NHL.com Early Mock Drafts

Upon first glance, doesn't look too bad.

Surprises to me include

Malcom Subban @ 13 - Hoffner

Phillip Di Guseppe @11.. (Unfamiliar with him, wouldn't mind a small rundown) - Morreale

Faksa @ 15 ^

Matteau @ 8 - Morreale

Galchenyuk @ 2 - Hoffner

Always liked Kimelmans the most.

Discuss

It seems (from looking at the projected picks by the Wild) that they certainly just ranked players, then someone else applied the current team ranks to it. If they were actually trying to project how those teams would pick, the guy who had the Wild grab a goalie needs to be fired. Immediately. Out of a cannon.

I like Kimmelman's the best on a consistent basis. But I'll refrain from talking smack about Morreale, me and him talk on Twitter, and he really does know his stuff. He just has questionable mock draft picks.

Can't see the Wild taking a goalie in the first 2-3 rounds. 95% sure they'd take a defenseman in the first round.

Faksa at 15? Ouch. Rieder was doing a lot better than him last year and look how far he fell. I mean Faksa's played great this season but he's got a ways to go before I'd say he's a first rounder. I guess they're not that bad but it's hard to be bad at this point.

I like Rieder but he is 5-10. Faksa is 6-2, very competitive, plays intelligent but also physical game.
I won´t be surprised if he is first rounder in June.

I won't be either and I actually hope he ends up a first rounder and I definitely think he has the talent to but he has a long way to go still.

He seems similarily skilled to me, but with much better size; it just looks like he may not have fully adjusted to NA quite yet. I think having him that high is based on the potential they see in him if he puts all of the tools he has together.

Koekkoek at 23, 25 and 26 seems a bit low. You'd think at least one of them would be higher on him.

Subban at 13 is just silly, I'm thinking more of a mid round pick. Athanasiou at 8 is way too high as well, I think the guy that has him 29th has it the most right, kid can really skate but just isn't a consistent threat yet.

Is anyone suprised by the real lack of elite Forwards in this draft from a North American perspective?

I'm surprised people keep taking high schoolers in the first round.

Doesn't that seem a bit..risky?

This. But he needs to put up points first.

Also, I highly highly doubt Galchenyuk goes at #2, like Hoffner says. That would be considered high even BEFORE he had the knee injury. Top 5 perhaps, but not #2.

I'd rather want Girgensons or Gaunce for the Habs than Athanasiou or Trouba at #8. Matteau? I'm not sure at all.

And Malcolm Subban can likely be had at #38 or so.

No way the Habs take another D-Man in the first round unless it was a Fowler situation.

We drafted pretty much strictly D last year, our talent pool is stocked, we desperately need another goalie in the pipeline and an impact center. LW is also weak.

I think Malcom Subban will be a 2nd round pick personally.

Nice to see I'm not the only one who thinks Radek Faksa is 1st round material. I was very impressed with this kid early.
