    My picks would be:

    #1 - Alexander Ovechkin

    Challenged only by Kari Lehtonen, I believe Ovechkin will come straight into the NHL after this lockout and score 30 goals, even on the Capitals.

    #2 - Kari Lehtonen

    #2. Will win the starter job over Pasi Nurminen when the season comes back, and will be a top Calder threat.

    #3 - Dion Phaneuf

    The most NHL ready defenseman not in the NHL perhaps. I believe he'll start slow, but Phaneuf is as sure as a bet it gets on the blueline.

    #4 - Nikolai Zherdev

    Already looks great in the NHL. Perhaps a Marian Gaborik-type start to his career? Either way, Zherdev looks like a future franchise player in the mold of Alexander Mogilny.

    #5 - Ryan Suter

    Perhaps the top talent defenseman around. Can do everything, but isn't the 'sure thing' Phaneuf is, so that's why he's not ranked higher.

    #6 - Milan Michalek

    When he played last year, he showed some incredible talent. I believe he's a lot more talented than some think.

    #7 - Nathan Horton

    Could be another Bill Guerin, but his injury setback hurts a little bit. Still, one of the better prospects around, though only barely a prospect.

    #8 - Igor Grigorenko

    Another super-talent, and yet another big-time player the Wings draft really late. He's small, but feisty, super-talented, and is NHL ready.

    #9 - Evgeni Malkin

    Further away from the NHL than most here, but as talented as any here too.

    #10 - Jeff Carter

    When you look for potential top line scoring centreman, Carter is way up there. I personally really like this kids scoring potential, and I think the Flyers have a winner on their hands here.

    Probobly forgot a player or two, but this is how I'd have it.

    EDIT: Okay, forgot MA Fleury. I'd put him in at #7 - 9 or so.

    Zherdev has 57 NHL games, Horton has 55 NHL games, therefore they're no longer prospects.

    Did you all know that Milan Michalek is undergoing yet another surgery on his knee? This time due to an infection that developed after the second surgery. :banghead:

    Speaking of a joke:

    Having Parise nearly a top five prospect, IMO, is a BIG reach. The guy is still a shrimp.

    Did you pick the name out of a hat or is that your hard on for Swedish guys clouding your judgment again? You're supposed to be Leafaholix.








    Not Alcoholix.

    He's as good a pick at #10 as there is. Draft position means nothing, look over his skills and abilities. There's almost nothing wrong with his game, and at the age of 19, he's probably one of the best defensemen in a men's league.

    Did you forget to add Zherdev or was his omission on purpose?

    a clear illustration of why Vlad the Impaler is, was, and always will be one of the best posters on this site. I'm proud to have you as a teammate. I literally just LOLed at that.
