    Write five more or less surprising things that you think will happen on draft day:

    1 : St-Louis trade down to 4 (Caps) or 2 (Pens) and grab Kessel or Stall and Kessel doesn't fal (he's picked 2nd overall)
    2 : Minisota trade up packaging its two first picks and grab Backstrom
    3 : Colombus takes Brassard higher than expected (6th)
    4 : Tlusty is drafted in the top 10 before Frolik and Frolik falls out of the top 12
    5 : Helenius and Bernier will be top 20 picks and one will go in the top 15.

    6 : Florida won't take Stewart... ;)

    1) teams will be scared of Little and he will drop out of top 12(maybe even go past 15)

  4. I think Minnesota is going to select Okposo since hes from minnesota. Canucks will trade Bertuzzi + 1st round overall to Boston for the 5th pick and pick Staal.

    Some team is going to pick a player that's either ALOT lower than everyone except them have projected to go or is completely off every scouting services' radars.

    I can almost guarantee that won't happen LA (11th overall) will definitely get Frolik if he falls out of the top 10.

    Although there's nothing wrong with the prediction, this is the kind of thing you could say every year. :dunno:

    I think Claude Giroux will be drafted mid first round.

    I could really see this happening

    And about Frolik, I think your right, LA will probably take him at 11, I didn't thought about it

    - Tlusty goes before Frolik
    - Blues trade 1st overall for Washington's 4th overall + a second. Washington takes Johnson, and the Blues take Toews.
    - ONE goalie will be taken in the first round
    - Philadelphia will trade up with their slew of 2nd round picks
    - Johnson is the only defenseman drafted in the top 10

    I'm fairly certain Philly is down to two 2nd rounders (Phoenix's and their own) after trading Florida's and Tampa Bay's to the Coyotes with Josh Gratton for Denis Gauthier.

    1. The canucks make a move up in the draft(involving their first rounder)

    2. The Canucks make another trade that doesn't involve their first rounder

    3. The Bruins Stay Put and Grab the Free Falling Phil Kessel

    4. The Blues move down as a bidding war begins between Washington, Pittsburgh and Columbus for the first ov pick and the right to draft Johnson

    5. Atlanta Trashers move down in the draft

    6. Los Angles goes off the board a bit and grabs Bernier(goalie)

    7. If Columbus loses out on E.J. they switch picks with Minnesota who grabs Okposo

    8. Bryan Little falls to the Devils where ever they pick

    9. Toronto grabs Ty Wishart

    10. Tlusty falls out of the top 15 or goes top 7

    Apparently the Kings are sending them a 2nd rounder as compensation for hiring Dean Lombardi.

    You can count on the rangers trying to trade into the top 10.

    Leafs make a deal.

    One of Bell, White, Harrison, Kronwall moved, or/and Antropov.

    Might be to move up, or package with a pick to acquire a player.

    They might move ONE of those, with Antropov; but they definitely won't move ALL of them.
