    Strange, you didn't get mad that he gave you a goalie...

    Looks good, Smid might go a bit higher but that's all that I see wrong..

    good from Rangers POV
     
  6. Well with Radulov, Stafford, Thelen, and Schremp off the board, it's open for debate what the Wild will do...I think they might go goalie or make a huge and very interesting pick.

    I think CBJ are more likely to take Ladd over Olesz.

    Anaheim will/should take Thelen if he's available.

    The Caps will take Ovechkin, Fransson, and Sindel and run.

    Yup. That's what I thought too. That's a good way to rebuild a franchise. Ovechkin - Sindel - Semin :bow:

    The Ducks will take Thelen if he is still available or look at taking Meszaros, Smid or Valabik or trading back a few spots to take one of them.

    Stafford does not seem to have first line potential so we will not use the 9th overall pick on him. He does not fit a need of the organization.

    Defense is our big need.

    I won't say that our defense doesn't need some repair, but I think the lack of a power forward is our biggest shortcoming. Stafford versus Thelen is a tough call. In fact, I'm not convinced Thelen is a better selection than Meszaros, who more than held his own with the big boys at the World Championships (not the WJCs). Although unlikely, somebody like Ladd could fall or we could "trade up" to get him. Somebody like Tukonen might fall, too.

    I'm not opposed to Thelen. I'm just not sure that he's the obvious choice at #9 that everyone seems to think he is.

    Finally, I'm not sure that drafting one of the premier goalies (Schwarz or Montoya) is such a bad idea. You never can have too much quality goaltending.
