Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Cole - he'll be gettin points every night playin on the oilers.
Satan - playin winger for crosby so he'll be having a better season
Both the kostitsyn's
Stillman - always produces
Patrick Sharp - the man at SHG's
Some decent sleepers and/or "scary picks" that will be available would be:
Simon Gagne from Philly - Concussion maniac, but if he stays healthy, hes an awesome player and he'll be on Richards and Briere's line.
Alexander Semin - reoccurring ankle injury I think.
Martin Havlat - Just about every injury you can think of, lol.
Peter Forsberg - Not signed to any team yet. Worst Toe is sports history :)
Tim Conolly - Buffalo's second line center when he's healthy.
Just to name a couple.

Nylander is rated pretty low in the draft rankings, He could be productive this year...
R.J. Umberger could also have a good year with his new team especially
Kyle Okposo could be the steal of the year...
I had my draft yesterday - so, i can tell you a few guys that went later then expected...
This league is an 18 team league - so keep that in mind when lookin at round numbers
5th - Sakic - still capable of 80+ pts and tonnes of pp time. He went 90th overall...i think he was a steal.
6th - Selanne - He's not signed yet which will scare off a lot of people - but hes been at ducks camp, they have the cap space now, so, he should be in by game time. Dont let the age fool you, hes still a 80-90pt guy. Particularily playin with getzlaf.
11th - horcoff - Was just under a pt. per game last year - but was injured. The injury will cause many people to overlook him. While there are a number of quality centres out there - horcoff past the 8th round is a huge steal.
15th - Samsonov - Big upside on samsonov - he showed he can play in carolina. He's incredibly streaky - but if you can get him past the 10th round - he could have a huge season for you.
23rd - Berard (if you like takin risks) Probably dont need to say much here. If you are lookin for a last pick in the draft - this is who i would recommend. No one wants him, but as soon as the season starts (assuming hes signed) everyone will be jumpin to get him away from you.
And there are a number of new players expected to play big roles. All these guys are unproven, but are penciled in on the top 2 lines of their respective teams.
Brian Boyle (LA)
Patric Hornqvist (NSH)
Fabian Brunsstrom (DAL)
Mickeal Boedker (PHX)
Kovalev is not a sleeper dude! Expect him to go early. Bergeron maybe, although he's probably on a lot of people's radar. Same with Marleau. How deep is your league? Watch for some of the rookies (Stamkos, Turris, Oksopo) as well as veterans like Brunette and Bertuzzi.

Kovalev is pre ranked in the 80's. I see him as a top 40 player... In my mind for his draft position he's a sleeper.
I liked when Gange was in the 300's now he's like 54. It's screwed up all my sneaky picks.
