I would like to thank all the MOD's on here for doing a wonderful job once again. It has been said before this mock draft is the best one on HFBoards by a mile. Also to my fellow drafters thanks for keeping this going quickly. Like also has been said the 7th round is for longshots so here it goes
The Toronto Maple Leafs select from the Kingston Voyageurs Tier 2 team Goalie Charlie Finn
Charlie moved from Vancouver to Kingston this year and starred with the Voyageurs. He had a 1.98 GAA during the regular season with a .933 SA In the playoffs he had a 2.68 GAA and a .927 SA
We feel we had an excellent draft this year. Our picks were
Not sure how much work other mods put in here, but I did none. Most of the credit belongs to habsfan18.
I have to say....pretty interesting drat as far as I was concerned. Not only was I the GM of a team that changed cities in the middle of it....but I also was the GM of a team that changed GM in the end of it....pretty interesting...
Anyway, for the , their last pick of this draft, the 205th pick belong to a guy we can't wait believe lasted that long, forward Yannick Veilleux of the Shawinigan Cataractes.
I'd go as far as to think the ratio rank/quality, we've just made a great pick. Veilleux is big, skates well for a guy his size, use his body wisely, good offensive instincts. If he can work on being more agile, there's still some interesting tools to work with as far as he's concerned.
Next GM was PM'ed.
Detroit 2011 draft picks with GM (Harry I) and Asst.-GM (Whitesnake)
2nd Round: Miikka Salomaki 3rd Round: Maxim Shalunov 4th Round: Marek Tvrdon 5th Round: Eddie Wittchow 6th Round: Steven Fogarty 7th Round: Nikita Zaytsev
I am really happy with the results of the draft and LA would be lucky to end up with a draft like that. IMO several of those guys will go higher than I drafted them in this mock draft, for example I doubt Wittchow lasts until the 5th or Fogarty until the 6th, I would be surprised.
Thanks to habsfan18 for organizing the mock draft, really well done and we did it all in record time I think without many people missing picks .. amazing job.
