In my Hockey News article yesterda (found here), I dispense some basic advice for your playoff draft, as well as review some interesting stats from the last two postseasons.

It’s looking as though the third pick this summer, likely Jonathan Drouin, will go to Tampa Bay, Nashville or Carolina. I like Drouin better than Nathan MacKinnon in terms of fantasy hockey (not real hockey)… but if he goes to Nashville my interest in him slips a tad – from “extremely high” to “zero”. If Nashville drafts him, and I pick third overall in my keeper league, then I’d trade the pick and drop down in the draft.

Big points had by all last night if you owned a few Winnipeg Jets. Assuming your players include Gagnon, Meech, Wright and Stuart, that is. (don’t you hate that?)

Jhonas Enroth played for the fifth time in six games. Wow, is Ryan Miller ever gone this summer. Gone! Shame on the Buffalo fans who booed him on the weekend though. Not after what he’s done for this team.

As for Enroth – no, he won’t be the starter next year. The Sabres will bring someone in, like a Mike Smith or a trade that brings in Roberto Luongo or Jonas Hiller. I don’t think Enroth would be terrible, but I don’t think he’s ready and if the Sabres don’t look elsewhere, then it makes a statement that they are rebuilding in a big way. And I get the impression that this is more of a re-tool than a rebuild.

Mikhail Grigorenko got into the lineup and played 15:18, his second most of the season.

Tomas Vokoun picked up his 300th win in his 700th game Monday. His backup was Frozen Four star Eric Hartzell, who many believe should have won the Hobey
