Blackhawks Trying To Get First Overall Pick

The Chicago Blackhawks are trying very hard to acquire the first overall pick from the Washington Capitals, what would the Blackhawks have to give up to acquire the first overall pick from the Capitals?


Report: Blackhawks trying for No. 1 pick

TSN.ca Staff with files


The Chicago Daily Herald reports that the Blackhawks are talking to the Washington Capitals about acquiring the first overall selection in the 2004 NHL Draft.

Assistant general manager Dale Tallon admitted to the paper on Thursday that the Hawks are 'aggressively' talking to the Capitals about acquiring the No. 1 pick and turning it into Russian phenom Alexander Ovechkin.

"We're trying to make every effort to get the first pick," Tallon told the Herald. "We're talking to Washington and we're talking to them aggressively. I know a few teams are trying. This is a franchise-type player we're talking about here."

Capitals GM George McPhee said earlier this week that he had yet to make up his mind on how to use the first pick on June 26 in Raleigh, N.C.

McPhee told NHL.com he still wanted to interview Evgeni Malkin, the other Russian forward considered a top prospect.
