    Our chief scout Dan Stewart finished up his mock draft a few days ago and we've released it in sections because its a bit of a chew.

    Selections 30-21 HERE
    Selections 20-11 HERE
    Selections 10-1 HERE

    Note that this is his mock draft and not our draft rankings. Our February rankings are up HERE

    Love mock season.

    Second time in the last week I've seen a mock draft having Ottawa taking another Dman with their second 1st in which Nick Jensen gets taken with the next pick. We've heard enough that Jensen might be a Sens target.

    You have Boston picking in the first round twice.

    Toronto owns their pick.

    Edit: Oops, i just realized this article was written before Kaberle was traded, my bad! I would love for the Leafs to take Jurco with one of their first rounders.

    I really don't like how you guys word a lot of things. You often make it sounds like you have talked with every team with regards to their picks in this draft.. like when you say Team A's brass really likes the hockey sense in this player, or Team B likes attribute X from so and so player.

    You really make it sound like you've garnered their opinions whereas we all know that you have not.

    Might want to wait After the trade deadline before posting this article. A lot of draft picks gets exchanged and teams needs change. Makes sense no?

    Listen, you need to understand that scouts like to talk, especially when it is in regards to other teams and what they have heard. Anytime an opinion is shared you can bet it is based on something heard or said directly to one of our guys in the rink.

    I find it somewhat humorus though that you bring up something as though you know it to be fact

    when that is the exact thing you were accusing FC as doing.

    Beaulieu is very underrated. He gets overshadowed by the absolute power house goal scoring abilities of the sea dogs...plus he plays in the Q which automatically makes a dman suck :sarcasm:

    It's like I said, it is the way you worded everything (your not even the OP, so I guess you work with him?). When you said that Team A would love to draft him based on this and that, it sounds like you are saying that either you talked to those specific scouts or are making it up to make yourself sound legit. If you actually asked scouts about certain players, mention it in your introduction so that people will believe you when you say stuff like that, and not question it like I have.

    Let it go. I am guessing this is 3, 7th graders and one of them has a dad who subscribes to a scouting report.
    I mean c'mon "our scouting director"? get real. If the eastern block scout really likes a kid I wonder if this scouting director flies over in to take a second look? Maybe you just send their guy from Finland first?

    LOL

    Duncan Siemen at 15?
    Joel Armia at 11?
    Tyler Biggs at 19?


    I have less idea today then I did months ago. After you get past 5 or 6 it is a complete cluster ****.

    Deathly scared of Jurco @ 30th...I guess if we win the Cup, we can take a risk....for as many Havlat's you get Schrempf's, and I dont see the character and intelligence the Canucks brass, so greatly covets.

    As fans, Im sure most of us want burly, skilled, skating North American wingers...I want Jaskin, though.

    It seems every year we go though this and that is fine. Doubt if you want the legitimacy of what FC does, that is your right. For those who enjoy reading about draft prospects we will continue to produce content based on live views and reports from actual scouts who watch these prospects and have real connections in the scouting community. While our reach may not be as far and wide as those “3 seventh graders with a father’s scouting report†would be, we do see these guys we talk about and enjoy bringing information to those whose "entertainment value" is found in talking about future NHL'ers and want to read about them.

    Instead of posts like this lets instead discuss the mock and who you would say fits were on which teams.

    I'd be shocked if the Pens take Jaskin. Under Shero, the Pens are only taking US/Canada players in the top rounds. The Pens are also very fond of players from the Q. I wouldn't be surprised to see them take Jurco. If they are close enough, Armia would be a European they would go for.

    Last year, Shero reportedly wanted Tarasenko before STL moved up to get him.

    When was this thing made?

    Why are the Avs picking at 17, when in all reality, they haven't been that high since mid-January....

    Pretty hard to put any stock into it when the pick positions are SO FAR off.

    Is Gabriel Landeskog becoming Phil Kessel? In 2006 Kessel fell to Boston at 5 and in this one you have Ottawa taking Dougie Hamilton over Landeskog. I just can't see that happening with Ottawa's depth of young, quality defensemen. IMO there is zero chance he gets past 4. IMO the top 4 is pretty clear cut.

    Would love to see Tyler Biggs in a Habs jersey. Perfect fit. I hope this year, MTL picks no one under 6 foot 2.
