    It's a very very good mock draft IMO.

    I would be thrilled if the Sharks walked away with Sindel.

    "This is my WTF part of this mock draft" - Russian Fan

    Other than that, I LOVE it. Chipchura at 18th for Montreal, I suspect McKenzie to read every team boards before making the picks...we are very high on this Chipchura boy on the Habs forum.

    I have to disagree with TSN here...Ducks have a big need for Defense and Thelen not picked in the top 8...he would for sure go to Anaheim at #9.

    nothing against Stafford but were not going to use a top 10 pick on a forward if he doesn't have first line potential.

    I think Nashville would take Chipchura over Shremp, if both were available. Chipchura is the definitive kind of player that David Poile loves and drafts.

    I agree with that quote, NJ taking him is weird and won't happen unless he falls to the third or later. Chipchura is awsome, I'm a big fan, MTL would be a good situation for him.

    Nashville needs a big scorer, Shremp has a champ to be a star scorer ...

    Enough of these Scott Hartnell and Scottie Upshall types in Nashville.

    but no center will ever be a scorer in nashville, at least not while they're playing trotz's system. not when they're not allowed to play much past the top of faceoff circles in the offensive zone. they're used a defensemen, while the offensive half of whatever defensive pairing plays deep. it's not a coincidence that david legwand is only scoring 18 goals a year when he has the tools for more.

    as for hartnell, he scored 18 goals in 59 games, this year. when he was healthy, he was arguably our most dominant scorer, and finally looking like a true power forward. scorers will have to come on the wing, and we've got timofei shishkanov probably one more season away, and konstantin glazachev not too far behind, both legitimate snipers.

    I suspect that that is very untrue.

    Teams keep their draft boads private for a reason.

    I wouldn't be *too* surprised if New Jersey drafted Devan Dubnyk...he'll be the third goalie they've taken in the first round since Martin Brodeur (Jean-Francois Damphousse and Ari Ahonen are others).

    In theory, shouldn't that decrease the odds of them drafting one yet again?

    I think Radulov is too low, thats just my opinion. I think someone in the top 10 will take a chance on him.

    Radulov seems to be the flavor of the pre-draft. He's got a very potential but i'm not so sure he's top 10 material maybe top 10 best upside though.

    Smid at #8... dunno. Not a bad call, but something tells me the Canes would go for Thelen over him.

    No goalie for the Wild...especially if Thelen is there. They wouldn't pass on a hometown bluechip player at a position that they are relatively thin at.

    Looks like they just drew names out of a hat after pick number six.

    Well Thelen is one of the favorites on HF but I do think Smid is a very top 10 potential on june 26th.

    TSN.ca has Thelen at 13th, THN have him at 15th and CSS have him at 11th for N.A. Skaters. Is it just me, or is Thelen very overrated on these boards?

    No it's not just you. At a point this season everyone was throwing him into the top 5 of their mock drafts, and so it just became habit for others to put him in their top 10s. I think he's a definite top 15, and possibly a low top 10, but it's certainly possible he's not even one of the top 3 d-men selected.

    We are if you are talking blue-chippers. There are no future #1s in the system. Schultz is the high end, and he tops out as a 3 or perhaps a 2.

    I definitely like Chipchura for the Habs. While I'd like a big, bruising defenseman who can make the first pass out of his zone too, size and strength up front is probably the biggest need.
     
  25. Burns...*sighs* AM I the only guy high on this guy on defense?
