Ovi, Keith off the board
3. Alex Ovechkin, Washington, W (Team Staal)
4. Duncan Keith, Chicago, D (Team Lidstrom)


Staal let his assistant Mike Green make this selection and that's when it became obvious who was next to come off the draft board. Alex Ovechkin became the third pick in the draft, a little later than he expected. He thought he'd be a late first-rounder.

Lidstrom similarly let Patrick Kane do the picking on this one, but it wasn't as obvious who he was going to pick. He chose, "My boy"....Duncan Keith.

WHA? We had to think it was going to be Toews, but Lidstrom went with the D here.
Quote of the Day

I've got a lot of experience and there's a lot of young guys. It's even making me excited a little more. It's kind of a new life. At my age, I feel like I know a lot of things what to do, but I just cannot do it anymore. It's a lot easier to tell them what to do because they've still got the legs and hands to do it. I just know things, but I cannot do them anymore.
