Projecting the picks: Get a Grip

While it's all fun and fine to try and project the 1st round...or top 15...top 10...or even just the top 5--remember that come draft day, trades will be brewing, players jumping and falling, agents demanding contracts, scouts demanding sleepers, and so on.

1. Ovechkin to Washington
that is all we know.

#2 is most likely Malkin (98%) BUT- it may not be Pitt. It could be us.

#3 overall and beyond - Most everyone has declared Barker to be the 3rd best talent. But that doesn't mean a team will trade up to snag someone else in the spot...how about a goaltender needy franchise trading up to #4 and grabbing Scharz/Montoya...

Sather, Maloney, Renney may not have Tukonen, Olesz, Ladd ahead of say...Schremp, Meszaros, Radulov...

Damn it's going to be interesting.

that is very true and with a draft year considered so wide open after the top 2, if you asked all 30 teams for their top 50 and you would likely get 30 different list, with many similarities but none the same...which makes it interesting...

and it gets even more interesting when you start looking at the ideas of trading up or down since after making your own list you then have to try to guess the list of other teams to determine where your player is most likely to go...
