    The Caps got Nashville's pick. It looks like it will fall 20-25. The Caps seem likely to draft a forward. I looked back at Cup4Wings 3 round Mock and considered 5 picks above and below. 15-25 Range. The names that interest me are RW Chris Stewart (doubt he is there) RW Kyle Okposo RW Jese Joenesuu C Cory Emmerton C Ben Maxwell. Any chance Little, Vasyunov or Nigel Williams drop here? Anyone else worth looking at?

    Someone said they had him going at 37? Basically said he didn't like him. I think he is this years Brule. Little and Staal or Kessel would be sweet for the Caps. Kessel an AO would be a thing of beauty.

    Capitals may look at goaltender Jonathan Bernier of Lewiston or another in Leland Irving with that late second pick.

    I have to imagine they're sky high on Williams who I am as well and would fit the type of defenseman they have been bringing in lately....with all the seconds they have, I fully expect the Capitals to make a move up on the draft board to any team willing to trade down with a mid 1st.

    They did it in 02 with great results, I expect the same in 06.

    Little will be gone by top 10 im pretty sure. Some that could be around that would be of interest:

    Alex Vasyunov
    Jesse Joensu
    Ben Shuttron
    Ty Wishart
    Ben Maxwell
    Mitch Fadden

    X-Couple of follow ups. The Caps seem to prefer large goalies and Bernier is a smaller guy. Reto Berra is a big guy and I think they will look strongly at him. What's your take on him? Also, what do you think of Billy Sauer? Where should he go?

    I would love to get Nigel Williams but I don't believe the priorities are there this year. The Caps will likely draft C, C, RW, G, G. I could see them taking Nigel if he is there though.

    It is not so easy to compare. Do you honestly think there is a huge difference? This year the top talent seems to be at Center and Wing. That fits our needs.

    Caps will take Ryan White with that late 1st from Nashville. They love guys from out west and White would be a good fit

    Has someone seen Vasyunov play? What type of player is he?
    I'm wondering if he has much upside to his game...

    Agreed. It will all depend on individual preferences of the teams, of course. I don't know who thought Setoguchi would go top-10 either. But trying to evaluate Little objectively, he seems to have a good mix of attributes that might make him a candidate to drop in the draft order relative to his rankings. Start with size, of course. Continue with a lack of visibly impressive physical skills... he isn't fast, his shot is deceptively good but still not especially heavy, he competes but you couldn't really say he brings a physical game... that sort of thing. Then put in his later birth date. I could EASILY see him falling out of the top-10. And further, depending on how the preferences of the teams stack up. Past top-20 would still be a major stretch though, so it's not like he's going to be an option for that NAS pick.

    (Mind you, as much as I'd argue that Little is a good candidate to fall out of the top-10, I also think any NHL GMs who let that happen are nuts. He'd be solidly in my own top-10, no problem).

    Although it will never go exactly like this, let's assume for now a "consensus" top 18 of:
    Kessel
    Toews
    Frolik
    Backstrom
    Tlusty
    Johnson
    Williams
    Okposo
    Bernier
    Brassard
    Sheppard
    Wishart
    Mueller
    Staal
    Sanguinetti
    Stewart
    Foligno
    Little
    (note that this is not meant to be in order- this is a league by league list)
    Any players not on this list would clearly be very good bets for 20-25.

    Good Choice. Might as well go for a homerun pick.

    A player who could move into the later half of the 1st round is Michael Grabner from Spokane. He hasnt been ranked high in the rankings but had a really good prospects game and has been on a tear since that game. He is a player who could really turn into a steal with the potential I see in him.
