I think if Trouba fell that far I would take him for the Sabres, as he would be BPA at 12.

Oh totally agree. I feel like Wilson has more then just size, he has the hands and skill to be a great player for our team.

I like Trouba a lot, as well, and I'm confused why he fell down so many draft lists. I thought he was quite good at the World Juniors, and I came away more impressed with him than Murray after that tourney--then again, my judgment was likely clouded by the approximately 18 goals that went in off Murray or his stick. That said, I just think they're going forward at 12. I think they're legitimately concerned by Adam's regression, and they're going to want to pump another higher-end forward into the system with that pick.

Agreed. I think unless there is a large run on forwards, meaning someone like Rielly or Reinhart falls, the Sabres are looking at BFA and then going with BPA at 21.

Really? Why do you even act like you watch all junior games when you clearly dont watch more than a couple, the. Say the person who has been a OHL season ticket holder for 5 years and went to 17 playoff games this year gets all his info off the internet? Yes I will admit I dont know alot about European, USHL, and NCAA prospects. But CHL I have seen most players numerous times and usually 3-5 times before they are drafted(over a couple years). Ceci for example I have seen live 9 times over the last 3 years and he has always impressed me. Maatta was one of the best defenceman in the 3 games I saw live this year, not to menton I have I get CHL games on TV.

I do like the Janakowski pick, with the lack of skilled fowards a team may jump up and grab him early.

5.) Toronto Maple Leafs- Mikhail Grigorenko

9.) Winnipeg Jets- Teuvo Teravainen
10.) Tampa Bay Lightning- Griffin Reinhart
11.) Washington Capitals- Jacob Trouba
12.) Buffalo Sabres- Radek Faksa
13.) Dallas Stars- Cody Ceci
14.) Calgary Flames- Brendan Gaunce
15.) Ottawa Senators- Hampus Lindholm
16.) Washington Capitals- Zemgus Girgensons
17.) San Jose Sharks- Sebastian Collberg
18.) Chicago Blackhawks- Matt Finn
19.) Tampa Bay Lightning- Derrick Pouliot
20.) Philadelphia Flyers- Slater Koekkoek
21.) Buffalo Sabres- Tom Wilson
22.) Pittsburgh Penguins- Tomas Hertl
23.) Florida Panthers- Scott Laughton
24.) Boston Bruins- Colton Sissons
25.) St. Louis Blues- Mark Jankowski
26.) Vancouver Canucks- Pontus Aberg
27.) Phoenix Coyotes- Stefan Matteau
28.) New York Rangers-Henrik Samuelsson
29.) New Jersey Devils- Forfeit
30.) LA Kings- Martin Frk
this is exactly my ideal draft short of trading up to get Galchenyuk who I think is the 2nd best forward in this draft and many writers are starting to snuff due to his injury

Don't be afraid, I'm sure it's a "well thought out" mock...

Gaunce at 28, really Jame? Its quite evident you dont like his game.

Where is Koekkoek? His shoulder is complety healed and is a great prospect

Collberg at 30 is also very low, I doubt 28 teams pass on that talent to pick guys like Scissons.

And Reinhart at 2 is just...wow
Howsen and Co. Would be fired on the spot.

What has Finn done to be a top 10 ?



Very poorly thought out mock, did you just pull names out of a hat?
Would anything be more awesome then you mocking Maidens to Buffalo in your mock draft? Nope... nothing could top that... right? What about not having Koekoek in the 1st round?

He does. He also loves Finns, and the Finns love Raleigh (for some unknown reason)--Pitkanen, Ruutu, and Jokinen all elected to stay there rather than departing in UFA. I think that pick is a lock to be Faksa or Teravainen.

I sure wish I had the self assurance that many on the boards do. I keep trying to make a list but then read another set of scouting reports and get thrown off. My picks seem to end up overvaluing the players I want for Buffalo so they are gone before the Buffalo pick. I want the BPA at 12, the best centre available at 21, a high risk high reward centre prospect at 41 or 43, then BPA on the other second. I want a big goalie in the third round who the scouts think has the most upside although if another high risk high reward centre is available I say give it a shot. After that-bpa. It would be nice to trade up but we would only trade up for a centre and with other teams wanting the same thing it would be tough.

I see Yakupov, Forsberg, Grigorenko, Murray and then Galchenyuk as the first 5 assuming no trades. After that pick the names out of a hat for the rest of the first round (from a group of about 30) .

My NHL Draft Mock

select Right Winger Nail Yakupov Sarnia OHL
Best player of the draft, adds even more young firepower to their offense. Could a team trade up and take this pick if Edmonton is thinking of acquiring more assests and grab a defenseman?

select Defeseman Ryan Murray Everett WHL
A top notch, NHL ready defenseman joining Johnson on the blueline this year in Columbus. With a Nash trade near imminent, Columbus will still need to add offfense in some trades if they take Murray over Galchenyuk.

select Center Alex Galchenyuk Sarnia OHL
Habs finally get a bonafide center prospect. They take top line potential and great characther over the injury of the knee that hurt him last year.

select Defenseman Matthew Dumba Red Deer WHL
Questioned whether or not they want Forsberg, but with so much young offensive firepower already, they stick to the gameplan and select a defenseman. Dumba is the second defenseman to get chosen after Murray

select Left Winger Filip Forsberg Leksand SEL
Forsberg or Grigorenko? Burke has has success with the Sweedes before and has seen that perhaps Forsberg could play center in the long run. Leafs fill offensive need by selecting near NHL ready Forsberg

select Center Mikhail Grigorenko Quebec QMJHL
Ducks select a center who has high potential and lucky that he slips this far. In a year or two a 1 2 punch of Getzlaf and Grigorneko could be problem to opponets in the Pacific divison.

select Defenseman Jacob Trouba US18 NTDP
An American defenseman is selected here by Minnesota as they add depth in a big punishing defenseman in Trouba

select Right Winger Teuvo Teravainen Jokerit FIN
Highly skilled forward with loads of potential, he comes in to help increase firepower in the Carolina offense. Needs to get stronger

select Defenseman Griffin Reinhardt Edmonton WHL
A well-rounded defenseman who is good in all the facets of his game. Skating can be improved, but has great potential to go along with size.

select Defenseman Morgan Reilly Red Deer WHL
Yzerman gets nervous to see whether he gets Reinhardt or Reilly. He prefers Reilly and gets lucky that Reinhardt gets selected right before. Reilly and Hedman will lead a good defense core in the future in Tampa

select Center Radek Faksa Kitchener OHL
They grab a center that they have been desiring. Faksa could make the team in a year or two. Kitchener has had success recently developing prospects.

select Defenseman Cody Ceci Ottawa OHL
Although they want to grab a number 1 center, none are left. They could potentially try to trade up, but they wait and select a good two-way defenseman with size in Ceci. Ceci has an NHL cannon shot already and could be pro ready in a year or 2. Some scouts have said behind Murray, Ceci is the most NHL ready.

select Defenseman Olli Maatta London OHL
Could turn out better then some of the defenseman already chosen. Coming over to North America helps his stock and the Stars get a good one.

select Center Zegmus Girgensons Dubuque USHL
Flames need to add talent to all their prospect pools and start this draft by selecting Girgensons who will be a fan favorite in Calgary

select Right Winger Sebastien Collberg Frolunda SEL
After having tremendous successes with other Sweedes, they select another in a potential scorer in Collberg

select Defenseman Hampus Lindholm Rogle SEL
After selecting offense with their first pick, they select a defenseman who played in the Sweedish top league and played well at that.

select Right Winger Tom Wilson Plymouth OHL
Goes a little higher then anticpated due to good combine results. They see a 2/3 line winger who can dig, hit, and score

select Defenseman Matt Finn Guelph OHL
They decide to go defense first and select Finn who will need time to develop into a top 4 defenseman

select Center Brendan Gaunce Belleville OHL
Gaunce drops more then most experts anticipate. Yzerman picks offense after going defense with the first pick. Yzerman sees a future 2/3 line center in Gaunce who could also play wing but be a team first attitude player.

select Defenseman Brady Skeji US18 NTDP
Flyers select the American defenseman who has good potential, still a few years away

select Center Henrik Samuelsson Edmonton OHL
Needs to work with skating skills but adds scoring and grit to the Sabres. An agitator goal scorer can become a huge benefit and the Sabres hope to be rewarded

select Defenseman Slater Koekkeok Peterborough OHL
Add a young defenseman who could become a top 4 defenseman in a few years

select Center Tom Hertl Slavia CZE
Panthers are happy to select and add more center depth in Hertl who could be a great two-way player in 2-3 years

select Defenseman Derrick Pouliot Portland WHL
Bruins add a good two-way defenseman who has an offensive game

select Center Scott Laughton Oshawa OHL
A potential 2/3rd line center who does this little things. Could be a great leader/role player in the future for the blues behind Backes.

select Defenseman Ludvig Bystrom MODO SEL
Vancouver selects a defenseman to add to their depth. They hope he can become a star like another Sweede in Vancouver playing defense.

select Left Winger Pontus Aberg Djurgardens SEL
Aberg drops out of the teens and the Coyotes get a high potential speedy forward to increase their future offensive depth.

select Defenseman Jordan Schmaltz Green Bay USHL
High potential Defenseman to go to broadway. Needs some time to fine tune his game and develop more which will be allowed with the Rangers depth. Needs to add size and strength.

select Goaltender Malcom Subban Belleville OHL
After not forfeiting their pick, they decide to add to their goaltending depth and between Wedgewood and Subban one will take the heir to Brodeur in a year or two. Subban is the only goalie selected in the first round.

select Center Mark Jankowski Stanstead College
Boom/bust, might be a real treat to watch. With added size and strength, Jankowski could have top 6 center potential. Great pick for Kings at 30

Interesting to see, for some reason I think the Sabres select a defenseman first.

I only had 2 players in the top 21 that didn't go in the top 21
Vasilevski went instead of Subban
And I overrated Finn/underrated Koekoek.

19 of 21 is pretty good right?

I had 7 of 29 guys in the first who didn't go... but aside from Finn, they are all "late" 1sts.

oh... and dont think i forgot this:

you were right... although it was pretty funny when your mock from a month earlier had Maidens going to buffalo at 21

I would be pissed if Buffalo passed on Reilly to fill a need with Girgensons, not that Buffalo would do that anyways
the only thing we know about this is that buffalo liked girgs enough to trade up for him

Quote:
Virtually 0 chance Maatta goes 25 when he is easily a top 15 prospect who has developed very well the last half of the season and will likely be picked ahead of his ranking.
zero huh? amazing since he went only 3 picks earlier
Quote:
Gaunce at 28, really Jame? Its quite evident you dont like his game.
yup, he went 26
Quote:
Where is Koekkoek? His shoulder is complety healed and is a great prospect
you were right. i was wrong about finn

Quote:
Collberg at 30 is also very low, I doubt 28 teams pass on that talent to pick guys like Scissons.
well, collberg is still on the board...
Quote:
And Reinhart at 2 is just...wow
Howsen and Co. Would be fired on the spot.
reinhart is the best defensemen in the draft. he went 4th. oh my god, im crazy.
Quote:
What has Finn done to be a top 10 ?
clearly nothing. i was way off on finn... but damn close on a lot of that round, especially the top 21



Quote:
Very poorly thought out mock, did you just pull names out of a hat?
well... it was more accurate then your mock...
