Not considering trades...in my crazy world this is how I see things going 1. Washington Capitals - LW Alexander Ovechkin Most complete player in the draft...the best prospect since blah blah 2. Pittsburgh Penguins - C Evgeni Malkin Uncontested No. 2 blah blah even though I like his upside better than Ovechkin (gasp) 3. Chicago Blackhawks - RW Lauri Tukonen Hawks looking to pair him up with Teemu to form a great one-two Finnish punch on their top line of the future. 4. Columbus Blue Jackets - D Cam Barker They got the offense, they got the goaltender, and they have the potential franchise defenseman...why not add another? Barker gives CBus a bigtime defenisve duo in the future. 5. Phoenix Coyotes - G Marek Schwarz They have LeNeveu, a great prospect...but they need the depth and happily grab the highest rated goaltender on the board. 6. New York Rangers - LW Andrew Ladd The rebuild started in the spring but they get the centerpiece for the forwards here. They see a lil Nash in Andy. 7. Florida Panthers - RW Drew Stafford This is now Iron Mike's team and he is looking to build a tough line with the likes of Stewart, Horton, and Stafford...shiver 8. Carolina Hurricanes - C Rostislav Olesz Amazed he fell this far, the 'Canes rush to the podium to select this guy. Great fit for the system and great combo with Staal. 9. Anaheim Mighty Ducks - C Robbie Schremp Not believing the character issue hype, the Ducks get their franchise player. Adds to the already awesome duo of Chistov and Getzlaf. 10. Atlanta Thrashers - RW Alexander Radulov Tempted at grabbing defense here but they know high flying offense will put butts in the seats and there is few better than Radulov in this draft. 11. Los Angeles Kings - D Boris Valabik They wanted Schwarz and thought he could fall in their laps but decide to grab the huge defenseman to add him to the envious collection of defensemen that include Grebeshkov and Gleason. 12. Minnesota Wild - G Alvaro Montoya Surprised he fell past LA, Minnesota goes the way of the 'Yotes and adds a fine goaltending prospect to go with Josh Harding. 13. Buffalo Sabres - D Ladislav Smid They wanted a big defenseman and they get one in Smid. 14. Edmonton Oilers - C Kyle Chipchura The Oilers get their next Todd Marchant but with hopes of more offense. 15. Nashville Predators - C Wojtek Wolski Looking for a center, they have this guy rated high on their board I would think. They hope he settles in with Legwand for a nice center combo. 16. New York Islanders - D AJ Thelen They need their bluechipper on defense and they find one with AJ. Milbury wont even think of trading this guy. 17. St. Louis Blues - RW Enver Lisin They see that speed is now king in the NHL with the likes of Tampa Bay, Calgary, and San Jose running the playoffs so they are quick to add this guy with the hope his offense develops and he becomes their go-to guy. 18. Montreal Canadiens - D Andrej Meszaros Always looking to build to an impressive stable of young defensemen, the Habs snatch up one of the top 5 defenseman in the draft. 19. Calgary Flames - LW Alex Picard Picard at 19?!! That's what Sutter is thinking and grabs the guy who he'd love to have in his system. Not the typical BBF-player but he will mold him into one. 20. Dallas Stars - LW Roman Voloshenko They want an offensive winger and thats what they are gettin with Roman. 21. Colorado Avalanche - C Petteri Nokelainen Where to start? Well, finding someone to replace Foppa is a start. They'll groom Petteri to be that guy. 22. New Jersey Devils - LW Lauri Korpikoski They love the way this kid jumped up in the rankings and hope his development continues to skyrocket. 23. Ottawa Senators - C Travis Zajac Another guy who has seen his stock rise up. The Sens add him to the forward core and envision him a good no. 2 behind Spezza. 24. New York Rangers - C Jakub Sindel The forward rebuild doesn't end at Ladd as they figure Sindel to play a prominent role on the team in the future. 25. Edmonton Oilers - G Cory Schneider Theme of the draft...add to your goaltending depth. Schneider has the biggest upside of all goaltenders in the draft IMO. Oilers get themselves a steal here. 26. Vancouver Canucks - C David Bolland The Canucks want to get blue collar. Kesler and Bolland are a part of the new 'Nucks that will try to outwork their opponents. They don't mind his offensive upside either. 27. Washington Capitals - C Bruce Graham Oh how I would love for him to fall to the Sharks but the Caps have other plans. They grab the big man with thoughts of a deadly first line with the likes of the uber-skilled Ovechkin and the huge Graham. 28. San Jose Sharks - RW Viktor Alexandrov They watch as many of the top guys on their board get picked off moments before they pick (watching Graham get picked one spot ahead really hurts) but they do not fret because the super skilled Alexandrov is also high on their board. He is an element that they would like to add to the team while he also possesses qualities they expect from all Shark players. 29. Washington Capitals - D Kirill Lyamin They go offense with their first two 1st rounders. This time they add the big Russian to rebuild a defense that is looking already solid with the likes of Eminger and Morrisonn. 30. Tampa Bay Lightning - G Devan Dubnyk A match made in heaven. Bolts need a goaltender of the future and Devan goes to a young team already on top. His size is impressive and he should become a star.
