    Is there some unwritten rule, "Calgary must select Bolland in all mock drafts!"? It is quite plausible that the Flames would pick a player like Bolland, but it is bizarre to see him as such a concensus pick for Calgary.

    I truly beleive the Hawks will pass on Barker and pick either Olesz or Ladd.

    I think it's because Calgary has many good d-men in their system, and bolland is normally available at 19. to me, it was close between bolland and lisin.

    great overall job with your draft -- i think you nailed the caps dead on with their three picks

    i think the hawks will also pass on barker and select a forward or trade the #3 overall pick and move down in the draft and pick up an extra pick from another who is desperately after barker

    wouldnt be surprised to see either the caps or rangers move up in the draft as well

    I was wondering the same thing. Almost every single mock has Calgary taking Bolland. I'm guessing that people are figuring that we need a forward due to our defence core. While that makes sense, I'd guess that Tod Button and Co. are going to take the BPA.

    That being said, after reading up on Bolland he sounds like a "Darryl Sutter" player. A solid two-way player who's gritty, fast and has pretty darn good offensive capability. Sounds good to me. I know that it's hard to make these types of comparisions, but is there a player in the NHL who's play likens to Bolland's?

    Regardless, good effort. Looks pretty good to me.

    Good job. As a Ducks' fan, I'd be pleased if Schremp fell to the Ducks. His stock seems to be falling a little, but there's no question about his skills. The guy I want the Ducks to pass on is Wolski. If Tukonen, Ladd, Thelen or Schremp "fall" to #9, I'll be pleased.

    Nice mock. But the Isles are actually #16, and I would be stunned if the Preds passed on Picard given the chance to draft him. But I'd be more than happy with Chippy.

    Also, why has Wes O'Neill fallen so hard in all of these recent mocks?

    Because he was rated higher in the mocks in the past month than most scouting services had him. Now that CSS is out and people have realized he's not in Redline's top 20, they're warming up to the idea that he isn't one necessarily one of the top few d-men in the draft.
