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

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

what started as 4 picks eventually turned into 10 picks and Thrashers got to swing for the fences!
Klim Kostin - The next Malkin? Plenty of red flags but still walked away with the #1 European skater ranking
Ivan Lodnia - 56 pts in 66 games on a stacked Erie Otters team. Will see prime time next year as first line center to show what he's got
Max Gildon - Has all the physical tools, uber high ceiling if he can put it all together... boom or bust prospect

Thrashers entered the 2016 draft with the most picks in franchise history. With a weak goalie pipeline, the goal was to add more goalies through the additional picks - hopefully some will pan out.... GM Lau managed to snatch every player he gunned for except The Professional Russian, Dmitry Sokolov - may he gain 50 pounds of fat and lose his already low work ethic
#14 Kieffer Bellows - 23GP 16G 16A for the USNTDP; 62GP 50G 31A for the US National U18 Team .... a power foreward who can score and hits just as hard

Armed with the 5th overall pick, the Thrashers quickly cemented their future defense. Fans can look forward to Hanifin being paired with former lottery pick Adam Larsson, who quickly reclaimed his confidence after escaping the mismanagement of the Bullies franchise.
The rest of the Thrashers' picks were spread out amongst the later rounds, and GM Lau had to make do with selections of numerous boom/bust prospects to address the greatest organizational needs at the moment - scoring top 6 wingers
