More combine

Here's a couple of interesting vids from

Them Canadiens sure do love their hockey. Heck without them we wouldn't hear squat about this combine. Time Warner needs to pick up TSN -- it wouldn't leave my TV.

Couple of names to keep an eye on Scioto:

John Moore - D
Ryan Ellis - D
Scott Glennie - C
Zach Kassian - RW
Dmitry Kulikov - D
Jacob Josefson - C
Oliver Ekman-Larsson - D

As you can see.. there should be quite a few centers and d-men to choose from which certainly address some depth in our pipeline.

Of course no matter what you always go BPA and then make trades to address gaps in your depth (see Lalande trade at deadline).

Also there is said to be a top 7 and then the talent level drops. From there I've heard that there isn't a big gap from 8 to about pick 50.

Sounds like a decent year to have a 2nd rounder which is why I'm not ruling out Howson trading down to regain a 2nd round pick.
