Guess I'm just funny that way, find it terribly entertaining to watch old drafts in hindsight. Great stuff so far: "A player that Danny Heatley is being compared to is Tim Kerr". Tim Kerr? Mr. 8 feet who only scored from the slot? I don't see *any* resemblance whatsoever. Columbus just thanked Calgary (the hosting team) for supplying Brad Moran. The guy was a great scorer in junior, why hasn't Columbus given the guy a shot at the NHL level? He's been pretty darn good in the AHL for them, and they need scorers. "It's taken some time to turn the corner, but you've got some good offensive players coming up in the system, the future must look pretty bright for Tampa Bay." Yup, I'd say so. "Many scouts consider Nikita Alexeev the best player in this draft." Lanny McDonald unveils the Flames new uniform. "New look, new attitude, new direction." Yup, dead on Lanny. Buffalo reaches for Artem Kryukov at #15, Hockey News has him at #60. Looks like HN was correct, still 0 games played. "Montreal is proud to select Marian, er, Marcel Hossa". Heh, nice freudian slip there. Barry Fraser makes his last pick for the Edmonton Oilers. Considering his draft history, it's amazing he lasted this long. His swan song? Alexei Mikhnov, with 0 GP so far. Looks like he probably scored another bust for his resume. Brian Burke just selected Nathan Smith. Ugh. Hated the pick at the time, still do. Hockey News ranking #40, picked #23. Hockey News > Brian Burke. Wings go off the board to draft Niklas Kronwall at #29, Hockey News has him 47th. Once again, THN seems to have been more correct in their assessment, though Kronwall finally played some games in the league this year. "There's gotta be some question marks about Roman Turek, when next year's playoffs roll around, people are still going to be asking 'Can he be the guy?'"
