The Bruins did not suffer the same fate as the Celtics did twice before them, and officially landed the No. 2 pick in June’s NHL Draft on Tuesday night. The lottery balls fell all according to plan, as the B’s were slated to the land the No. 2 pick if there were no lottery anyway, all thanks to Toronto’s awful season. The Bruins acquired this No. 2 pick, a second rounder, and a 2011 first rounder for Phil Kessel before last season. At the time, the trade seemed questionable, but now it appears the Bruins will be able to draft a player that’s younger and better than Kessel.
The top two players available are center Tyler Seguin and left winger Taylor Hall, and if you trust the scouts, these two players are cant-miss prospects. The Oilers, who won the first pick, are said to need a center and are interested in Seguin, which would the Bruins with Hall, the top winger available.
