We're doing a mock draft at HW and we got a few spots that still need to be filled, if anyone's interested.

We got Anaheim, Carolina, Dallas, Detroit, Montreal, Ottawa, Philadelphia, Phoenix, St.Louis, Vancouver and Washington still open.

Easy, mock draft, we mock until the 28th, so it could be just 1 round, we could finish with all 7 rounds.

With the second round over and San Jose eliminated, the 3rd rounder Minnesota received for our boy Shep is 81st overall.

Here's what the Wild have draft-pick wise:
Minnesota Wild 2013 Draft Picks
1- No Selection
2- 46th overall
3- 70th overall*
3- 81st overall**
4- 107th overall
5- 137th overall
6- 167th overall
7- 197th overall
7-200th overall***

Notes:
1) Minnesota's first round selection (16th overall) was traded April 3, 2013 to Buffalo along with a 2014 second, Matthew Hackett and Johan Larsson for Jason Pominville and a 4th round pick in 2014.

3) Minnesota's third round selection (76th overall) was traded June 27, 2011 to Philadelphia for Darroll Powe.

*Minnesota conditionally acquired this pick from New Jersey on February 25, 2012 along with Kurtis Foster, Stephane Veilleux and Washington's 2012 2nd round selection (46th overall) for Marek Zidlicky. The conditions, that New Jersey makes it to the Eastern Conference Finals and Zidlicky plays in 75% of the Devils' games, were met May 8, 2012.

**Minnesota acquired this pick from San Jose on August 6, 2011 for James Sheppard.

***Minnesota conditionally acquired this pick from New York Rangers on February 3, 2012 along with Erik Christensen for Casey Wellman. The condition, that Christensen not re-sign with the Wild, was met June 5, 2012 when he signed with HC Lev.

So do we trade some draft pieces or a player to acquire another 2nd rounder or do we say screw the 2nd, and possibly third, or a 2nd + player, to get a first rounder and have nothing in 2nd?

16th overall...

Should be interesting to see what players are available at that point.

Odds we pick Jablonski with the 200th pick?

With our luck he's going to be available by some miracle : http://instagram.com/p/Z8dqMmKHzZ/#

Hey, if we can have not one, but TWO goalies get injured within 4 playoff games, he can be available at the pick we gave up.

The "someone related to Nanne" is Vinni Lettieri.

Don't believe he's draft-eligible.

just a heads up, Future Considerations released our Draft Guide today.

I got my copy, and it looks great; I'm really proud of the work we did for it. So go drop some duckets and get it; you can get a .pdf or print it out into a hard copy.

I would try to target a pick which could land Samuel Morin. Seems really like a guy Wilds defense could use badly. Big guy, like to use his body.

I had a dream a few nights ago that we traded into the first round (I don't remember for sure in the dream what we gave up but I thought it was Clutterbuck?) and picked Shea Theodore.

I'll be completely honest, outside of the top 3, I haven't studied the draft nearly as much this year (and pretty much stopped reading after the Pominville trade), so without me knowing anything about other prospects, is Shea Theodore supposed to be any good? Ha ha. I only recalled his name due to playing GM mode on NHL 13 is my guess.

I will say, I have a feeling we're going to try and acquire a first rounder though. Probably by trading Clutterbuck or Setoguchi.

I agree. Fletcher has something up his sleeve. He always makes moves for the future and it all fits into his own little puzzles. I certainly hope we move into the first round and get a good d-man or winger.

Arguably the best offensive defenseman in the draft, better than Jones IMO. Problem is, he is very lanky so he has a tough time handling players along the boards. He isn't void of defensive play, he is just ineffective because of the lack of strength.

He isn't a dangle or evasive type of defenseman or even a QB on the PP IMO, but his passing accuracy is breathtaking. Every pass he makes, whether be the small chip passes or difficult "thread the needle" type, it hits bang on the tape of his teammate. He can make beautiful stretch passes and breakout plays. And I do mean EVERY pass he makes is spot on.

If you want a defenseman who can find those breakaway passes, Theodore is your man (boy?).

Slightly risky because of the work he needs to do off the ice but his upside is huge. 10-20 pick IMO

Thanks for the info, I think I would take a chance on him but I don't see us getting 10th - 20th. Damn.

If you want an offensive defenseman that we might have a better chance of getting, Tommy Vannelli sounds interesting to me.

Madison Bowey is also good. He needs a bit refining on his all-round game but his ability to breakout the puck is one of the best in the draft. Not going to be a QB on an NHL #1 PP or even a great offensive defenseman, but he is very smart in relieving the pressure off the defensive zone. A bit like Jonas Brodin in the way he moves the puck out of the zone, but without the consistent rock solid defensive reads.

Santini is also a good one, seeing how we need some toughness on our blueline. Santini isn't a headhunter by any means but he's strong and makes it tough to play against.

I just can't see why the Wild would want to move significant pieces for a long-term prospect. They cashed in a bunch of chips for Pominville and signed Parise and Suter who will probably be most effective for the next few years. They're basically in win-now mode and this isn't the NFL where a low first round draft pick can be a big contributor right away.

If anything, I see him getting more mid-round picks to draft more boom or bust guys. That would make a hell of a lot more sense than drafting a kid who, if he makes it at all, will probably do so when the Wild's big name players are in their early- to mid-30's.
