    3. Chicago - Johnathan Toews
    4. Washington - Jordan Staal

    6. Columbus - Peter Mueller
    7. NY Islanders - Derek Brassard
    8. Phoenix - Michael Frolik
    9. Minnesota - Kyle Okposo
    10. Florida - Bryan Little
    11. Los Angeles - James Sheppard
    12. Atlanta - Bobby Sanguinetti

    Looks like the conventional wisdom except I see Frolik falling behind Okposo. Its funny, every draft scenario so far seems to have Okposo going to the Wild, is there a conspiracy there?

    That was actually one of the big reasons we picked him (I don't think I did, but a lot did)

    I was debating between Joenssu and Helenius, to be honest. I chose the goaltender.

    I honestly thought Brassard would fall to the Wild and that they'd pick him. I picked Tlusty to go to the Isles, as he's a fast finishing winger with a rising stock.

    But I was the only one who had that sentiment.

    I just don't see why so many people think the Thrashers will take a defenseman. C is the biggest weakness in their farm system, the D is actually quite deep.

    Don't like the Florida pick. Our first priority is D this year so Williams is the guy Florida might want.

    I think people forget that nowadays teams go by who they think is the best player available, no matter what positoon they play

    And Little isn't the BPA available :D. Teams will still draft by needs if they have too, and Florida do. We have no top 4 potential Dman in the system, and we really need a physical pairing for Bouwmeester down the line.

    If Mueller or Backstrom don't fall down to the Islanders #7 spot i rather see them take Kyle Okposo or Nigel Williams

    Having seen Vishnevsky play in a handful of games in the Q this year, I must I would be rather disappointed with him as Montreal's 16th overall pick. He does have wheels and there's no denying that he could make a great offensive d-man, but I thought he was flat out brutal defensively in many situations.

    Devils drafted a goalie in the second round of 2005. Can't see them taking a goalie in this year's first. At least I hope they don't.

    Yep, even if I really like Leland Irving... sleeper pick. I would be happy if NJ grabed him in the 2nd round though, even if I don't think he's going to fall until that. :)

    i think montreal would be better off taking TY WISHART rather than taking Ivan Vishnevsky

  24. Damn, if Ty Wishart falls to 19, I have a hard time believeing that Clarke stands pat and doesn't make a move for him.

    Ty's been dropping like a ton of bricks. I think he might fall to Philly's pick and possibly even out of the first round.
