It's Monday, so that means I'm back with the updated Bruins pick position in rounds 1-2 for the 2010 draft if the season ended today. As always, I am not taking the lottery into account.
The Carolina Hurricanes have been absolutely putrid of late, and Toronto will overtake them in the standings soon if the 'Canes continue to redefine the term "underachievers." It's hard to fathom after watching Carolina this season that this is the team who knocked the Bruins out of the playoffs last spring.
OK, onto the picks:
1st (Toronto- 6 points)
12th (Boston- 13 points*)
38th (Tampa Bay- 12 points)
Islanders, Predators, Red Wings tie Boston in points, but gain higher draft position on tie-breakers. Flyers also have 13 points, but Boston has tie-breaker.
And just a friendly reminder- Boston's third-round selection was traded to Buffalo for Daniel Paille, who's done a pretty good job on that line with Blake Wheeler and Vladimir Sobotka.
