HFBoards Mock Draft 2013
 
Don't know if this has been done before, but it's a long lockout so I decided I'd try it. I ran a lottery simulation a while back and came up with a draft order which can be seen here. I decided that instead of coming up with a mock draft myself I would have the fans of each team vote on their pick. I'll post the collective results once every fanbase has voted.

The Penguins have the #10 pick. Thus far, Mackinnon, Barkov, Jones, Monahan, Drouin, Lindholm, Shinkaruk, Pulock and Ristolainen have been selected. Who would you take with the 10th overall pick?

JTG 12-20-2012 12:33 PM

Hopefully we take a Russian forward so the "flashy Euro winger" conglomerate can shut the **** up finally.

Steve Holt 12-20-2012 01:35 PM

Zadorov would be a sob to play against, something our D needs. But... voted for Nichuskin. The pool could use a forward.

Darth Vitale 12-20-2012 02:23 PM

Lehkonen FTW

Fills positional need.

Finnish Elite league.

Good skills based on reports.

Two-way based on reports.

And we need a Finn on this team. Especially one with a name as awesome as this one.

I voted for Domi. He plays for London, which is a fantastic organization, is a good, 2-way winger and would give us a dynamic B-C-D line. And why would you vote Lazar, he's a center.

Darth Vitale 12-20-2012 02:28 PM

Domi is no Lehkonen

Not voting until I can do a little more homework. Domi and Nichushkin are two of my favorites but a guy like Mantha is really sneaking under the radar. He has that Rick Nash/ James Neal vibe to him. Big body, good skater, good hand skills and a nasty shot.

Dangles78 12-20-2012 02:51 PM

It has to be Valeri Nichushkin. I could see a case for Lazar/Domi, but Nichuskin is the BPA and also fills the organizational need of a big, skilled winger with elite potential. Can't ask for more than that.

Really can't go wrong with a pick in this draft though...it's looking like a good one.

If that scouting report is true, and if the Pens get him, I don't even know. Finish the sentence for me.

SprootsMasterFlex 12-20-2012 03:45 PM

Mario is good friends with Max's dad, Tie Domi.

I say the Pens stick with what they're familiar with.

Max Domi plays with two of them in London (Harrington and Maatta).

So yeah...we'll probably draft him.

Domi and Zadorov plays with Maatta and Harrington in London

Morrissey plays with Ruopp in Prince Albert

Mantha plays with Zlobin in Val d'Or

Nurse plays with goalie Matt Murray in Sault Ste Marie

I think that's it? So if you use that system. Domi or Zadorov would be a good pick.

penguins2946* 12-20-2012 06:35 PM

Either would be great, between Zadorov and Domi, but I'm going with Domi. What I would love to do is to trade one of our D prospects to the team that is going to draft Zadorov. So we would get both :D

However, that being said, if the Pens do trade for the 11th pick or so, I'd definitely want them to draft Nichushkin and Domi. I'd love Zadorov though. It's so hard to decide.

Am I allowed to change my vote? I want to change to Nichushkin.

What about a Danish winger? If we pick Bjorkstrand from Portland we get A. skilled European winger B. Winterhawk in the first round C. someone drafted "too early"

That's really something to excite and upset everyone all at once there.

Milliardo 12-21-2012 02:00 AM

Zadarov.

Steve Holt 12-21-2012 07:29 AM

Just watched clips of Anthony Mantha. I'd definitely pick him if the Pens end up in the mid-low 20s (which is more likely).

If there is no season, 10th is almost als likely as 25th, it all comes down to luck.

Okay. My bad.

Milliardo 12-21-2012 08:14 AM

Well IF there is a season, you are probably right. At least I hope so, because that means we played a good season.

Tasty Biscuits 12-21-2012 08:29 AM

In that case, meh. 30th or bust.

Le Magnifique 66 12-21-2012 12:36 PM

Domi would be a sweet pick up. Love his game was impressed with him at the memorial cup last year

DKQ 12-24-2012 12:38 AM

After a very close vote, the Penguins have decided to go with Max Domi. Thank you to everyone who shared their opinion, I will be posting the full results in the Prospect forum once I have collected votes from all 30 teams.
