Re-drafting the League: Revealing picks 16-20!

So far, we've revealed the first half of the draft order for the CLS Re-drafting the League project. The first 15 is littered with a bunch of smaller markets and non-marquee teams that no one (read: the MSM) really cares about.

#1) Calgary Flames (Kent from Five Hole Fanatics/Matchsticks & Gasoline)
#2) Vancouver Canucks (Vancity Canuck)
#3) Tampa Bay Lightning (Cassie and/or Raw Charge)
#4) Dallas Stars (Defending Big D)
#5) Chicago Blackhawks (All Hawks - Clare)
#6) New York Islanders either Dominik or Chris Kontos
#7) Philadelphia Flyers (Paul Hinrichsen)
#8) Edmonton Oilers (Strange Deadfellows)
#9) Nashville Predators (Section 303)
#10) Atlanta Thrashers (Blueland Chronicle)
#11) St. Louis Blues (Laura of Wazzupwitchu/SLGT)
#12) Phoenix Coyotes (Five For Howling)
#13) Pittsburgh Penguins (Pensburgh)
#14) Washington Capitals (Storming the Crease)
#15) Columbus Blue Jackets Brennan

Fortunately, this evening's update gets to some really big important teams, plus Carolina and Minnesota. Gotta keep NBC happy, right?

#16) Detroit Red Wings (Sacrifice the Body)
#17) Los Angeles Kings (Rudy Kelly)
#18) Minnesota Wild Kontos or mystery guest?
#19) Carolina Hurricanes (Life and Times of a Caniac)
#20) New York Rangers (Scotty Hockey)

Tomorrow morning, we'll reveal picks 21-25, and then we'll cap off the evening with picks 26-30!

DAMMIT TO HELL

Just browsing through these posts, I couldn't help but notice that my beloved Ottawa Senators haven't got a spot in the picking order yet. Just bad luck, I thought, until I noticed that they weren't on your master list of teams. Do they not exist in this NHL? How sad! :(

I'm just going to assume I'm picking last.

@eyebleaf:

Might be the only time in our lifetime that the Leafs pick in the last spot...

No Avs... for shame

(Is this done fantasy style where 30 gets 2 picks in a row)

Still no Ducks...

Scotty Hockey said...

At least we come in the top 20 ... and of course, NHL.com said that the best-ever No. 20 pick was Fatso Mmmmaaarrrtttyyy. Dammit.

@ Jibblescribbits:

#30 Gets "sandwich" picks aka two picks in a row.

Joe actually proposed that the draft order go:

1-30, then 30-1 then 30-1 again. The jury's still out on that one. What do you say, folks?

@Meaghan

We're currently looking for a Sens rep, actually.

Well considering it's looking like I'm going to be between 20-30 I think that's a great idea.

But in all seriousness I like it. People who get shafted out of guys like Ovechkin, Crsoby etc should get a little more compensation than drafting 1st in the second round. It doesn't quite make up for it.
