    Well we are less then a week away form the big day and I think its time for some bold draft predictions. Here are a few of mine:

    Bold Predictions

    -Washington will keep the #1 overall pick

    -The New York Rangers will do better with their 2 first rounders then the Caps

    -The wild will draft a high risk high reward type player

    to be continued...

    There will be atleast one bust in the 1st round.

    There will be 2 Slovaks selected in the 1st round.

    Ovechkin will be taken with the 1st overall pick. :teach:

    1. The Caps will keep the first pick.
    2. Chicago will either keep the third pick and select a forward or trade down, with most likely Columbus to number 4.
    3. Edmonton will not draft from Russia in the first round.
    4. The Islanders will make a trade that has everyone scratching their heads.
    5. Three Finns will go in the first round.
    6. Wolski won't go as low as some of the pundits are predicting.(Some have him outside the top 15.) He will be selected top 15.
    7. David Bolland will go late in the first round. Whoever takes him will be ecstatic that he dropped.
    8. Montoya and Schwartz will be gone by pick 12.
    9. Schneider will be in the 2nd round.
    10. David Brown will go late 2nd or early 3rd round.

    But then again, they are all guesses.

    Someone will draft Boris Valabik in the top 10, possibly even trading up to get him.

    DAMN YOU!!!!

    I just got done watching Kitchner loose to London 3-2...I'm completely sold on Valabik....His progress he made this season, his upside, everything makes him a top 10 pick.

    I would take Boris Valabik over Smid and Meszaros.. Mabey even Thelen. He's the real deal folks.

    Valabik, Thelen, and Stafford are my guys heading into the draft, I love there games, and there awesome players, and they'll go top 10.

    Viktor Alexandrov and Kirill Lyamin well steals, and likely get targeted by a good scouting staff, ( Devils, Sharks).

    4 goalies well be taken in the 1st round, Shantz well be a early 2nd along with 2 others at least.

    Even with Stanstny opting out, this is one of the best USHL draft classes in a while. Chris Zarb well be the first player chosen from this crop IMO, and Klubertanz a close 2nd, Oreskovich is also going to be taken high.

    Travis Zajac well fall out of the first round and well be the first pick in the 2nd round.

    Adam Pineault well fall, and fall.

    Schremp will fall to the second half of the first round.

    The 1-2-3 order will be Ovechkin, Malkin, Olesz.

    There will be no movement of the top 5 picks.

    One of Nokelainen or Korpikoski will be selected in the top 15.

    Mike Milbury will make a trade that makes sense to noone but him.

    Mike Keenan will trade Huselius for a fourth round pick.

    Bob Pulford will fall asleep at the drafting table.

    Just one for me.

    Boris Valabik will go in the top 10 and the GM who selects him commits suicide 5 years down the line.

    Washington does NOT trade the pick.

    Thelen will be taken by CLB at the #7 spot after trading with Ottawa (previously acquired for Chris Philips and Ottawa's first for Novak and the pick). Ottawa drafts Andrew Ladd.

    Phoenix takes Tukonen not Montoya as many think

    LA trades up to #8 to take Montoya

    O'Neill not traded on draft day....Carolina goes through salary arbitration with him and grinds the heck out of him before moving him to Vancouver in late August.

    Vancouver drafts Lyamin

    Florida takes Bolland with Ottawa's first rounder

    NYR trades second round pick and Tom Poti for Denis Gauthier and a 2005 3rd.

    Rita traded to Minnesota for a 2nd rounder in 2005

    New Jersey picks Lukas Kaspar with their first rounder.

    Green gets picked by St Louis in the first

    Draft top 10:

    WAS - Ovechicken
    PIT - Malkin
    CHI - Barker
    OTT - Ladd
    PHO - Tukonen
    NYR - Olesz
    CLB - Thelen
    LA - Montoya
    ANA - Stafford
    STL - Green

    Guys, how is "Washington will hold onto the 1st overall" a bold prediction?

    Here's mine:

    Edmonton will select Dubnyk..... at #14. :amazed:
