"209. WASHINGTON -- NO PICK, INELIGIBLE CLAIM"
Anyone knows what is this is all about?
Supposedly the Caps picked someone who's birthday made them ineligible.
They broke the draft...
Didn't they do this same thing with Ovechkin? Tried drafting him in the 9th round the year before they eventually took him 1st?
That was the Panthers... Trying to use the leap year as a basis saying he was actually onld enough to be drafted.
It'll more than likely be changed and the pick will stand.
