and the starting centers no less!
I'm anxious to see what they got, and see how they handle pressure situations.

This is an article from the Globe and Mail this morning (before the final cuts were announced) about Richards and the selection camp.

congrats to Jeff Carter and Mike Richards! good luck boys!

those 1st round picks don't look so bad now huh?

let's hope that they both put on a show in Finland at the WJC.

I know he was injured recently, a knee I think but I'm not sure. I'm just wondering if he is even able to play.

It's expected that Carter & Richards will center Canada's top two lines at the WJC.


We've been very very good in the first round of late.


95 - Boucher (22)
96 - Zubrus (15)
97 - no pick
98 - Gagne (22)
99 - Ouellet (22)
00 - Williams (28)
01 - Woywitka (27)
02 - Pitkanen (4)
03 - Carter (11) & Richards (24)

Only in 1999, was there a player picked within 5 picks after our choice that I would rather have. In 1999 Ottawa took Martin Havlat with the 26th pick.

I guess it also depends because a starting goalie would of been a much better pick then Havlat also. We still haven't seen Havlat's or Ouellet's full potential yet. I think he would of developed better in the Flyers system too (Ouellet).

Funny its only a few monthes after the draft and IMO the value of both Carter and Richards have rose. Richards is listed as the 1st line center prediction so does that meaned he may have closed the gap a bit between him and Carter?

I think Canada's top two lines are essentially considered equal.

As players today, I think that Richards & Carter are nearly equal.

Carter however has better physical gifts. He's bigger and from all reports, he can skate like the wind.
