I was expecting either Merrill or Howden, depending on where we finished. Merrill is pretty raw, but has the potential to be a Hamhuis-style rearguard. Watson is exactly what we need, but I don't think he'll be available when we pick. Skinner would also be a great fit, but again, I think he's gone by the time we pick.

Intentional or otherwise, Poile tends to draft a defender every other year in the first round. We picked Ryan Ellis last year, so I would expect us to take a forward. (As a side note, Roarke's mock is ridiculous. McFarland going in the first round at all at this point is a long shot, at best.)

Anyone interested in Chet's brother, Calvin Pickard? In at least one of the mock drafts, he'd be available around our pick.

Well, the David Poile profile says this is a year for a 1st round forward and a bunch of defensive players in the back rounds. I can only see Nashville making a move to pick up Calvin is if they trade a BUNCH of goalie prospects in the off season.
