Just completed - the most in depth mock draft on the planet up at THW. Okay, well maybe not on the planet. Heck, maybe not even in North America. is pretty in depth...and it is pretty awesome...maybe...

Some story lines:
- Oilers nab another Russian in the 1st rnd, filling a big team need, maybe even more improtant than Yakupov down the road.
- Flames draft 2 kids born in Calgary plus an offensive dynamo
- Habs draft prospect from la belle province
- Leafs draft son of enforcer
- So do Jets!
- Sens get an ice warrior
- Avs brings a big blueliner back home! (not that much of a shock).
- Devils cash in on Grigorenko situation take 2.
- Caps refurbish their Swedish prospect ranks

Link to result of the full mock draft:

Do they make the right selection, hypothetically speaking?
Two things if it were to play out like that: 1. I personally like Ristolainen a bit more than Zadorov, so I'd be taking him; and 2. I think that 10 would be a good spot to gamble on Nichushkin over a defenseman.
