Still amazed by Collberg and Forsberg going so early. Good players but they dont bring anything extraordinary to the table. I dont think anyone of them will make a whole NHL season.

They may very well take him...but that won't be the reason why.

I don't think it was an actual Montreal scout...he has close ties to Montreal's head scout/director of player dev.

At any rate at this point you can't really believe what you hear...i'm sure there will be alot of intentionally false information spread around by many of the teams at the top of the draft order.

Top 3: (with shortage of high end forwards they're going early)

Yakupov
Grigorenko
Galchenyuk (if he gets even a few games in this year)


Dumba
Faksa
Forsberg
Rienhart
Murray
Ceci
Rielly

isn't Patrick Roy pimping out Grigo to get picked by the Habs?

This mock draft was only done to test out a scenario where Galchenyuk drops to Toronto.

That's not going to happen. The Wild will grab him if he is still on the board. They will happily draft a top tier Dman if he's not, but even with the Wild's forward prospects, they can always use an offensive elite forward to play with Granlund for 10 years.

I agree %100 percent. It really shows how weak this draft class (especially forwards) is.

I'm CBJ's head scouts' brother and he doesn't like yakupov or Grigorenko. He's going off the board. He really likes Matt Finn's game

I agree, minesotta may be looking for a franchise dman with burns gone. However players like galchenyuk arent available everyday, you take them regardless of need. The only prayer for toronto is if Minnesota gets a couple more wins then toronto to finish out the year

Still think Montreal takes Galchenyuk. #3. Grigorenko will be this years Couturier.

I have a feeling that we (Minnesota) would have to pass up both Montreal and Carolina to have a shot at Galchenyuk.

If Galchenyuk does rise on draft day, I can see him and Forsberg switching places from my mock.

please he's been ranked 5-7 all year mostly due to his injury. And that's where the poster has him ranked. The only people that him in the top 3 is the prospect junkies on this board.

Timmins (our head scout) seems to be a little iffy on him. I wouldn't be surprised if he went with Galchenyuk over Grigs. Dunno if that's the right move, but he's more of a Timmin's pick.

Timmins loves his US born players. Recently he's also focused on very strong work ethic and Galchenyuk's recovery from his injury has created a really positive impression.

You do know that the poster you're headshaking is from Sweden, right? & he's right, Forsberg's not even playing in the SEL & Collberg has been but has been very underwhelming. At least last year Zibanejad was playing in the SEL & putting up some reasonable #'s & didn't look out of place as a 17 year old. & it was a surprise to many that he went as early as #6 overall.

I agree with all 3 posts.

I don't see Lou passing on Koekkoek if he's still on the board. If I had to guess, I'd say that Lou and Conte would pick another solid d-men and cross their fingers that one of Vasilevki or Subban drops in the middle of the 2nd round and probably move up to select one of them. If both guys are off the board, there's still Oscar Dansk who's flying below the radar and wouldn't be a bad pick in the 2nd or 3rd round.

I just don't see two goaltenders going in the 1st round but that's just my opinion

If we could land Koekkoek and upgrade our biggest weakness (our blueline), we'd have a promising crop of young stud blueliners in Adam Larsson, John Merrill, Éric Gélinas and Slater Koekkoek.

Wouldn't mind that one bit

Hypothetical: if the Devils happen to make the conference finals and pick in the 27-30 range, would Lou opt to forfeit this year's pick and get that out of the way?
