didn't they have a top 14 mock draft come out a coupel days ago? This one seems to make moe sense which means the other one is moe likely to be true.
First Mock I've seen with Irving rated over Bernier and Helenius.
PHL's drafting D-men this year, sorry TSN.
Actually Anisimov is an excellent center, who performed extremely well at the Combine. He is rated at no. 6 among Europeans by CSS, which I think is a bit high, but it is not an outrageous pick.
"With that in mind, the following is TSN.ca's mock first round for non-playoff teams at the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. As with every other year, it's pretty much a crap shoot."
"Any three or four players have a shot at being taken by a given team, and this mock draft is, at best, a guess at the general area where a player may go. Hey, your guess is as good as ours."
Suprising... but IMO TSN is on the money.
Irving is a "Cam Ward", calm, cool, and collected type goalie. With Ward's emergance, I wouldn't be suprised if that "type" of goalie becomes more popular with GM's and scouts.
Don't be suprised if a team that needs a goalie nabs him in the 1st round ( could be as high as LA at 11)
No Nigel Williams in the 1st round?
How is his rebound control? Ward impressed me tons BUT the one weakness I noticed is he average for rebounds. He lets them out but saves his *** by being an amazing athletic goalie that can move fast.
Well those 3 or 4 players could have been d-men.
Trevor Lewis? Are the Devils the only organization that scouts the USHL?
"The Canucks have had plenty of success with Russian picks."
Yes, so much so that there were... wait let me count... ZERO on this season's roster!
and they missed the playoffs. with Bure they made the playoffs many times.
It says "European picks". Which is only semi-true, really.
It said Russian before. Hilariously they changed it.
Is Russia even considered Europe?
Also the Vishnevski pick looks totally redundant with the emergence of Patrick McNeill.
Half of it is....at least the half with civilization.
They probably saw your post
I'd say Bernier will get passed them eventually but with a first round pick when Emmerton and Williams AND Berglund are still around this pick doesn't merit the thumbs up from me
#18 The avs need offence??
Are they serious??
We need DEFENCE!!!!!!!!
He deserves to be a first rounder imo. At #14? I don't know, but I would thay no.
If Tampa drafts a goalie, I lose my mind.
I'm not sure the Rangers pass on Stewart if he's there at 21.
