    if im them id take Olesz... Him and Ruutu would be brutal in 3 years, if that... Besides he's a big guy who plays a physical game i hear...

    sounds like the typical hawk player...

    Chipchura, he's a big forward from the WHL. Unless brother Brent has something bad to say about him, that's who I see Brian Sutter and the Hawks taking...him or Cam Barker.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Cam Barker go third now with the Hawkins holding that selection.

    Barker-Babchuk or Barker-Seabrook looks like a killer top pairing.

    The Hawks will trade there pick for Igor Larionov and a 9th rounder. O wait... Mike Smith is not GM. Hum, so they will trade the pick for Steve Thomas and a 9th rounder. Yea, thats it. :shakehead

    I agree with leafaholix big time.


    Rosty Olesz would fin it very well this the Sutter system and the Hawks in General. Although he may be adding another Ruutu there...witch is by no means bad at all.

    I would think Barker would also be logical...i'm still as high on him as many were in the begining of the year. He's a stud.

    Those are your best best in Chicago.

    I am not 100% convinced that Malkin is the surefire #2 pick. It DOES seem likely at this point, but not 100% sure.

    If you were GM for a day, what would you want for it? ... most noteably, from the Oilers. Some quick info:
    - have the 14th and another 1st rounder (in the 25-30 range)
    - have a major overload at forward, and especially on the LW. Could move one or more of Isbister, Chimera, Rita, Horcoff.
    - have a minor overload on defense. Could move one of Smith, Staios (don't want to, but could), Woywitka (don't want to, but could), Lynch (see Woywitka), and well, pretty much anyone else not named Brewer or Semenov.

    Could a package of what's listed do the job?

    But check there:

    http://nhl.com/onthefly/news/2004/04/210264.html

    and you will read from Pens GM Craig Patrick :
    ----------
    Ovechkin would see to that but, even if the Penguins don't get the No. 1 pick, Patrick is excited by No. 2 prospect Evgeni Malkin, another Russian forward.

    "There are two really great players for sure, and we'll get one of them," Patrick said.

    As for Olesz, if it is never great to have a concussion, he seems to have bounced back from it in a decent way. He started to play again in early feb then in march played in the Extraliga playoffs posting 3 (1g+2a) in six games.
    You can find his career stats there:

    Olesz would be the best pick... he's just very talented.

    I'd be hesitent to take Barker... if you want a defenseman, move the pick for a mid-rounder and draft AJ Thelen.

    originally, the pens where pretty high on Chipchura (if they didnt get the #1) and thats where the post-gazette article came from about a week ago (i have the article, just need to find it in the post-gazette stash i have), but on espn radio 1250, reports the past couple of days of stated that the pens are high on malkin and are 99.9% sure he is there man now as stated by ParisSaintGerman above
     
  20. Do you think Chicago would be willing to trade with FL for a package including their pick (#7)? My idea would be the #7 and right wing Rob Globke or center Kamil Kreps. I'm not sure if this is enough or not but the core players (Bouwmeester, Weiss, Jokinen, Horton, Stewart, Luongo) are not tradeable.

    Chicago doesn't need Globke or Kreps.

    And Florida could grap a great player at 7... there really isn't much of a drop between 3 and 7... the major drop in talent is between 1 & 2, then 2 and the rest.

    Chipcura obviously was a smokescreen in case we didn't finish last overall and lost out on the lottery. Malkin is the consensus #2.

    I only saw Chipchura once, but I'm not seeing how he could be remotely considered for the #3 spot? Olesz does it all, and does it better, IMO. I wouldn't take Chipchura in the top-10.

    I think Chicago picks Olesz at #3 in a no-brainer. He's NHL ready with a ton of upside.
