Don't know if this has been done before, but it's a long lockout so I decided I'd try it. I ran a lottery simulation a while back and came up with a draft order which can be seen here. I decided that instead of coming up with a mock draft myself I would have the fans of each team vote on their pick. I'll post the collective results once every fanbase has voted.
The Penguins have the #10 pick. Thus far, Mackinnon, Barkov, Jones, Monahan, Drouin, Lindholm, Shinkaruk, Pulock and Ristolainen have been selected. Who would you take with the 10th overall pick?
Not voting until I can do a little more homework. Domi and Nichushkin are two of my favorites but a guy like Mantha is really sneaking under the radar. He has that Rick Nash/ James Neal vibe to him. Big body, good skater, good hand skills and a nasty shot.
It has to be Valeri Nichushkin. I could see a case for Lazar/Domi, but Nichuskin is the BPA and also fills the organizational need of a big, skilled winger with elite potential. Can't ask for more than that.
Really can't go wrong with a pick in this draft though...it's looking like a good one.
After a very close vote, the Penguins have decided to go with Max Domi. Thank you to everyone who shared their opinion, I will be posting the full results in the Prospect forum once I have collected votes from all 30 teams.
