    If the Avs get Sven Bartschi & Lucas Lessio I would be very happy.

    Sucks that NJ could get 1st overall pick and then had traded their 2nd for Arnott and league too away their 3rd!

    Hoping we can trade Arnott by the deadline to pick up a 2nd rounder or possibly try to parlay Langenbrunner and a prospect for Boston's 2nd 1st rounder.

    Decent list but think Boston would take Landeskog over Siemans but Seimens could be the heir to Chara.

    Chara just signed a 7-year extension. There is zero chance the Bruins take Siemens there. If Landeskog or Murphy are on the board (which they are in this mock draft), I can bet that they select one of them.

    EDIT: Based on who is on the board for the Bruins' picks in the first two rounds, I'd go:
    4- Landeskog/Murphy
    18- Nieto/McColgan/Clendening/Prince/Ambroz
    40- Scott Mayfield
    48- Nicklas Jensen

    As a Flames fan I have very little interest in Murphy. This team needs forwards that can score, and as much as Ryan Murphy can be an offensive catalyst from the back end, he's still an undersized defenseman.

    Any opinions on Luke Juha??? I feel if he was playing in the OHL he would be getting far more love then what he's getting right now.

    I hope the pens draft Jaskin, but I dont see it happening. McColgan isn't bad wouldn't mind us taking him.

    Do you see both Keeney and Galansky as better goalies than guys like Honzik, Teichmann, Binnington, Broissoit?

    Also, do you know anything about Jackson Teichroeb?

    Good overall analysis!

    I think the Leafs take Michael St. Croix if he falls to them.

    Couldn't see the Bruins skipping on Murphy or Landeskog.

    Especially Murphy, because they typically have a history of having superstar undersized offensive defensemen :sarcasm:

    Anyways always nice to see people post mock drafts this early.

    I doubt he falls that far. Ive seen this kid play and he has all the tools to be a first rounder even top 15

    I see Florida picking him up that high, hes better than most players in that draft, if he fell far, he'd be the biggest steal in that draft, hes the next Doug Gilmour, if he did fall, he'd go to Vancouver but I see Toronto trading up for him
     
  15. I would be very surprised if Lou and Conte passed on Larsson at #1. This team needs a franchise blueliner ever since Niedermayer left the franchise and he can be just that.

    With IK and Parise up front (this funk won't last long), I would target a franchise d-men over a franchise forward.

    LOVE Siemens at fourth. He's a stud. Some think he's underrated, and some might say 4th makes him overrated. Either way, he's such a solid player and the NHL team that gets him hopefully won't be disappointed.

    A little bit surprised you don't have Christopher Gibson from Chicoutimi in your top 90, but other than that it looks like a solid list. Seems like you're big on Xavier Ouellet and it could be possible he goes that high, but I think he may drop a little bit lower than that. Still, he's a very good defensemen with a lot of promise. Also, I would have put Philip Danault ahead of Jean-Francois Leblanc.

    I think St.Croix goes higher. Jenner I believe will be the guy the Leafs take IMO.

    Suprised Chris Gibson isn't on the list and more so that John Gibson is ahead of him. Interesting list otherwise. What kind of player is Jeremy Boyce-Rotevall? Seems low for a guy with Pro-experience.

    Size of players is a bit messed up. The biggest errors are probably Arzamastsev who is 6'0 192 and Tvrdon who is 6'2 212.

    I would change Strome and Khokhlachev in that list.
    And you forgot Tobias Rieder. Keegan Lowe won't be drafted. And when in the 7th round.

    I was under the impression that Mayfield was already a solid mid first rounder with some helium. Not that this list or Central Scouting, etc ulltimately mean much.
