    My draft of non-playoff teams as of now.

    Pens-Johnson: weakness is d, he is BPA, and stud d-men are hard to come by

    Blues-Kessel: Potential superstar, also american and is electrifying

    Hawks-Staal: Get potential franchise centremen who can play both ends of the ice

    Caps-Toews: wanted Centre (Staal) but gap between Toews and Mueller to big to pass and take Mueller

    Jackets-Mueller: big skilled playmaking centre more suited for second line behind Brule

    Bruins-Backstrom: to skilled to pass up at the 6 spot

    Islanders-Frolik: Wanted Backstrom then wanted potential impact player which Frolik is

    Coyotes-Brassard: BPA, top line potential

    Panthers-Williams: have a feeling cats will grap a d-man and will love Williams potential

    Wild-Sanguinetti: grab top offensive d-man in the draft and fill prospect weakness on defense

    Kings-Okposo: love his power forward potential

    Leafs-Sheppard: BPA, brings size and strength to current prospects, 2-way player

    Thrashers-Little: BPA, centre with top end potential lacking in thrasher organization

    Canucks-Emmerton: Creative centre with offensive game not present in nucks system

    Honourable mention: Tlusty, and Wishart

    also where will the first goalie go? i have no idea

    I could see Florida select Chris Stewart, Anthony's brother.
    Little is from Toronto area and could be a Leafs target
    Okposo could also be interesting for the Wild as he's from Minnesota.

    Anyway, good effort... mock draft are always funny and interesting. :)

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Caps take Backstrom at 4, but I would be happy with Toews

    That was actually the pick i had the most trouble with, i was also thinking Tlusty or Forney.

    Edit: Also to me #14 or 15 depending on Tlusty (i dont know enough about him) is where the big drop off in this draft is.

    theres also a good Chance the Canucks end up with a higher pick than just 14th...

    14. VCR = 90 points (1 Game In Hand)
    13. ATL = 89 points (2 Games In Hand)
    12. TOR = 86 points (3 Games In Hand)

    If the Canucks picked Emmerton over Tlusty I would snap.

    I really like Okposo....but I think the Kings are really focused on drafting a defenseman in the 1st round this year. I see them trying for one of these 3..... Sanguinetti, Williams or Wishart.

    i have a feeling Mueller will drop out of the top 10 as teams will go for high risk, high reward types over him.

    i lost myself
    A bit like Marc Savard or Mike Comrie, and he'll be around 65-75 PTS a year with some good years around 80-90, I think. I really like Little, I think he's good enough for top 5 or atleast around 7-8, because he got 100 PTS this year, and has steady first two seasons, and cause he can setup big plays, and score huge goals too.

    So to sum it up: He's like Savard with more scoring touch, and will be around 70 PTS a year.
