    So he did a mock draft of just the top 14 picks and I think this guy is out to left field on alot of his picks. Here are those picks...

    Oilers take RNH
    Avalanche take Huberdeau
    Panthers take Landeskog
    Devils take Murphy
    Islanders take Strome
    Senators take Larsson
    Thrashers take Couturier
    Blue Jackets take Beaulieu
    Bruins take Oleksiak
    Wild take Baertschi
    Avalanche take Pumpel
    Hurricanes take Zibanejad
    Flames take Phillips
    Stars take Hamilton

    In bold, you got the ones that I think are out of place

    Well, if the Devils really want a puck moving defenseman, none are better in this draft than Ryan Murphy.

    The Islanders have had plenty of chances to draft a highly touted defenseman in the past (ie. Schenn, Hedman, Fowler) and passed each time. I wouldn't be shocked to see them pass up Larsson if he fell to them.

    The Sens would go BPA probably at that point. Larsson would be too good to pass up I would think.

    I could easily see the Bruins taking Oleksiak.

    Puempel, yes looks high. But he has great scoring ability, his injury may scare people. But all it takes is for one team to like you. But I agree it may be too high for him.

    Agreed on Hamilton, I don't think he drops THAT far, he may drop but not that far.

    Indeed. He lost any remaining shred of credibility when he had the Avs taking Huberdeau 2nd overall. His reasoning also fails - if the Avs want a responsible, 2 way winger, surely they'd take Landeskog before him? That and Larsson falling to 6th is just laughable.

    Button fails at life. More importantly, at hockey.

    This is worse than the most atrocious mock drafts i've seen on HF...says something.

    Larsson @ 6th - not likely.

    Seems like Button made this list trying to please Canadian teams(ie how can I get a top 3 player to fall to Ottawa)

    Given how solid our collection of defensive prospects are looking and how non-existent our forward prospects are, I'm kinda hoping Larrson doesn't fall to us.
