Nash off the board, Lidstrom gets a goalie
9. Rick Nash, Columbus, W (Team Staal)
10. Tim Thomas, Boston, G (Team Lidstrom)


Just after Duthie finished lauding Nash, one of the better performers in recent All-Star Game history, Team Staal listened and went with the Blue Jackets center. Green made the pick for Team Staal and swears they had this pick made before Duthie went through his convincing diatribe about Nash.

Team Lidstrom finally has a goalie in the fifth round. It also has the best in the NHL so far this season. Thomas, picked by fellow Vermont Catamount Marty St. Louis, is the second goalie off the board behind Ward. Each team will have to use two of their next five picks on goalies.
Quote of the Day

It's very special, obviously; there is draft day and then there's the day that you sign your first deal. It's been a crazy couple of weeks and I'm very honored to be able to do that."
