Habs Board 1st Annual Shadow Draft Lottery (For all thos too late to HabsFan18's)

Ok, since I was late to the party on Habfans18's draft lottery I fugred there have to be 29 other Habs fans that were also late.

So I figured I would start a second lottery for all the late comer's.

The rules are eerily simple (and lifted) from Habsfan18 since he does such a great job to begin with. There a few extra rules:

- If you were part of the other draft started by Habsfan18, you are not permitted on this one.
- The only exception is Habsfan18 out of respect for the work he puts into the original
- If there aren't enough members to complete the league then no draft will take place.

.. and now the part that I have gladly paraphrased and repackage from Habsfan18

- 3 rounds, snake format
- 1 team per member
- NO backups, if you aren't able to pick in the time frame you were supposed to pick then the BPA determined by me will be assigned to you.
- There will be a time limit of 12 hours on picks. PM me if you won't be able to be there for it with your list of players
- Draft will take place the day after the lottery, and we'll go by the final standings for the other teams
- Every team gets 3 picks, existing trades will not be recognized

4. Atlanta - Evander Kane - The Atlanta Thrashers hockey organization are pleased to announce their selection of Evander Kane from the WHL's Vancouver Giants. We needed to breach the racial divide in our city when it comes to hockey, and we feel Evander is the right man to do it.

5. Los Angeles - Magnus Paajarvi-Svensson - The Los Angeles Kings select Magnus Paajarvi-Svensson from Timra. (And shed a tear that Duchene is gone as he should be)

6. Phoenix - Zach Budish - the Phoenix Coyotes are proud to select, from the University of Minnesota of the National Collegiate Athletic Association, forward, Zach Budish.

We are very thrilled to get Zach, a very smart power forward. Zach has as tremendous shot, great vision, good size, and he has no problem getting physical. Although his development was setback with a torn ACL, we feel that his style of game is that of a good NHL player. Zach has all the tools and its just about putting them all together in the next couple of years.

7. Toronto - Brayden Schenn - With the 7th overall pick, the Maple Leafs are proud to select Luke's brother, Brayden Schenn.

8. Dallas - Jordan Schroeder - Well it looks like time has run out for the Dallas GM, therefore with the 8th overall pick in the draft the Dallas Stars pick the BPA in NA as per CSS final rankings - C - Jordan Schroeder from U Of Minnesota.

9. Ottawa - Jared Cowan - For our first selection of the draft and the ninth pick overall, the Ottawa Senators are absolutely thrilled, and more than a little bit surprised, to select defenceman Jared Cowan of the Spokane Chiefs. Thank-you.

13. Buffalo - Peter Holland - After years of having smallish centers who overvalue themselves and sign big contracts with rivals in the Northeastern U.S., The Sabres will reach out with the 12th pick to take Peter Holland of the Guelph Storm, what a steal!

14. Florida - Oliver Ekman-Larsson - There was a few surprise pick before us and one player fell to the claws of the Panthers. His name : Oliver Ekman-Larsson.

We just can't figure out how he fell to us, as he's a talented blueliner who might be a player like Lidstrom. While he shouldn't ever be as good, he's gonna anchor our blue line for years to come. He just need to adapt to NA game and put some meat on his frame.

15. Anaheim - Drew Shore - With the 15th, the Anaheim Ducks are proud to select, from USA U-18 NTDP, Drew Shore. This guy has a real offensive instinct with soft hands and his big body will be very useful in the NHL. We're gonna have a big one two punch at center with Getzlaf and Shore.

16. Columbus - David Rundblad - With the 16th pick in this year's draft, The Columbus Blue Jackets are proud to select from Skelleftea of the Sweedish Junior league, David Rundblad.

"David's offensive instincts are off the charts, his combination of size, speed and hockey IQ could help him become the PP quarterback that we have been looking for, we beleive with a little work on his defensive game that he could be one of the next top offensive defenceman in the league, we could not be more exited about this pick."

17. St.Louis - Zack Kassian - With the 17th overall selection, the St. Louis Blues are very proud to select forward Zack Kassian of the OHL's Peterborough Petes.

"We went with a defenseman last year, so we're going with a forward this year. We have a lot of really good prospects, some who have made the NHL this year. Zack will be an excellent addition to the organization. He had a decent year with Peterborough and we hope to see him representing Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championships next winter."

18. Montreal - Joonas Nättinen - It is our great pleasure to announce that the club de hockey canadiens have found his bigger, better replacement from the Espoo Blues of the Finish Elite league, centre Joonas Nättinen.

Nättinen has the size, skill and vision to be an impact player in the NHL, and should be a major part of our organization for years to come.

"We were ready to take a chance with this gifted prospect, we know he can become a great player, we'll make everythig so that he can become a good offensive player, as he said himself he still has lots of work to do but we are confident well make him a dangerous player. We were searching for a D at first but we tought since he was still available that it would be great to have such a player on our side."

23. Pittsburgh - Landon Ferraro - The Pittsburgh Penguins are proud to select, from Red Deer of the WHL, forward Landon Ferraro. We believe Landan can become a great player to play with Crosby and Malkin. He led his team in goals by a wide margin, so he got sniper potential. Also got a good U-18 despite an injury.

24. Vancouver - Jacob Josefson - After much deliberation, the Vancouver Canucks select from the SEL, Jacob Josefson.

25. Chicago - Louis Leblanc - The Chicago Blackhawks are pleased to select Louis Leblanc from Omaha of the USHL.

He's gonna be our number 1 in couple years. His vision of the game is fantastic and he's gonna be a force for our PP.
