    Most players discussed are the Top 5-10 guys. As a Penguins fan, I know the team will get a great prospect with their first round pick. My question is about the second round. I am not at all knowledgable about the talent in the draft and am wondering who has "first round talent" that could slip to the second and other players that would deserve a look in the early second round. Best Player Available type of players, is what I mean.

    Bruce Graham could be one of the big steals in the draft. He's projected for the 2nd round.

    Michal Sersen is also projected in the 2nd round I think and if he had not been injured, he would have go in the end of the 1st IMO

    I've seen quite a few polls in which Sami Lepisto doesn't make the first round, but I've also seen a few where he does. If he lasts, I think the Pens should take him (unless they find a dynamic forward whom tehy believe will be better). He had a great WJC, and I feel whoever picks him will get a good player.

    Evan Mcgrath might slip out of the 1st round, Adam Berti has tremendous upside and may be an early 2nd, also agree with
    Pens4ever Lepisto would be an excellent 2nd round pick. There are also some good Swedes who may end up being early 2nds
    forwards Salmonsson,Soderberg,and dmen Fransson and Hedman.

    I think he'll be a first rounder. Too much size & skill to ignore, especially in this year's draft.

    2nd rounders i like as well:

    Alexandrov
    Tesliuk

    I'm going to keep promoting Berti, Bickell and Booth. I still see Berti and possibly Bickell as being able to squeak into the first round.

    It seems that Andrej Meszaros will go in the second, even if I think he worth a first round selection.

    Indeed.

    He strikes me as a player the Wild would love to get.

    Don't know if the Pens will pick him or not. And I agree he seems rated all over the place and could go in the first wrong. But I really don't think he'll fall past the Wild's 2nd pick.

    Alternatively they might try to move up a bit to grab him.

    Sersen will probably drop, his defensive game was exposed this year, but his size and puck skills wont drop him past the 3rd.

    As a Rimouski fan youd know what defensive liabilty does to a defenseman on draft day....Aaron Johnson.

    "Ogrodnikov"

    What a great NHL name, flashing back to the days when John Ogrodnick was a household NHL name. It makes me wonder if in future entry drafts we are soon to see...

    Lonsberryov
    Gouletov
    Ratelleov
    Payneov
    Federkov
    Kindrachukov
    McKegneyov
    Palmateerov
    Chabotov
    Linsemanov
    Jarvisov
    Giacominov
    Maniagov
    Chevrierov
    Oddliefsonov
    Larsonov
    Babychov
    Simmerov
    Gareov
    Boutetteov
    Ingov
    Dunlopov

    ...and on and on. This could become addictive! Anyways, if you recognize the names, you lived through hockey in the 70's and 80's!

    There's a pair of twins in the Czech Republic -- Roman and Michal Psurny -- that look like good bets for the second round. Also Carl Soderberg from Sweden, and Travis Zajac from the BCJHL.

    No chance he'll go over Pohl. Little chance he'll go over Steber either.

    Eric Hunter could possibly be the steal of the draft. 6'2'' 195.

    He's a great defensive D-MAN from what I've seen of him all year long. He has been our #1 D-MAN when he was healthy and he's giving heck of checks sometimes. He also have a great shot power
