I think Hemsky is more a "predators situation" than an obvious better choice; if we don't load up in the 03 draft with Dmen Hammer is still here as our 1st pair guy.
I think the analysis on the draft choices is pretty solid. Not even sure I buy the comments about Poile doing better with D than F, since as noted, other than Hemsky, their aren't even any good picks overlooked.
