Velociraptor's Annual Mock Draft - 2013 - Drafting Thread
 
RULES:

ON THE CLOCK: Los Angeles (RR) until May 15th, 9:03AM EST

1. 1 team per poster, and you must have 500 posts to your credibility, 300 if registered user. (**NOTE** If you can promise me that you will stay active throughout the entire duration of this draft, I will let you participate, but you will be on a shorter leash than other GM's, because usually some newer HF members tend to lose interest or disappear, we want to keep this to a minimum.)
2. Standard draft board, seven rounds, two hundred and ten selections
3. There is no trading involved this year.
4. We will be following a 8 hour clock, if you miss your turn you are skipped, you will be given an additional 12 hours to make that pick while the draft resumes. If you fail to make a selection in this time window, you will be assigned a consensus selection (best player available) by me or another GM, it will need to be confirmed by one other manager. If it is a recurring incident (without an excuse) I have no choice but to kick you from the draft. We want to keep this at a fast & fun pace so we all get our share of drafting. I will consider having a window overnight (something like 12AM-6AM ET) where the clock stops, but I will have to shorten the clock because we have about two months to draft 210 players.
5. Drafting from the 2013 Entry Draft Class (Jones, MacKinnon, etc.)
6. The order will be picked from the NHL standings to the night prior to start time, this means you have to consider potential movement up and down when dealing draft picks.
7. Any trades that happen in the NHL from now until the start date will NOT affect the draft board. What the draft board is at right now, is the one we follow. (i.e. NY Rangers first round selection still belongs to Columbus, but any trade that would happen over the next month would not change the draft board) But all trades as of the trade deadline are taken into account.
8. You MUST notify the GM drafting after you via personal message, I cannot stress this enough. This is by far the most important process of the mock draft. We all have lives, so were not always looming the thread. Please try your very hardest to remember. And guys, even if your just dawdling around the board, feel free to drop the GM a notice. It's always appreciated so we can keep a healthy flow here. Try and acknowledge in your draft post that you have notified the next manager on the clock.
9. HAVE FUN! Nothing too serious, it's all for a good time, no one get too serious. We all want this to be a fun experience so everybody has a good time. These are always a blast and last somewhere from a month and a half to two months. So let's have some fun here guys. For some information regarding draft prospects, Central Scouting Services (most reliable free rankings IMO) http://www.nhl.com/ice/draftprospectbrowse.htm has recently posted their Mid-Season rankings, and you can check out a couple of mock drafts at http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=663752 and http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=663743.
10. This isn't a GM game, it is a mock draft. So I won't be focusing on free agency, re-signings or buyouts. Just drafting prospects, you are able to do as you wish (re-sign, etc.) but you won't need my clarification and such as it is not the point of this draft.

All the best guys, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to drop me a personal message or post on the thread, I'd be obliged to answer any of your questions, Thanks!

First of all, we'd like to thank Velociraptor for all of his hard work in hosting the draft. The Florida Panthers are a young up and coming team and will look forward to a lot of success this season.

Without further ado, with the 1st overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, the :panthers select from the Halifax Mooseheads of the QMJHL:


C Nathan MacKinnon

^good pick and a logical one. would have been surprised to see the Panthers take Jones.

I don't think its a bad pick, but I would have preffered Jones just because he's far and away BPA. Going to be a franchise player and is already nhl ready, Pietrangelo, Karlsson, Doughty, he's going to be as good as these guys and could be better. They also have Huberdeau and a lot of depth at C (yes I know Hubby can play the wing). But not a bad pick just not what I would pick (:

ManByng 04-22-2013 08:10 AM

^yup, just had a look at Hockey's Future and noticed that Florida has some very good forward prospects, but no high end defensive prospects, so i suppose they'll likely take Jones, especially if he's the BPA, but who knows? hopefully he'll turn out better than when they drafted Jovo or JayBo.

I think I disagree here. I don't think you can say any of the guys at the top of this class is far and away better than the others.

ManByng 04-22-2013 09:39 AM

^and that's the $1000 US dollar question isn't it? do the Panthers take the universal BPA, which appears to be Jones, or do they take one of the other "big 3" players in MacKinnon or Drouin?

Velociraptor 04-22-2013 09:53 AM

Guys not to be rude, but could we also not discuss the names of undrafted players? Thanks. Just so its much less of a surprise for when they are selected.

Also, since Colorado has not responded, I'll have to go ahead and select for them.

:avs

With the second overall selection in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, Colorado selects from Portland in the Western Hockey League, Defenseman Seth Jones

http://lowetide.ca/blog/wp-content/u...seth-jones.jpg

DaveG (CAR) has been notified.

ManByng 04-22-2013 10:53 AM

^absolutely! your draft, your rules....i guess it's just not a well kept secret among fans who the top 3 will likely be. :)

Disagree. I don't like how HF rates prospects so I think you should still consider Kuliokov and Gudbranson as part of their future. Then do don't forget the rest of their future d-core (Matheson, Petrovic, Bengtsson, Robak (?))

But they do lack a #1 center. Tons of talented wingers + Bjugstad (talented but still unsure of being a #1 centerman).

Mackinnon is the right call.

DaveG 04-22-2013 11:30 AM

ugh, really don't want to since it's the absolute last thing the Canes need long term, but BPA here:

:canes select, from the Halifax Mooseheads, W Jonathan Drouin

i can't wait to see who they actually pick!

but now they have trade options with Drouin aboard. they could send a winger in a trade for another positional player. good depth actually.

With the 4th overall pick, the Tampa Bay Lightning are proud to select, from Sweden, Elias Lindholm.

"We had Lindholm 2nd on our overall board and we feel he's the perfect long-term replacement for Martin St. Louis. He can play center but he's also a very good winger with elite vision, playmaking and skating. He'll look very nice next to Steven Stamkos for the next 15 years."

The Calgary Flames proudly select Valeri Nichushkin from Chelyabinsk Traktor. We are impressed with both his size and skill and can only hope he becomes a viable replacement for Jarome Iginla in the future. :flames

While I personally like Barkov, not overly surprised because Lindholm is super skilled and slick; he has huge offensive upside but also extremely smart in the other zones as well.

I know Lindholm is really a very good player, and I expected him to go in top 10 or top 5, but I didn't see Tampa taking him, definitely
didn't think they'd pass on Nichushkin. I was hoping I'd get him at 10 lol. Just hope no one takes my backup pick :p

as good as Lindholm is, and if the Oilers end up picking 6th, they could take him and thats fine, but if the Oil fumble their way to 4th overall, no question they'll take Barkov. he'll fill the so called "2nd line center" job very well, and is talented enough to become the #1 center with the Oilers. he's also the "big, talented center" the Oil have been searching for since probably Jason Arnott.

Huberdeau doesn't count? :p

Sure he's playing the wing right now, but that doesn't mean he can't play as an excellent top notch center.

Also while Kulikov, Gudbranson, Matheson etc are all good Dmen and good prospects, they aren't even remotely close to the level of Jones. Jones is a 1A first pairing D, Kulikov (imo their best D prospect) projects as a 1C If he can play better, and is a solid 2A. Don't get me wrong Kulikov is a good player but not on the level of Jones. And we have a lot more 2nd/3rd line center prospects than we do 1st/2nd pairing D prospects.

As for Jones being BPA, well I feel he's A) the most nhl ready in the sense I feel he'll excel with any team that picks him and I don't think I can say the same for the others B) He's strong offensively and very strong defensively, I dont think the others are quite as good two way players.

Lindholm, in my rankings, goes around 4-6.

The Philadelphia Flyers are happy to select, from the Don Mills Flyers & Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds, D Darnell Nurse

http://l.yimg.com/a/p/sp/editorial_i...greyhounds.jpg

Between already playing for a Flyers team, comparing to Chris Pronger, filling a huge need, playing for a junior team that the Flyers own two prospects from(so they've seen him a lot), and being the nephew of Donovan McNabb, the pick only makes sense.

Joey Moss 04-22-2013 05:37 PM

Nurse would be a perfect fit with the Flyers.
