#58, washington, there isn't a player listed.

Rankings look good IMO.

I'll need new pants if the Canes somehow end up with Grigorenko and Wilson this year. Even if Wilson's offense never comes around he's the kind of guy the Canes could use in their system.

Oilers will grab Subban if still available at 33. Unless Frk and Wilson are still on the board

thanks, fixed it with Marchese ... probably not going that high but still a good player who fits in with guys like Brouwer and other grinders the Caps acquired recently.

Very happy with the Trouba pick, though I want Galchenyuk more. And I guarantee you the Ducks don't pass on Subban to pick McCabe. Hell if we wanted defense we'd go for Bystrom.

I like the Reinhart pick a lot. I'd want to trade both of our 2nds to get into the 1st round and pick Vasilievski. Subban I feel is going to be more of high risk, high reward goalie and Vasilievski is better potential and a better chance of reaching it. Subban's pretty small compared to today's standards

I don't see Forsberg dropping to 9th, nor do I see the Habs passing on him if he does drop.

Perhaps but I think Gibson is a franchise goalie. I liked him a lot last year and IMO is a superior prospect to Subban.

McCabe is a safe pick. I think the Ducks need more steady D. Outside of Clark, and now Trouba ... hypotetically ... McCabe could complete that core. Plus, he plays at Wisconsin with Schultz.

I thought about it. I think he'd be a good fit for the Habs. However, it never seemed to me like the Habs had much interest in drafting in Sweden. Not a great argument but still. Ceci showed great chemistry with Beaulieu in training camp for Team Canada and completes what should be a great D to come for the Habs, after investing on Price.

This, and as good as Subban could be, I don't think the Habs will pick a goalie with their 2nd round pick. Not that they don't need goalies in the system (they have nothing behind Price), but I think that when you don't need a goalie ASAP, picking one each year, but in the later round is a better strategy.

I don't agree that Gibson is a "superior goalie" to Subban. Not at all.

In all honesty, I think Vasilevskiy is receiving a little too much credit (on most list) from his WJC performance. He was certainly good and definitely a top 3 goalie in this draft class but I still think Dansk and Subban are better options between the pipes.

What's the purpose of you ranking and mock drafting based on Statistics? Doesn't hold much value when NHL teams don't use that approach. Just curious as to why you choose to do it that way.

I'm a Ducks fan and I approve this message. Sure Gibson could become a franchise goalie. We don't really know. But Subban right now has proved he's better and you don't pass on him just cause you have a star G prospect. You pick BPA throughout the entire draft and the Ducks laugh as they pick Subban as the other teams stupidly pass on him.

There is more to a goalie than just simply GAA and SV%, look at Gibson compared to Subban. I have a tough time believing you follow the O if you think Subban is better than Gibson let alone that he should be a first round pick. Gibson has had 1 game where he played bad and it was his first game ever might have even been in the preseason (not quite sure) other than that he has proved that he is the best goalie in the O or top 2 with Houser. Not saying that Subban is bad, but if you have a top goalie prospect and you use such a high draft pick in such a deep draft on a goalie than you seriously do not deserve to be a GM, period.

I could see the Oilers grabbing Pearson with the #33 pick. The Oilers have enough Dmen of Pelech's ilk. They are going to nee some immediate AHL help and Pearson could help with that as soon as next season. Pearson is a player that can be converted to center if need be. Versatile player.

Ryan Murray or Galchenyuk at 3? Tough call, I know the Oilers need help at D but they also need some "nuke" ability from the center position so they can start ascending forward. Galchenyuk being a shooting all around center would be a nice #2C behind RNH. At the moment the Oilers should be drafting 2nd and then it would be a no brainer to take Grigorenko.

based on the past + CP31 in nets, I'm 100% certain habs aren't going to take a d man and then goalie with their first two picks. ALL their needs are at forward / center.

they already have subban, emelin, tinordi, beaulieu, ellis etc

I feel like Washington would be more interested in Pouliot or Maatta than Gaunce, but that's just me.

At 18 Reinhart is a steal. Gaunce and Maatta are the only players that may make Lou think twice, but Griffin is the better defenseman and while I like Gaunce, we are set at center.

Took a screen shot of this post. Gibson is really the best in the O? Good to hear.

And I do watch junior every chance I get...rarely.

Reinhart,Gaunce,Maatta,Koekoek and Finn are a little low
Hudon is high. Samuelsson is high at this point as he didn't play that well until coming to the WHL. He could rise that high by draft time though.
As a previous poster said, no way Montreal pass on Forsberg.
Brady Vail and Tom Wilson should be higher i'd say.

Montrealo would be very stupid to pick Ceci instead of Forsberg,imo.
For me there is a clear Top 8, perhaps Top 9 when you want to add Reinhart.
I agree with your Top 7.
If Trouba ahead of Rielly, or Forsberg ahead of both or not is very hard to predict. Same with Galchenyuk.
The long injuries are make it even more difficult. Depends on how much of a factor it is for the teams.

I had Vasilevskiy as my n'1 goalie before the WJC anyways. To me, he's a franchise goalie if he comes over.

I always had an interest in stats and maths at school but never applied it much to sports analysis since basic stats like goals, assists, rushing yards or whatever don't have much predictive value in themselves.

However, after 1st reading moneyball, I became very interested in the "deeper" statistical analysis in sports. I know teams don't use stats much except for a few teams. Especially in hockey. Outside of Vancouver, there's not too many teams out there that will rely on statistical models to run their team.

That said, I'm simply a fan at home. I don't have time to watch X player play in Skövde, Sweden in the Division-1 league. So, I thought I dig deeper in stats, and general data available for prospects and thought I'd buil a model to analyse players and form my own opinion. Not that I don't care for anyone else's. There's still plenty of work to do on my algorithms, but still. That way I get to "see" players in a different way.

There's still plenty of work to do on my algorithms, but still. That way I get to "see" players in a different way.

First let me say that I appreciate the work that you have done here. I also appreciate that you have stepped outside the box and look at things differently than others. It takes a lot of guts to post rankings like this or to take the time to make a mock draft and then people come on here and post things like X team will never draft X player before Y player. RIGHT. Because you know how X team has their players ranked. I did an entire 7 round mock last year, with comments, and its a difficult process since like you, I am simply a fan at home. I watch a lot of hockey and I read a ton about prospects. I have found quite a few posters and bloggers whose opinions I give value to, and that is how I ranked and mock drafted the players.
You may not want your team to draft X player over Y player, but don't act like you know that it won't happen.

That out of the way, a couple of questions for you:
1. Ivan Nalimov - a Russian goalie out of the MHL? I've never heard of him. Maybe the next Bobrovsky? You have him rated as a second rounder, what have you heard about him that would make you rank him ahead of Dansk, Korpisalo?

2. You are from Quebec not? I am assuming that you have had a chance to see some of these prospects play which is why you have Charles Hudon rated so highly. Can you give me any info on some of the Q prospects. I am especially interested in the d-men form the Q. There is noone rated to go high amongst the QMJHL defenders this year. Central Scouting has Ryan Culkin at #89 as the first. You have Dillon Fournier as the 20th and your top Q prospect. I too have heard good things about Fournier, just looking for anothers opinion.
