    Wow. How many times now has the worst team not gotten the first pick? It seems like it's been the last several years - back to '99 at least. The system is doing what it's supposed to do.

    I was hoping a small market team wouldn't get Ovechkin.

    They just decided to dump all these big name players and then they win the holy grail of lotteries.

    Can you get any luckier?

    So the Gods of hockey have decided to give the next supposed superstar to a guy who punched a fan and who has awfully managed a franchise so far...
    Are the hockey Gods predicting Lockout?

    Woohoo!

    Ovechkin, Ouellet, Semin, Fehr, Eminger, Morrisonn, Aulin, Stana, Klepis, Sutherby, Johansson, Fleischmann, Gordon, Laich, Cutta, Daigneault, Yonkman...

    Nice core! McPhee is getting panned these days, but his accumulation of talent and picks this year is going to garner some serious kudos in a few years.

    Yeah.

    But hey, lets just grab Malkin and be happy. We're still going to get one hell of a player. The good news is there's not only a clear cut No. 1, but a clear cut No. 2.

    We'll live.

    Don't feel sorry for us. We're getting Malkin.

    It would have been nice to have Ovechkin, and its a bit of a kick in the teeth that he's on his way to Washington, but there's no point dwelling on it. We got Fleury last year, Malkin this year (in all probability) and if next season is locked out, a 48.2% chance at Sidney Crosby if things turn out that way.

    Whether or not we got Ovechkin was not going to make or break the franchise.

    NUMBER 4 is COLUMBUS or CBJ. Just to clarify, as COL means Colorado, I was thinking, "who the hell gave colorado a top pick?" and "colorado held onto a first round pick long enough to use it?" Just clarifying.

    You're joking right? Washington was already close to, if not in the bottom 5 before we traded away our stars. :shakehead
