DISCLAIMER:This is just a summary on my thoughts of each draft pick from the first round of s11 draft as well as the big noteworthy picks of the later few rounds. You may not agree or you may think i'm spot on. Just felt like putting my thoughts out dere for yall
1st overall - nikka p - LAHC
Plain and simple strategy on this pick: get the absolute most talented player available in the draft. Whether u love him or hate him nikka p remains a massive talent and a huge asset to any team. Problems arose for LAHC however, when nikka requested a trade. Honestly, I can't blame LAHC for doing what most teams would do with the pick, but it didnt work nicely for them, and the team has more or less crumbled ever since trading him, while the Isles have enjoyed his talents thoroughly.
2nd overall - MSL - Zyklon Bees
Another pick that made sense at the time but went horribly horribly wrong for the team involved. MSL is a fantastic player, but his imminent retirement from the league forced the Bees to trade him for .CDHL. and a very weak Squares 1st, far less than his value as a player, but an unavoidable loss due to his departure.
3rd overall - Fruit - Brookly Bosses
This pick didnt come as much of a surprise either. Froot is a great player anywhere in the 1st round, and lightning was willing to pick him up decently early. However, his west coast ping made it difficult for him to really shine for the bosses, and he has been traded to the Bobcats who hope he can step it up for them instead.
4th overall - StaR - New York Costanzas
This is the first pick of the draft that has remained on the team which draft him. StaR has had a decidely lackluster season so far, playing only 3 games and notching a single assist, no goals, and a -5 differential. There's still plenty of time left in the season though, and with the recent addition of Rev from waivers, the Costanzas have every tool they need to get into playoff position, and StaR can be key to them doing so.
5th overall - Nigger Jokes - Brooklyn Bosses
A decent pick at this spot for brooklyn, Lightning clearly stuck to the gameplan of picking up a balance of dedicated and skilled players, but NJ didn't produce well for the bosses, picking up his points in their one good game on the season, but coming away with a -3 differential before being traded alongside fruit to the bobcats, where the two of them are confident in rekindling their season and making a serious run at the alpha championship. For the bosses though? The pick didn't work for them.
6th overall - PK - London Silly Nannies
This was arguably the first pick that went perfectly. PK was going to be leavin...
