The Washington Capitals also announce that they are earnestly seeking to move up in either the fourth or fifth rounds of the NHL draft. All offers will be considered!

It's 20 rounds.

12 forwards
6 defencemen
2 goalies

I guess if you wanted more of one you could, but you only get 20 picks.

Then we can start a poll on a thread listing the rosters and get the HFBoards users' opinions of top teams.

It'll take a couple of months, but that's the nature of this kind of draft. Check in every couple of days inbetween picks.

If we go with 20 rounds (or 22 if we're allowed two extra skaters for special teams) then perhaps midway through the draft (after the 10th or 11th round) we could reduce the wait period from 12 hours to 6 hours.

Ahh thats so amusing. You get all antsy and start complaining when someone hasn't made their pick within half of their alloted time, only to pull out the 'I actually have a life' card when you hold up the draft yourself.

I am starting an 8-hour work shift right now, so I'll be able to pick right after work (the 12 hours will be up for the other guy).

I will pick for sure between eight and nine hours nomis, so prepare your next pick then.

I had a hard enough time deciding who to take with my last pick, let alone planning any more than 1 in advance.

Where do you live? Those are some horrible work hours if you're in N.A. somewhere.

Great working hours! Here in South Korea. 1 p.m.- 9 p.m.

It's 7:05 p.m. but my smallest adult class is empty because yesterday was part of the three-day Chusok holiday, basically a sort of Thanksgiving Day of celebrating the harvest and honouring one's ancestors. I teach English as a Second Language (ESL). I was the guy on the World Cup Forum who caught the Sweden-Finland game on ESPN's webcast but couldn't find the other games broadcasted or webcasted anywhere. (I was also the same guy who predicted a Canada over Finland Final before the tourney began, but that's another matter.) The Koreans are the most internet-connected country in the world per capita, same with mobile phone usage, as Samsung and LG handsets are everywhere, many feeling the social pressure to get the latest models, like the 3.0 megapixel digital camera phones common around here. People also invest a lot of money to get new cars, so there's not many older ones on the road. Social pressure has made this into as technologically advanced country as Japan, and just next door.

I'm a Canadian hockey nut stranded in an oasis of hi-tech, with every imaginable soccer, baseball and basketball game on t.v., but not a single hockey game. "Too violent," Koreans say, as no one I meet likes the game, very few do in this country. (Though Esa Tikkanen is playing here, for a Korean team in the new Asian hockey league which also has some Russian developmental teams based in the east - but no tv coverage, just live games if I travel four hours to see the game near Seoul, away from where I am.) "Too violent" and yet there's boxing, kickboxing and squat on a guy and pummel him while he's down boxing galore!! And taekwondo up the yinyang. And Koreans wonder why they lost the 2010 Olympics bid to my native Vancouver (I am a Vancouver Islander = VanIslander). In fact, I was born in the same hospital room as was Burnaby Joe, and only a few weeks before him.

Anyways, I have two more hours of work ahead of me before I go to my great apartment near the beach on this island off the southeast coast, turn on my computer and hopefully can then pick one of the two players I really want, as I watch CSI:4 and then one of the five movie channels. Did I mention I pay no rent? Only 3% income tax? ... Life of an ESL teacher in this country is sweeter than in Japan, it really is. And the local food is great if you like it spicy.

But no hockey. (sniff, sniff)... then again, I picked the right year to be here. I think I'll stay until the lockout is finished.

PICK MAN PICK... You can be sure that I'll pick as soon as I can nomis. Maximum five hours before I will draft. Max.

Only because shelovesshanny was online during the day on Mon & Tues, so I figured they would be around yesterday to make their pick.

Captains Sakic and Alfredsson with Gonchar on the powerplay? The Edmonton Oilers has the beginning building blocks of a Cup champion.

The Capitals' Datsyk, Lidstrom, Turco are great defensively but are too Red Wings fan-like for my liking.

I just went for the sickest line: Naslund, Elias, Guerin

thats exactly what i thought when i picked datsyuk. i was thinking modano but age and potential played into my decision. the third round has been by far the toughest. lots of players there all at the same level. and yes that is a very sick line. you may just outscore youre opponents with that one line. youll only need a goalie along the lines of jim carey to win.
