HF Mock Draft 16th Overall

greetings Sabres fans, I've thought a cool idea for this draft would be to do a mock draft by going through each team forum in order of there pick in the first round and poll who they would take. whoever gets the most votes gets picked. and is taken off the list for the next team. with the 15th overall pick the Islanders took Zadorov with the other results just below. I'm hoping that by going through each team's forum I would get a better idea of who there team might select since those fans should know the most about there teams, so given the circumstances who would the Sabres select 16th overall?

Picks so Far:

Avalanche: Seth Jones
Panthers: Nathan Mackinnon
Lightning: Jonathon Drouin
Predators: Aleksander Barkov
Hurricanes: Sean Monahan
Flames: Elias Lindholm
Oilers: Valeri Nichushkin
Sabres: Rasmus Ristolainen
Devils: Hunter Shinkaruk
Stars: Alexander Wennberg
Flyers: Darnell Nurse
Coyotes: Max Domi
Jets: Frederik Gauthier
BlueJackets: Bo Horvat
Islanders: Nikita Zadorov


after I go through all 30 picks of the first round I will post the results in the prospect section.

I also ask that I'm looking to poll Sabres fans so if your not a Sabres fan and just browsing I ask that you refrain from voting thanks.

also Mods I realize you guys have a prospects thread but this type of thing needs to be done in a poll so I ask that you don't delete/merge the thread to allow me to continue thanks

Pulock or Lazar. Erne is a 2nd round talent.

Lazar or Erne, I know its not BPA but I think this is one of those times where the difference between BPA and next best isn't much, and we NEEEED forwards much more than D prospects.

I think I'd go with Gauthier or Lazar, but wouldn't be too upset if they picked Erne or Rychel in this spot.

I was 50/50 on Erne or Mantha, ultimately went with Erne. Either one of those guys at 16 though and I'd be ecstatic.

Erne because he plays a power game, gets described by scouts as a horse and is a very good skater with good burst through the neutral zone. A man with size who can get into a good stride on the transition is a scary thought for this former defenseman.

If the Sabres leave the first round with Risto and Erne it would be a bit deflating. Not because I don't like the players but because it does very little to address the lack of elite skill on this team. Otherwise it's 2 solid picks. If this how things play out its imperative Darcy turns 8 into 5-6, preferably without losing 16 but that might be greedy.

Interesting mock. It will be interesting to see if the real draft has only 4 defenseman taken in the first 15 picks.

Ernie, Zykov and Mantha came down to it. Ultimately chose Ernie.

So do I.

Was a tough choice between Mantha, Erne and Pulock.

I'd like to see Pulock, but if a d-man is taken at #8, probably Erne.

I don't really see this view.

At forward we have Grigorenko, Girgensons, Armia, and Larsson. Certainly adding more top end talent is a good idea.

But at D we only have Pysyk, McNabb, and McCabe in terms of high end guys. We are not overflowing with D-men prospects. So yes, while we do need more forward prospects, we also have a need for more D-men prospects.

Plus taking a D-man doesn't rule out trading him for a forward later--Kassian turned into Hodgson.

Our D pipeline is not so well stocked that it should be dismissed as a possibility. Add in that D usually takes longer to develop...

ROFL the agendas continue even in mock draft threads. It seems like people love to follow the loudest voices around here. Erne over Pulock or Lazar? Holy ****.

Lazar will more than likely go top 15 and Erne could easily go in the 2nd round.

I was going to make a comment about how Jame's campaigning a couple weeks ago seems to have worked wonders, but figured someone else would if I didn't.

Pulock is probably BPA here. Lazar is probably "best forward available".

Voted Pulock.

Lazar with ease for me. If our draft went Risto, Erne, I would slit my wrist.

Pulock and Lazar are only behind by a little. Still, its likely that the BFA(Lazar)/BPA(Pulock) debate will split too many votes and the Jamebots will win.

I like Erne but this is clearly a case of one player being campaigned for because someone watched him a few times while viewing Grigorenko this year.

If you polled Erne vs Lazar to the 29 other fan bases here Lazar would win out 29 times. yet somehow here not only is Erne winning but by a rather large margin.
