At that time Hossa and a top ten should have been good enough, Ward had just come off a great late winter-spring run with the Habs and management probably felt that it was too much for one player. Plus the draft was a good one and all the scouts said a player drafted in the 2nd round of that draft maybe as good as a top ten in the 1st round, it was too balanced and the price for top pick shouldn't have been so steep.

With Ovechkin and Crosby, well they are a different beast. The asking price will be steep.

Plus our pick in Kats maybe the steal and I think the better of at least Horton if not Stall too.
