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.
I don't remember much of a drop off actually. A very large number of people here wanted Voracek with the #2 pick, while some of us wanted Gagner in that spot (and not just for the sake of confusion). The whole thing was a toss up as I remember it.
