TSN Top 30 Mock draft

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/feature/?fid=7065&hubname=

TSN has us picking Mark Mitera. I don't mind the pick, he seems like a solid all-round defenceman.

Where is he going to school next year?

I would not be verry happy if this is who the Habs end up with!

If he is the best we can get I would hope BG pulls a fast one to move either up or down in the draft!

I don't think Mitera is going to become more than a bottom pairing D. That's not the kind of player I would aim for in the first round.

Mitera is already at Michigan, same school as Jack Johnson.

I'd be extremely dissapointed if he was our pick with Stewart, Summers and Alexandrov still on board.

Me too...he might be a safer pick, but the upside isn't there IMO...

Alexandrov would be better for sure.

As for the mock, it's a good one. Not much big surprises, so it's a safe mock after all.

With those little "notes" they seem to be leaning a little more towards team needs then BPA

Mitera is a Jay McKee type d-man... If he develops the same game, I'd be very happy with this pick!

Well, if it's not one of the concensus picks like the ones you state above, I am afraid we are going to have the same kind of idiotic armchair GM reaction we have had the last two years with the Chipchura and Price picks. I am convinced that some one will lose it and go over to the Leafs board and renounce their allegiance to the Habs just because the team selected a kid the armchair internet hockey guru had not anticipated.

The draft, for me, loses a lot of it's luster when you come on here and try to read remarks from the very few who actually know what they are talking about, but instead end up with endless whinining drivel from hoards of people who think they are professional scouts.

Hey I love surprises and all but a solid pick is a solid pick and Mitera is as solid as you get. Granted, I'll probably sit glum for a week before coming home to roost.

BTW I'd be happy with Mitera. He seems like a very safe pick. That's a good thing where we are picking!

YEAHHHHHHHHHH

Congratulations, Mitera has just been the 100th player which is likely to be taken by Habs Saturday according to all the mock draft

People overrates the fact that we need Dmen and that we'll draft one for sure in the first round. Obyrne and Emelin are emerging as top 4 dmen of the future, Komisarek is still young, Coté should be part of this team future and i still have hopes for Korpikari.

For many experts its a given that we'll draft a Dman in the first round but im not so sure of that...

It seems that there are a lot of late 1st/2nd round Dmen in this year's draft. I would guess that a decent one might be around for the Habs 2nd rounder.

NHL's men should find another way to determine drafts order...

Pittsbugh have 2 of the best young players in the world in Crosby and Malkin and are gonna draft another elite player at the next draft.. Quite unfair!

For the 100th time: Drafting hockey player is a mix of black art, voodo and crap shot.
We can talk about it for a year and end up with a player no one expect, like Price last year. I must say I was pi$$ off by the pick last year, but with the hinsight I feel a lot better about it.

Bottom line, I am so sure Gainey will pull a trick up is sleeve again this year, it will be fun to watch.

This is certianly an optimistic view about our defensive prospects. Emelin has shown he might be an NHL in waiting, but I don't know if he would be top 4, and O'Byrne can't be considered anything but a darkhorse NHL'er right now. I don't think too many in habs management is convinced of his ability to be a top 4 guy at the NHL level. Cote certainly could be a part of the teams future, but again, I dunno if he is worthy of a 'top 4' label, and Korpikari is a longshot at best.

I totally agree with you on this point however. I'm sure Gainey has a list with a bunch of prospects names on it. They are probablely ranked #1 to #whatever (I'm not sure how many names are on the list). I'm sure the list has forwards, dmen and even a goalie or two's name on it. When pick number #16 comes up (if we haven't traded up or down by then), Gainey will go to the podium and selected the highest remaining player on his list. If it's a dman, he will selected a dman, if it's a forward, etc. etc.

You could say we were is a similiar position as far as defenseman needs at this point last year and didn't select a dman man until 228 other names had been announced, so.....

1. Why would we go that far in the left field?
2. Why would everyone pass on Nigel Williams.
3. Why would we pass on Vishnevsky and Alexandrov who are arguably way better (from what I read...)
4. Why would we draft an average Dman with our 1st rounder when there are still some outstanding players left, e.g. Chris Stewart.

Based on what has been written about the "D's" available in this draft everyone after EJ is a crap shoot.

So personally I would take the forward with the best upside at #16 and then look at defencemen in the 2nd or 3rd.

There is always the chance of moving a roster player to pick up an additional 2nd rounder as well.

I wouldn't even mind trading down if the draft goes like that. In 2004, the NY Rangers traded their 2nd round pick to move up from 24th to 19th overall. If a team drafting say 23-25th overall offered a second round pick to move up to 16th I would consider doing it. Quite sure we could still get a Mitera or a Foligno, Giroux at that pick. Give us an extra second rounder to add a Gryba or Hillier
