Thrashers continue trend of drafting players too small for their own good
#7 - Marco Rossi. 120 pts in 56 games, OHL's Most Outstanding Player of the Year, OHL's top scorer, Coaches' Poll: eastern conference smartest player, best playmaker, best shootout scorer, #2 best faceoffs, #2 best defensive forward, #3 best penalty killer... the kid has it all. Brayden Point was so good for the Thrashers, GM Lau just had to draft himself another one

For the first time in many years, Bombers defied many norms: a) Traded up giving up quantifiable overall value in the process; b) Owned barely any draft picks; c) Did very little research given zero-time available; and d) Picked players that aren't best player available and instead fell into the trap of drafting for positional/ role needs.
The team is proud to introduce the following tradeable commodity assets (aka fresh meat, or shiny new toy) to the fans :

Bombers prospect development over time, using NHL-equivalent points to allow comparison between different leagues and age.
Will be updated periodically.

alright, finally getting around to do a summary of my draft and offer some top notch highly professional analysis!
Thrashers missed the 2019 playoffs due to whiffing on #10thlastplace. Finishing one spot out of the playoffs. They nonetheless achieved the objective of joining (and to an extent - winning) the draft lottery

Bombers went into this draft expecting to pick all players with a Z in their name. Zegras - check. Podkolzin - check. The team was intending on picking Moritz, but Boldy really threw a wrench in the team plan. Unlike other years where the team usually have a million picks, the team got lazy and consolidated its pick to just 3 picks this year. Fans resent the fact that the GM was on vacation and shirked his scouting duties directly in advance of the draft.
