadri situation, just reversed?  :laugh2:

In his interview after being picked he compared his style to Patrick Sharp and Rick Nash - given they're two of my favourite players in the league, I'm excited to see what Puempel can do.
We all dream of a team of Chris Kellys.

As for Murray, I agree completely and have been saying this for awhile.  He seems to be better suited at best as a senior adviser/scout for the club, or at worst, the head of scouting for the club (the role that Pierre Dorion is currently holding), while someone more competent should be handling the GM duties.

I'm not sure it's that he's incompetent. I think he waits so long to pull the trigger on everything everyone knows what he's doing. He's always in the desperate position in almost every deal with other GM's. There's nothing out of the blue, that people don't get at first. There's no daring moves. He sits back until he's forced to do something and by then everyone knows his bargaining position.

Could easily be the sleeper of the first round.  A page back I listed the other CHL rookies of the year and about 90% end up being very good to excellent NHLers.

Matt Puempel is the pick that I'm most intrigued and interested in. 
He's a former CHL Rookie of the year, and the track record for the winner of that award is incredible.

2010–11 Nail Yakupov, Sarnia Sting[1]
2009–10 Matt Puempel, Peterborough Petes[2]
2008–09 Brett Connolly, Prince George Cougars[3]
2007–08 Taylor Hall, Windsor Spitfires[4]
2006–07 Patrick Kane, London Knights[5]
2005–06 John Tavares, Oshawa Generals[6]
2004–05 Benoit Pouliot, Sudbury Wolves[7]
2003–04 Sidney Crosby, Rimouski Océanic[8]
2002–03 Matt Ellison, Red Deer Rebels[9]
2001–02 Patrick O'Sullivan, Mississauga IceDogs
2000–01 Scottie Upshall, Kamloops Blazers
1999–00 Dan Blackburn, Kootenay Ice
1998–99 Pavel Brendl, Calgary Hitmen
1997–98 David Legwand, Plymouth Whalers
1996–97 Vincent Lecavalier, Rimouski Océanic
1995–96 Joe Thornton, Sault Ste. Marie Greyhound
Hmmmm, definitely keeping some nice company.
