I'm fine with the Jets taking any one of Trouba, Faksa, or Reinhart (who was previously expected to go between 7th and 10th) so I'm fine with the result of this mock draft. However those 3 preferences are based on the assumption that Grigorenko doesn't fall even to 9th.
I don't know about the combine but Reinhart was awesome during the Oil Kings playoff run

Oh Pierre do your homework. Why the hell would Kings draft a goalie? They have Bernier, Gibson, Zatkoff, Jones and Berube behind Quick.

Vancouver and LA taking goalies in the first round? Highly doubtful to me

Murray, Maatta and Ceci are the only ones with a real shot, but Maatta's chances are very low. Pierre just trying to sneak in a "I told you so" moment. He throws enough comments like that around he can make himself look pretty smart down the road. He's by far not the only one that does that though.

Weird mock draft. While I could see Grigorenko fall, 17 is really low for him. No way that happens. If he goes to 12 I'd be shocked.

I think the first 5 picks make a lot of sense, starting with Anaheim, it becomes absurd. No idea why we would take Rielly. Well let me put it this way: If we pick him, I'd be seriously bummed. At 6, you gotta look at Grigorenko, Teravainen, Faksa, Dumba or Trouba. Maybe even Maatta or Ceci.

Anyway, I wouldn't read too much into that. Button has some weird opinions sometimes and McGuire is a straight up idiot. Want proof? He would trade 3rd overall and Subban for 1st.


I hope teams gof off board with some picks and the Ducks can grab Forsberg and run for their lives

The only thing more strange than this mock draft, will be the actual NHL draft.

So you're saying this will be the best mock out there?

I am no expert in Swedish and Finnish hockey, or geography for that matter, but looking at Forsberg at Number 5, this doesn't seem right: Leksand (FIN)

LA already took Christopher Gibson last year with a 2nd. Think they will pass on a goalie unless they really think goalie is the BPA by quite a margin at 30th

Certain players hyped before the draft always fall - you think hockey fans would be used to this by now. Not saying Grigs will fall for sure, but it wouldn't surprise me.

I agree, but also he is 1 year or half younger than many other top there. Also his playoff points was awesome, if he was Canadian here was more for him, but maybe it's better that there is just one Fin who people won't praise so much. And his best thing is defensive or all-around, but he really has so much potential in offensive game too.

Im not sold that the only center/forward in the draft to produce significantly over a PPG last season is going to fall to 17th. Not sure what im missing. The reports had him at #2 at the end of the season.. Does contracting mono/ missing the combine really drop you 15 spots? I'd be disappointed if Toronto passes on him at 5 TBH. However i would be a lot less disappointed if we ended up with Forsberg or Galchenyuk.

Yeah in that mock Caps had the chance to grab Teravainen and Grigs

It's because people out east saw him play. Even though the Oil Kings didn't do well in the Memorial Cup Reinhart got better round by round throughout the playoffs.

No, having a lazy work ethic, questionable age, and inconsistent play drops you to 17th.

While I do think he falls, i hope the Caps take a flyer on him at 11.

Montreal would be happy with Galchenyuk

Please, God. Let that happen. If Collberg is available at #28 I might wet myself.

In case people didn't know or forgot, Button picked 7/8 first picks correct last year, which practically everyone here and many other media experts failed to do.

If Colberg reports to the 33th rank, i'd be more than happy.

He got better as the year went on and had a great WHL playoffs. That can cause a player to rise immensely.

I'm basing my feeling the chance is very low on several things. The first off he is still very young, pretty much a year younger than Murray and half a year than Ceci. Secondly, he only has one year CHL under his belt where the other two have 3 years each. Thirdly, while he showed very well in the playoffs, its just a small stretch (albeit an important one). Ceci has been close to averaging what Maatta did in the playoffs over the last 1.5 years, Murray is not really offensive enough to look at that stat.

Maatta does, however, have a consistent defensive game and size, which is the only reason I'd give him any chance.

Realistically, its hard to break into the league as a first year draftee on D. And many who do shouldn't.

I wonder if that was a jab at the Habs for not making him the GM... Sort of saying that the Oilers should take advantage of Bergevin's lack of experience or something. Good on Duthie for telling him it didn't make much sense.
