i justed wanted to look back at the first round of the 05 draft an give some comments on some of the selections. because i feel some of the where pretty bad. any feedback would be nice because i will probably not be right one every one. 1. sidney crosby. nothing to say 2. bobby ryan. how could they pass on jack johnson they did not have pronger and niedermayer when they made this pick. 3. jack johnson. they where probably amazed by the facts that he was still available. 4. benoit pouliot. nice pick 5. carey price. i hate this pick. gilbert brule was still there and they did not take him i dont understand that 6. gilbert brule. steal!!!! 7. jack skille. another nice pick. 8. devin setoguchi. how could they take setoguchi over kopitar 9. brian lee. i like this pick. considerin the amazing defence the senators have they could afford to take a risk on lee who i think will be a homerun. 10. luc bourdon. very nice. ecspesialally now with jovanovski gone. bourdon will soon be ready for nhl action maybe even this season. 11. anze kopitar. another steal. 12. marc staal. i cant believe he dropped this far. the rangers have some quality defence prospects in staal and sanguinetti. 13. marek zagrapan. i see him as a little bit of a risk, but i hope this ends up as a good selection. 14. sasha pokulok. i dont now very much about him, but i think he whent too high. he could be good for the capitals dought. they need some defence that can shut the oponents down. 15. ryan o'marra. great pick. 16. alex bourret. i think this will be a homerun. just look at his development. http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/pdisplay.php3?pid=00070696 17. martin hanzal. ok pick. small risk, but mcardle or bergfors would have been better i think. 18. ryan parent. good pick should be solid. 19. jakub kindl. the red wings team needs some young talent. great pick. whent later then i would have thought. 20. kendall mcardle. nice pick. did also have to wait a little to long for him. 21. tuukka rask. great pick. 22. matt lashoff. ok pick. nice development this season. 23. niklas bergors. could be THE steal of the draft. 24. t.j. oshie. very nice pick. he had a great season with north dakota 25. andrew cogliano. i dont really now. i kind of wanted stoa on this one. 26. matt pelech. looks like a future bust. 27. joe finley. ok pick. caplitals sure was looking for defence on this draft. 28. matt niskanen. looks good. 29. steve downie. great pick. could be an amazing power forward 30. valdimir mihalik. i dont know. doesn't look to good.
