NHL Dream Draft

So, the NHL.com is announcing the best 1st round picks by number every day, up until the 2013. draft.

They started with #30 today, but take into account that draft with 30 first round pick have happened only from 2001.

Simon Despres has the honor as the best ever #30 first round pick, but second best spot takes (hopefully also next season) Ducks Steckel, who was picked by Kings in 2001 and #3 spot takes Rakell who was picked by Ducks in 2011.

Good to see Rakell getting some attention (well, sort of)

Next up:

#29 pick.
In first round, Ducks have picked only 1 player with #29 overall, and that is Emerson Etem. He could be at least mentioned.

I'm sure he'll be mentioned, but I figure they'll have Green and Downie ahead of him, in that order.

In a couple of years I think Rakell will be regarded as a better pick than Despres.

#29 will be Green, Kronwall, Downie and Etem I think...in that order.

I missed Kronwall. That is probably the correct order. Etem may not get mentioned if they only list the top three.

Oh, yeah, Green, Kronwall and Downie could be ahead of Etem, i didn`t looked who were picked by other teams.

Etem still has lots in him, though.

I think it's safe to say we have #28 locked up. #29 should be Green.

Despres was a good choice at 30.

Rakell being an HM at #30 is a bit telling of how poor the quality has been at that pick. He's certainly a promising prospect, but that's a far cry from being a great player. I suspect he will be superior to Steckel, but that's in the future. The same would hold true for Etem at #29.

Well, he was pretty good at one point.

No surprise with Perry
