I think everyone in here already knew they could do your job.

Sorry fellas, been an extremy busy time for me.

Great job to everyone, and I apologize again that I wasn't as on top of things as previous years. Thanks again to BG and Crimson.

Natey, you can post it if you want. I'm on my phone.

I don't think you give yourself enough credit. You did an amazing job all things considering. Just like any years there were blips, but that's to be expected with 30 people with different schedules. All amidst the hectic play-off run we had.

As far as the left-overs of the draft, there's a few guys I had on my list that never got selected:
Brandon Robinson.
Damian Bourne.
Dylan Gambrell.
Matt Ustanski.
Nolan Stevens.
Radel Fazleev.
Adam Rockwood.
Andrei Kuzmenko.
Kasimir Kasikisuo
Daniel Walcott.
Josh Wesley.
J.D. Dudek.
Dominic Franco.

Now whether or not those guys get drafted at all or invited to rookie camps, remains to be seen. But they were left over from the mass of long shots I gathered for my 7th round consideration.

Thanks for all the hard work habsfan18! Much appreciated. And thank you for letting me be a part of it again. One of the highlights of the year for me.

I was debating Walcott for my last pick almost took him.

Guys that I'm inviting in my development camp (still on my list...):

In the category "I'm stunned that we didn't pick him...(we includes myself), and I would bet that they will be picked in the real draft...the nominees are

- Kevin Labanc
- Robert Carpenter (Bloodlines..this kid WILL be picked up)
- JJ Piccinich
- Chase Thomas Perry
- Radel Fazleyev
- Ryan Hitchcock (Good enough U-18 to have been noticed)
- Henrik Tornqvist (Really skilled and really young. Less than 1 month from the next draft)


In the category "Limited time...limited viewings...MIGHT surprise Steve Mason style...the nominees are:
- Matthew Mancina
- Ken Appleby
- Hugo Fagerblom

In the category, "I'm biased, I'm a Michigan sucker and think that every prospect that plays there will become a star even if they rarely do, the nominees are:"

- Evan Allen
- Zachary Nagelvoort (Still..while he might not be picked up, this goalie will be in demand come UFA time at the end of his college career)
- Hayden Lavigne (I'm just being consequent here, at the start of the year, named him as I guy I'd follow...he did have a dissapointed year in the USHL still.....scheduled to go to Michigan)
- Connor Murphy (Really small and frail scoring machine...)

In the category of "Who the **** are those guys...the nominees are:"

- David Tomasek (Intriguing prospect that is taking more time than I thought to put it all together...)
- Walterri Hopponen (Finnish playing in the USHL)
- Ivan Nikolishin (So small but so dynamic)
- Cristiano Digiacinto (Just a bet that this kid will be great next year)
- Milan Kolena (Been a big fan of Kolena for quite a few years now)
- Ty Edmonds
- Christian Jaros
- Chase Phelps
- Dakota Joshua
- Andrei A. Mironov

Yeah, don't beat yourself up Habsfan18. You did a good job with this. There is always place to bettering it of course, but this is heaven compared to the 2.0 Mock last year (no offense yoteshot). A lot of it lies on the posters too, the better and more dedicated the GMs, the smoother the mock goes.

It was fun guys, thanks for letting me in

Yeah, it was fun and you won't have to twist my arm to come back next year. The draft crew here seems to have scary-good knowledge... I guess I hadn't quite appreciated the number of posters we have who know the draft that well!

And I got to pad my mod stats by updating things a couple times, so I have no complaints about chipping in there for sure!

Fellas, with Brady Vail re-entering the draft, where would you have taken him? Of course assuming you were planning to.

Not sure I ever would have considered him. I likely would have picked Matt Murphy out of Halifax for an over-ager instead. Value-wise? Hard pegging him higher than 6th/7th rounder (maybe a conditional 5th )

No draft. Try to sign him if I'm really thin on forward prospects but not worth a pick.

I would have considered Vail, especially over Danny. I've seen enough to him to think there's a future NHL'er there. Might not be what I projected (3rd liner), but we'll see. There's aboslutely no way, unless it was off-ice problems, that he shouldn't have been signed.

It has to be off-ice issues.

I would have obviously consider him for my 7th round pick. Not sure how I would have evaluated him though.

That was my thought, but why even give him a stint with Hamilton to change your mind? He wasn't put in a role to succeed and off-ice issues aren't magically figured out in a week.

4 players in our 1st round did not get taken in round one: Barbashev, Demko, McKeown, and Karlsson. Not including the players not selected in round one, the biggest known fall is Kempe (15 spots), the biggest known riser is Sanheim (23 spots), and 3 players were picked at the right number: Ekblad, Nylander, and Scherbak.

Looking forward to comparing tomorrow.

It's absolutely awesome. Only CSS has their rankings before us. Everybody else is almost the same day, they have time to revisit it. Happy to see my DeAngelo pick at 37 becoming 19th. On talent alone, it's totally deserving.
