I just didn't like his hockey sense the few times I saw him. Could've been bad games.

Anyways.. no 3rd round for me

Watching this unfold here, I'm pretty excited at the thought of the Habs getting some pretty damn good players with their first 6 picks come June 30th.

I think Poirier, Dauphin and Santini will go a lot higher in the NHL draft.

Sorry for the hold up guys, I wasn't expecting my pick to come so quick, I'll only be able to make my pick after 1 -I'll try and make it happen before, but I'm not home atm.

From what I remember, Saturdays are typically slower days for the mocks. Hope it's not too slow, though.

As Habs fans we should create a panel of experts to review and critique your list once you send it in.

Passed on Morin and Dauphin

With the 55th pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft the Buffalo Sabres are thrilled to select....

From Almaz Cherepovets...Pavel Buchnevich!



We are shocked that Pavel was still on the board by our pick, he has all the tools to be a very successful top 6 forward in the NHL, it is just a matter of time for him. He was stellar in the WJC-U18 potting 11 points in 7 games, and we feel he has the drive, and high-end skill set to be a very special player that will make an impact on the Sabres roster in the not so distant future.


I'm pretty friggn stoked right now.

Next GM pm'd.

Awards:


With the 56th overall pick the Dallas Stars are pleased to select from the Belleville Bulls, defenseman Jordan Subban.



What excites us most about Jordan are his bloodlines. Even though he may not be as highly touted as his brothers, we believe he'll have the drive to be as good or better than either of them. He has incredible puck skills and while he may not be the tallest player, he can follow in his brother P.K.'s path of bulking up and using his skating to dominate bigger forwards.


Next GM has been PM'd.

I personally don't see much value in Buchnevich - in a mock draft setting particularly. I could see him slipping below the real draft's 2nd round for sure. As good as he looked in the U18 environment, I bet NHL scouts have the same doubts as myself. Assuming he even eventually decided to come over to the NHL instead of likely being a star back home, is the forecast of his ability to translate to the NHL setting sure enough to pick him up in the 2nd round of THIS draft? Seems like one of those gambles that SOMEone might make, but even at #55 this year there seem to be plenty of players without such a boom/bust dichotomy.

On that note, I am super, super pissed that I don't have any picks these rounds, with the glut of guys (including at least one person that I'm going to go ahead and call as a 1st rounder, MAYBE early, early 2nd round) still on the board...

As per PM from WTK:

Montreal selects C John Hayden from the United States Developmental Program.

This gets the ever so (non) important HF18 seal of approval. Hayden was one of the guys I was debating back and fourth over, before selecting McCarron. I would LOVE for the Habs to scoop him up with one of their 2nd rounders.

Will PM next GM.
