2nd Round Antics

No trades today, I guess.

But that's okay, because we drafted big Swedish winger Carl Klingberg, who a lot of people expected to go in the 1st round. In his Twitter feed the Falconer says he's not exactly what we need. I have no idea. Plays like a gritty Canadian forward, compares himself to Tomas Holmstrom. I hope that turns out to be reasonably accurate...Some say he's a bit like Johan Franzen.

We also drafted forward Jeremy Morin, from the US development program. Being American he's known Zach Bogosian since they were little kids, and they're friends HOORAY! Said to be a pure goal-scorer, and the 2nd best sniper in the draft. WOOOOO

Thrashers TV video, all about it, here. Quite excited about Morin, me.

I really like our 2nd rounders. I like Klingberg, seems like a fun guy. Toby and him can go out carousing together.
