    Ritchie?  What is it with you people in Ontario?  Is there something about the process of voting that actually destroys your brain cells?

    Wynne.  haha

    Kouba  Morning.  I will maintain the integrity of our secret ballet.  OK, I went with Nylander.

    I believe that if Nylander is still available, he’s the guy to get.

    I don’t know nearly enough about any of the potential draftees that’ll likely be picked at the #8 slot, but it would be nice to get a good 1C out of this years draft. Obviously, Nonis has to take the BPA weather he moves up, down or stays put.

    Agreed.  Leafs will take him over Ritchie given the choice.  In fact, if Nylander is gone and Leafs have to choose between Ehlers and Ritchie I would like to think TO will go with Ehlers.  Ritchie is tantilizing but just can’t pass on the skill and point production of Ehlers.

    Problem for Tor is who to choose if all the top-ranked offensive centres are gone at 8 and a top-skilled winger like Ehlers is also gone by the eighth pick?  Does Tor consider trading down a spot or two or just choose between Ritchie and Virtanen?
