With Sidney Crosby firmly entrenched as the Penguins' top pick in the NHL Entry Draft on Saturday, the intrigue when the day began centered on the No. 2 pick, belonging to the Mighty Ducks. Rumors of a trade for the No. 2 pick ran rampant throughout the league as teams talked back and forth in hopes of jockeying up to a higher position. As the draft began, a collective hush came across the floor, but it appeared that the big trade that was looming was not to be. It was an interesting first round as there were more players taken from the state of Minnesota (five) than the entire country of Russia (zero). We also saw four separate trades as teams moved up and down to find the players that fit them best.
