    No Vishnevsky, Antropov, Gomez and Tanguay!

    On the other hand, they had Malhotra at 3#, Abid at 9#, Peters as a first rounder (well Parker was...), Lazarev at 20# (???)...

    Well done!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    What can you do when a lot of the first rounders weren't that good, the whole mock draft becomes funny.

    I remember being a very very very angry Sharks fan when we first missed out on David Legwand. Now I would rather have Brad Stuart over him in a hearbeat, and on top of that we had Cheechoo :)

    So close it could have been :(

    But then you think about him probably being delt in the Palffy trade anyways.

    Man there was an inordinate amount of busts in that draft, it's like the guy knew the future and was just screwing around...

    Steve Moore in the 1st round?! Andrew Peters 22nd?

    Like all of our mock drafts work out...I remember Aaron Rome being a first rounder when HF did a mock in 2002...

    Gomez was a interesting player at the time, I remember Tanguay was an obvios 1st round pick out of Halifax, but more of a late 1st round pick if I remember correctly, The avs sure knew what they were doing there!!! But it's weird he wasn't even on the top 30.

    Parker in the 1st round is a bit baffling as well.

    I won't say anything bad about Malhotra at 3 because I liked him alot :shakehead

    Fighter, I can't see how you can laugh and criticize a list like this. You didn't have Gomez, Tanguay, etc. Ranked in the top 5 of players during that draft year.

    Habs drafting Regehr... that would have been nice. Imagine the D-corps we would have had now if there would have been a season and for the future : Regehr, Komisarek, Markov, Souray, hopefully Hainsey and a bunch of other prospects to round it up : Korpikari, Korneev, Yemelin, O'Byrne, Flood, Shasby... Damn it would be great to have Regehr.

    That first round was actually one of the most bust-free in recent memory. 22 of 27 guys taken were playing regularly in the NHL last year. Compare that with 15 of 26 in 1997 and 14 of 26 in 1995.

    I love how everyone can jump all over these mock drafts and laugh at the predictions. That's exactly why there are real drafts and why the players play the game, to see what happens. It's called predicting. If it was an exact science it wouldn't be a prediction. When was the last time any of you went 30 for 30 on your own mock draft? Don't think to hard because it's never happened and never will.

    ha, Biron in the top 20 hahahahahahahahaha, not a chance at top 20000 in my books
    :joker: :lol: :joker: :banghead:

    I'd like to propose to HF that they rename the dunce smiley in honor of Biron:
    :dunce: = :Biron:

    He's so bad.

    VanRyn should have gone much higher. Malholtra at three is funny to me. That guy has always sucked, aside from that sick goal he scored last year.

    And if I had the number 2 pick in that draft, all over again, I'd still take Legwand :)

    Funny that they guaranteed that Nashville would have to stay with number 3, when exactly the opposite happened.

    Malhotra doesn't suck, at all. He was grossly misused for most of his career, but now that he's on a team that can give him the playing time, he's starting to shine. I wouldn't take him at 3, but I can see him as a late first rounder.

    Well for me the amusement is coming more from the comments than the predictions like the Andrew Peters one that I posted. Having watched Andrew for I guess four years now I'm well aware of what his skillz set is so I'm wondering either what did he do during this '98 Prospect Challenge Game that he hasn't done since or if the writer is just nuts.


    Then again Peters did go in the second round. With the LaFontaine trade pick.... :cry:
