    Are we likely to see many trades in the first round of this year's draft?
    Which teams (in the top 12, say) are most likely to trade down?
    What sort of cost would be assoiciated with moving up 5 to 10 spots in this year's draft?

    Requisite homer question: Would Schneider (#38THN prospect) and the Canucks 1st (#22?) have any chance at a top 10 pick?

    I don't know for your homer quetion, but from what I know about the habs, they always tend to have one guy they target and he is often not really hyped by other teams. So they often trade down once or twice to accumulate picks in other rounds and still get their players. I like that :) So perhaps the 12th pick could be available...

    but yet I feel they might stay there cause it looks like there is 12-15 players who are very interesting and then it starts falling a little.

    Kings might trade down if they can get some defensive help or another young asset in the process. If a guy like McDonagh or Ellerby is going to be available at 10-15, I could see them dropping down there.
     
  4. Sens need to pick up a good local boy in Logan Couture.

    Your pick will not be the 22d. It will either be 24th or 25th, depending if San Jose comes back or not (24th if San Jose wins that series).

    Philadelphia might consider moving, I doubt it would be for a Spect and a pick though, it would probably have to include a young proven player.

    Unless they changed something (and they very well could have), the draft order is based on regular season points, with the exception that the Stanley Cup winner is last at 30.

    Not likely, unless they move up. As it stands, after the Sens lose to Buffalo in the next round, they'll probably be drafting 27th overall. Couture won't make it past the top 15, and maybe not even the top 10.

    I heard that canadiens was really high on VanRiemsdyk so I think they'll trade up if possible more then trading down. I think Shattenkirk is their guy at 12 so i doubt they trade down since he'll most likely go around there.
     
  11. Exactly so i was wondering what a 5-10 pick in the draft would cost ;)
     
  12. Probably quite a bit. It wouldn't be cost-effective for Ottawa, IMO.

    I doubt the oilers will move down but they might move their 2nd pick (36th overall) down for a 3rd pick + something else. Aparently they are high on riley nash and he isnt projected to even go in the 2nd round let alone early 2nd. They might be looking to move up though.

    How about the NYI 1st + ANA 1st for Boston's first?

    Every year it costs a lot to move up into the top 10.

    I hope the Leafs grab Logan Couture. Then I will forgive JFJ for signing McCabe. ;)

    considering how wide open this draft is, I think we could see alot of pick movement, maybe not in the top 10, but in the 10-60 range. If you think you can grab a top 15 talent at 25, then why not move down?
     
  16. i guess they won't draft Shattenkirk since you think they'll draft him, they always draft a player that no one thinks they're gonna draft.

    in 2003 i was hoping they're gonna draft Zach Parisé (only because his dad is québécois) but they drafted Andrei Kostsystyn instead which i never heard about before the draft.

    in 2005 i was hoping they would draft Benoît Pouliot, Gilbert Brûlé or Anze Kopitar. Pouliot got drafted by Minnesota just before they picks. Brûlé and Kopitar was still availlable but they drafted Corey Price, a goalie, i'm sure no one thought they was gonna draft him.

    in 2006 i was thinking they're gonna draft a dman, i had some names i thought they would draft (Wishart, Mitera, and a russian dman, i forgot his name) but i never thought about Fischer.

    so i'm sure they're gonna draft someone that no one expect them to draft. :D

    PHI might take that deal: "Would Schneider (#38THN prospect) and the Canucks 1st (#22?)"

    PHI would trade the 2nd overall or trade down based on the return.

    Rumors I have heard:

    Afinogenov from BUF for 2nd overall (frees up cap to re-sign Drury or Briere or both)
    Brad Richards from TB
    Ales Hemsky from EDM (Philly adds something)
    Robyn Regehr from CALG
    Zidlicky fromm NASH

    Hemsky is untouchable. Unless there was a guy like Ovechkin or Crosby coming back the other way, Lowe wouldn't dare move Hemsky. It would take that kind of a massive overpayment.

    regardless of whether hemsky is an "untouchable" or not (im not here to debate that is all i mean by that btw) but why would edmonton make that trade? i mean... they DO already have 3 first round picks this year.. what would the point be in trading for yet another 1st rounder this year?

    I'd like for Dallas to have a high first rounder.....they haven't picked higher than 24th in like 10 years, I think. As of now Dallas doesn't have a 1st in either 07 or 08, so a trade would be nice.

    Look for Dallas to play it conservative like they always do. I expect them to trade down their highest pick....a 3rd rounder, for a 4th round pick and a young medical trainer with A LOT of potential.

    No a trade wouldn't be that good for a draft pick.

    They have a second rounder(Wild's 2nd rounder).

    You make it seam like the Stars have never drafted a NHL player with any pick.

    Wah, wah. You guys should strive to have an organization like Columbus. Then you'll get all the early picks you can handle.;)
