This draft could be summed up simply as в Джадд Брэкетт мы верим. Also known as, using the Bomber's highly paid Russian translator, Google - "In Brackett we Trust". Yurov, Haight and Lorenz were all taken from Brackett's list (Yurov was ranked 9th on the Wild's draft list, with Ohgren ranked either 10 or 11 based on NHL Inside Access). Bombers went with two Russians in the first two picks, knowing full well they may never come to the NHL.

Bombers GM will not spend much time this year describing their prospects. Why? Because he hasn't met any of them due to country borders getting closed and have only Zoom chatted with each for 1 min.

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 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.
