    It's for an EA 2007 league, some players have already been picked, obviously. I'm thinking of taking Brooks Laich, he might see a lot of time with Ovechkin next season.

    Josh Gorges would be my pick out of those, with Hollweg second.

    How much ice time do you think Gorges will see this season in San Jose?

    I'm looking for a prospect who either played last season, or is guaranteed to see some NHL time this season.

    Laich wont be seeing time with Ovie...maybe the occasional Double Shift from ovie but rarely will he be out there with him so dont take laich if you want him for his potental with Ovechkin

    I would reconsider the Laich pick, I doubt he'll see much time along side Ovy unless it's on special teams...I think Laich is going to be one of the players that is going to bounce around on the lines and his minutes will vary, pretty much a utility guy

    He has extreme outside chance of maybe centering the 2nd line if Beech doesnt workout or if a top 2 center isnt brought in which McPhee has already said that he doesnt plan on signing anyone else

    But out of that list, potentially Laich could be near the top in scoring

    Considering they just traded away Preissing and Gorges is a puck-moving defenseman, I'd say he has a good shot of third pairing time as well as powerplay time, maybe on the 2nd unit.

    Ok, I've got it narrowed down to Laich, Downie, Slater, Gorges and Hanzal. In that order.
