Alex and I will once again continue the Young Guns prospect draft. We are drafting:
6 9 forwards, 4 defensemen, 1 goaltender
Total of 22 young players with a birthday year no later than 1986 (24 yrs old max)
Contract status and/or cap hit will not be taken into account
The draft will take place live in the comments section for all readers to follow, so be sure to come out and provide your two cents as it happens. More details after the jump.
The intention of this exercise isn’t as a fantasy draft, it’s not the accumulation of points. We’re essentially carving the Leafs prospects into two sides and evaluating which of the two squads has more appeal.
Alex had first pick overall .. The following players have already been drafted from last night’s failed attempt. (Alex says his phone died .. in a bar .. with beer .. right.)
Forwards â€“ Kessel, Bozak, Kulemin
Defense â€“ Gunnarson, Aulie
Forwards â€“ Kadri, Versteeg, Dâ€™Amigo
Defense â€“ Schenn
The following are all the remaining eligible players:
