The King and Briere go next
11. Henrik Lundqvist, New York Rangers, G (Team Staal)
12. Danny Briere, Philadelphia, C/W (Team Lidstrom)


Eric Staal had this pick teed up. Just after hearing his brother, Marc, call him "classless" for not picking him first overall and instead going with Ward, Eric stands at the podium and said, "Our next pick, from the New York Rangers....

"Henrik Lundqvist."

Marc must be crushed.

Lidstrom went with Briere, allowing Pat Kane to do the picking. No wonder Kane thinks Briere is a "heck of a player." They play a lot of the same type of game.
Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
