2013 Entry Draft Open Thread

2091
NHL Draft
2013 NHL Draft

The Leafs will welcome ~seven new prospects into the organization over the course of the afternoon and evening. If it’s all they do, that’s fine by me.

Some news and rumours tidbits from the past couple of hours:

– Pierre Lebrun has dropped a Twitter bomb, quoting an NHL exec who says we’ll see 10 trades today at least.

– I bet the whole Letang to Toronto thing started with something like this – Letang’s agent Kent Hughes said, “Contact that Rossi guy and let’s drum up a rumour about Kris being discontented in Pittsburgh. Let’s say he would like to go to Toronto, that way shit will really hit the fan. We’ll get $7+ million a year.” Then they did.

– Feeling the squeeze, the Penguins then moved RFA Tyler Kennedy to the Sharks for the 50th overall pick (tweet).

– Ryan Rishaug reports the Hurricanes will likely be moving their fifth overall pick. .

– The Leafs are out of the mix for acquiring the fifth overall pick (Dreger), which is fine because the rumoured price didn’t make sense.

– The Canadiens are actively looking to move up, per Dreger.

– The Flames had talked about moving the 6th overall in a deal for Tyler Seguin but reportedly are leaning towards keeping the pick.

    From Dreger:
    Canes have 2 firm offers and a 3rd nibbling on 5th overall. Toronto is out. Carolina may wait until 4th pick to make a deal.

    • 2minutes

      Shit. I really wanted a top 5. Oh well.

      • ProfessorRance

        2minutes That asking price was insane.

        • 2minutes

          Well we don’t really know what the actual asking price is. But I wouldn’t be giving up Gardiner. Also wouldn’t be adding onto Reilly to get it either.

        • ProfessorRance

          2minutes We might be seeing the real price coming soon. No way would I add either to trade either.

      With Dreger’s record of reporting lately, that may mean we’re still in the running.  Hope not.

      • Black_Hawk

        Knights2Leafs bermudaboy yeah i rather keep reilly

      ingy56 thought they’ve gotten more

  • Black_Hawk

    Glad we are out of the 5th pick sweeps b/c i rather keep Reilly. IF Barkov is a guaren dam tee i dont want that pick.

  • http://mapleleafshotstove.com/ LeoTheLion

    Too bad about falling out of the running for the 5th. Rielly + would have been crazy though

    • wyatt956

      @LeoTheLion 
      It would have been silly. Rielly alone may be worth more than whoever is available in that slot (Monohan?)

    • Black_Hawk

      Loric76 pretty much

    • http://i.imgur.com/MyKj5C3.gif ingy56

    Mackinnon sounds like a moron when he talks. Ever since Dion, I would be shy to draft a meathead when you could draft a guy like Jones who sounds real smart.

    • Black_Hawk

      borjesundin He is just shy

    • Alec Brownscombe

          THAT’S OUR CAPTAIN YOU ARE SPEAKING ABOUT!

      • borjesundin

        Yep – Nurse sounds like an Ivy Leaguer
        Mackinnon is known for being a dick too. Jones was 10x better at WJC.

        • dlb eh

          borjesundin
