A quickie on the Montoya article in the News

It is four weeks from tomorrow and the first five picks in the 2004 NHL entry draft have been made. Washington, which won the draft lottery, uses the first overall pick to select Russian phenom Alexander Ovechkin. And Yevgeny Malkin, Cam Barker, Andrew Ladd and Alexandre Picard are snapped up with picks two through five.

And then the Rangers select...Ratislav Olesz. Jeez, why the suspense?

The first paragraph was directly from the article in the Daily News. I am saying that if the draft goes like Dellapinhead suggests, Montoya is NOT an option.

Under that bizarre and incredibly unlikely scenario, I would either take Barker or trade down.

But Barker would have already been selected.

You would pass up Olesz, and trade down?

Ah, I misread it. I would either take Olesz or move down. I don't care who is on the board when we pick. I would listen to offers to move down. If someone is willing to overpay to move up, I let them.

just to note...i doubt picard goes top 5 either...but ovechkin, barker, ladd, picard, and montoya were the 5 guys invited to game 2 of the finals. so i guess dellapina just assumed those were the top 5 guys
