LA's 2005 draft picks
 
I was just wondering if anyone had any info on what picks LA has?
I know they have a 1st and 2nd, but am not too sure after that.

The reason I would like to know is that it appears LA may have an abundance of picks this season. Assuming the new CBA keeps the general idea behind compensatory picks intact ( IMO they need to eliminate the awarding of picks to teams like EDM and CGY that trade for soon to be UFA's like Leetch and Cujo)
LA could be left with some extra picks.

IMO LA will not get anything for losing Modry as they signed Conroy and I think the two will cancel out.
However if LA does not sign a big name UFA then they would be in line for a solid 2nd rd pick for losing Palffy. Also later picks could be awarded for Laperriere and Stumpel.

There is also a chance that LA may get the 60th overall pick if Steckel doesn't sign.

The 2005 draft is shaping up to have top end talent and depth. LA could end up with 4 picks in the first 60 picks and a couple of additional picks in the 5th-7th rds.

Chicago has our fourth round pick from the Dempsey trade, and we have the BJ's eighth round pick from giving up a ninth round pick in 2004.

Also, I don't think Modry will be enough to cancel out Conroy's signing since Modry got less money.

Conroy got $3.15M a season and I heard Modry signed a 3 yr deal for $7M. That averages out to $2.33M.
Also the players play also factors in and IMO Modry is going to put up solid offensive numbers in ATL, while with the current roster Conroy may have a hard time leading the team in scoring. Just my two cents.

Also thanks for the info on the picks!

From the reports I've read on the prospects camp, lets hope so.
