In the effort to not let this blog be overrun by the Cycle like the Sedins Re-Draft, please refer to their website for overall updates. They have thankfully created an updates/rules page to make life easier. So it's 20 rounds, and we're almost thru the third round. The next Lightning pick in the fourth round comes at the end (snake order) with pick #118, closely followed by the 123rd pick in the fifth round, which may take place either Tuesday or Wednesday.
The two Lightning players that have been chosen so far are Vincent Lecavalier (Atlanta Thrashers - 10th overall, first round) and Martin St. Louis (New Jersey Devils - 40th overall, 10th in the second round).
Now that we know what's going, here is where the Lightning stand after three rounds:
|Round||Pick||Player||NHL Team||Position||Cap Hit|
|1||3||Henrik Lundqvist||New York Rangers||G||$6,875,000|
|3||63||Mark Streit||New York Islanders||D||$4,100,000|
Any suggestions for the next two picks are welcome. Please keep in mind that there is a $57 million salary cap. However, there are going to be just 20 rounds instead of 23 for a full roster - 12 forwards, 6 defensemen, and 2 goaltenders.
