Also TB has absolutely zero need for Joe Sakic and Colorado isn't trading him. Pointless, really.
San Jose needs Dan Blackburn, why?
Boston gives up Lars Jonsson just to move up 3 spots? How dumb is that?
And no way Valabik goes in the 11 spot. He's late 1st round at best and I see him as possibly slipping into the 2nd.
Also if the Blues take Smid at 17 and pass on Korpikoski then they've made a bad decision, IMO. I don't see any team passing on Radulov and taking Valabik, O'Neill or Picard ahead of him. I don't see Wes O'Neill as a top 10 prospect.
All in all not very good, IMO humble opinion. As for the Blues, I don't think that much of Smid as a first round pick and had Chipchura been on the board the Blues easilly would have taken him without missing a beat. I like McGrath in the 2nd round. May have preferred David Shantz, however.
