    Round 1

    1. Washington Capitals : Alexander Ovechkin
    The clear cut #1 prospects, one of the best prospects in 10years with Kovalchuk and Lecavalier. Only with him, Washington can have faith to have a brighter future.

    2.Pittsburgh Penguins : Evgeny Malkin
    Some say ''too bad for Pitsburgh cause they deserved the pick more than Washington, but I think Malkin is a very good prospects and a good base to built on it. Penguins have Fluery in goal, Orpik Welch Whitney on D and now Malone Malkin Kotlsov Kraft on Offense they will be feared someday hopefully it'll be in Pittsburgh.

    3. Chicago Blackhawks : Rotislav Olesz
    I always see Olesz drop on other mock draft, sometimes to #6 others to #7, I still think he's the #3 guy and Chicago ( or another team ) will draft him at #3 spot in two weeks. He's a complete player and i don't think his concussion will affect his game.

    4. Columbus Blue Jackets : Cam Barker
    They need some young defense and Barker is the best available, he can do it all great first pass, good size and can but don't always do it throw big HIT.

    5. Phoenix Coyotes : Andrew Ladd
    They pass on Tukonen but they have the chance of taking the power foward of the draft who is very similar to Shane Doan and they won't pass on him, they have young defense and a good prospect goalie in LeNeveu, so I think they will go with a fowards.

    6. New York Rangers : Lauri Tukonen
    I feel bad to see Tukonen out of the TOP5 cause i really love him, he have the never say never attiude, size and good playmaking skills that make him unless somethings bad happen a sure fire NHLer.Like Michalek last year his offensive skills are underrated and he will show you how to play hockey and he will make the Rangers a good organization again.

    7. Florida Panthers : Marek Schwarz
    They have the best young goalie in the NHL in Luongo, true but in 3-4-5 years when he will left the panters by UFA or ask for a trade or ask for too much money who will they have in net, who will replace him ? Andy Moog ? if they don't draft or find a young goalie they will be in trouble, Schwarz is the perfect fit and they can wait 3-4-5 years with Marek and wait him to be ready to make the Big Jump.

    8. Carolina Hurricanes :A.J. Thelen
    The 2nd best Defense in the draft, and I don't think Thelen is far behind Barker. He's Big, Mobile can play well in all the 3 zones, the complete package. Carolina don't have a lot of prospects and needs almost anything ( except Goalie ) so the BPA is the way to draft.

    9. Anaheim Mighty Ducks :Alexander Radulov
    Anaheim seems to like drafting Russian in the first round, Smirnov Chistov Vishnevsky , and they won,t do it differently this year by making one of the most skilled player in the draft their 1rst round pick. Radulov always want to be the best player on the ice, some say he have attitude problem, i don't buy that.

    10.Atlanta Trashers : Robbie Schremp
    They need some skilled upfront but with Heatley and Kovalchuk already stars in the NHL, they can draft a High Risk/High Reward player like Schremp. If he reach his potential he can be a star in the NHL he have great hands and can do some wizard move with his stick when he have the puck but when he doesn't he's not very effective. He need to work very hard on his defense.

    11.Los-Angeles Kings : Alvaro Montoya
    I think it's a bit high to draft Montoya and that's why I can see L-A trading down ( 12-16 not 17th cause St-Louis is the only one team i can see being interested in a goalie) , but if they stay at 11 i think Montoya is their best choice casue they have dept everywhere execpt in goal the only have Ryan Munce who is a good but not great prospects.

    12.Minnesota Wild : Alexandre Picard
    I'm high on Picard, he's a good siper and doesn't shy away from physical play, he is a constant offensive threat, comes playoff time he elevate his play. Captain Material IMO. I know some say Minnesota needs to go defense, but since 2000 they draft offense and they will not change it this year.

    13.Buffalo Sabres : Boris Valabik
    I think it's high for Valabik, but I don't know why but I have the Feeling that Buffalo will draft him maybe they will trade down but trust me Valabik is going to Buffalo.

    14.Edmonton Oilers : Drew Stafford
    I don't think he have 1rst line potential and that's why i can see him going that Low, but he's a really good player who have PowerFoward abilities and he already said that he would like playing in Edmonton.( http://www.hobbyinsider.net/articles/article_70_stafford_interview.asp )

    15.Nasville Predators : Wojtek Wolski
    He have the reputation of being a Floater but even with that he have some amazing offensive abilitie and that what nasville lack.

    16.New-York Islanders : Lauri Korpikoski
    Big suprise of the draft, there is always a suprise, Bret Burns, J.Niinimaki... this year it's Lauri. Such a great hard working player with skills and never say never attitude.

    17.St-Louis Blues : Lukas Kaspar
    They need some Gritty players up front and that what Kaspar brings. Physical play PowerFowards skills i think he was better than Olesz in WJC.

    18.Montreal Canadiens : Kyle Chipchura
    Best Player available and exactly what Montreal Need Size grit and physical play at Center. May not have 1rst Line Potential but I think his offensive skills are underrated and he should be a good 2nd line center.

    19.Calgary Flames : Andrej Meszaros
    They wanted Kaspar but he's gone so they take the BPA in Andrej. I think even with Phaneuf they still need help at defense.

    20.Dallas Stars : Mike Green
    With the lost of vagner they need some D prospects and IMO Green is a good and safe pick.
    21.Colorado Avalanche : David Bolland
    22.New Jersey Devils : Ladislav Smid
    23.Ottawa Senators : Wes O'neil
    24.New-York Rangers : Jakub Sindel
    25.Edmonton Oilers : Cory Schneider
    26.Vancouver Canucks : Viktor Alexandrov
    27.Washington Capitals : Kyrill Lyamin
    28.San-Jose Sharks : Bruce Graham
    29.Washington Capitals : Martin Karsums
    30.Tampa-Bay Lightnings : Devan Dubnyk

  2. Thank you for Wheeler, but if Stafford does fall out of the top 10, the Wild might opt for him because they did lose their PF in Burns and Wanvig isn't top 6 quality, so it's a toss up between Stafford and Picard, just depends on who the Wild like...

    And we went defense last year.

    Good mock though, I might question the Panthers taking Schwarz...

    you went defense last year true but not in the 1rst round when you drafted Burns he was a Fowards
     
  4. Yes he was but we converted him to defense and it has paid off...

    I wonder where Burns would've went if he went into the draft as a defenseman?

    But yeah Picard, Stafford, or Korpikoski!

    I like this mock, even though I don't like the pick of Korpikoski for the Isles.

    As for Luongo, I think that Florida will try to resign Luongo. Whether they have the bucks to do so without sinking the franchise remains to be seen.

    Anaheim has had a GM change (actually two if you count the latest shuffling) since they constantly looked to Europe for players. And the fact that Smirnov, Chistov and Vishnevski have all not played as well as hoped for Anaheim, may turn the Ducks away from a Russian first rounder.
    I would see them taking a look at Stafford and Picard.
    I like Lepisto as their 2nd round choice.

    At the risk of criticism, there's no way the Rangers take all Europeans with their first five picks. Figure Sather and crew will have a couple of WHL kids and a college player or two sprinkled in.

    No Brent?

    I like Schwarz to Florida, it's a gutsy pick on your part: no one needs goaltending in the top 10 but Schwarz is too good to drop out so if someone takes him, why not Florida? Not saying that's how I see it happening but still there's logic in that.

    O'Neill to Ottawa seems to be a popular vote right now, it makes perfect sense for the organisation and should happen unless Graham is high on our scouts' list or Meszaros or Smid fall.

    Great mock from the prospective of my teams!

    Schremp and McGrath for the Thrashers.

    I absolutely love that O'Neill goes to the Senators.
