D for 2012 Draft

With Florida doing comparatively well this year, they will (hopefully) give us this years 2nd and not next. I cannot see either Florida or LA getting past the 2nd round (if LA make them) of the playoffs, and I cannot see us doing so either. If so that would give us three draft picks (hopefully) in the top 50-55

If so, approximate ranges.

Our First: 18-26 range
LA's Second: 42-52 range
Florida's Second: 46-52 range

Taking a lot of mock drafts, here are the D men that could be available in first. (which is most likely what we will, and should, take.)

1st round pick.

Cody Ceci
Slater Koekkok
Derrick Pouliot
Griffin Reinhart
Matt Finn
Olli Maata
Jordan Schmaltz
Nick Ebert
Michael Matheson

Looking at that, it could be possible we get Ebert with our first, (can see him becoming amazing) Maata at 42~, (he would have to fall slightly.. but fingers crossed) then say Ville Pokka or one of the other 5-10 talented D there (or just draft BPA) at 46~?

And who does everyone want (who is likely to be there at 18-26.) In the first round. As can imagine a lot of you don't want Ebert as we need more size and D (plus he is a NJ devils fan!)

I would love Griffin Reinhart, but doubt he falls past 18.
