Guess they think Stevie likes Swedes....
I've looked through those mocks a few times, and I feel as though their scouting info is outdated. Before the season began, Musil was projected as a early-mid first rounder and his stock quickly plummeted as the year progressed. At this point, I feel as though he's a definite early-mid second rounder who will be chosen around 38-45. It'd definitely be a reach to take a chance on a defensive defenseman in the first round, but this draft is so unpredictable that anything could happen.

Either Klefbom or Brodin would be incredible value at 27, and I'd be happy with either.
