Beyond Crosby: The 2005 Draft

Believe it or not, the 2005 NHL Draft is scheduled to be more than one pick long. So here are International Scouting Service's Top 15 prospects (with two darkhorses thrown in for good measure) and here are Bob McKenzie's top 30 prospects. The two sources have a similar top 6 (same players, slightly different order after #1) and then things get a little funky.

We'll bring more draft coverage as the information becomes available, and once we know where the Caps will pick maybe we can guess as to who will be available and who would make sense to draft.

Update: Apparently ESPNews is going to show live segments of the NHL draft lottery between 4 and 4:30 p.m. ET on Friday.

Update: Hockey's Future has a great "2005 Draft Center" with tons of great resources. Those guys really do a good job.
