    1. Edmonton Oilers - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins
    Edmonton gets their dynamic playmaking centre to play with Hall and Eberle

    2. Colorado Avalanche - Adam Larsson
    Colorado solidifies it's defence with Larsson, allowing them to trade JM Liles for forward assets.

    3. Florida Panthers - Sean Couturier
    Tallon loves dem Big Boyz, Panthers happy with a solid, low-risk pick.

    4. New Jersey Devils - Ryan Murphy
    Devils get that PMD that even their former coach, Jacques Lemaire, said they desperately needed. Amazing vision for such a young talent.

    5. New York Islanders - Dougie Hamilton
    Islanders get that all-around defenceman that can have his offensive side tutored by Mark Streit.

    6. Ottawa Senators - Gabriel Landeskog
    May come as a surprise to some, but Ottawa manages to grab Landeskog, add another Swede that will be a solid pick for years to come.

    7. Atlanta Thrashers - Jonathon Huberdeau
    Atlanta picks up another big forward to play along the massive PWF in Kane, and the shifty Burmistrov.

    8. Columbus Blue Jackets - Ryan Strome
    Columbus adds another centre that they see as the #1 need in their organization. With this and Johansen's development, players like Huselius and Brassard may become expendable for a PMD.

    9. Boston Bruins (from Toronto) - Duncan Siemens
    Bruins pick the gritty defencemen who will help fill in with their lackluster defensive prospects.

    10. Minnesota Wild - Mika Zibanejad
    Wild pick a young talented centre to their aging forward corp.

    11. Colorado Avalanche (from St. Louis) - Mark McNeill
    Having picked the best defenseman in the draft, Colorado chooses a big gifted centre who possibly makes Stastny expendable for further assets.

    12. Carolina Hurricane - Jamie Oleksiak
    Carolina chooses a big skilled defenceman to a D-corp that may see Pitkanen go this offseason.

    13. Calgary Flames - Brandon Saad
    Calgary chooses a PWF prospect that can be mentored by one of the greats, Jarome Iginla.

    14. Dallas Stars - Nathan Beaulieu
    Stars take the small, offensive, defenceman prospect to bolster up their lack of defence.

    15. New York Rangers - Joel Armia
    Rangers take a skilled offensive prospect who may turn out to be their future replacement of Gaborik.

    16. Buffalo Sabres - Mark Scheifele
    Sabres take the big, yet lanky, centre in hopes of strengthening themselves down the middle.

    17. Montreal Canadiens - Tyler Biggs
    Biggs, yes he is. Montreal adds a PWF prospect that adds SIZE to their team.

    18. Chicago Blackhawks - Sven Bartschi
    Bit of a drop, Blackhawks take an undersized winger who has the ability to play a support role with great offensive players.

    19. Edmonton Oilers (from LA) - David Musil
    After taking RNH first overall, Oilers look to add to their D by selecting the gifted David Musil.

    20. Phoenix Coyotes - Vladislav Namestinov
    After having lack of high-end talent on their team, Phoenix takes the risky pick hoping this Russian pans out.

    21. Ottawa Senators (from Nashville) - Zach Phillips
    Sens take a strong centre who they hope was the real reason behind the Sea Dogs success.

    22. Anaheim Ducks - Matt Puempel
    Ducks take the offensively talent sniper in Puempel who's stock fall due to an injury, may become the steal of this draft.

    23. Tampa Bay - Jonas Brodin
    Bolts take a talent dman to a lackluster corp of aging dman and poor system.

    24. Toronto (from Boston) - Dmitri Jaskin
    Leafs take the talented Czech-Russian who's stock fell somewhat to a knee injury.

    25. Detroit - Victor Rask
    Wings take a risk here hoping they can develop some top-end talent.

    26. San Jose - Scott Mayfield
    Another huge dman to their system, their D is looking scary in 3 years.

    27. Pittsburgh Penguins - Boone Jenner
    Taking the safe pick with a lot of heart. Pens hope he can become an offensive force playing with their elite centres.

    28. Toronto (from Philadelphia)- Nicklas Jensen
    Toronto takes the PWF prospect who they hope develops into a Kulemin-lite player.

    29. Washington Capitals - Alexander Kohklachev
    Russian. Need I say more?

    30. Vancouver Canucks - Joseph Morrow
    With lackluster defensive prospects, Canucks add a skilled dman to replace a Bieksa/Ehrhoff/Salo/Hamhuis/Ballard down the road.




    Opinions are welcome.

    Except the fact you have the too perfect situation of Ottawa getting Landeskog without trading up.

    Do not want Beaulieu for Dallas either. No QMJHL defensemen for Dallas. Not anymore.

    Mark McNiel at 31st overall? Yes friggen please...EDIT: nvm, I'm blind.

    That being said, I wouldn't be overly happy with David Musil at 19th. I'd rather grab Joe Morrow.

    RNH + Musil is probably the best realistic scenario for the Oilers. Or Larsson + Schefiele.

    I can. Murphy would be the perfect fit in NJD.

    He'll pick the BPA. It doesn't matter if they're European or not. Burke likes size and by adding these 2 prospects he gets just that.

    He would rather pick a 6 foot PWF with high upside than the other americans who are left. Especially when some are lacking size. (Grimaldi)

    How is Huberdeau at 6'1 and 171 pds considered "big" when Beaulieu at 6'3 and 191 pds is considered "small"?

    I can't say I'm a fan of taking Musil with Brodin and Jaskin still available.

    But I doubt he is the BPA at 4, which NJ will select regardless how well he fits.

    Call me crazy but I don't think Calgary passes on either McNeil or Scheifele if one of the two is available at their pick. We've been looking for a big center for forever.

    If Boone Jenner is on the board, they will pick him over the Czech guy.

    I'd be pretty disappointed if the Bruins got Siemens with both Ziba and Armia still on the board.

    I could see the top 8 going something like this. Everyone always panic's and says who the bpa's are, but it never goes according to plan. This is a little different and meets the needs of the teams.

    He has McNeil going to Colorado at 11.

    Oil will probably go for Larsson, then take Schiefele who compares to Spezza, or take a center next year, Gagner I think is just fine.

    Avs take Landeskog, they need Wingers ASAP and take a D with the other pick (whoevers left)

    Florida takes RNH/Couturier

    Yeah honestly....even if Ottawa thinks there's a chance Landeskog could slide to 6, there's still a much bigger chance they move up to 3 or 4 and pay the price.

    Considering I don't think he's clearly the BPA at all until he gets to around 6...I don't see why NJ adds another natural LW. In reply to Classic Devil...Ryan Murphy is a rare prospect, could arguably be the BPA, and fills a significant need in one pick for NJ.

    Murphy could be the next Niedermayer if he goes to the Devils. This scares me.

    Change Couturier for Landeskog to Florida and it sounds like a pretty good mock draft to me.

    I don't think Landeskog drops to Ottawa... I'd say he goes to Florida.. I bet they're looking for a franchise captain-type player.

    I'd also guess that Ty Rattie doesn't leave the first round.

    But other than that... this is definitely one of the best mock drafts I've seen on these boards. Good job.

    If the Devils are going to take Murphy, I think they'll move down first, unless Lou suspects the Isles want him, which I'm not so certain of.
