I think it should go as the NHL goes. As much as I would like to select earlier; I want it to be legit.

Do what you want, but if we do that, we won't be able to show that mock draft on the mock draft board and have feedback on it because it will not be legit. Anyways, your call...

Let's stick to your rules.

I understand the fact that we have jobs, I do too, I just have the possibility to visit the site once in a while during the day as well. Might not be possible for the next job though...

Anyway, for the guys that can't follow the rules of the 12 hours we should either have a guy that will always be available and will do the picks for them AND specify that if you have any doubts whatsoever that won't make yourself available for that thread, just don't apply to it. There are guys that weren't able to participate who would be really available for this.

That's all. It's a thread that demands availability. If you can't be available don't participate in it, especially if we go for 3 rounds....We had trouble finishing 2 rounds last year....

They were not blaming you, but actually wanted your PoV about it. You just weren't present to give it.

It's his call. I believe we should have voiced it much earlier than that though. It won't be legit? Well so be it....chances are we won't even have time to finish anyway.....

the only thing guys, is that we don't know the real order of the 2nd or 3rd round.

Can someone post an accurate one? Is there a list of the trades involving 2nd and 3rd round picks?

alright guys, I'm going to be pretty busy tomorrow but I'll be on tomorrow night.

We'll put the draft on hold until tomorrow night then we'll figue out what we're going to do.

If anyone can post an accurate round 2 and 3 list, it'd be much appreciated.

I take 1st round order with the trades on Wikipedia. If you like it, I'll do the 3rd round also. With 3 2nd round pick for Washington and Phoenix, they could get a very stong draft. Nashville too, with 2 1st and 2 2nd...

If anything make one mock snake and one not snake and try to be selective when picking GMs. There are alot of guys here that ive never seen on that are still in the mock. If they cant be active usually, why would they be now?

Agreed. I'd say keep it the way it is and this could be a test to see who is actually around to do this thing and you can make a real mock draft afterwards and select GM's based on performance here. Make it after the Cup Finals so we know the final order and we could have a real good one. People might want to change picks after the Memorial Cup anyways or anything that happens in the near future.

Next time we do a mock draft, we should sent pm invitation to poster who know their stuff about the upcoming draft and poster who are well know and regular here so we dont wait forever for someone to make their pick.

alright guys, we'll take Kaptain Begin's round 2 list and use that.

Then we'll worry about round 3 when round 2 is done.

Nashville is on the clock.

The Nashville Predators are really happy to select...From the Val d'Or Foreurs, Maxime Sauvé !

"We really want to have more punch upfront and this skilled forward sounds like the perfect choice. He didn't get much icetime in Québec pu he literally exploded in Val d'Or. We are really happy to get him in Nashville".

Woot, I'm picking sooner.

Then again, I always pick very late in the NFL draft so I'm okay with either way.
