    You be the GM:

    Looking back at who was available when your team picked, who would you have drafted with the your clubs picks?

    Here are mine for the Washington Capitals:

    1-Alexander Ovechkin-f
    27-Dave Bolland-f
    29-Mike Green-d
    33-Johan Fransson-d
    60-Viktor Alexandrov-f
    66-Denis Parshin-f
    88-Wes O'Neill-d
    132-Dimitri Vorobiev-d
    138-Roman Wick-f
    166-Peter Guggisberg-f
    197-Martin Houle-g
    230-Valeri Tenkanen-f
    263-John Carter-f


    I figure it will be interesting next year to look back at the prospects you picked development vs. whom your club picked.

    The scouts probably saw something in some players who they tought that would be better down the road. O'Neil and Hedman, who everybody here saw in the second round fall in the fourth. There's a reason for that...

    As a Sens fan, I'm pretty content with our draft. I would have taken Peter Tsimikalis instaed of Joe Cooper in the 8th round I think it was, but that's about it.

    Keeping the three trades we made, here's who I would've picked. (Hindsight is an unfair advantage because there's no way of knowing that certain players would have fallen so much further at each pick, but here goes)

    6. Rostislav Olesz (instead of Alvaro Montoya)

    19. Lauri Korpikoski (same)

    36. Roman Tesliuk (instead of Darin Olver :shakehead )

    48. Kirill Lyamin (instead of Dane Byers)

    51. Bruce Graham (same)

    60. Mikhail Yunkov (instead of Brandon Dubinsky)

    73. Zdenek Bahensky (same)

    80. Viktor Alexandrov (instead of Billy Ryan)

    Everything after the 3rd round I can deal with considering that part really is a crap shoot.

  11. happy is an understatement. If Cups are won at the draft then the Blues will get their Cup when Kekelainen's picks start paying off.

    Hrm, I guess it's easier as an armchair GM, but I would have stayed at #22 and assumed Zajac would still available, then picked Wes O'Neill with the 3rd we traded.

    I don't know how to feel. Seeing Schwartz, Zajac, Wolski, Schremp, Meszeros all within 10 picks before us and seeing how there were a lot of 1st round flip-flopping going on, I would've hoped that Nonis traded our 1st and maybe a 3rd + 4th or next year to move up. But oh well. Looks like this Cory Schneider guy isn't too bad.

    At least he looks like the Sedins!

    Who are you to say a 17 year old is a ''career backup''? Schneider could be the best Nuck' goalie of all time, or not even play 1 game in the NHL. Thats the beauty of it.

    Anyways...

    Round 1: Green
    Round 3: Hedman
    Round 4: Mcgrath
    Round 5: D.Brown
    Round 6: ****ikov
    Round 8: Schulz
    Round 9: Hansen

    Watching the NHL entry draft, his biggest two assets were:
    1.) He had good interviews
    2.) He went to the same school as George Bush

    Well then they mentioned he posted good numbers at Phillipe-Andover and U-18, but still.....

    Going into the NHL entry draft, Schneider was considered a very legitimate first round selection around where he was picked. I think it was a good pick by Vancouver.

    Of course this "hindsight" drafting is based upon knowing that your preferred player would DEFINITELY not be chosen by another team whereas in real life you wouldn't know that. So you might snap him up earlier.

    Confused? OK, an example: You re-pick Wes O'Neill at, say, #113 because you KNOW that the Isles actually got him at #115. But in the real-time draft you might well have picked him at #40 because you might well have thought somebody else would pick him up soon (before your next pick at #70).

    Yeah- I'm raining on your post-draft parade.

    theres only 30 starting goalies in the nhl.. so first of all spaces are limited even if you may be good enough. Also goalies development are usually harder to predict and a lot of the starters in nhl are just surprises. Add to fact this kid is only 17 we won't see him in 5 yrs down the road, by then our goalie situation might have been solved. By saying career backup, i mite be too nice in that statistically most late 1st round goalies don't make it to the nhl.. btw i see that u changed round 9 to hansen.. from info he seems like a good pick at that spot..

    Personally I thought it was an ok pick. Not a good pick but not a bad one by no means. I just thought Schneider would be too much of a project going to Boston College while I feel that the Canucks need an "impact-player" as the Manitobe Moose has none and outside of Kiril Koltsov, we have no sensational prospects. Many "safe" picks and checkers that might one day make the NHL, but no one great. Schneider may or may not make a difference for us four years down the road, I just thought that pick should've been used better and could've been used better seeing how Dallas, San Jose, Calgary, New Jersey all traded around their 1st rounders and seeing how Schwartz, Meszeros, Wolski, Zajac and Schemp all went within 10 picks before us.
