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.)

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.
