The WHA will conduct its draft…Who would you take #1?
The WHA will hold a player draft July 17-18, allowing each team to draft 30 NHL/AHL Free Agents on July 17 and another 30 Entry Level players on July 18. The Entry Level draft will be for players drafted but not signed in the 2002, 2003 and 2004 drafts and will also be open to players who turn 17 by January 1, 2005.
So you have the #1 pick on both days. Which Free Agent do you chose on day one, and which prospect do you take #1?
If it was me, I’d probably go with Kovalev. The man has outstanding talents, and could really flurish in the WHA. A close second would be Kariya, fallowed by Demitra.
And the next day is who do you consider to be the greatest prospect? Ovechkin? or Crosby?
