Yotes won't draft another d-man.

LatvianTwist 03-22-2013 10:08 PM

Love this for Dallas.

They were one of the hardest to try and pick for. I couldn't figure out who would be the "right pick" so I just went BPA. Who would you want at that spot??

Juxtaposer 03-22-2013 11:12 PM

Not bad, but there are a couple significant issues.

The first is that there is no way Buffalo takes Shinkaruk over Monahan. I know they're knee-deep in young centers, but what they're really really missing is an elite defensive center with significant offensive value. Monahan fits them like a glove. They could just move Ennis back to wing, and go Grigorenko-Hodgson-Monahan down the middle.

Second is that I highly doubt Phoenix drafts Pulock over Wennberg, Gauthier, or Lazar. Wennberg fits their needs very well. He's a do-it-all player who's got size and skating and is also a countryman of OEL. Gauthier has tons of potential. Lazar is a prototypical Yotes forward who's a teammate of Henrik Sammuelsson. They need a forward pretty badly.

Thirdly, Marco Mueller would be a terrible pick for Columbus there. Kid has nothing that's convinced me he's a first rounder, and Columbus is swimming in defensive prospects.

Also, I doubt Duclair goes in the first round, nor Petan.

And as a personal gripe, I really just don't have a good feeling about Domi. I'm pro-Sharks taking a forward, but at that position I'd take Morrissey. Or even Lazar.

Otherwise, good work. Particularly, I thought Erne to Nashville, Zadorov to Carolina, and Mantha to Jersey were astute picks.

Buffalo did just that with Girgensons last year. A potential 2nd-line center who plays a defensive game but has offensive talent. I think they need a winger more than another center, as they already have Ennis, Hecht, Hodgson, Grigorenko, Girgensons, Nelson.. compared to Vanek, Foligno, Leino.

With Phoenix, as I said in the post above yours, I had no idea who to choose for them so I just went with BPA. I'll remember that they need a forward for my next mock.

For Columbus, I feel like despite their defensive pool, they should use 1 of their 1sts on a dman. CSS has Mueller at 12th for NA skaters, and Bob McKenzie's list has him 21st, so he seems to have done something to be viewed as a 1st rounder. It's your opinion though, and I get that.

Thanks for the feedback!!

I could see the Ducks going for Anthony Duclair :) . However if Kerby Rychel is still on the board , I wouldn't rule them out on taking him instead.

Summers is about to walk. Murphy may never walk again. Pulock is a fantastic defenseman. No forward at that spot will be helping us front for a few years anyhow. I'd say Ryan Pulock would be a fantastic selection at that spot, regardless of our desperation for scoring forwards.

HockeySensible 03-23-2013 02:12 PM

Really like Lehkonen at #30 for Chicago.

Pip 03-23-2013 03:35 PM

love Lazar for the Nucks

TheKingSlayer 03-24-2013 02:53 PM

Leafs are not drafting a goalie in the first round. Its not happening.

AwesomePanthers 03-24-2013 03:27 PM

MacKinnon to Florida, LOVE it!

It's our biggest problem right now... Look at what we have in net. Reimer who's inconsistent and injury prone, and Scrivens who can't handle a damn rebound. Unless we can get Luongo by the deadline, which I doubt happens and I don't want to happen, we're not going to improve.

Lazarrr 03-24-2013 07:55 PM

Love Hartman to the Sens. Never did I think this team would be picking 25th, I wonder if it stays like that throughout the season.

I'm not supposed to say this since I'm a Leafs fan, but I think you will. Now, I don't think you'll get the 25th pick at the draft since that has to do with playoffs and all, but Ottawa should only become better as the season goes since players will be coming back.

No way Drouin falls to #4 for the Flyers. He's a top 3 pick and i think teams will be more inclined to pick him over Barkov. I think even though Calgary has a team need at C, Drouin would be too good to pass up. Jones, Mackinnon and Drouin are pretty interchangeable depending on what each teams needs are. I agree that Florida would pick Mackinnon 1st considering they have a few good young defensemen in Kulikov and Gudbranson and a good young winger in Huberdeau. Colorado would most likely go for Jones. Calgary would be harder to predict. Flyers would likely do whatever possible to get the 1st or 2nd pick to grab Jones, but if they ended up picking at 4 in this scenario and jones was off the board i think they'd go BPA or trade the pick for multiple 1sts and grab a defenseman and a winger.

other notes:
i don't think Nurse falls to #9.
i don't think Frederik Gauthier goes that high.
i don't think the Coyotes take defenseman.
i don't think Meuller goes that high.

the rest looks pretty plausible though.

TheJuxtaposer is absolutely right about Buffalo.

Girgensons isn't even playing center in the AHL yet and there is no guarantee he makes it as a center in the NHL or that his offense develops at the pro level. Monahan would be a perfect fit for us. Besides that, Ennis is probably better suited to wing in the long run, Hecht is long gone after this year and Grigs showed he is still a few years out. Monahan is potentially NHL ready, has the offensive chops for a eventual top 6 center AND has excellent defensive skills. Monahan would be the pick, no question about it.

Fine with taking Fucale. We need someone like him in the system.

I agree with you concerning the Flyers at four and it would not surprise me to see them select Nurse.

This...

Kerby Rychel is the typical big bodied player with skill the Ducks love! Plus he was a local Cali kid!

They will draft the BPA regardless of position.

I could see it happening, especially if it's the pick is in the 2nd half of the 1st round.

If that's the case, I want Hagg.

I'm not saying that non-lottery Swedish defensemen (Karlsson, OEL, Brodin, Klefbom) are always awesome, but non-lottery Swedish defenseman are always awesome :sarcasm:

Irish Eric 04-02-2013 10:10 PM

The Leafs will not draft a goalie in the first round! Every expert has them taking a centre. Do some research and stop ruining all your mock drafts. That is all.

Irish Eric 04-02-2013 10:14 PM

Why do you keep mocking a goalie to the Leafs? It will never happen every expert in every legit mock draft have them taking a centre. Do some research Fucale is a joke. Give me Lazar or Horvat I bet you want the Leafs to trade for Kipper as well.
