    1. Utah select Tij Iginla as their first draft pick in the new city.
    Marketing department gets big name value to begin working with.
    Jarome Iginla comes to the team to unveil the team name and jersey.
    Jarome in the home jersey - Tij in the away jersey.
    #MakingMoney #Marketing

    2. Only 2 forwards are drafted in the top 10.
    Celebrini and one of Demidov or Lindstrom.
    Either Demidov falls outside the top 10 because of the Russian factor
    Or Lindstrom falls outside the top 10 because of the injuries this season.

    The eight D men - Levushnov, Silayev, Dickinson, Buium, Yakemchuk, Soldberg, Parekh, Jiricek

    3. Cole Eiserman and Trevor Connelly are the final two picks of the first round.

    4. Aron Kiviharju is drafted at #15 by Detroit.

    5. Igor Cherynyshov is not drafted in the first round.

    Zeev Buium goes top 5
    Levshunov is not one of first 3D drafted
    OTT steals Iginla at 7
    Three teams trade their top 12 picks AWAY
    Eiserman falls out of top 15 (analysts have lots of pun at Detroit's pass on #15 pick)
    Connelly not drafted first round
    Kiviharju not drafted first round

    Ottawa fans come out of draft weekend like Oprah gave everybody a new bicycle pump.
    Playoffs! Playoffs! Playoffs!

    With all the volatility in this year's draft I'm not sure anything really counts as bold, but I'll say Iginla to the Habs, and then having missed out on Iginla the Senators take sennecke.
    I can't see Iginla falling all the way to 9.
    Stian Solberg goes a lot higher than anyone thinks. Lowest I think is San Jose's second pick, but I could see him pushing top 10. Kinda like MO Seider a few years ago.

    GET WELL SOON, DOBBER.

    Detroit - NJ - Winnipeg do a three-way trade involving the first round picks, Rutger McGroarty, Albert Johansson and a second rounder.

    6 forwards and 4 D go #1-10.

    2. Only 2 forwards are drafted in the top 10.

    Not necessarily bold, but I'll do a mock through pick 18. Real hard to figure out where Anaheim is gonna go. They're absolutely stacked at forward and Verbeek wants to be a physical team, so I have them taking Silayev. Their other top end D are more offensive oriented so they can afford to take someone who might be a 25-30 point shutdown D that early.

    1. SJ - Celebrini
    2. CHI - Levshunov
    3. ANA - Silayev
    4. CLB - Demidov
    5. MTL - Iginla
    6. UT - Lindstrom
    7. OTT - Senecke
    8. SEA - Biuim
    9. CAL - Dickinson
    10. NJ - Helenius
    11. BUF - Brandsegg-Nygard
    12. PHI - Parekh
    13. MIN - Eiserman
    14. SJ - Solberg
    15. DET - Catton
    16. STL - Greentree
    17. WAS - Yakemchuk
    18. CHI - Chernyshov

    GET WELL SOON, DOBBER.

    I agree with 90% of these picks, so you're right, bold it is not.... It is smart though.

    I forgot about catton. I'd swap him for Hage to Detroit.

    I think you'd be fine leaving Catton off, there's real possibility he falls like Cristall did.
