If the Kings get Kane, Rajala and Beck I would be quite happy with the Kings draft.....Good work Tony.

No complaints from a Devils fan point of view in the first two rounds. Don't know much about the two picks in the third.

Yea, really. If we wind up getting John Moore at 23 I'll be absolutely thrilled.

out of all the teams, considering where they were picking and who they picked, Nashville's draft impresses me the most. Great job Enoch, i really like some of your guys. Josefson is a good pick for your organization and i'm higher on Button than most (or more forgiving of his defensive play at this point, i suppose). Keeping the defensive system stocked can never hurt on a team driven by salary concerns, as defencemen will always get better trade returns and forwards can be brought in cheap through free agency and trades.

To my own mod, TMV, i'd say i'm pretty happy with your choices. I'd have loved to get any of the guys picked 1-8, but none of them fell, so OEL is a good consolation prize. I'm higher on a lot of 2nd round defencemen than palmeri (leddy, button, olsen, orlov, to name a few taken immediatley after 39), but if you were drafting for need that's not a bad choice. Mike Lee is a guy that will take a while to develop, but could very well be a star starter in this league if all goes well. Solid draft and addresses our main concerns for the future: 1 1st pair d-man, 1 #1 goalie, 1 top-6 forward.

edit: Wow, just noticed Howse falling all the way to the oilers at 82. Again, someone i'm high on. Since basically everyone passed on him where i would have taken him, what do you guys not like about him?

Personally, I really hope we do not draft Holland. From what I've heard he seems like more of a safe pick with limited offensive potential. I think Leblanc has a much higher ceiling from what I've watched and from playing against him for a good number of years.

Thanks for sharing that. Always nice to look at a mock draft and see what others are thinking.

If Zack Kassian is on the board when Montreal picks (assuming they don't move up into the top eight or so) and they don't pick him, I will not be impressed. My patience with the Habs is running thin. If they have an opportunity to address their biggest weakness and do not, it will be hanging by a thread. We can only hope that Gainey, a former Peterborough Pete, sees the possibilities with Kassian or addresses those shortcomings in some other way.

I wish the Habs would trade down and pick up an extra 2nd in doing so. Give us Palmieri and Roussel. Both going to be good players

Actually, the team's biggest weakness is down the middle. More specifically, a lack of big centers (and any bonafide center prospects at all for that matter). I don't know who will turn out to be the better player between Holland and Kassian, but it would make sense that they try to address that issue at this draft and if they believe the difference between the two is negligible, they'll no doubt go for the center.

Come on HF02, you know our second 2nd round pick or our 3rd is going to be used to select Tyson Barrie. Its inevitable.

1) John Tavares -- ok, fair enough. You're getting a franchise guy one way or the other. Me, I'd prefer to build from the blueline on out, but hard to say this is a bad pick. JT will be a strong player to build around.

26) Stefan Elliot -- really? With de Haan and Olsen still on the board? Or forwards like Budish, Klingberg, Palmieri or Tatar? Frankly I have trouble putting Elliot into the second round, never mind the first, but even if you assume he's got the talent, there were still other, better selections available on the board. My pick: Olsen.

31) Jesse Blacker -- I like him a lot, but I'm convinced he would have been available for one of the Isles' many later picks. Any of the players mentioned above would have been stronger choices this early in the second. Assuming I'd taken Olsen with the 26th, I'd take Palmieri here and count myself lucky in getting a great winger for Tavares.

37) Ryan O'Reilly -- This pick I'd have no problem with (he's a great kid who can improve somewhat on his skating, will never be a scorer, but will be a key penalty killer and character leader for a long time), except that the aforementioned Olsen was *still* on the board, as was Palmieri (definite first-round ability) and my pick at this point, Roussel (top-4 2-way defencemen trump PKers in my book).

56) Blake Gallimore -- At least a round early for Gallimore in my book. Brian Dumoulin, Eric Gelinas, Cody Eakin, Jerry D'Amigo and Kenny Ryan are all still on the board here. I'd have a tough time choosing, but might have to go with Dumoulin here.

62) Gleason Fournier -- Meh. Don't see it. Eakin, D'Amigo and Ryan are all still on the board. You could go for D'Amigo as a two-way character forward, but I'd have a tough time denying Ryan's potential as the third component on a line with Palmieri and Tavares.

91) Marcus Foligno -- I've said it before, I'll say it again: if Foligno gets drafted any earlier than the 5th round, it'll be because of his name, not his talent. I mentioned in the Leafs list that Finnish blueliner Sami Vantanen is still on the board here, and he's got a *much* better shot of being a difference maker in the NHL than Foligno does. I haven't gone over my list to see who else might still be around I'd prefer more, but he certainly jumps to mind.

Isles' draft scorecard: C-

I'll start by saying, I'm not a draft guru extrordinaire. I don't have the times, means, or desire.

But I do know enough to hold my own (I think) and I was very surprised when I reviewed the Isles picks. There were a number of bigger name (not that it means everything) players left on the board at 26, 31, 37, etc.

I think they can do better. This draft cannot be a reach draft. Gotta get the guys who have shown he most potential. No room for error this year for the Isles.

I went and picked guys who I thought would do well in our system. Bigger names don't mean anything if they can't fit the system we are developing. I'll admit I did go out on a limb for some of the picks.

I wouldn't mind Werek at 20 for the flames. Although if with Moore still on the board I don't think I would take a pass on him. I know the flames have some good d prospects, but I would easily take Moore.

It was almost a coin flip for me between Morin and Ashton.

I don't have a complaint about the 1st two picks.But the isles are reportedly looking for size and skill.They also lack speed imo.I would rather have 6'3 Ashton,who's very skilled at #31 and either Charles-Olivier Roussel or the skilled Panik at #37.

I know, I was hoping he'd last until the pick in the 3rd. Obviously Len will make note of this mock and take him with the 32nd pick. Other then that brainfart I think I did an ok job.

I have a problem at #26 with Stefan Elliot, No thank you...Rather take Roussel or Olsen with that pick. In reality I would take Morin there if he is still available, probably the best pure scorer in the draft behind Tavares.

Panik I will take HUGE pass on, and I wouldn't touch that pig with a 10 ft pole.

Defense can be learned. Judging by the Wild's philosophy over the last 10 years and their revamped management, 'can't play defense' is not necessarily a bad thing.
