Hey guys. Sorry to pollute your board w/ another draft poll. But I thought it might be fun to do a mock draft going from team board to board. This board probably has the best idea of what your team needs. I would have simply used the Olesz/Schremp poll, but I wanted Barker to be on there too. I'll close the ballot in two days, although this might be unrealistic. If voting is 1-2 I'll have to extend it. Hopefully I included everyone who has a realistic chance of being selected. I'm skipping over Washington and Pittsburgh. Thanks!
I don't know, maybe a Rob Blake if he reaches the sky limit. The big question is how likely is it that he gets there. There's people who are better suited than myself to answer that q. He was the one name that consoled me when the Wild were stinking before they went on a tear.
I think Olesz is a good pick though. I see Chicago as pretty indifferent between him and Barker where as Columbus is desperate for Barker. Wouldn't surprise me to see Chicago get a bonus pick (2nd rnd, or more likely a 3rd in a deep 2005) from the Jackets in order to steer clear of Barker.
