    I was quite happy to see Green fall all the way to New Jersey. It was very, very tempting to take Korpikoski, but I felt that Green was too good a defenceman to pass up.

    That's what I thought too.... whenever I see a mock I think "Please Green, Please Green" and I'm surprised that the HF mock actually has us taking him. Happy too. Chances of it actually happening are still slim, but I'd be thrilled if we grabbed him.

    I thought that was Olesz who got his concussion at the WJC, not Malkin.

    The Habs take Fransson at 17? I understand that he's a guy they have been interested in for some time....so is this pick a best guess at who the Habs will pick, or who the Habs should pick?

    Personally i like what i've read on Green, and if he was available at 17 i would hope that the Habs would take him over Fransson...but then again what do i know as i've never even seen Fransson play...

    Interesting read none the less.

    As always- a fun exercise.

    I took Scott Hartnell and Ron Hainsey for Boston in HF's 2000 Mock, and then took Alexander Perezhogin for the B's in 2001.

    Glad the staff is keeping up with the tradition. Back in the day, it was held on the HF Chat board- a lot of fun.

    PS- Cory Schneider WILL be a 1st-round pick on Saturday. You can take that to the bank. I know of at least three teams that covet him. He won't get by all three.

    Beyond that- great job.

    I too was very surprised to see him go in the first half of the first round. I was picturing him as a consensus second round pick. Graham sure has many interesting attributes to his game, one of them being his size (he's 6"6, 220 pounds). A centerman with good offensive upside. While not being a two-way forward, he's not a liability in the defensive zone. Can play both finesse and physical type of game...

    Nice mock.

    Good work.
     
  11. I don't think the Blues would pick Radulov at 17 if Green is still available. Or even Montoya for that matter.

    I think this mock and the countless others that are out there show just how wide open this draft is. Passed the first 4-5-6 picks, there is absolutely no consensus (aside from LA picking a goalie). There are some mocks that have 1 guy going top 15, others that are late 1st round or into the 2nd. I think you'll see alot of dealing on draft day because of it. Teams will see a guy they like and will take the chance of getting him. They won't wait and hope. Should be very interesting to see.

    Can he skate? If so, he quite possibly could be picked by the Preds who are in dire need of a centerman prospect with top 6 potential.

    That was me picking him. There's no way the Habs take him at 18th, imo with his injury problems, but since Savard liked him and being the SEL rookie of the year, I wouldn't be pissed if we got him.

    I think the Habs will end up with Korpikoski. I'm not a big fan of Green, that's why I passed on him.

    The caps will not be taking two defenseman in the first round. In the first round they will be looking for offensive talent and in the second round then they go defense. They want a play making center and that is what they will be looking for after taking Ovechkin with the first pick.Also any foward that has goal scoring talent will also be on their radar screen But other that that not a bad mock draft.

    I think they'd be wise to go with blueliners with their late 1st rounders. Outside of Eminger and Morrisson, they don't have anyone worth mentioning in their prospect pool. Their offense, after Ovechkin, is stacked with both top-end talent and role players.

    I would not be upset to see the Kings take him at 11; even if it is "technically" too soon.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Blues were one of those teams.

    Montoya has zero chance of falling that far in real life. I'd bet money on it.

    Flames have zero chance of selecting Lisin IMO. Whoever made that pick didn't really take into account the type of players that our scouting staff and GM prefer. No way we take a soft, lazy, euro IMO.
