    Who would you guys pick from this yrs crop in a keeper draft?(Goalies and D-men count too). Hypothetically you have the number 3, 7 and 10 pick...who are you looking to nab?? My top 10 would be in order...
    1.AO
    2.Malkin
    3.Schremp
    4.Tukonen
    5.Ladd
    6.Radulov
    7.Montoya

    we just did a draft in my FHL and this is how the top 10 shook down:
    1. Ovechkin
    2. Malkin
    3. Ladd
    4. Montoya
    5. Barker
    6. Schwarz
    7. Thelen
    8. Tukonen
    9. Schremp
    10. Smid

    Obviously people took some players due to a certain positional need... i myself owned a lot of picks in the top 10 (6,8,9,10) - i was pretty stoked to come away with Schwarz, Tukonen, Schremp and Smid :D

    Don't forget Olesz, he's definitely a top 10 guy.

    Assuming AO and Malkin are gone, I'd take Barker at #3. He'll generate points and PIM's down the line, and will be very valuable.

    Ladd, Tukonen, Olesz, Picard, Stafford and Radulov are all options from 7 to 10, and I'd prioritize them in that order.

    I wouldn't touch Schremp in the top 10.

    I guess it would depend on how your keeper league works in terms of your draft picks. Are you able to keep them for a certain number of years in like a minor league system and then call them up? How long do you have before you have to make a decision as to whether or not give them a roster spot? I have seen leagues where there is minor league and you are given 3 years for forwards, 4 for D men, and 5 for goaltenders. By that year you have to either put that player in your active roster or cut them loose. Using that criteria, you obviously want to draft players who you feel WILL be in the NHL by that time. My top 10 would look like this...

    1 AO
    2 Malkin
    3 Tukonen
    4 Schwarz
    5 Ladd
    6 Montoya
    7 Schremp
    8 Radulov
    9 Olesz
    10 Picard
