The first round is slowly moving forward as we are still working out some of the kinks in an exercise that no one has ever done like this before. Cycle Like The Sedins has done an incredible job coordinating the efforts of 30 blogs and websites, launching a forum and message board for the draft, and trying to find some way to regulate it all.
Once we've got everything settled we'll have a set schedule for the draft. For now, here are the current results of the draft:
|1.||Alex Ovechkin||Calgary Flames|
|2.||Sidney Crosby||Vancouver Canucks|
Tampa Bay Lightning
|4.||Evgeni Malkin||Dallas Stars|
|5.||Jonathan Toews||Chicago Blackhawks|
|6.||Nicklas Lidstrom||New York Islanders|
|7.||Pavel Datsyuk||Philadelphia Flyers|
|8.||Zach Parise||Edmonton Oilers|
|9.||Ryan Getzlaf||Nashville Predators|
|10.||Vincent Lecavalier||Atlanta Thrashers|
|11.||Roberto Luongo||St. Louis Blues|
|12.||Mike Green||Phoenix Coyotes|
|13.||Ilya Kovalchuk||Pittsburgh Penguins|
I also saw a bunch of you guys talking about working together to figure out our strategy moving forward, which is awesome because this is a community exercise for Defending Big D. If you do want to do something like that in more detail, feel free to create a FanPost to discuss which direction we should go with our next pick.
