Day 1 of the draft is in the books, and there was quite a bit of galaxy braining, and not much in the way of the exciting trades we were promised. You can read the recap of yesterday's Sens pick, Carter Yakemchuk, here.

Day 2 doesn't come with quite the same hype, but obviously there's still lots of good players left on the board. Ary did some excellent in-depth looks at the forwards and defencemen who could be going in the first few rounds today. As it stands, Ottawa has picks 39, 104, 112, 117, and 136. We'll have instant analysis of every pick Ottawa makes here throughout the day, as well as a recap of all the picks on Monday.

What are your thoughts on Ottawa's choices? Did anything surprise you? Let's talk about it in the comments!
