    That was easily my favourite draft - I almost can't wait for 2008 so I can do my 5-year review!

    Nice mock, Dion - I'm reminded (by extensive discussion on the prospects board) that there's no such thing as a bad mock - there's every chance that these picks will turn out to be better than the picks the teams actually make.

    The only thing I know for sure is that actual HFNHL draft results will look very different from this list - not due to a problem with this list, just the reality of having 30 perspectives around the table.

    Nice work, Dion!

    Jonas Ahnelov in the first round? Thats a hugh surprise. I doubt that someone will pick in the 1st. I am not even sure I would pick him with my first pick in round 3. I wonder who I will pick since MODO doesnt have any big time prospects this year.

    Heh - I've got to win one before I can give you the next one... and I think I just missed my chance, barring a miracle next year.

    But Colliton, a first and a second would be doable... :dunno:

    Interesting tidbit there. Does it help that Vishnevsky plays in the QMJHL? At what point does a player cease to be European and become North American?

    i'll do another one tomorrow, with some comments. I actually just broke my hand (for the second time this year) and I've got a few days off work, so I'll be bored and spend some time on it.

    Should we ask how you broke it? (First rule of fight club: we don't talk about fight club...)

    Seriously, that sucks Brock - sorry to hear it. Hopefully the recovery goes better this time around, so you don't need to worry about this becoming a habit.

    First time (In January), it was from punching a brick wall. Obviously not the most intelligent thing to do...lol...Ended up getting a "boxers fracture" of the 4th and 5th metacarpals. The 5th metacarpal didn't quite heal properly as I ended up with a floating knuckle.

    This time, at my summer job in the Canadian Tire warehouse, I was getting a gate for a customer when these cast iron bistro sets fell on me and my first reflex was to prevent them from falling on me, so I ended up essentially "punching" or hitting the box to keep it from hitting me. Kind of like a reactionary anger...lol... Either way this time I did some serious damage and the orthopedic surgeon I saw today said that it happened because it didn't heal properly the first time. This time, unfortunately, I nearly snapped the 5th metacarpal in half and today they had to "pop it" back in. Basically they gave me freezing, some big guy held my arm and pulled one way, while the surgeon grabbed my finger and pulled and twisted the other way it until it popped back in. Not the most pleasant thing in the world. Now i'm casted for 6 weeks and baseball season is done...lol

    I was actually going to be able to originally only make about the first round of the draft on Saturday because I had a tournament this weekend and a game at 12, which I would have had to leave around 1115 for. But now, that's obviously not an issue so I'll be there for the whole thing.
