Hey everybody. I've been doing a board to board mock draft. Here are the results so far:

UPDATED DRAFT BOARD

1) Was Ovechkin (write-in)
2) Pit Malkin (write-in)
3) Chi Olesz 11-10-6 (Barker, Schremp)
4) Clm Barker (write-in)
5) Pho Tukonen 18-6-4-1-1 (Ladd, Schremp, Pineault, other)
6) Nyr Schremp 55-30-5-3-1-4 (Ladd, Wolski, Radulov, Schwarz, other)
7) Flo Ladd 12-7-7-2-1-1-1-3 (Radulov, Wolski, O'Neill, Thelen, Staff, Pic, o/)
8) Car Thelen 9-4-4-1-1-1-1 (Radulov, Wolski, Stafford, O'Neill, Picard, Pineault)

11)La Schwarz 19-10-9-6-2-1 (Montoya, Radulov, Picard, Stafford, Chip)
12)Min Stafford 14-8-2-1-1-1-1 (Radulov, Chipchura, Picard, Lisin, Valabik, Montoya)
13)Buf Valabik 13-9-8-6-5-3-2 (Green, Chipchura, Radulov, Picard, Smid, other
14)Edm *on the clock*

***************************

So the Oilers are now on the clock. Make your selection for the 14th overall pick. If you want to trade the pick up or down, take the player with the best market value. We'll make the voting official on Wed at noon (mtn). Some very intriguing names still on the board, good luck!

Alexandre Picard is my choice. He's the kind of guy that the Oilers organization would fall in love with. Hard working, very talented, leaves it all on the ice. Potential #1 centreman I think. Gotta go with Picard for me!

(Green would be the other guy I'm leaning towards, but I'll stick with my Picard selection)

I can't imagine there being this much skill still available, but it would be fabulous. Picard.

Agreed. But then again, I think the only selection where you can say bad pick, is O'Neill to the Ducks at #9.

Hmm...lot of votes of confidence for Picard, but currently I'm the only one who has voted for him on the poll board. I take it the post goes up before I get done constructing the poll?

I'd probably say Picard... but Radulov still being on the board is certainly interesting to say the least.

For me, it's between Picard and Radulov... I picked Picard.

My choice would be Radulov first then a very close Picard.
Although there's much talk of Radulov moving up and not being available at 14
Either would be a good fit for the Oil and I would be quite happy either selected.
Both have that combination of skill and desire.

I'd be happy with any one of Picard, Montoya or Green.

I wish the Oilers did have another pick. I think Green is going to surprise a lot of people when he plays in the NHL.

Cool, it looks like we get Picard. The Oilers are in desperate need of a left winger.

Agreed. Thats why I'm hoping the Oilers trade their late Philly 1st rounder and something else so we have two picks in the same range so we can grab him and another kid.

Picard can play all 3 forward positions so I heard.

Also, what you need today might not be what you need tommorrow. I remember when the Canucks drafted the Sedin's, we had a pretty good secondary scoring with Cassels, Bertuzzi (scoring 50 points or so), and even Alexander Mogilny.

This is why I think it's best to draft by *organizational need* - which is to say, imagine making a team of only prospects and very young players on the Oilers roster, what looks deep and what doesn't? LW doesn't look so hot if you look at it that way, with only Torres there of any consequence (unless you still hold out hope for Jani Rita).

Good point, but the Oilers have a habit of converting their centers into wingers. I wouldn't be surprised to see Brodziak end up on one of the wings.

Yep looks like it didn't take long to get a concensus. I'll move to the next team shortly. I'm gonna keep the poles open. All votes prior to the deadline will still go in the official tally. If nothing else, see if this board can topple the Rangers in total votes.

Great selection. I'm a huge Picard fan, and think he would be great addition to the Wild at #12. We opted for Stafford, which I think is also pretty good value at 12 (helped largely cuz he's home-grown). Good luck on Montoya in the twenties!

Hey, does anybody know where I'm going next. Is it just the Stanley Cup Champs who automatically pick 30 or S.C. participants at 29 & 30? Do the rest of the teams just go by points no matter how many rounds they advanced?

Picard would be a good pick but I am going to go off the map and pick a player that many of you may not heard of at LW Lauri Korpikoski he plays for TPS Turku and most of the scouts are hoping to steal him late in the first round but since most of the scouts have now seen him he could go earlier according to RLR (the redline report) he is quickly moving up the charts.

He was phenominal at the under 18 tournament and also at the Five Nations tournament.

(Again Picard would be a fine choice I just wanted to be different )

Korpikoski's an interesting pick, but I think he'd be a stretch even with Philly's pick. But if the Oilers like him enough, maybe they'd be willing to upgrade their second to get him.

The rules are:

Lottery picks 1 - 14

Go by the seasonal standings from 15 - 23

Divisional winners will be put in place from 24 - 29

Then you've got the Stanley Cup winner in 30th spot

If a divisonal winner wins the cup, it'd be divisional winers from 25 - 30, with the cup winner in 30th, and the rest done according to points (lowest to highest).

I think it's NY Islanders, Nashville St. Louis and Columbus and Calgary from 15-19

Thanks Miz. I take it the divisional winners will also go in the order of points (except the champ? Then the tiebreaker for points is fewest wins, just like the inverse for qualifying for the playoffs.
