    OK so I was bored and figured for the helluvit I'd make a top 5 mock for the '07 Draft. I had my ISS Guide laying around and I was reading it this afternoon and had to urge to make a mock, no scientific research, no real thought, just having a bit of fun that I thought I'd share:

    1. Chicago - RW Jakub Voracek
    2. Washington - C Logan Couture
    3. NY Islanders - D Mark Katic
    4. St. Louis - LW Angelo Esposito
    5. Pittsburgh - D Nick Petrecki

    Espo would be a great fit for the Pens. Imagine him playing on the same line as any of the centers they have there right now. I was going to put Espo on the Pens in my mock but figured that there is no way the Blues would pass on his upside after passing on Kessel this year.

    Agreed, but I think people probably should start getting used to that idea. Don't get me wrong, as a Pens fan, I am certainly not looking forward to ANOTHER pathetic season, but it seems as if it is in the works again. :shakehead

    I don't agree. Hockey team is made up of 20 players, not 4

    Espo would be a good fit for the leafs, but I don't think that they'll be that bad, and get the 1st pick. But I believe that Esposito will be the first overall pick in the end.

    I hope the OIlers do a little better than that (unless that's Anaheim's pick), but if they do end up in that situation, don't bet on them taking Backlund over Couture.

    Here's hoping Dallas makes a deal with St. Louis or another bottom-feeder for that much-coveted 1st overall pick.....Dallas hasn't had a pick higher than 20th for like 10 years, they're DUE!!

    Why do you have Esposito going 4? Are you picturing Phil Kessel v2.0? Where everyone over thinks it, and he drops to 4 or 5 like Kessel.

    IMO, Kessel and Esposito are going to be the best of their respective draft classes.
