The unbiased view from the main board on who won the draft. Some great opinions about our draft picks.

Out of curiosity, did anyone have more selections than Buffalo, with 11? I know there were 3 teams that had 10 picks going into the draft. I'm not sure if some of the teams added more picks by dropping back/trades etc.

I liked the Kings moves of trading up for Zykov and the Habs stealing Fucale. I think he's going to be great. I like the Vancouver picks. I'm not sure about the trade, though. I guess they had to do that given their structure.

Very Classy, what the Devils did. And I hope Brodeur ends up being a solid prospect for them. Way to go, Devils.

Two potential studs in Ristolainen and Zadorov with their first two picks.

Addressed size up front - something they needed - and added goaltending depth - something you can never have too much of.

Edmonton. I really like Nurse as a pick for them but if they have Yakimov and Yakupov on the same team Bob Cole won't be allowed to do their games and he is a beauty.

NJ wins big here.

I liked what the Flames did but i'm bias of course.

Columbus and Buffalo also deserve a mention.
Thought I'd give some perspective from fans around the league for some of the fans who don't follow the draft much.
