2012 NHL Mock Draft: Top 14

The draft order will stay almost the same from now until the end of the season so I decided to do this Mock. I will update this as the season ends and then again after the Draft Lottery.

Pick Team Player Position
1st Columbus Blue Jackets Nail Yakupov Right Wing
2nd Edmonton Oilers Mikhail Grigorenko Center
3rd Montreal Canadiens Alex Galchenyuk Center
4th New York Islanders Ryan Murray Left Defenseman
5th Toronto Maple Leafs Filip Forsberg Forward
6th Anaheim Ducks Matthew Dumba Right Defenseman
7th Minnesota Wild Griffin Reinhart Left Defenseman
8th Carolina Hurricanes Teuvo Teravainen Forward
9th Tampa Bay Lightning Jacob Trouba Right Defenseman
10th Winnipeg Jets Radek Faksa Center
11th Buffalo Sabres Morgan Reilly Left Defenseman
12th Colorado Avalanche Derek Pouliot Left Defenseman
13th Calgary Flames Cody Ceci Right Defenseman
14th Dallas Stars Zemgus Girgensons Center



All feedback welcome.

1st Update: 4/1/12 10:54 PM ET

Doubt Minnesota passes on Galchenyuk or Dumba in favor of Forsberg. I also think Collberg goes top 10.

Pretty sure Wild would take Trouba.

If I were in the Leafs I'd also be looking at Brendon Gaunce.... If Burke wants to mold a team like he said he wanted to in his hiring presser then Gaunce will get it done in all areas.

Galchenyuk isn't a bad pick either.

I'd also like to see the Habs go after Gaunce... big power forward that they sorely lack.

Faksa is a far better prospect than Gaunce.

are you advocating that the Leafs pick up Gaunce with the 5th overall pick?

1st Overall: Columbus - LW/RW Nail Yakupov
2nd Overall: Edmonton - LD Ryan Murray
3rd Overall: Montreal - C/RW Mikhail Grigorenko
4th Overall: Minnesota - LW/RW Filip Forsberg
5th Overall: Toronto - C Alex Galchenyuk
6th Overall: NY Islanders - RD Jacob Trouba
7th Overall: Anaheim - RD Matthew Dumba
8th Overall: Tampa Bay - LD Griffin Reinhart
9th Overall: Carolina - C Radek Faksa
10th Overall: Winnipeg - C Brendan Gaunce

All feedback welcome.

I would predict the top 5 to go like that, I think Reilly gets in the top 10 over Faksa or Gaunce.

Sadly if oilers pick 2 there is no way they pass on Grigorenko. We need defense badly but you can not pass on this kid.

I agree with you on your top 5 but i think Dumba will be the 6th pick, Faksa (injury) could fall out of the top 10 and a much as i like Gaunce i wouldn't pick him in the top 10.

I dont see that at all.

dont see the hype in Faksa at all.

Gaunce is a solid player but a bit of a stretch as a top 5...but I can see Burke liking him though..so its possible.

good list, if Anaheim loses Schultz then Dumba would be an amazing pick up for them...

Trouba is nice but if Dumba is still on the Board I think Isles Take him...

He'd get run out of Toronto.

Galchenyuk is that big and skilled number one C they have searched for since Sundin left. There is no way they pass on him for a future 2nd liner at best.

If Minny fans don't want Forsberg we'll take him. He is just so ****in good. Could maybe end up as the best player out of this draft.

But Gaunce is just so truculent.

Temper the expectations if you think you're getting a 1C next year.

On the flip side, not sure Montreal will absolutely pick Grigs. Really talented, but he has a tendency to float. They may take a look at Forsberg or Galchenyuk.

I could see Dumba going to Minnesota, he'd fill a need they have.

It was mentioned last night during the Belleville Bulls/Ottawa 67's game that Grigorenko has been losing favour lately. It's possible that he could drop to 5-8. However, it's equally likely that someone deems him a high-risk/high-reward pick and he goes 2nd overall. Time will tell.

As a Jets fan, if we pick 10th, I`d be very happy with Faksa or Gaunce.

Gally and Grig are almost sure bet number one centers. Unless you mean that he most likely won't play in the NHL next season then I agree with you

Why does everyone give the Wild Forsberg over Galchenyuk?

And I'm pretty sure we would take Dumba over Trouba. Murray and Dumba seem to be the consensus top 2 D right now
