    I'm a Penguins fan, and I realize that we are very bad, but I have a bad feeling that we are not going to win the draft lottery. My question is, how much better is Ovechkin than Malkin, who I assume most would consider the number 2 prospect this year? Will the Pens still be getting a potential franchise forward with him or even Olesz, or should I consider anything but that #1 overall pick a disappointment? Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

    "Any" input?

    OK, it's important that you still suck next year to maximise your chances to get Sid!

    He's alot better. He's realistically an All-Star player who can step right in. Everyone else in this draft will need a few years to develop and may be good enough to play on the first line but will likely fall short of All-Star calibre.

    p.s. Go watch a Wilkes-Barrie game it'll make you feel better. :rolly:

    Well, we might not need to suck next year if there is no next year. We'll have the best odds in next years lottery without even playing a game. Just imagine if we win the lottery this year and next. Ovechkin, Crosby, Fleury, Welch, and Whitney. One can dream... :rolly:

    Who recalls the Caps-Pens rivalries through the late 80s, 90s, and until just recently?

    We dance again!

    If the flightless foul win the draft lottery, I will swallow my own tongue.

    Ovechkin to DC. :rolly:

    I personally think the hype on Ovechkin is dwindling as the gap between he and Malkin closes. Ovechkin may be ready for the NHL next year, but I doubt even that, let alone being able to step in and be an all-star. The kid probably doesn't even speak English yet.

    Let me clear that up. He will step in and play next year and will become an All-Star calibre player a few years later like Kovalchuk (I don't see him having as high a top end). Thats how my crystal ball sees it anyway.
