...And the First Overall Selection of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft Belongs To...



The Edmonton Oilers

The Oilers have never had the first overall selection.  The odds were in their favor, as they had nearly a 50% chance to land the pick.  No one will know if Taylor Hall of Tyler Seguin will become the first pick until the draft in June.

The rest of the top five fell exactly as the odds would have indicated.

2. Boston Bruins
3. Florida Panthers
4. Columbus Blue Jackets
5. New York Islanders

TSN interviewed both Taylor and Tyler, the leading candidates to be selected first.  One interesting tidbit: It was mentioned that Taylor Hall wears number 4 in honor of  Bobby Orr.   He now has a 50/50 shot of being a Bruin courtesy of the Phil Kessel trade.
