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.
What? Staal passing abilities are as good as Semin's fighting abilities. You may be thinking of Eric.
And Pens would take Toews or Giroux over Kessel, AINEC.
St. Louis- Toews
Pitt- Giroux. Him and Malkin would be dynamite.
Boston- Staal/Johnson/ Lucic
