Who will win the '05 lottery?

It's a bit early to ask, but we're here at the prospect bord

All guys tell that Crosby will make the first spot in the draft, but i think his lack of size will hinder him to get the final spot finaly....

Who could give Crosby a run for his money at the '05 lottery???

Thnx

Montreal definately IMO
he's a habs fan .. he's a fan favorite all around the quebec(ok also the canada but quebec see him more often).. I thought about what the habs could offers for the kid .. i ended up with :
1st pick 2005
1st pick 2006
Richard Zednik
Mathieu Garon
Andrei Markov
Mike Ribeiro
and probably a top prospect : Perezhogin,Hossa,Hainsey ...

I dunno if the other team will bite..

imagine if the kids turn like a bust ...
im still very confident in him :p

I think he wants to know who could push Crosby to the 2nd selection.. Who would be the first pick if Crosby isn't.

There is no lack of size. He's just 16 since 5 months and is 10 pounds bigger than when he came to Rimouski. He can grow up et get bigger in 2 years. I'm pretty sure he will be near to 6'0 and 195.

Therefore, Ovechkin > Crosby.

I hope to God the CBA gets fixed before this damned draft, so playoff teams don't get a chance to draft Crosby

I wouldn't worry about his size just yet. I was 6-1 at his age and wound up 6-4, so don't set that as his NHL size just yet. Besides, he's not a bruiser or anything, he's a scorer, so as long as he's solid enough to take the muggings he'll absorb with those stats there's no way he'll slip outta that top spot.

Yeah, he'll grow.

Brent Burns was 5'9 at age 17 and is now 6'4 at age 18.

I was 5'4 at age 16 and 6'1 at age 18.

Size at 16 doesn't mean much.

Well from what Hull was saying on Sportscenter the other day (no way they'll accept a cap, owners are way off from what they'll accept, etc..) I'm not too optimistic about it....though I've gotta beleive they'll do something for the draft if it goes that far.

Then again, Hull is constantly spouting off ridiculous BS so who knows.

I'm waiting and hoping for Stevens to shut Hull up permanently

His favourite team was the sharks because Owen Nolan used to play for the San Jose Sharks. He was sporting a fine Toronto Maple Leafs touque on a TSN special last year.

They asked him...

Q: "What is your favourite NHL team?"
A: "I like the San Jose Sharks because I really like the style Owen Nolan plays, I try to play like him."

"Q: What is your favorite NHL team and why?
A: San Jose. When the NHL was allowed to be seen in Russia we got a lot of Sharks games and I loved their logo. Since then I have followed the team and I liked some of the skilled players they had and I have continued to follow them."

why did you even ask this question. We haven't even had the 2004 Draft. There is absouletly no way to even give an educated guess.

Also by the time the draft rolls around Sid will likely be well over 6' and 200 lbs. So the only size problem will be his adjusting to playing while bigger than average. (a luxury he's never had because he has always played against older guys)

There's a late-breaking contender for most ridiculous, homeristic post of the year.

Thank-you, it also may prove to be inaccurate, After all, it's just my opinion and it doesn't mean any disrespect for the rest of the players. But I think its accurate, and not overstated, and certainly not ridiculous. I'm extrapolating from;

1.the popularly held belief that Sid is almost as good as Ovechkin, who is thought to be a once a decade player, even though Sid is almost 2 years younger
2. he's outscoring Mario's 16 year old records by more than 1.5 times even though he's only 2 months older than Mario was at the same point in the season (when the league was apparently more offensive/more run'n gun than trap)
3. his scoring is comparable to Gretzky's 16/17 year old season even though he's more than 6 months younger than Wayne was at the same point in the season (when the OHL was much more offensive than the "Q" is today)
4. his +- was top 5 in the "Q" when he left for WJC camp and he was leading the "Q" scoring by 20 points while the remainder of the top 10 were on average almost 3 1/2 years older.
5. I predicted a top 5 finish for him in "Q" scoring at the start of the season and that is starting to look a little "ridiculous".

Other than that, yeah I'm biased.

Do you honestly think that NHL teams (who actually no what they are doing) would take Crosby over any two players from the 2004 draft, much less the entire first round?
