I don't know the exact coverage in the states.  In Canada it is covered
by TSN, so maybe ESPN will grab their coverage!  I don't know!

As for the picks
Ottawa picks #1 which means it is almost 100% that Alexander Daigle will
go #1. He'll either stay or be traded in Montreal or Quebec.  IMO I would
take Kariya.  He should alot of leadership in the NCAA and so far in
the World Championships.  Daigle didn't show this for his junior team.

San Jose will then get Kariya.

Tampa Bay will either go for a russian Kozlov (I think that's it) or a
    defenseman Rob Niedemeyer (probably spelt the last name wrong)

Because of expansion I won't go further but I will name other of the
blue chip prospects

   - Chris Gratton
   - Chris Pridham
   - a swedish player who I can't remember his name

Draft Order
-----------
1) Ottawa
2) San Jose
3) Tampa Bay
4) South Florida or Anahiem
5) South Florida or Anahiem
6) Hartford
7) Edmonton
8) Dallas
9) NY Rangers
10) Philadelphia

the 8th thru 10th picks could be wrong - I don't have the standings here
and am guessing

(In my mind there are 8 top notch prospects in the draft, with Kariya
 leading the way but not going #1)

Shawn - GO CAPS (two first round picks for the next three years - THANKS
                 ST.LOUIS or should I say RON CARON and SCOTT STEVENS)

The last name is Niedermayer, as in New Jersey's Scott's last name, because
(you guessed it) they are brothers.  But Rob Niedermayer is a center, not
a defenseman.

I am not sure that the Sharks will take Kariya.  They aren't saying much, but
they apparently like Niedermayer and Victor Kozlov, along with Kariya.  Chris
Pronger's name has also been mentioned.  My guess is that they'll take
Niedermayer.  They may take Pronger, except that they already have too many
defensive prospects.

GO CALGARY FLAMES!  Al MacInnis for Norris!  Gary Roberts for Hart and Smythe!
GO EDMONTON OILERS!  Go for playoffs next year!  Stay in Edmonton!

I'd be very surprised if the Sharks take Kariya, especially given their
need for size.  My bet is Kozlov or Niedemeyer.

Rob Niedermayer is a forward (center, I think) with the WHL Medicine Hat
Tigers.  His brother, Scott, is a defenseman (now with the NJ Devils).

        The Sharks appear to be leaning toward picking Rob
        Niedermayer, a center (his brother Scott (?) is a defenseman
        picked by NJ a couple years ago).  They brought him in for a
        physical/tryout a week or so ago. From what I have read
        Niedermayer is the best skater in the draft, plays BOTH
        offense and defense, and isn't afraid of physical play.
        Defensively the Sharks are looking pretty good in terms of
        defense prospects (Rathje, Sykora, Ragnarsson), and our
        centers (Kisio et al) are getting old.

        With all of the small players the Sharks have I justs CAN't
        see them picking yet another small player like Kariya, he'd
        just get bashed by the oppposition and get a separated
        shoulder.

But the Sharks picked a smallish forward in Falloon, and probably
would rather opt for size rather than another smallish forward...
so Gratton or Niedemayer will likely be their choice...big franchise
type of centers.

I dunno about hat. I have friends up there on GEnie who are now saying that
Ottawa's gone soft on Daigle and is thinking hard about Pronger. Daigle has
shown an Attitude the latter part of this season many folks havne't liked,
and after coming back from his (second) multi-game suspension for being
stupid, he's really tanked in his performance. His stock is dropping like a
rock.

Also remember that a lot of teh "draft 1st" stuff comes from the assumption
he'll be traded to Quebec for lots of prospects. It's not clear that
Quebec would really be willing to pay a lot for him given his current
status. He's still first round, but I don't consider him a first pick lock
by any means at this point.

It's also possible that the Senators are posturing to try to bring down his
signing price, since Daigle has been taking some Lindros lessons during thos
suspensions.

No. Kariya won't go in the first three, for a very simple reason: he's not
leaving college, and I don't believe ANY of the expansion teams are going to
use a first for someone who won't be around for another year or two, not
when there is equally good (or almost as good) stuff available that can make
an immediate impact. San jose seems to be leaning heavily towards
Niedermayer for that reason. Kariya could go 6th or 7th, unless a team can
convince him to leave school early (which I doubt).

My cut on things as they stand today:

Quote:
>Draft Order
>-----------
>1) Ottawa (60% Daigle, if not, 40% Pronger)
>2) San Jose 80% Niedermayer, unless Ottawa skips Daigle. Then it's open.

        (it depends on if the Sharks can get a deal for him. I don't
        believe they draft him to keep him).

Quote:
>3) Tampa Bay (whoever Ottawa doesn't take, or maybe Koslov)
