Rare Jewel's Mock draft(W/O trades)

Figured I'd have a go at one of these.





Nail Yakupov


Oilers get the consensus #1 pick and a Dynamic talent who will contribute right away.




Flilip Forsberg


CBJ had their mind set on Yakupov before the lottery, Now they'll "settle" for the talented Swedish winger





Alex Galchenyuk


It'll be a popular choice with Habs fans as they get a big skilled center for the first time in a quite while.





Griffin Reinhart


Murray on the board will make this a hard pick, But the Isles opt with the complete package of size and skill with Reinhart




Morgan Rielly



Despite fans and media clamering for a center, Burke opts with the dynamic defensemen from Moose Jaw.



Ryan Murray



Schultz who? Ducks get possibly the most NHL ready defensemen in the draft.





Mathew Dumba



The wild should be very happy with the robust defensemen with very good leadership qualities.





Radek Faksa


Canes go back to Kitchener for a 3rd time. This time for the skilled Czech center.





Hampus Lindholm


The Jets take the poised Swedish defensemen with pro experience already.



Teuvo Teräväinen


Bolts take the fast rising Finn with the last pick in the top 10.




I Know I'll take a beating for Grigorenko not in the top 5 or 10 but w/e

fire away

No way Girgs falls below Faksa I think.

I think the Flyers would take Koekkoek over Wilson.

They probably love Wilson because he seems like a Flyers player, but they are in some desperate need of young dmen.

Even as skeptical as I am about him, I'm having a very hard time believing that the Capitals take damn near anyone above Grigorenko if he's at 11. McPhee has been all about that kind of risk-reward high-skill pick in the past few years, especially if your board plays out. Ceci at 16 and Grigorenko at 11 comes out better, to me, than Trouba/Gaunce. Hell, Grigorenko/Gaunce is nice too, but it just seems to me that Grigorenko's perceived risk knocks him out of that top pick range, but the stupid amount of talent he has will eventually counterbalance it, and given that Washington has been hurting for that 2C hard, he's a closer fix than most.

I had a long hard think about having the caps take him at #11, But I thought their already going though a problem with Kuznetsov. And when he finally does come over you should have your #2 center. So I went with the best defensemen at #11.


After the Caps he went into "Fowler fall mode" and Calgary are desperate for good prospects, So I'd figured they might/may take a chance.

If the first 13 teams pass on Grigorenko, after the Erixon fiasco, I really doubt the Flames take him.

Can't afford another miss.

Another miss? Baertschi looks like a stud already. You guys got one of the best players in the draft last year IMO.

Yes, Sven looks like a very good pick, but we lost Erixon from the 2009 draft and had no first round pick in the 2010 draft. The team simply cannot go 1 for 4 in the first round of the last 4 drafts.

The Flames have weak prospect depth at both centre and defence. If Grigorenko and Ceci are there at 14, I strongly believe that Feaster picks the kid without the personality issues.

Feaster is all for picking the skilled players of the draft, but I feel this risk is more suited for a team that can afford to take it, like Washington.

I'm down to take a defenseman in the first round, but the Caps have a bunch of NHLers at the moment (Carlson, Alzner, Green, Hamrlik, Orlov, Schultz) and while the D cabinet is pretty thin, Wey, Kundratek, and Marshall can shore it up for a while. I'm just of the opinion that a guy like Grigorenko is the kind of player that has a lot of synergy with Johansson and a finisher, and kind of plays like Backstrom-lite. If you can get that at 11, personality risk aside, you've got to take that, especially if he impresses in camp and earns the spot a lot of people wanted him to take out of camp in Montreal.

With such a weak FA crop and general lack of solid 2C options, Grigorenko is only about as risky as "good" options like Jokinen in my book.

Cause they would be picking Hertl? Flyers would be taking f'ing Tom Wilson.

Sure, but Grigorenko has a much greater probability of being an impact player than anyone available after him in this mock.

Your opinion is that Calgary should take the safe pick to avoid a potential bust, but I see it in a way that we NEED to take these kinds of risks to get out of the mediocrity we currently find ourselves in.

Character speculation aside, Grigorenko is the best player available and addresses a huge need in both our prospect pool, and current roster. I would be livid if such an opportunity was missed.

Tampa won't pass on Trouba for a forward unless it's Yak, Grigs, Galy, or Collberg.

Ok is it just me or is there a TOP 17 in this draft?

Every fricken mock draft I see has the same 17 players going in the 1st 17 picks so the Hawks don't end up with anyone I want.

I agree that we wouldn't pass on Trouba, but if the top 4 D are all gone I'd take Teuvo over Collberg.

I don't think Ceci is a safe pick. He's a high skilled, top scoring defenceman.

I think don't even see Grigorenko signing an ELC with the Flames if he's drafted by us.

Might not look very good, but I think this could be how the draft legitly goes.
