I'm here a day late to update the Bruins draft picks for 2010.
Yesterday wasn't so hot for the tank nation. The B's got manhandled at home by the surging Ottawa Senators who got a natural hat trick from captain Daniel Alfredsson, who's scored 4 goals in 2 games since returning from injury.
The Toronto Maple Leafs won on the road against Nashville after blowing a three-goal lead. Phil Kessel was the hero, scoring the game-winner with a little over five minutes remaining to take a 4-3 win. Carolina lost to Tampa Bay, which hurt Boston's second-round pick status, Edmonton got blown out by Colorado in a 6-0 loss. Minnesota also lost.
Here are the picks for 2010 if the season ended today (not taking the April 13 lottery into effect):
3rd overall- Toronto (43 points; 17-24-9)
17th overall- Boston (54 points; 23-17-8)
33rd overall- Toronto
35th overall- Tampa Bay (48 points; 19-19-10)
47th overall- Boston
None- Boston pick traded to Buffalo for Daniel Paille
91st overall- Carolina (35 points; 14-27-7)
*107th overall- Boston
*(Conditional pick for Paille; terms to be confirmed, but 16 goals by Paille gives Buffalo Boston's 4th-round pick in addition to the 3rd)
