With the 18th selection in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft the Calgary Flames are proud to select from Seatle of the WHL.............
We feel that it's about time we caught up with the new generation. Our organization is deep in hard nosed players but we need a slick puck moving D-man to compliment our hard D and create the extra offense that is needed.
Big day at work, I wasn't able to do my pick earlier...
But anyways, here it is...
With the 19th selection, Minnesota is proud to select a hometown boy named Patrick White. His shot is great, his release is fast, his shot is deadly accurate. Add to that good skating, good two way game, and you have a complete player. Will need time to reach the NHL, but he’ll be a good one.
Well sorry I didnt have much time to look at this topic yesterday night and i didnt get a PM so...
With the 21st pick in 2007 NHL entry draft Phoenix Coyotes pick from U-18 Developement team defencemen Ian Cole.
We think Ian Cole is one of the best defencemen in this draft and could be just as good as anybody else in the draft. We looked at him all season long but late in the season especially after the U-18 he was our guy. He's been outstanding and he can play very well at both end of the ice. He can hurt with his physical game just as much as with his deadly wrist shot.
18.Calgary - Thomas Hickey

With the 23rd pick in the 2007 NHL entry draft, the Philadelphia Flyers are proud to select, from Colorado College of the WCHA, Billy Sweatt!
''After taking a bit of a gamble on Turris at 2nd overall, we are more than happy to pick a player like Sweatt this late in the first round. Billy's an excellent skater with great hockey sense and solid offensive skills. He's a safe prospect and there's nothing wrong about that. He's also a LW, which is a position of need for the Flyers organization.''
Le Depisteur is now on the clock with Vancouver's first rounder!
Wow I was on for a good part of the day but I was never told I was on the clock and never got a PM. I will make my pick very soon, sorry to everyone I should of check on the first page for the rankings and realise I was next, again sorry.
The Florida Panthers are proud and please to select...from:
The Red Deer Rebels - C Brandon Sutter.
We feel he is the best player available at this point. Brandon is a hard working kid with very good potential on offence. He is a guy that can bring more to the table than offence and can be a very usefull player down the road. we are very happy to get him that late in the 1st round.
Ottawa is on the clock (Whitesnake), will send a PM shortly.
The 2007 Stanley Cup Champions (Ottawa Sens, just in case you didn't know).....are proud to select from the Oshawa Generals, Left Winger:
A pick that not only was the BPA for us but fills a need as far as the wingers we have already in our prospect pool. A left winger who shoots right, (and did play on the right wing on some occasions) a safe and solid prospect with a great 2-way game and a strong work ethic, what's not to love!
Edmonton (Ford Prefect) is on the clock and was PM'ed.
