The only big problem I have with this mock is #5, I see Carolina taking Nichuskin and even if they decide not to pick Nichuskin because of the Russian factor or whatever than I think they would also pick Monohan or nurse before lindholm. I see lindholm going to the flames. And Rychel is a bit too high IMO but that's just net picking
would be so happy with that as the sabres first round...though i'd think about taking wennberg instead of lazar at 16. also i've heard a lot about tampa loving nichuskin so i could see him going there at 3
the Oilers have been squawking about (finally!) taking a goalie higher in the draft than they usually do, likely due to the fact that Olivier Roy and Tyler Bunz have had their problems adjusting to the pro game. with this in mind, if Zack Fucale was still sitting there at #37, the Oilers would take him without hesitation. in the 1st round, the Oilers simply will not pass on Nichuskin, the big talented potential power forward they have been long looking for, to take Darnell Nurse, though Nurse is still a great pick at #7.
and i'd be surprised if, at #56, the Oilers passed on the big and tough Ismail-Diaby for Eric Roy. i'd just be downright pizzed if they did that!!
