NHL Draft Day Two GDT

Top of the morning, Blues fans. Busy day for the Blues with like 20 dozen draft picks (rough estimation) today after zero in the first round. But that's OK for one simple reason: Chris Stewart. It doesn't matter that a new 18-year-old who won't see The Show for two to three years didn't join the fold last night. Just remember, that was the price for getting the bull in a china shop Stewart AND his buddy Kevin Shattenkirk. When Stewart is filling the net and Shatty is patrolling the blue line on the power play, you'll forget about an absolute snoozefest of a first round from a St. Louis perspective. 

So, we now go to the second round, the money round for the Blues. If they're going to package a couple second rounders for a player, now is the time because the next two rounds is where they have the surplus. The coverage is expected to start at 10 a.m. CDT on the NHL Network. I know if you go to the Blues' site they have audio. The NHL Network site may have some streaming video. You might try there if you don't have it on your television. 

Below is the Prospect Department's preview for today. The Blues have three selections in the next sixteen picks -- 32nd overall, 41st overall, and 46th overall. Here is how your GTPD ranks the players still left on the board:

We'll try to get some posts up about each player the Blues draft as it happens. Some might get delayed. But that'swhen it happens. Otherwise, this is the thread for the day. Settle in, watch some guys you've never heard of get announced and make some dick jokes or something. You know what to do around here.
