Do you think there is a chance they would be interested if a team offered them a package for their 1st round pick? If they pick 1st they will obviously draft Ovechkin. but if they slipped to 3rd, 4th or 5th... Do you think that it may be beneficial to acquire young players/developed prospects who could step in real soon in order to fill in holes on the team? Or will they definitly keep the pick and draft?
-If you think they may like to swap, what type of players and positions would they seek?
-If you think they will definitly draft, what position would they target first (aside from Ovechkin)?
I think that if Chicago gets 1st overall pick they should trade down and get Cam Barker. Chicago`s most pressing need is a stud defenseman and they would be getting virtually a sure thing in Barker. Also since Ovechkin is by far and away the best player available in the draft they could definately get something useful for that pick.
