As loyal readers of James Mirtle's From the Rink, you already know that the 2009 SBN NHL Mock Draft is well underway and that the Caps are nearly on the clock. We'll be submitting our pick to Mirtle later this evening, but want your help in making it. Below is a quick look at some of the best players available who may be available at 24th (unfortunately packaging the Caps' pick and the rights to Shaone Morrisonn to move up wasn't an option) and a poll. Whichever prospect has the most votes by the time our pick is due will be "the Caps'" pick. Simple enough, right?
Here, then, are many of the top prospects left on the SBN draft board (click on the player for his NHL.com Draft Prospect Card, and for more on some of these kids, be sure to read DMG's Draft Primer) - whom should the Caps take?
