I'd be happy with anything in the 15 range. THe way the draft works is a wrap around style, ala Fantasy football drafts. So, if you draft first overall...your not picking again till the 60th pick. If we miss on the top 5, I'd go for somewhere between 10-20.

I'm going to go ahead and wish for 1st overall. But I have a question for the peanut gallery. When was the last time Buffalo won anything?

My prediction is Boston. The gods have been good to their sports franchises.

I think we land at #4, so we then start discussing if we'll land the next Brendl, Bonsignore, or Volchkov; or the next Luongo, Kariya, or Pitkanen.

This was an e-mail I received from the NHL

Quote:
Dear ####,

The National Hockey League Board of Governors will meet
Friday in New York to vote on the ratification of the Collective
Bargaining Agreement, to formulate the order of selection for
the 2005 NHL Entry Draft
, and to consider rule changes for
implementation. The meeting will begin at 1:00 PM ET.
Following the meeting, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman will
hold a press conference.

NHL.com will be streaming this press conference live at
approximately 3:00 PM ET! Following Commissioner Bettman's
press conference, the results of the draft lottery order selection
for the 2005 NHL Entry Draft will be streamed live on NHL.com
at 4:00 PM ET.
"To formulate"? That sounds a lot like make up or invent. With the Rangers having 3 balls, this being a closed door selection, and the need for a big city to win Crosby, I'm going to say he'll be in New York next season.

I think the top five will be the following:

1. Nashville Predators
2. Montreal Canadiens
3. New York Rangers
4. Chicago Blackhawks
5. Buffalo Sabres

I would take that at this point. 5th assures us of Brule, JJ, Pouliot or Kopitar. And I wouldn't mind having Crosby in Nashville. Of course, i'd rather Buffalo, but...

BTW, as your in the UK like me, do ya know what time GMT the draft is starting. I read that TSN are streaming it live. Cheers

If you're talking about today then TSN says

Quote:
SportsCentre Special: Game On gets underway at 2pm et/11am pt with a variety of features and interviews. At approximately 3pm et/Noon pt, NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman will step to the podium in New York for a live press conference announcing the ratification of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement and the rule changes for the upcoming NHL season.

At 4pm et/1pm pt, TSN, along with French-language partner RDS, will exclusively televise the highly anticipated 2005 NHL Entry Draft Order of Selection. Bettman will announce the selection results in reverse order, counting down from 30 to 1, live from the podium in front of TSN cameras.
So using the following time-zone converter I make it:

Game On: 19:00 GMT (20:00 BST)
Gary Bettman: 20:00 GMT (21:00 BST)
Draft Order: 21:00 GMT (22:00 BST)

Getting the 1st pick would be great, but I can't help rooting for the 2nd pick so that we can get Jack Johnson. We are in need of a really good defensemen prospect.
