We already have a soft, talented player in Comrie. Olesz or Tukonen is where its at, we will nab at least one and both are great prospects.

If the Caps manage Ovechkin, and two of Fransson, Hedman, Smid, and Soderberg, I'll wiz my pants.

There you go mates. What do you think? I have read everyone elses mocks as well as several of the ranking rags and here is my best guess.

The Canes GM has said that Schwarz wouldn't slip past them but that he doesn't see him as being there. I reckon that means he will take him if available.


After the first 13, I think the rest would be late first (at best) to mid second (likely) during an average draft year based on what I have read about them. I don't reckon most of the back 17 first rounders to be as good as last years second rounders but, I am basing that opinion on the nonsense that I have read in the papers so take it with a grain.

I wanted to gamble with a couple of picks and that is one of them.

I also moved Chipchura to the Habs. I know that he would be EXACTLY the kind of player that I would want for the team if I were Gainey but, don't know if he will be there when they pick and also, am not any bloody good at this stuff anyways so there you are.


I left out a couple of teams and many scenarios that I fancy will move up in my mock but here you go.


Thats all I will go on for now as I believe you lot will set me true on allot of these.

Cheers again.
This is the mock where I didn't gamble on the picks like the other one where I did. Like I said.

gotta disagree with Schwarz to Carolina if even one of Schremp and Wolski are available. Accually, I disagree with everyone that thinks Carolina will pick a goalie in the first or early second anytime soon. Don't read too much into the GM comments either, I think it's exactly the same thing JR did last year. Trying to get a team to jump a few spots to take him, so that they have a better chance of landing their guy.

I agree. The reason I fancied the Canes taking Schwarz is simply because he is the best player available at that spot. I don't believe that they would keep him or, that if they do take him that it would mean that they would be moving another goalie prospect to make room for him.

I see the Canes as one of the teams that will be very active on draft day. So, for me, I have the players placed where I fancy they will be drafted regardless of the team that is at the position.

And if they do I hope it is David Schantz in the 2nd round.

Just wanted to keep it current and see if anyone had any thoughts.

I am now in a draft pool that will give the winner(s) $400! Thoughts?
I don't see either Bickell or Berti going before McGrath

I don't think Wolski will fall that low. If he does.. I hope to god the Habs trade up.


Although, I'll also be really happy with Kyle Chipchura. He really is perfect for us.
