Drouin looks real dangerous. Fast as all get out.

But I have this feeling he never will. Give me Bailey.

And Laurent Dauphin. Oh boy am I a fan. Late addition to the top prospect game, and first star of the game. Guy is going to be a player.
I know a scout that has Justin Bailey as high as mid first rd right now, I doubt he drops below the first rd. High end potential, size, good genes, really a solid pick. Very respectful of Lafontaine and Barnaby, 2 of his mentors. I would be surprised the Sabres would let this guy slide past them. I think he can be a dominant player if he ever reaches his potential. Much more attractive than a player like Domi or Horvat IMHO.

I see a guy like Nichuskin falling due to the Russian factor he's a guy if the leafs pick between 8-13 if he's on the board he has to be your pick.

Also I feel the using later picks on the following 2 will be a great idea: Marko Dano and Taylor Cammarata

Would absolutely love using a pick on Cammarata. Right up there with Drouin skill wise. Size and skating are his issues.

Agree 100%. Look at Tarasenko - fell because of Russian factor, and he has dominated the KHL and had one of the better NHL debuts I have ever seen.

I would love to pull a Buffalo and nab two picks close to each other and take two centres/forwards if we are in that ~10 range. Nichushkin and Erne/Duclair/Gauthier. I am really high on Nichushkin personally.

I like Nichuskin as well but he is a boom bust kind of player. He has some great raw skill but there's tunnel vision issues and a bit of hockey IQ issues that can be fixed if you watch his game.
The leafs could totally suck ass this year and grab one of the top 5 but I see them being the typical leafs and getting somewhere between 8-13. If that's the case I would be hoping for any of the following: Pulock, Morrissey, Shinkaruk, Nichuskin and Zadorov. All of these kids are oozing potential.

TBH as much as we need a game breaking forward getting one of the first round defenders this year would not bother me because this teams defensive depth could become one of the best in the league.

If the leafs are middle of the pack near the deadline or tanking then I wouldn't opposed to moving pieces like macarthur for a 1st. That would give us a pick in the 19-30 range which has some intriguing players with my favourites: Bailey, Gauthier and JT Compher.

We should start taking chances on boom/bust players and give them time to develop. When there is a player with as much skill as Nichushkin still on the board, you take that chance.

I agree with you on this.

This draft is turning into quite a deep and talented class.

I would like the leafs to draft any of the following later on: Dano, Cammarata, Bjorkstrand, Klimchuk, Comrie, M. Muller and Slepyshev

Yeah I'd take a chance on Slepyshev for sure. Also like Bjorkstrand and Cammarata.

I've watched him play I keep a track on Waterloo games. He has a great game his issues are his size and a little bit with his skating but his skating can be fixed. He seems to know and see the play before it develops.

So I realize that Nicholas Petan of the Portland Winterhawks is basically Frodo The Hobbit BUT what do you guys honestly think of him? He is putting up friggin insane numbers and a kid that I see as a very boom/bust prospect.

I noticed Curtiz Lazar is now being mocked at 29 according to http://www.mynhldraft.com/NHL-Mock-Draft/

What happened? This guy was a top 10 pick not too long ago.

Hasn't shown the offensive upside that he did in the 2012 WHL Playoffs.

He would be someone I would love to target if we had a second 1st. Use the first pick on the higher ranked centres then take Lazar. Like what Buffalo did with Grig and Girg.

why? if he wasn't suspended for 10 games on his current point pace he'd be 5th in OHL scoring playing for one of the worst CHL teams in the league.

Another player Im keeping an eye on is Connor Hurley. Centre who seems to have a ton of skill, but hasnt filled out yet. Seems to be ranked around the 2nd or 3rd round at the moment, but could shoot up as the draft gets closer.

Has there been any player who was ranked high, for example, in the top 10, who fell into say the 2nd round, and proceeded to make scouts\teams regret that decision?

I can't think of any.

The most recent example I can think of is Brandon Saad.
