Barker if Pully gets his way, Ladd if Tallon gets his. Barker is a great player, and you can never have to much depth. Down the lines having Seabrook, Babchuk, Vandermeer, Barker, Berard and McCarthy as your 6 dmen can't hurt. Barker is also the safe pick. The Hawks really need offense so unless they go out and spend money on some UFA's. (HA!) They SHOULD draft Ladd, a big power winger with offensive skills. On Radulov yea he'll score 20-25 goals but unless he gets MUCH better at D he'll let in a good 40-45.
after reading all i can on the draft coming up today, my take is that i would take barker. i was saying that the hawks should take olsez, but his concussion has me concerned with his health. however i would not be surprise if they trade the pick. i would.
the second round is what is going to be wild and exciting.
