Velociraptor's Annual Mock Draft - 2013

Hello everyone! For the fifth consecutive year, I will be hosting a Mock Entry Draft based on the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, this has been a very successful project for the past five years and it is a process that usually takes a couple of months.

We will tentatively begin on MONDAY, APRIL 22ND, 2013. I'll decide the order a few days in advance, which will be the NHL standings at the time, the draft board will follow accordingly. There will be a separate thread for drafting, to divide the discussion between signing up and picking. You can begin drafting on the 22nd at Midnight EST, but the clocks will not begin until 12 noon EST, in case a manager is unable to pick due to sleep.

***sign up below***

RULES:

1. 1 team per poster, and you must have 500 posts to your credibility, 300 if registered user. (**NOTE** If you can promise me that you will stay active throughout the entire duration of this draft, I will let you participate, but you will be on a shorter leash than other GM's, because usually some newer HF members tend to lose interest or disappear, we want to keep this to a minimum.)
2. Standard draft board, seven rounds, two hundred and ten selections
3. There is no trading involved this year.
4. We will be following a 8 hour clock, if you miss your turn you are skipped, you will be given an additional 12 hours to make that pick while the draft resumes. If you fail to make a selection in this time window, you will be assigned a consensus selection (best player available) by me or another GM, it will need to be confirmed by one other manager. If it is a recurring incident (without an excuse) I have no choice but to kick you from the draft. We want to keep this at a fast & fun pace so we all get our share of drafting. I will consider having a window overnight (something like 12AM-6AM ET) where the clock stops, but I will have to shorten the clock because we have about two months to draft 210 players.
5. Drafting from the 2013 Entry Draft Class (Jones, MacKinnon, etc.)
6. The order will be picked from the NHL standings to the night prior to start time, this means you have to consider potential movement up and down when dealing draft picks.
7. Any trades that happen in the NHL from now until the start date will NOT affect the draft board. What the draft board is at right now, is the one we follow. (i.e. Colorado's first round selection still belongs to Washington, but any trade that would happen over the next month would not change the draft board) But all trades as of the trade deadline are taken into account.
8. You MUST notify the GM drafting after you via personal message, I cannot stress this enough. This is by far the most important process of the mock draft. We all have lives, so were not always looming the thread. Please try your very hardest to remember. And guys, even if your just dawdling around the board, feel free to drop the GM a notice. It's always appreciated so we can keep a healthy flow here. Try and acknowledge in your draft post that you have notified the next manager on the clock.
9. HAVE FUN! Nothing too serious, it's all for a good time, no one get too serious. We all want this to be a fun experience so everybody has a good time. These are always a blast and last somewhere from a month and a half to two months. So let's have some fun here guys. For some information regarding draft prospects, Central Scouting Services (most reliable free rankings IMO) http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=610982 has recently posted their Mid-Season rankings, and you can check out a couple of mock drafts at http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=6...id=DL|NHL|home.
10. This isn't a GM game, it is a mock draft. So I won't be focusing on free agency, re-signings or buyouts. Just drafting prospects, you are able to do as you wish (re-sign, etc.) but you won't need my clarification and such as it is not the point of this draft.

All the best guys, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to drop me a personal message or post on the thread, I'd be obliged to answer any of your questions, Thanks!

I didn't really revise my rules because I copied and pasted the template from last year.

Alright folks, we're starting tomorrow! FLA (HockeyRulez) is free to select at 12 AM ET on Monday (5h15 from now) but the clock will not start until 12 PM ET.

Colorado's long-serving manager in the draft is yet to get back to me, so if he doesn't select I will pick for them by selecting the best player available. Here is the first round:

ROUND 1

1. FLA HockeyRulez selects:
2. COL Hasbro selects:
3. CAR DaveG selects:
4. TB Backstrom #19 selects:
5. NSH MDZ selects:
6. CGY Hitmen Heart selects:
7. EDM Joey Moss selects:
8. PHI BillyShoe1721 selects:
9. BUF Jesker selects:
10. NJ kaelanstorm selects:
11. PHX 7even selects:
12. DAL Modo selects:
13. DET Cup selects:
14. WPG Holden Caulfield selects:
15. CBJ Timeless Winter selects:
16. CBJ (via NYR) Timeless Winter selects:
17. MIN danccchan selects:
18. WSH Langway selects:
19. OTT Hale The Villain selects:
20. NYI CodeE selects:
21. CGY (via STL) Hitmen Heart selects:
22. TOR TribalPhoenix selects:
23. SJ VikingAv selects:
24. CBJ (via LA) Timeless Winter selects:
25. VAN Velociraptor selects:
26. MTL zaluty selects:
27. BOS Kirk- NEHJ selects:
28. ANA ManByng selects:
29. CGY (via PIT) Hitmen Heart selects:
30. CHI thefeebster selects:

I will post a separate drafting thread where all picks will be made, this thread is no longer of use. I will post Rounds 2 through 7 tomorrow.

Best of luck, everyone!

Oh, and in this case, Dallas would have Boston's 1st round pick.
