From what I was told, Ladd and Montoya were almost even in their rankings and the group was split between them.
they felt that ladd & montoya were almost even, but if they were 4/5 on the depth charts and we had the #6 pick meaning that we were at risk of getting neither...

i know during the blueshirt inside/out show they mentioned talking to phoenix about moving up to #5, but if they knew that columbus was willing to trade #4 i think it would only make sense to give them a call...

and you mentioned not being able to get the #1, do you know if they made an attempt to get the #2 from pitt?
