Pretty good. I would say Fucale and Morrissey go a bit higher.
I would love Drouin on the Avs.
I'd re-do it like this
2.) Hartman (Murray doesn't like Russians+Hartman made the WJC camp roster. Should be easy here.)
Would not mind Shinkaruk one bit, but it sucks missing out on Barkov, Monahan, and Lindholm.
Personally I would much rather the leafs draft one of the following over Nurse.
- Curtis Lazar
- Nikita Zadorov (The kid is MASSIVE.)
I don't know what it is but the more I watch Zadorov the more I want him in the Blue and White.
from an Oiler point of view, it would actually make sense if they took Lindholm over Pulock only because they could finally solve the forever elusive 2nd line center problem and i get the feeling the Oilers may believe that with d-men like Klefbom, Musil and Marincin all coming within the next couple of years, they might be able to take a center...probably the only spot left up front that they haven't yet filled....just not convinced Sam Gagner is the long term answer for our 2nd line center needs. also, i firmly believe the Oil would take Mason Geertson with their pick in the 3rd round having known about him from when he was with the Oil Kings, though i too feel that they might take a goalie like Tristan Jarry or Spencer Martin in the 3rd this coming draft. not a bad list!
No way in hell the Sharks pick a goaltender. I like the Bjorkstrand pick though.
But I hope the habs gets better than the 29th pick, we need it! :cry:
no way sens come last. i would say somewhere 10-20
I saw Fitzgerald at the All-American Prospect Game and he was very good in that one(he was named MVP). Him at #68 could turn out to be an amazing steal.
I take Nurse over Zadorov because of Nurse offense, but i really like Zadorov and he could easily become a Top 10 pick in my opinion.
Plus if you look at it you have #29, #32 and #34. Ending up with de la Rose, Martin and Klimchuck is not that bad either.
Solid list, I'd be very happy with Hagg that late in the draft. However I think there's a very good chance we take Lipon in the 2nd round. Gillis has started drafting overagers quite often after the 1st round, an Lipon seems like an ideal candidate for us to take.
From a Yotes POV, it's not bad and would be happy to wind up with #11. If Lazar's still on the board, I imagine they snag him and keep he and Henrik Samuelsson together.
I'd also probably go with Stephen Harper with that 3rd pick instead of Luke Johnson. All in all though, the Yotes would come away pretty satisfied with this mock up.
If the Flyers end up with Zadorov and Roy, I'm a very happy Flyers fan. What a boost to the pipeline those two defenders would be.....
Hartman has first round talent. If he's there I seriously doubt the Ducks pass on him. Even if he's a bit undersized.
pretty good from an Oiler point of view....Lindholm is fine, and though we could take almost anyone in the 2nd round, center Viktor Crus Rydberg and big Tyler Hill are who i would take if they were still there, as for the 3rd round, i'd gamble on Oil King goalie Tristan Jarry....i have seen him play many times, very talented and ultra smooth in between the pipes.
I love that Lazar is falling everywhere, good teams would love a chance to take this kid anywhere from 15-30.
Him falling IMO, is strictly coming from a boxscore scouting sentiment. When you watch him play, you can see why his team is good.
If he wanted he could go end to end whenever, but he's in love with the game and wants to win.
Shane Doan-type game who can play C or RW.
Not a big fan of the Vancouver picks, especially the goalie in 3rd round.
I'd say they'd be more likely to go with Jason Dickinson or JT Compher in the 1st...probably take a Wennberg or Bowey (even though we NEVER seem to go to the WHL...our own backyard).
3rd round, I could see them taking Subban if your draft played out like this.
With 90 names here, it's tough to see who you missed, but all in all good mock.
