    It seems that the stars are not going to sign Vagner. Guy charbonneau who is a Dallas assistant GM made some statements about him that suggested they were not happy with his development. My understanding is that they will get the 56th pick in this draft. Any other first rounders from that year that are unlikely to be signed that might affect the draft order?

    As an aside with two fourths I would not be suprised if they redrafted Vagner there.

    The Rangers will most likely not sign R.J. Umberger, electing to take the 46th overall pick in the draft instead.

    haha you people are way too quick to label a hockey player a "head case"...Umberger certainly isn't---Burke played games with him and left him inelligble to play at OSU and with out a FAIR contract! Then he was traded to the Rangers at the deadline---I honestly don't believe they ever had intent on signing him, and are content with the comp pick. I aslo believe RJ will sign with Pittsburgh but we will see--I am still in the process of trying to convince him how nice it is to live on Long Island :)

    Kings are not likely to sign Dave Steckel, but that would be a comp pick in next year's draft.

    I need not intend to call him a head case. Was just wondering. I said I would love to have him as a Star

    Not sure if he's so much a head case as he is full of himself.

    Rumor is that Rangers Brass were not impressed with his workouts enough to pay him top dollar. Also spouted off in the press about giving Pittsburgh a "hometown discount".

    Has Steckel graduated already? As a college player, they don't have to be signed until after graduation.

    How do they determine where the comp picks are? Is it a certain number of picks back of where the specific player was selected?

    I think it's 30 picks later then the spot they were picked. For instance, if Columbus never signed Rick Nash, they would get the 31st pick in this draft

    Burke didnt play games with him, they wanted him to stay in school, he left early on his own will. He felt he could sign for the Max, Burke laughed.

    Daniel Paille(20th), Vagner and Johansson(28th) are the 3 1st rounders from the CHL who need to be signed by June 1st.

    Man, I really hope the Oilers are looking long and hard at picking up Umberger if he is to re-enter the draft!

    He won't be back in the draft... he'll be a free agent.

    Is Paille worth signing where would he go if he reenters? Are there any possible reentries that would go in the first three rounds

    I would expect Paille and Johansson to be signed, and I would expect either of them to be re-drafted in the 1st 3 rounds if they weren't.
