    Douglas Hamilton.   Mom and Dad both Olympians, Brother plays junior with him, 6-5 frame, 98% average in school (brother also a brainiac).  WOW this kid's got some good genes!   I'll take that result come June.

     How exactly do Olympic parents, a brother and a nice grade point average translate to a successful NHL career?

    Intelligence, work ethic, high achiever, positive role models.   The kind of things NHL scouts research exhaustively before they draft a kid.   ISS has him ranked 7th overall, so I imagine he can play a little hockey too.

    Well HenrikZetterberg had ahigher GPI/Grade percentage than every single one of the 209 players drafted in front of him, so yeah, I think intelligence can play a long trm role in a player's success. Draft a guy with smarts,work ethic, rolemodels,and skill? Not a bad choice

    What selections do the lottery picks fall under?  1-5?

    It looks like the top 3 will be-

    1.Edmonton
    2.Ottowa
    3.Colorado

    4-7 could go any direction but right now its-

    4-Islanders (65)
    5.Florida (65)
    6.Atlanta (70)
    7.Toronto (70)

    There's a chance that Toronto's pick gets in there at #4.  How sick would that be?  Here's a link to all the NHL Mock Drafts.

    http://dcprosportsreport.com/NHLMocks.htm

    I'd love to get Landeskog, Ryan-Nugent, or Courtier.  Does anyone think one of those 3 could fall to us at pick #5?

    This is dead on. In addition, I'd bet the kid probably deals with pressure well.

    I go to almost all Ice Dogs games here in St.Catharines. This kid has great potential. I wouldn't object picking him if he was still available. He has been very impressive.

    Beaulieu is a solid D-man in both ends who only recently has added somewhat of a physical edge to his game.He's played most of his young career here in Saint John(midget included)so I've seen a large number of his games.He's improved dramatically over the past year and is sure to be a high 1st rounder.I wouldn't be at all dissappointed if he became a Bruin.

    Not to familiar with Beaulieu as he is in the QMJHL & I only subscribe to the OHL, but I hear positive things about him. Another player from the Ice Dogs to watch is the krafty little Ryan Strome. He is lighting up the league with 101 points so far. he is also projected to go in the top 10. I will be at the game tomorrow night when they play the Mississauga Majors. Should be great game between 2 power houses. I will be sure to keep tabs on both players.

    I'd take Murphy over Hamilton. If both are available when PC heads up to pick, it's pretty much a no brainer to pick Murph (nothing against Hamilton, though).

    The latest TSN list has Couturier at #6. I doubt he is still available then, but if he is, you CAN NOT pass on him. Solid two-way player. A lot of Berg and Jordan Staal in his game, except he's got more skill offensively than both of them did at the same age.

    I'd take Murphy over Hamilton as well, but yes these are all actually good indicators.  And yes, Chara's parents were Olympians.

    If he goes prior to 6th then somebody else is dropping.  We are then looking at Strome or Murphy.  Maybe an outside shot at Couturier.  I'm still smiling.  I'm going to be watching Hamilton for the rest of the year.  I think he may be available when the B's draft.

    I'm hoping Hamilton as well but just in case wanted an opinion on Beaulieu.

    It's too bad the Leafs won last night against Carolina.  Here's the rest of thier schedule-

    17MAR @Florida
    19MAR Boston
    22MAR @Minnesota 
    24MAR @Colorado
    26MAR @Detroit
    29MAR Buffalo
    31MAR @Boston

    2APR @Ottawa
    5APR Washington
    6APR @NJ
    9APR Montreal

    I see Toronto winning 5 of the next 11 games and finishing with the 8th overall pick.  But they could go on a tear, win 8 out of 11, and make the playoffs.  The only thing helping out the Bruins is that they play Toronto twice and the Leafs have to play 7 of thier remaining 11 on the road.

    How do you see it playing out?

    And would it be a total shock if they won only 2 of those 11? 

    I wouldn't be in the least bit surprised. 

    I also wouldn't be surprised if they won 8 of the 11.

    I can't even bring myself to think about the pick until the season ends.

    Very much to my surprise the Leafs have been winning.
    Didn't count on Reimer.
    Didn't expect Kessel to keep the work ethic up.
    Expected somebody to get hurt.

    They are fragile, and their tear could come to a dead stop at any time.
