    You certainly liked what you saw of the USA Team in the WJC! Very suprising!

    I don't think Montoya will go so high, but who knows...

    I'm asking myself if the concussion of Olesz will hurt his ranking, hope not but I see Malkin already in front of him.

    That's why I said he certainly liked team USA's performances. He should be around 15 or 20.

    It's sure that he doesn't have the same value now.

    IMO Montoya was going to be a first rounder even before the WJC's began. With his performance thus far, and even more so if he's great against Canada and finishes up the year well with Michigan, he could go top fifteen, maybe higher.

    If Malkin wasn't already ahead of Olesz, he certainly is now.

    I would take Malkin over Olesz. Malkin could be a first overall pick in many drafts, just not the one with Ovechkin in it lol.

    Yeah! And with Olesz's injury, Malkin has more chances to be picked 2nd than Olesz.

    P.S. I give ten bucks to the first person who can pronounce me Olesz's.

    Why :dunno: ? Oscar Hedman can make the first round at the limit :rolly: , but not the top 20. He's a great two way D-man, but it's the first time I hear his name for the first round.

    But we can believe in a surprise...

    He's climbing the charts in Sweden.

    Possibly ahead of Fransson.

    I think that Petteri Nokelainen and Aki Seitsonen had chance go TOP 20 this year. Also i think that Montoya and Tukonen go higher.

    Nokelainen is 24th on my Top 30 and Tukonen is one of my favorites of the drafts. So I totally agree with you on these two players. But I think Seitsonen is good, but not enough to be in the top 20. Maybe top 30. For Montoya, we'll see...

    Are you crazy! :shakehead :eek: :shakehead :eek: I just don't see Tukonen out of the top 10, with his skills and physical play. If you believe in miracle you may see Montoya in the top 5 or 10 and Schremp, ...maybe you're right:confused:...

    Tukonen looked much smaller when I saw him play in the WJC.

    Only reason he dropped... and he wasn't all that physical.

    2 goalies before Montoya?? Hasn't Dubnyk had a bad year, and Schwarz hasn't been having a very good WJC.....we saw last year what a good WJC can do for a goalie, see MA Fleury.

    Do you think if the Habs got the 15th overall pick and made an offering like that to let's say Colombus(1st overall pick), what would they say?

    Mike Ribeiro
    Ron Hainsey
    Marcel Hossa
    1st round pick in 2004
    1st round pick in 2005
    Richard Zednik

    It looks like you give up Montreal future (except Kastistyn) for Ovechkin. Uhm... way too much.

    I doubt that whoever gets the top pick will trade it. All of the teams could really use Ovechkin, especially Pittsburgh.
