Default Akil Thomas

Just read on twitter that Akil Thomas is joining Rod Mawhood's radio show live from the draft this Sunday.

Would like to conduct a poll on here but not sure how do it.

1) Will Akil be taken in the first round

2) Will Akil be taken in the second round

Maybe someone can set it up

I'd be shocked to see him slip out of the first round.

I think that Akil has worked very hard and deserves to keep his first round ranking. He will be even better next year for the Ice Dogs when he is getting monitored by his NHL team and takes a leadership role right here in St.Catharines. Not sure when or even if Bruder and McPherson will be drafted but they too have worked hard and deserve some recognition. Go Dogs Go

As a Leaf hater I am concerned the Leafs might take him. Ugh.

I guess it would sell some ID tickets as some out of town Leaf fans might want to come down here and see him.

As a Leaf fan I would be thrilled to finally bring an IceDog into the fold!! Thomas would look so, so good in a Blue and White sweater!! For having a coveted 1st Round pick so late, what a reward to be able to pick Akil Thomas!
Good luck Akil, you earned it!

As it sits right now, I don’t think Thomas got taken in the1st round. Unfortunately, Akil did not have a great year this past season. We’ll have to see if somebody ‘takes a flyer’ on him tomorrow. A couple of surprises in Round 1, but mostly it went exactly to script.

A few notable players (S. Noel, B. Wilde, R. McLeod and J.McIsaac) who were projected by many to be drafted higher than Thomas in the 1st round were not drafted on day one.

An interesting side note to the 1st round of the NHL Entry Draft. 14 defenseman drafted - 7 of them where under 6.00 tall.
<>Q. HUGHES D USA 5' 9"
<>A. BOQVIST D SWE 5' 11"
<>T. SMITH D CAN 5' 10"
<>R. MERKLEY D CAN 5' 11"
<>N. BEAUDIN D CAN 5' 10"
