All right, I had 45, then realized something dropped it to 44: 1/ Washington Capitals- Alexander Ovechkin 2/ Pittsburgh Penguins-Evengi Malkin 3/ Columbus Blue Jackets (from Chicago) - Cam Barker (Columbus trades the 4th overall, a 3rd round draft pick, and a forward to the Blackhawks for the 3rd overall) 4/ Chicago Blackhawks- Rostislav Olesz (Columbus trades the 4th overall, a 3rd round draft pick, and a forward to the Blackhawks for the 3rd overall) 5/ Phoenix Coyotes- Andrew Ladd 6/ New York Rangers- Robbie Schremp 7/ Florida Panthers- Lauri Tukonen 8/ Carolina Hurricanes- AJ Thelen 9/ Nashville Predators (from Anaheim Mighty Ducks)- Drew Stafford (Nashville trades their 1st overall (15th overall) , Kevin Klein + Libor Pivko to Anaheim for the 9th overall) 10/ Atlanta Thrashers- Mike Green 11/ Los Angeles Kings- Al Montoya 12/ Washington Capitals (from Minnesota Wild)- Wes O'Neill (Washington trades Detroit's 1st (30th overall) and Boston's 1st (27th overall), and the 33rd overall to Minnesota for their 12th overall and the 42nd overall) 13/ Tampa Bay Lightning (from Buffalo Sabres)- Marek Schwarz (Tampa Bay Lightning trade their 1st (29th overall), their 2nd, and Gerard DiCaire to the Buffalo Sabres for the 13th overall) 14/ Edmonton Oilers- Wojtech Wolski 15/ Anaheim Might Ducks (from Nashville Predators)- Kyle Chipchura (Nashville trades their 1st overall (15th overall) , Kevin Klein + Libor Pivko to Anaheim for the 9th overall) 16/ New York Islanders- Boris Valabik 17/ St. Louis Blues- Alexander Radulov 18/ Montreal Canadians- Adam Berti 19/ Calgary Flames- Alexander Picard 20/ Dallas Stars- Johan Fransson 21/ Colorado Avalanche- Roman Voloshenko 22/ New Jersey Devils- Jakub Sindel 23/ Edmonton Oilers- Devon Dubynk 24/ Vancouver Canucks- Enver Linsin 25/ Ottawa Senators- Lukas Kaspar 26/ New York Rangers- Ladislav Smid 27/ Minnesota Wild (from Washington Capitals)- David Bolland (Washington trades Detroit's 1st (30th overall) and Boston's 1st (27th overall), and the 33rd overall to Minnesota for their 12th overall and the 42rd overall) 28/ San Jose Sharks- Kirill Lyamin 29/ Buffalo Sabres (from Tampa Bay Lightning)- Oscar Hedman (Tampa Bay Lightning trade their 1st (29th overall), their 2nd, and Gerard DiCaire to the Buffalo Sabres for the 13th overall) 30/ Minnesota Wild (from Washington Capitals)- Sami Lepsito (Washington trades Detroit's 1st (30th overall) and Boston's 1st (27th overall), and the 33rd overall to Minnesota for their 12th overall and the 42nd overall) 31/ Pittsburgh Penguins- Travis Zajac 32/ Chicago Blackhawks- Vaclav Meidel 33/ Minnesota Wild (from Washington)- Blake Wheeler 34/ Dallas Stars- Mark Fristric 35/ Phoenix Coyotes- David Shantz 36/ New York Rangers- Carl Soderberg 37/ New York Rangers- Evan McGrath 38/ Carolina Hurricanes- Justin Peters 39/ Anaheim Mighty Ducks- Ryan Garlock 40/ Atlanta Thrashers- Mike Funk 41/ Chicago Blackhawks- Adam Pineault 42/ Washington Capitals (from Minnesota)- Andrew Meszaros 43/ Buffalo Sabres- Jeff Schultz 44/ Edmonton Oilers- Peter Pohl Reasons for the trades: Chicago trading with Columbus is about as reasonable as the Penguins moving down because they are in the division but Columbus fears Chicago taking Barker and moves up, they overpay but they finally get a franchise defenseman. Reason instead of moving down because Columbus won't get Holmqvist and a 1st rounder from Tampa Bay for the 4th overall and other reasonable offers. Nashville needs a center and Stafford is still on the board, I can see this because Anaheim gets an offensive defenseman (Nashville has loads of defenseman and they can pony up a defenseman) and still gets a center they need in Chipchura. Minnesota moving down, I think this is beneficial for both Minnesota and Washington. Minnesota might flip 2nd rounders but Minnesota moves way down the board for Washington to either secure Wolski or O'Neill, I'll go with Wolski. Minnesota still gets a couple good players and secures Wheeler (a bit of a reach there) and might pony up the 73rd overall. Tampa Bay moves up to grab Schwarz. They leapfrog Edmonton securing a franchise goaltender. They will have to give something else up probably to force Buffalo to go down to almost the last pick overall in the draft and they cough up a 2nd. What can Tampa Bay give? That's basically it, I'm having a bit of a problem with the picks 15-40 :lol but bear with me, it's prelim... Okay, well I changed somethings up, I still don't like some of the trades, I actually hate them now because I think some of the teams are overpaying. The other problem I'm having is Voloshenko and Bolland seem a bit low...Am I wrong here...I was thinking about moving Soderberg down a bit and moving Voloshenko up.
