    This will be my 3rd and final mock draft for the 2004 entry draft. I decided to take a different approach to this mock draft, Enjoy!

    1st Overall - Washington - Alexander Ovechkin
    Pos: Left Wing Height: 6'2 Weight: 212lbs
    THN Rank: 1
    CSS Rank: 1 European Skaters
    03/04 Statistics
    Dynamo/ 53gp - 13g - 10a - 23pts - 42pim

    The Consensus #1 pick in this years 2004 Entry Draft. Ovechkin has loads of talent and his work ethic is second to none. Ovechkin will become the 2nd Russian to be drafted 1st overall (Kovalchuk/01). Alexander comes with a package that includes, good work ethic, strong skating and quick acceleration, accurate and hard shot and the consistency that will make him a franchise player for years to come.

    2nd Overall - Pittsburgh - Evgenii Malkin
    Pos: Centre Height: 6'3 Weight: 187lbs
    THN Rank: 2
    CSS Rank: 2 European Skaters
    03/04 Statistics
    Magnitogorsk/ 34gp - 3g - 9a - 12pts - 12pim

    Malkin is also another lock in the draft, he will be drafted 2nd overall by Pittsburgh with out a doubt. Earlier in the season Malkin suffered a concussion, but his return was nothing shy of awesome, recording 4 goals 2 assists for a +6 rating in the Five Nations Under-19 Tournament. During his year at Magnitorgorsk he was awarded Rookie of the year with his great on ice vision to go along with precise passing and quick shot.

    3rd Overall - Chicago - Rostislav Olesz
    Pos: Centre Height: 6'1 Weight: 202lbs
    THN Rank: 5
    CSS Rank: 3 European Skaters
    03/04 Statistics
    Vitkovice/ 35gp - 1g - 11a - 12pts - 10pim

    Another prospect that as ran into injury problem, Olesz had also suffered a concussion courtesy of Team Canada's defenceman Dion Phaneuf. His key assets lie in his descision making on the ice, knowing when to drive hard to the net and when to play strong defensivley. Chicago will be glad to have him on their forward line with the leaving of Steve Sullivan and Alexei Zhamanov.

    4th Overall - Columbus - Cam Barker
    Pos: Defence Height: 6'3 Weight: 214lbs
    THN Rank: 3
    CSS Rank: 2 North American Skaters
    03/04 Statistics
    Medicine Hat/ 69gp - 21g - 44a - 65pts - 105pim

    Cam Barker is the top defenceman in the 2004 draft for many different reasons one of many being his fairly large size and puckhandling control. He reminds me alot of a younger Rob Blake, because he is constantly on the offensive rush as well has a strong shot from the point. He will become a key asset to the Jackets organization who lacks depth on defence.

    5th Overall - Phoenix - Lauri Tukonen
    Pos: Right Wing Height: 6'2 Weight: 199lbs
    THN Rank: 4
    CSS Rank: 5 European Skaters
    03/04 Statistics
    Espoo/ 35gp - 3g - 3a - 6pts - 16pim

    The highest rated Finish player in the draft and should become a strong power forward. He is more hard working then he is Flash but in the end the job gets done and that is why he is among the top prospects in this years draft. He should become an impact in the NHL sooner then most think.

    6th Overall - New York Rangers - Andrew Ladd
    Pos: Left Wing Height: 6'2 Weight: 200lbs
    THN Rank: 7
    CSS Rank: 1 North American Skaters
    03/04 Statistics
    Calgary/ 71gp - 30g - 45a - 75pts - 119pim

    North America's top forward in this draft should make for a nice fit in the Rangers organization. He lead all rookies in the WHL with 75pts, because of his sharp skating and dazzling moves with the puck.

    7th Overall - Florida - Robbie Shcremp
    Pos: Centre Height: 5'11 Weight: 198lbs
    THN Rank: 10
    CSS Rank: 10 North American Skaters
    03/04 Statistics
    Missisauga & London/ 63gp - 30g - 45a - 75pts - 18pim

    I am personally really high on Robbie Schremp, 2 reasons 1 being that he is a huge offensive threat, definetley one of the top offensive players in this draft and 2 being that he didnt make the WJC USA squad but continued to work hard and put up some solid numbers in Miss. and London. One of the main reasons though that Schremp fell a little in the draft is because many scouts question his attitude off the ice, for example wanting to be traded from Missausaga( dont know full details on why)

    8th Overall - Carolina - A.J Thelen
    Pos: Left Wing Height: 6'3 Weight: 205lbs
    THN Rank: 15
    CSS Rank: 11 North American Skaters
    03/04 Statistics
    Michicgan State/ 42gp - 11g - 18a - 29pts - 46pim

    Thelen proving that the NCAA route to the NHL is a good one, as he is likely to be picked within the top 10. He is a very solid package for a team that lacks defenceman. He comes with a phsycially sound game as well as strong skating and one hard shot that found the back of the net 11 times.

    9th Overall - Anaheim - Drew Stafford
    Pos: Right Wing Height: 6'2 Weight: 202lbs
    THN Rank: 9
    CSS Rank: 7 North American Skaters
    03/04 Statistics
    North Dakota/ 36gp - 11g - 21a - 32pts - 30pim

    Drew, mostly known for his reliability on the ice, hardly making the wrong decision. I like to call him "A Coaches Player" because he can put up some descent numbers, make right choices on the ice and most importantly work hard to maintain his rank as a top forward in the draft. I can see him making a serious impact in Anaheim in a few years.

    10th Overall - Atlanta - Alexander Radulov
    Pos: Right Wing Height: 6'1 Weight: 179lbs
    THN Rank: 13
    CSS Rank: 9 European Skaters
    03/04 Statistics
    Tver/ 42gp - 15g - 16a - 31pts - 102pim

    The crafty Alexander Radulov should make for an excellent fit in Atlanta, playing along side some future superstars. He is a very fast skater that has some creative dangles. Also coming with this package his a hard working player who isnt afraid to get a little phsyical on the ice.

    11th Overall - los Angeles - Marek Schwarz
    Pos: Goalie Height: 6'0 Weight: 180lbs

    Why would the Senators take a goalie? They have 3 good young goalies in the system and a future #1 in Emery.

    I think the Senators are more likely to take a defenseman or a big forward, but that's just my opinion.

    Ouch, would I ever be pissed if the Oilers drafted a goalie and a defensive defensemen in the first. Horrible horrible draft for the Oilers.

    The Oilers need skill right now.

    What, Montoya and Green don't represent skill. That would be a great draft for the Oil. It's all well and fine to say we need a 40 goal sniper, but at the 14 and 25 spot in a weak draft it will be hard to find them. At 14 with Picard and Stafford off the board Montoya would be the smart pick. The Oil scored enough goals last year we lack goaltending and puck smart defenceman.

    By the way nice mock draft #2.

    THN has O'Neill ranked at #36. That doesn't mean much but they're down on his decision-making and his physical play. Even though he has good size.

    Nice draft though I dont think Lepisto will go 1st round, and I think Schremp will drop to the 10-12 range.

    nice draft #2!!

    i think ranger fans would be pretty happy with their picks and the caps also, but i think the caps will take 2 defenseman at the end of the first round since they are rather weak depth wise there -- schultz, wharton, fransson, hedman, lyamin or lepisto

    I have to agree..unless someone really falls down the board Washington can't pass on they'll be selecting two defensemen..Schultz and Fransson would make me extremely happy...I have a funny feeling Schultz will be selected with either of the two first rounders...call it a gut feeling.

    I seriously hope, and doubt Lisin will ever wear the CH of Montreal.

    A soft, disappearing speedster who has absolutely no consistency. Fransson was favoured by Savard last year, if there isn't a slip in the order... I can't see Savard passing on him.

    Nice draft though #2 :D It's always interesting to get a read on what others think the order may go.

    I gotta disagree there :D

    Kastsitsyn showed Major potential all through out his draft year, by great play when focused against his age group.
    Then this year, when finally given top line minutes in Russia Div 1 (the equivalent to CHL in Russia) he not only posted good #'s, but posted on average close to a GPG. He's been pretty consistent over the past few years, and improving on top of it :D

    Lisin on the other hand, has been touted as a speed demon that IMO, lacks hockey sense... We just got rid of a Lisin (report) clone last year in Petrov. We don't need that ilk in Mtl... Esp. for our first pick in the draft. There should be WAY more helpful prospects available at # 18...

    Kastsitsyn was considered a gamble last year... But the pay off is huge... Lisin's payoff is still peanuts, other than a nice set of wheels, this kid has shown little hockey sense (which is why his play selection has been so poor)

    I think Kastitsyn was a great pickup at the 10th overall
