NHL Draft

Draft grades

From Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated:

As much as Tampa Bay improved, top marks go to the Phoenix Coyotes, a team that last week lost Blake Wheeler, its 2004 first-rounder, and desperately needed some positive news. They got it by adding a veteran No. 1 center, Olli Jokinen, in a swap with the Panthers, and now have established themselves as a team ready to make life interesting in the Western Conference.

Read all Muir’s reviews here.

I am not a fan of post-draft winner/loser articles. Muir makes good points throughout, but it is almost impossible to say who were the draft’s biggest winners/losers. The only draft review articles I am interested in are ones written about drafts that took place five years ago. Prior to five years, it is very difficult to see which teams had the best drafts.

The Jets are back in action tomorrow as they look to break their slump and conclude the pre All-Star schedule with a win vs Blues.

Speaking of wins, both the Moose and Ice won today.

We’ll have plenty coming your way on Monday so keep it locked to
