    Hey Guys,

    As you have read in the other thread every Monday on HF Podcast will now be mock draft Monday , a chance for one of you mock drafters to defend your draft as I try to pick it apart, well not try to, you'll be able to express your's who's to where and why. And that I will ask WHAT were you thinking...something along those lines.

    Anyway we have our first Mock Draft. It will be the one posted by Xtra, I've re-posted it in this thread.

    I look forward to you talking with the man about his Mock Draft.

    And just to make things fun.

    I want you guys to email in some questions that I will fire his way while we are doing the interview.

    Send your questions for Xtra to [email protected]

    Backstrom at #8? Do you think he is going to fall because of concerns over his contract in Sweden and fears he could be difficult to sign??

    I just can't imagine 7 teams passing up on easily the most NHL ready player in the draft, and a guy who's downside is as an outstanding 3rd liner, with great second line potential

    There is not a chance Backstrom slips out of the top 6, in my opinion. I could eat crow on this (re: Anze Kopitar), but I think Washington is dying to get him at 4.

    The Thrashers have solid depth at D in their farm system. Do you think Williams is the best player available at that spot, enough so that the Thrashers will not address their farm systems weakness at C with Little or Sheppard?

    Williams is big and can skate. More often than not teams take chances on players like this espically one who has grown so much in the last year in terms of ability
