But exactly what the Lightning won by lifting Lord Stanley's Cup last....

The Tampa Bay Lightning will pick 30th in next week's entry draft.....

EDIT: I'm live blogging right now and the biggest surprise of this draft so far is Florida picking 29th... But then again they have had so many opportunities int eh top 10 the last few years....

Nothing else is shocking to me right now. San Jose not being picked yet (??) is a big win on their part. Same with the WIngs.

THE NEW YORK RANGERS LOST THE #1 PICK! THE RANGERS HAVE LOST! Sorry for the exuberance but with all the "fix is in" talk (even coming from me) it was surprising as hell to see this.

3 Canadian clubs in the top ten - guaranteed (their order has not been determined yet)....

Down to LA or Pittsburgh. I can't fault the Penguins getting the #1 pick -- they were the reason people watche dthe NHL during it's surge in popularity. The Anaheim franchise getting him is also not too bad -- it's the LA market after all. Just as long as they change their name PLEASE.

The Penguins win the right to call Sidney Crosby's name next week. Not that they don't have the right to trade the #1 draft pick...
