Assuming no trades occur (unlikely but that is way to hard to predict), this is my prediction for the first round. Also I am new to HF Boards so if I do something technically wrong don't hesitate to tell me . Let me know your thoughts.

Id rather have Girgensons than Gaunce, but that just might be me.
I also think Collberg will go a bit higher. Really good mock though.
Thanks man. I just haven't read/heard a lot about Collberg so that pick may be off, but I have also seen his ranking in other mock's go up and down big time so it was hard for me to decide where to put him. Also I think Girgensons might be a steal at 17, but I think that the Flames will go with the rugged 2-way forward Gaunce before him (call it Canadian influence, or call it my extremely high, very unlikely and ridiculous hopes of a player to HELP replace the beloved Iginla in some form, as he is aging).
