Thoese two mock drafts are quite interesting. With a low pick I'd be confindent with one of the ones below. I like a lot what they bring to the table, but who knows maybe some of the higher ranked prospects fall (Liljegren, Pettersson or Kostin)

Sasha Chmelevski
Nick Suzuki
Martin Necas
Kristian Vesalainen

Tbh, I still think this draft has some very nice players.

I want Chmelevski. Yamamoto too but I don't think he's Madden's type of player.

I'd love to get Yamamoto if he's still available when we pick. He's risky, but we could use somebody with that much skill in the system.

As far as the draft is concerned, I really hope we can get one of these guys in the first round: Cody Glass, Martin Necas or Nick Suzuki. I'm a big fan of Suzuki, the guy can do it all on the ice. It's not like he's a small guy, but if he was two inches taller he could go top 10 this year.

Yamamoto (size?), Strome (skating?) and Popugayev (skating?) are the wild card picks of the draft. If you're looking for pure potential and you're willing to take a gamble, you pick one of these guys. Tippett and Vesalainen fall into the "do not draft in the first round" category.

Necas is probably a top 15 pick at this point. He's a well rounded prospect.
I like Glass and Suzuki, also.

Watching London frequently, I really like the game of Alex Formenton. I don't know if he is a first rounder but I wouldn't mind him with one of our seconds.

Formenton would be a good second rounder, as would fellow Knight Robert Thomas, I think. I'd add Jared Anderson-Dolan and Jesper Boqvist to that list as well.

I wonder if we shoud just start a draft thread already?

I want nothing to do with Strome. He's the least skilled and worst skater of the brothers, I think he only gets ranked as highly as he does because of his name. Cody Glass I'd also like, but he's been rising and chances are we won't be able to get him. I like Yamamoto because this draft doesn't seem that strong, and it's a year that I would have no issue swinging for the fences with a first rounder. Likely he's not around, but you never know.

The primary points thing is certainly cutting out some of the argument that his points come off his ridiculously high-scoring team. Especially when considering he's not doing it with the type of linemates Marner had. That's obviously not to draw any conclusions beyond this very campaign.

Will be pretty interesting to see what happens next camp. He has another year of junior eglibility, so the AHL is not an option, but he's obviously making a case as good as anyone that he's too good to go back to his junior league.

Yeah his primary points is more than I expected, which is nice to see.

Still, need to wait and see him compete in some other league or torunament to get more convinced but we always knew he was a project. He will keep us talking for a while that`s for sure

I agree he's making/made that case, but I hope management doesn't rush him. If he has a good camp then he should get 9 games, but I don't trust Randy to give him the minutes he'd need to develop, unless he has a seamless transition and starts producing immediately. Otherwise I'd rather see him try for another playoff run and have a big role for Canada at the WJC.

Max Jones isn't playing tonight in London's game. Not a great sign.

At the bottom of this article Jones is listed as day-to-day.

damn good thing we got Steel in that draft. All these injuries for Jones is not a good sign.

Unfortunately, the London organization seems to have taken some pages from the Ducks' playbook, at least when it comes to releasing info to the public. We only know that Jones didn't finish the game vs Niagara a week ago, but they never reported whether this was precautionary or an actual injury.

Then again, it seems that there could be an illness going through their lineup, as Cliff Pu and Sam Miletic are also mysteriously missing from tonight's lineup (per London twitter). Even the London fans are wondering what's going on.

Well isn't that just awesome.

In better news, Steel has scored in the first period.

I'm watching the game. He's playing incredibly well. Nearly assisted a third goal off a 2-on-1 while working a 5-on-3 penalty kill...lmao

Steel scores a redirection goal on a 4-on-4. 13 minutes remain in the game

Unbelievable. Is he driving play like his production would indicate?

Without question. Paddock, Regina's coach, couldn't ask Steel to do more.
