    Yes, there will be surprises.
    No, we don't know what they will be, as they wouldn't be surprises if we already knew.

    It's not a surprise if you know what it is.

    I saw Ryan Murphy will fall to 10-15 range and Zibanejad will get picked no later than 6.

    I think Puempel will go somewhere between 10 and 15.

    Someone who surprisingly slips? I'll unfortunately have to say Couturier.

    Don't know if it's that much of a surprise, but expect Zibanejad to Ottawa at 6th.

    Don't know if all these count as surprises but...

    - Connor Murphy gets taken in the 15-25 range after being injured most of the year.
    - Puempel doesn't fall any later then 20th.
    - Zibanejad cracks the top 5.
    - Some amazing, highly touted played falls to the Hawks. :)
    - Couturier falls to the Bruins 9th overall.
    - Jonas Brodin falls to the 2nd round.

    I can see Zibanejad going 4th to the Devils if they like him enough, since it appears Ottawa is looking to take him 6th. Murphy might slip a bit.

    If Boston ends up with Seguin and Couturier for one nut, I'm hiring Fat Tony to deal with Burke.

    Oh my. Hoping that Nicklas Jensen goes in round 1.
    I think if he goes in the first round, it will be as number 19 Oilers or 24 red wings.

    If he is not picked by one of these two, I think he will fall to late 2nd.

    I know a lot of Canucks fans want him, and I've seen him as Ottawa's pick in a lot of mock drafts. I also think the Oilers take a dman with 19 (someone like Klefbom).

    Are the Islanders picking at all?

    If so, then there will be a surprise.
