Correct. I also remember reading that if the Penguins had picked first in the Ovechkin draft, then they would've had one fewer ping pong ball in the Crosby draft. Chicago would've won that, apparently.

Pens get Ovechkin (to go with Fleury, who they already had)
Hawks get Malkin and Crosby
Caps get Cam Barker (or Andrew Ladd or Blake Wheeler) and a damn good shot at Erik Johnson
