HFBoards Mock Draft 2013

Don't know if this has been done before, but it's a long lockout so I decided I'd try it. I ran a lottery simulation a while back and came up with a draft order which can be seen here. I decided that instead of coming up with a mock draft myself I would have the fans of each team vote on their pick. I'll post the collective results once every fanbase has voted.

The Flyers have the #5 pick. Thus far, Aleksander Barkov, Seth Jones, Nathan Mackinnon and Sean Monahan have been selected. Who would you want Philadelphia to select with the fifth overall pick?

Nikita Zadorov

We have enough small mobile defensemen like Ryan Pulock, so I'd use the pick to draft Zadorov.

Always take the best player available and in this case, that's Drouin and it isn't close.

I think Ryan Pulock is the answer here. IMO, he's the most well-rounded of the defensemen remaining imo. Druin is great, but certainly not better enough to ignore the positional needs in this case. If Monahan slid, I could see that changing the need vs. BPA ratio.

Agreed. You always trade down if you're drafting for need.

From draftsite.com

Quote:
Another prototypical Swedish center with excellent NHL upside. Has good wheels, tremedous quickness, a quick stick, and plays strong on the puck with overall game toughness. Could be a special player down the road. At this point more of a playmaker, but his recent showings have displayed a really smart offensive threat who can withstand the rough going, while maintaining his more finesse style of play.
Im personally a big fan of Ristolainen. One of the top defenders of the draft. One of the top defenders in last years WJC as a 17 yr old.

Nikita Zadorov is a nice player also, but is looking like a mid teens type of pick.

I go with Ramus here.

I wouldn't take Zadorov here.

Will be selected in the mid teens/early 20's. Good player, just not a top 5 pick.

Also Pulock is not a "small" mobile defenseman. He is 6'0/6'1 depending where you look weighing 210-215. Also is a great offensive threat with a rocket of a shot. He would be a great player to have in our organization, and the best prospect since Pitkanen. One negative he has is he doesn't throw his weight around as much as he should, but that can come in time.

Also I would take Drouin if he was there over Pulock.

None of the above. Homer trades up to #2 and grabs Jones. (Who is then traded 2.5 seasons later )

Drouin is too good to pass up at 5.

I picked Drouin, and OP perhaps rather than listing who has been picked, list the teams/order/pick in a list in your post.

So we would take another C in Drouin? I've never seen him play. Is he that good? If we were to trade down from 5th, and we know it would be Drouin, maybe send it somewhere to the west coast and use a slightly lower pick for Pulock? I dunno, just thinking...

He's more of a LW. Think Giroux. He has sick hands.

Ugh... I'd love him, but we need D . In a way, I guess this is how the Oilers feel picking 3 forwards in a row as 1st overall.

It's another deep draft with regards to defensemen this year. There's probably five or six defensemen who will go in the 2nd round this year that should have been first round picks. However, if the Flyers do end up with pick number 5, I'd love to see them draft Couturier's running mate for the next little while.

You think Drouin is good enough to jump up into the NHL and take Hartnell's spot right away?

I think we have enough votes now. Thank you to everyone who came out and voiced their opinion, and at this time it looks like the Philadelphia Flyers are going to go with Jonathan Drouin. I'll be posting the full results of the draft in the Prospect forum once I have collected votes from all 30 teams.
