Well, Semin was going to be my pick here...that's pretty disappointing. I had a nice little defense planned out for him...

The last pick of the round, Buffalo selects Brian Gionta, RW


Gionta (left) will win another race to a puck

Small but very hard working two-way winger that has a terrific shot, Gionta has exploded since the lockout. His 48-goal season is certainly an anomaly, but he had completed seven consecutive 20-goal seasons (and would have been due for an 8th had a serious injury not derailed his 2011-12 campaign). Industrious and playing way bigger than his size, Gionta won the Stanley Cup in 2003 with New Jersey and has only been a minus player twice in his career (plus-61 in whole). A member of the 2006 Olympic team, Gionta plays a pretty fearless game and can be a thorn in the side of many bigger defensemen - notably Zdeno Chara, who he has drawn the ire of on many occasions...

The first pick of the following round, Buffalo selects Arthur Moore, D



A four-time Stanley Cup champion in the early 1900's with the famed Silver Seven, Arthur Moore was known for outstanding defensive abilities while paired with Harvey Pulford. A rather rugged, defensive defenseman (before such a term was really used), Moore covered a lot of ground with his excellent skating. He was named a First-Team All-Star in 1905.
