    My knowledge of prospects is limited, but Schremp at 15 and Radulov at 17 seems a little low, no?

    (I'd be pretty happy with Chipchura to the Habs)

    suprising to see wolski back in the top 10 (going 7th to florida)

    seems like most of their predictions had a side note regarding what it might be like for a player to play with someone in the drafting teams system

    nokelainen with jokinen/miettinen/lehtonen in dallas
    ladd with nash/zherdev in columbus
    meszaros with coburn in atlanta
    montoya with tambellini in LA

    not much insight on the actual player or reason they like him in that spot :dunno:
     
  4. [RANT] WHY DOES EVERYONE THINK WE NEED A NUMBER 1 GOALTENDER? HAVEN'T THEY HEARD OF HARDING [/RANT]

    I don't mind Schwarz but COME ON! The Wild have a pretty good defense and two great goaltenders, the last thing we need is another one when we have two coming in to our farm teams and we can't get rid of one!

    We need scorers damn it!

    I would be OK with the Blues picking a winger such as Radulov because we need scorers, but I think Goalie is a greater need and if one such as Dubnyk is available he would be my pick.

    That's not a bad mock considering it's TSN. I remember in last year's mock they had Nathan Paetch in the first round. :joker:
     
  7. They have the Avalanche taking Lauri Korpikoski.

    I'd be happy with that.

    Not bad. Jeff Shultz over Mike Green is really balls-to-the-wall kind of picking though.

    Rangers getting Olesz and Green would make my day.

    The only reason the Devils would take a goaltender is if Ahonen will definitely be traded. Doesn't make sense... especially with Green still available.

    You'd be wise to take the BPA, not what you need the most, because who knows how your needs may change by the time the guy is ready. Also, Harding could be a bust. And goaltending is the most important position. I wouldn't pass over Schwarz at your draft position just because there is a lower ranked player who you could use more. Trade down if that is the case.

    I would prefer the Habs picking Korpikoski or Green before Chipchura,I just love Korpikoski :bow: :bow:
     
  13. Exactly Danrik, I rather trade down and grab Thelen or Radulov over Schwarz because we could end up taking another goalie who could be good.

    If Chipchura goes to #18, and the Habs don't take him, I will lose all of the faith I have for the Habs. I like them, but I don't follow them all that closely, but they do need size and grit and centre.

    If Schremp falls to #15 Nashville will be the happiest team on earth considering he should go top 10.

    No guarantee that the people in charge will feel the same way. And if they have a goalie rated the the highest on their list when their pick comes around they should either take him or trade down.

    I've really changed my opinion on Stafford over the last few weeks, and I wouldn't mind taking him, over A.J. Thelen, that is.

    If Thelen's available, I Hope BM.....I mean Fletcher takes him. Then, if A.J.'s gone, Stafford would be a great choice.

    The logic just doesn't follow. I wouldn't mind taking a goaltender, but I doubt we do it in the first round.

    BPA is why I wouldn't absolutely rule out the Devils taking a goalie, although I agree it's rather unlikely.

    Oilers - knabbing Picard and Bollard should make most Oilers fans pretty satisfied.

    The thing i find odd is that, At the 25th pick/Bolland it says that the oilers could use a playmaking centre, but if they really could use a playmaking centre then wouldnt they take Schremp at 15?

    Do people really think the goaltenders discussed going in the first round are actually BPA picks? Seems like every mock I've read has them selected high because they fill a need for the team picking them, not because they are the BPA.

    (In the interest of disclosure, I'm in disagreement with choice of the Wild selecting a goalie, or needing to fill a hole with one.)

    When did Kasper start playing for Moose Jaw? LUKAS KASPAR, RW, Moose Jaw (WHL) Guess that was a typo. ;)

    If anyone needed to see any evidence that this draft is one huge cluster-you-know-what all you have to do is look at how different this mock is than any other one you've seen.

    Smid #8 before Thelen?
    Meszaroz #9, also before Thelen?
    Schremp #15?
    Green #24?
    Wolski #7?

    One thing is for sure... from here on out, there is no such thing as a bad mock draft... assuming, of course, they have AO and Malkin going 1 and 2.
