2016 NHL Entry Draft Party Thread Day 2

Okay folks, welcome to Day 2 of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft. The picks last night were… interesting? Overall, a lot of players went a bit off their projections, and there weren’t a whole lot of trades. Not like the wheeling and dealing of last year. Bruins made the smart choice and drafted BU defenseman (Right shot!) Charlie McAvoy with the 14th overall pick, but went a little crazy with #29, selecting the USNTDP’s (and U. Wisconsin commit- future teammate of Bruins prospect Cameron Hughes) Trent Frederic (a Centre), in a move that #SHOCKEDTHEWORLD . Naturally, twitter reacted with its accustomed dignity and aplomb. The bigger news was that there was no big trade for a defenseman, and apparently Sweeney was saying that anyone ‘selling’ was asking for both 1sts AND Pastrnak to start off with. So yeah, no thanks.

 

Anyway, grab yourselves some coffee and lets do rounds 2-7!

Disappointed that the Bruins did not add to their RW prospect pool
