On the bright side, Gostisbehere signed his ELC and will probably be on the NHL squad next year.

Congrats, Lucky.

In other news, Buffalo could pick at 2 and 5 if, as expected, the Islanders flip the pick to complete the Vanek trade. They could do so in 2015, but that's looking like a very deep draft. Well done, Garth Snow.

Sounds like you have the same problem as the Flyers with centers.

The Panthers are gonna have issues with too many centers. Barkov, Bjugstad, Trochek, Pirri, Bennett/Reinhart. That's five top-2 C's, potentially. Though, the expectation is for Pirri and Trochek to learn wing. Needless to say, whoever we draft at #1 will be the third player for two spots. Supposedly Reinhart can play wing though.

Whatever it is, I dearly hope we take BPA and deal with too many centers. Taking Ekblad will be making the same mistake this franchise has made in the past. Taking the drop off in talent because they feel they don't need the guys like Staal or Nash or Lecavalier. BPA, please!!!!

BPA, always. You can always trade pieces away if you have a logjam of quality youth at a position. Never draft for need if there's a better player available.

Especially at #1. The drop off can be significant. Drafting for needs starts when the talent field levels out.

They're a problem for a different reason though. And I can only really think of one player that's genuinely struggling and that's Yakupov. Edmonton sucks for a variety of reasons.

The only cases where BPA has been notably wrong were with Patrick Stefan and Alexander Daigle. Both of which... the correct choice was still made. You can't fault someone for the unforeseen, but the panthers have been humiliated in the draft numerous times.

It took me a few minutes to understand what the hell BPA stands for. I even tried to think if there were any drafts prospects with those initials.

Let's make BPA into a hockey name...

Benoit Perrault Aucoin

I want him on my team.

Years of covering the NFL Draft has battle-axed BPA into my head.

I was going to copy and paste the Wikipedia entry for Bisphenol A but I'm way to lazy for that...

Strong overtime ice hockey action here in St. Louis.

I hope they die in this series, but I do really like the Blues' sweaters. Always have. I just like their logo. NHL gear for the most part is just awesome.
