    Good draft.

    The only thing I would disagree with is Gagner will go lower in my opinion, and Patrick Kane will go higher, prob number 1.

    Aliu and Kane will likely be line-mates next season in London. I don't want Aliu either, but it would be an interesting situation to watch.

    Maclean will be about 32 or 33 and I think his hit on Bryan Cameron will cost him a few spots.
