    Crashing The Net has made their own mock draft for this year :help: :

    1 Chi - K. Turris
    2 Phi - JVR
    3 Pho - K. Ellerby
    4 LA - A. Cherepanov
    5 Was - K. Alzner
    6 Edm - P. Kane
    7 Clb - J. Voracek
    8 Bos - B. MacLean
    9 StL - D. Perron
    10 Flo - A. Esposito

    This is really strange, I don´t see Kane dropping to 6 and Voracek to 7 and Brett MacLean already at 8 :amazed:

    :huh:

    I welcome different takes on the draft but some of his reasoning is a little spotty.

    An interesting take, although I chuckle when he labels the "little known" Kyle Turris as a "proven goal scorer." Don't get me wrong, Turris is a fine prospect, but if there is a knock against him it's because of his current level of competition.

    Please no Alzner for the Capitals :(. I would hope they would go with Ellerby if they had to go D. And passing on Kane/Voracek in this mock is crazy.

    I highly highly doubt the caps pass on Voracek if he's still available

    im not saying that this mock will be accurate in terms of players, but in terms of surprises i think this is pretty accurate. this is one draft where most hf'ers consensus on the top 10 will be really off. aside from two or three guys, i bet everyones top ten is drastically different. some teams will have espo at 3, some at 15. ditto alzner and ellerby. where does gagner fit? he is amazing but tiny - where does someone take that chance? i think aside from kane, turris, jvr - imo the top 3 everyone gets all mixed up. this will be like the 2004 draft - where after barker no one knows anything.

    I've watched Kane play every game this year. That ranking seems about right for him. He's not a top five pick if this draft year is similar to most others, in my opinion. I will guarantee there is more than one team out there which has him ranked outside of the Top 15.

    I think he goes higher than 6th, because alot of people seem to be captivated by his natural scoring ability, but this kid is a far better Junior player than he'll ever be in the NHL. Write it down.

    Do you really think that Gagner will drop out of the top 10?

    Those fools at nhl.com really drove the small bus through this one...didn't they??? Cherepanov at #4??? I don't think he's worth the pick... He can slide down to Columbus...and STILL I'd think he's overrated... Besides...Columbus has a better history with dealing with prima donnas on their roster...

    Crashing The Net has made their own mock draft for this year :

    1 Chi - K. Turris
    2 Phi - JVR
    3 Pho - K. Ellerby
    4 LA - A. Cherepanov
    5 Was - K. Alzner
    6 Edm - P. Kane
    7 Clb - J. Voracek
    8 Bos - B. MacLean
    9 StL - D. Perron
    10 Flo - A. Esposito

    And just how did CTN come up with this stuff.

    Turris has played against nobody except lower tier hockey so move him down.

    Where did you watch Patrick play from the roof.

    If he isn't a top five then someone is selling swampland in Gator land.

    That kid will be dynamite in three years minimum.

    Alzner has to go top 3 many of the lower teams are crying for young defence they can build around. Not second round picks like many have in their stables already.

    Gagner too will go high he will be the full package in two years.

    Any chance JVR goes first overall?

    I'm in the ABC crowd...ANYONE But Cherepanov... Only 10% has to deal with the transfer deal...the rest is reports that I keep hearing about his attitude and that he can't even pass the salt if he's sitting next to you...

    is JVR a LW(honest ?)chi seems pretty stacked for the future on the right side. A power forward would be a nice addition to their prospect pool. he also has alot of hype after the wj's.

    No way Montreal picks Veuilleux for their first round pick. Maybe later on, but no need to get him that early as he is not a top prospect for this draft.

    Why not? I think it'll probably be Kane, but Chicago might have a thing for JVR that we don't know about...
