IIRC, Kane was still the odds-on favourite #1, with 2 and 3 being a toss-up. There was some speculation that, if the Flyers picked first overall, they may still take JVR just because of their penchant for wanting big players to fit the Flyers image, but most of the hockey world knew Kane was the guy to have. That's how I remember it, anyway.
Thanks for your response, infidelappel. What I remember is that, while Kane held the edge among the three, his lack of size was a big question mark.
