Yes, come to the dark side. *cackles maniacally*

I think we need more of a stay at home guy. Stoner and Falk haven't really done much but become depth defensemen at best.

I like to poke fun at squidz for not liking Forsberg. I'm sure he didn't purposefully place Filip at the bottom.

I think Forsberg will go to either the Islanders or Toronto. He'll be long gone before the Wild are on the clock, in my opinion.

I think worst case scenario is a player jumping into the mix in the top 6 and Grigorenko drops to the Wild at #7. Never mind that I believe they wouldn't pick a Russian, but given what some had said about his work ethic (whether it's true or not); I think the Wild would avoid him regardless and pick another player slightly lower on their board. And really, 'worst case scenario' is a bit overboard anyway given you'll get a good player here.

But if we pick Grigorenko, then that lets us lure Semin. Minneapolis is a pretty big Russian hub.

If we do somehow end up with Forsberg we could have our very own European border battle in the locker room.

I'd say it'd make for an interesting Europe vs. NA game. But Europe would win that one, too.

Soon we'll have more Swedes than Finns.

So about how long into the show do they actually reveal the top 5 draft order?

I'm guessing it will take 30 minutes. They have to make a show out of it.

Well they said they reveal the picking order, and then they do a mock draft.

I'm guessing a team within four spots below us wins it just to knock us down a spot. That would be the perfect way to end the season, no?

It would. But I don't want that to happen. There is a 9% chance or something that it does, though.
