In 2006, five pretty good players were picked in the top five. Even though Erik Johnson is a solid player, I'd say St. Louis still ****ed up. Here's how I see it:

1-St. Louis, with the first pick takes Nicklas Backstrom.
It would really solve some of the forward problems they've been having, especially at centre. A PPG guy would really help them.

2-Pittsburgh takes Phil Kessel #2.
Imagine a Crosby-Malkin-Kessel power play. The other team would **** their pants. Plus how good do you think Kessel would be doing if he had one of those to guys on a line with him?

3-Chicago still takes Toews third.

4-Washington takes Jordan Staal fourth.
Staal can dish out the puck decently well, not as well as Backstrom but well enough to get Ovechkin 50 goals a season while he was still good. Washington solidifies the PK.

5-Boston take Erik Johnson.
Unfortunately for the Bruins, that would mean they wouldn't get Seguin. But they do get another shut-down defenseman.
Pitts would take Toews before Kessel. Hell he probably goes first.
