And St. Louis gets a 1st rounder back for Ryan Reaves?!?

yikes.

They win the last hour of draft night.

And they cap it off with a great selection.

Reaves might be a worse player than Martin.

Pittsburgh moves down 20 spots to get Ryan Reaves. Wow.

Nashville grabs Eeli Tolvanen at 30. Sportsnet had him at 12. TSN had him at 17.

I wonder if Toews mentions how they got swept in the 1st round.

"10 years ago the Blackhawks took me at #3 which, coincidentally, is the same number of goals we scored in the playoffs this year."

The Hawks' first round selection has more vowels in his last name than goals they scored all playoffs this year.

This is weird... On June 23rd, 2011 Philly traded Richards and Carter. June 23rd, 2012 they traded JVR. June 23rd, 2014 they traded Hartnell. And today, June 23rd, 2017 they traded Schenn.

Corey Pronman's thoughts on the pick:

Quote
17. Toronto Maple Leafs
The pick: Timothy Liljegren, D, Rogle (SHL)
Nationality: Sweden | Pronman rank: 13

Scouting notes: You can tell when Liljegren has the puck. "He was able to quarterback a SHL power play when he was 16. You just don't see that," noted one scout. He's quite creative and quite skilled. He can make the in-tight plays and control the puck in ways that distinguish him as a puck mover. LIljegren skates very well and can get up in a rush, but it's his skill and offensive mind that elevate him to the highest levels. Although he's a very imaginative and effective puck mover, he can get himself into trouble. He gives the puck away a lot going for the one extra play. His defense isn't elite, but it's decent, as he can make a check and not get completely killed in his own end without the puck; however, there are times when he is a clear negative on that side on the puck.

Team fit: In Liljegren, Toronto gets one of the most dynamic players in the draft who had one of the most up and down seasons. He can blow you away with skill, but needs a lot of work away from the puck. With patience and more fortune in his development, Liljegren could provide Toronto with one of the top players in the draft -- or alternatively, a middling return.

Bettman leaning into the booing is by far the best Bettman.

Was just about to post this. He relishes in it now.

Bet Willie gave him the heads up.

Swedish teams seem be fairly amicable to renegotiating those deals for guys that have been drafted and have a legit shot of getting into the NHL that season.

Yeah. Nylander had a contract with MODO for his post-draft season too, but he and his agent terminated it like within a week of getting drafted. Then the Leafs signed him to an ELC, and loaned him to Modo with a provision saying he could be recalled by a certain date.

And of course, there's a good chance there's a bunch of Swedes on the Marlies next season in Borgman, Rosen, Grundstrom, Johnsson, Timashov, and Lindberg. Would make the transition to North America significantly easier on him.
