I had the idea of a thread where we can post our bold predictions about the upcoming draft. It'll be nice for that "I freakin' called it factor" and so that we can get more opinions that are contrary to popular belief out there without everyone having to go through the time and trouble of making a mock draft. My 3 Bold Predicitons 1)Tommy Cross goes top 20. Severely underrated around here, a team takes a flyer early on the youngest defenseman in the draft. Sure the fact that he hasn't faced elite competition makes him a bit of a questionmark, but he is a questionmark with superb hockey sense and poise, skating, passing, and size. 2) Someone is going to take Juraj Valach top 50. Initially I thought about making this prediction about him going first round, but decided that was a bit too bold. Some GM though is going to have visions of drafting their very own Chara and go for the homerun with this monster. It's not a bad idea especially when you consider that his skating really isn't that bad at all.
