Coming into the 2015 NHL Draft the Minnesota Wild‘s prospect pool was one of the league’s weakest thanks to a combination of graduations, misses at the 2011 NHL draft, bewildering picks in other recent draft classes, valuable picks (especially the 2013 first-rounder) sent away for established players, and lack of late-round successes lately. The team needs to win more than one playoff round to justify such costly gambles, but it seemed to readjust its prospect development strategy for this draft. Moving away from drafting players with limited ability and upside is a major step in the right direction.

The Montreal Canadiens went to the 2015 NHL Draft with five picks, and selected near the end of each round. The only exception was the team’s fifth round pick, acquired when they traded Daniel Briere to Colorado for P.A. Parenteau. General Manager Marc Bergevin was inactive on the trade front, and held on to all of his picks—selecting when his turn came up. Read more»
