My 61 Pick 2012 NHL Mock Draft
 
Any thoughts?

1st thought was Dumba over Murray?

Marc the Habs Fan 04-13-2012 03:17 PM

I like your 1st round, but I don't like either Habs 2nd rounder.

I would pick any of Frk, Bozon, Matheson, Laughlin instead of Lundberg.

Probably would gamble on Nieves or Marcantuoni instead of a 19 year old at 53.

WJG 04-13-2012 03:18 PM

I like Faksa, but I have a feeling the Jets are going to take a defenseman. If Reinhart, Ceci or Trouba were still on the board (like in your mock draft), I would think the Jets would take one of them.

Love Tanner Pearson in the second round though :yo:

WJG 04-13-2012 03:22 PM

Also, I can't see the Lightning taking Subban, Dansk AND Makarov.

Although drafting 3 goalies with their first 5 picks would be awesome :laugh:

I was thinking that. But Emil Lundberg is a massive and strong forward. I think his shot and his physicality makes him really attractive to a small Canadiens team.

I think I accidentally a something. I was moving players around.

Wouldn't our 58th pick be higher?

Alberta tough 04-13-2012 03:28 PM

Nice list, some of the players are listed under the wrong countries.

It's Boston's pick from Toronto.

I know but shouldn't it be higher or does that depend on where Boston finishes in the playoffs?

ChillyPalmer 04-13-2012 03:31 PM

I'm not in the business of guarantees, but I guarantee Murray will not fall outside the top 5.

3 Minute Minor 04-13-2012 03:32 PM

Three picks I liked that I want to point out:
Henrik Samuelsson - Philadelphia
-First off cuz he has prior ties to Pittsburgh, second because he'd fit in well there.

Ville Pokka - Edmonton
-Simply think it's a good fit

Brandon Whitney - New Jersey
-Scott Wedgewood can't be their only prospect and I think Whitney would be a solid addition.

I don't like saying, "that guy won't be picked by that team" because it's just an easy way to be right. Absolutely anyone can say that and they'll be right most of the time seeing as there's 30 teams picking...

I noticed that too. Mental exhaustion. Like Vail is American, etc.

When I typed a CHL team I almost always typed Canada next to it.

I noticed that after I made Daniil Zharkov a Canadian :laugh:

I tried catching my mistakes. Oh well.

I wish I could edit posts :/ I'd change a few things.

Nice to see that you give more credit to Girgensons than any other mock draft compiler. He'll be a good NHLer on a team who will be smart and patient enough to wait till he matures a bit more in Vermont.

Yes this is based on standings. #29 and #30 is guaranteed to be from different conferences too.

No idea how Vermont pulled that one off either.

Dubuque was a great team this year.

Vasilevski to the Blues doesn't make a ton of sense to me. They do still have a good young goalie in Jake Allen. You also have Tampa taking Subban and Makarov, which is interesting. I actually like the idea of them doing it although if I were them, I'd take Vasilevski over Subban. Besides that, pretty good list. Probably a lot better than the one I would make :)

E: Just realized Tampa takes 3 goalies. Maybe that's their strategy to actually stop pucks. Put Stamkos and 2 others out and then 3 goalies in net :laugh:

Gentle Jake Virtanen 04-13-2012 03:37 PM

I think Brett Kulak may even go higher than you have him. His stock has gone way up in the last few months.
First round is really good, but I'd bet dollars to donuts that Reinhart goes before Cici.
Also like the Koekkoek pick at 21. Most mocks I've seen have him outside the first round, but I know someone will take a chance on him in the first round - he projects to be a great player.

Yeah if all 3 of those d-men are still available at 9, they'll take one of those before Faksa.

IIRC, his EJHL team, Green Mountain Glades is (?) located somewhere near Vermont, and Zemgus was very impressed by the organization and programme and he was glad to commit to them.

BTW, small correction, Slepyshev isn't at Penza anymore.

irunthepeg 04-13-2012 03:45 PM

I think Columbus taking Grigorenko makes it way easier for the Habs to take Galchenyuk. That way if he doesn't work out later on in life, the blame game can't be as harsh whereas if Grigorenko is available and they skip out on him and he turns out to be better there will be more facepalms.

arsmaster 04-13-2012 04:16 PM

Tom Wilson to the Canucks has become an annoying mock draft "go-to" call...

I dont like it and I don't see it happening.

Especially with Matt Finn as the next pick...I doubt Vancouver passes on Finn if he's there.

DuckJet 04-13-2012 05:11 PM

Ducks: Murray and Frk?
Jets: Faksa and Pearson?

:handclap::handclap::handclap::handclap::handclap:

I'd be very happy if the Leafs could get Forsberg and Skjei, although I'd be surprised if Skjei is still there in round 2.
