    I'm surprised to see Gagner go top 5, and Cherepanov drop so far down to 12... but I have no problem with the Leafs getting Esposito at 13 :D

    Thanks guys!

    I just don't see the Rangers passing up Eller if he's there at 19. Rockstrom's been all over this kid since the beginning of the new year. His opinion holds sway, and if he's there, I gotta believe the Rangers will grab him in a heartbeat. In fact, I would not be shocked to see the Rangers try to trade up to get him.

    Only one round? That's my only complaint.

    Eller is too low and Plante too high.
    I hope Edmonton don't choose Plante with the #15 pick.
    Earliest with their #36 pick...

    If the Habs select another Russian over Esposito and on top of that Espo would go to the Leafs, the city of Montreal would implode.

    Although this mock scenario is feasible, in the Habs bizarro world that mixes sports, politics, nationalism, ignorance - this cannot and will not happen.

    Hmm I like the mock. Don't think the Leafs could pass up Esposito if he falls to them. Great job on this one.

    Decent effort. I don't see Sweatt slipping out of the first round though.

    Yes! More Americans! I don't think the Avs will pass on Sweatt if he's there.

    great! so let me see, has drafting another cupcake overhyped russian and small D man?
    umm, don't think so.

    they'll take esposito over cherapanov or a latendresse type or a big center...and the D man they take will be bigger

    ...also why would habs not take a potential local superstar over a guy who may be locked in russia for several years? this makes zero sense

    I agree, I hope Edmonton gets Eller or Mayorov instead at #15.

    It's quite amazing how this entire board has become idiots with regards to Cherepanov, and all because of Kyle Woodlief of all people. I suppose next year a prospect will get dumped on because of a bad scouting report by Eklund. :sarcasm:

    Whether it be logical or not, I HIGHLY doubt that the habs pass up on 2 Quebec born players with back to back pics in Esposito and Perron. And with all of the trouble they've had bringing Emelin over, I can't see them drafting Cheraponov to wait 2-3 years to get him over. And that's assuming he falls that far.

    Based on my own (admittedly less informed) opinions, I have to say that this is a surprising mock. As a Sens fan, I'd be hugely disappointed if they select Joakim Andersson at 29th - I hate using 1st rounders on "safe picks," which means in other words he hasn't got much offensive upside. Senators have more than enough bottom six forwards, IMO. I would hope the Sens take a flyer on one of the d-men available at that point - if that is how the draft goes, hearing the Sens say Ian Cole's name would make me awfully happy.

    The other obvious question marks are around selections of guys like Cherepanov, Espo, Eller and probably Gillies as well. Although I do see him going to the Pens, somehow.

    This is all good food for thought, though. Great job to the writers! :handclap:

    This mock is ridiculous because Shero always takes the BPA and Eller is much better than Gillies. I can't believe HF writers with all of their hockey knowledge think that the Pens would want Gillies in the 1st Round. Maybe 2nd, but not first.

    I'd rather get Hamill there and Cross at 30, but any of those would be great too. Plante? If he's drafted by EDM I'll become a fan, but until then? hmmm...
