    So, I just decided to make a mock draft, so... tell me what you think!

    1. Edmonton Oilers - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins
    The Oilers will find that RNH will be too hard to pass up on. Taylor Hall and him will make a deadly pair in the near future.

    2. Colorado Avalanche - Gabriel Landeskog
    The Avalanche are stacked up at center, and Landeskog brings the whole package - leadership, scoring, defensive play, contact.

    3. Florida Panthers - Jonathan Huberdeau
    The Panthers are desperately in need of some top-line talent, and Huberdeau has great upside. He will definately one day make a big impact in Florida.

    4. New Jersey Devils - Adam Larsson
    The Devils will be ecstatic that Larsson managed to fall all the way down to them, as they are in need of a difference maker in defense.

    5. New York Islanders - Dougie Hamilton
    The Islanders have a plethora of young talent up front, so they will need to start stocking up at the back-end. Dougie Hamilton has size and offensive upside, and will add alot of talent to the Islanders' blueline.

    6. Ottawa Senators - Sean Couturier
    The Sens are rebuilding, and while Couturier might not have as much offensive upside as some of the other players, he brings the whole package. He will be ready soon to help the Senators get back on their feet.

    7. Winnipeg ??? - Ryan Strome
    Winnipeg doesn't really have one specific need, and Strome is the best player available, so they will go with him.

    8. Columbus Blue Jackets - Ryan Murphy
    One thing the Blue Jackets have always been looking for is a good offensive defenseman, and they may have just found him in Ryan Murphy.

    9. Boston Bruins - Nathan Beaulieu
    The Bruins are stacked at offense, but not so much at defense. Beaulieu will add some presence at the back end for Boston.

    10. Minnesota Wild - Mika Zibanejad
    Zibanejad is a slick two-way forward that any team would love to have. He's more NHL-ready than most players available in the draft, and the Wild could use him.

    11. COL - Duncan Siemens WHL [D] - 5/38/43 [0.59]
    12. CAR - Joel Armia FIN [RW] - 18/11/29 [0.60]
    13. CGY - Sven Bartschi WHL [LW] - 34/51/85 [1.28]
    14. DAL - Joe Morrow WHL [D] - 9/40/49 [0.81]
    15. NYR - Zack Phillips QMJHL [C] - 38/57/95 [1.41]
    16. BUF - Jamie Oleksiak H-EAST [D] - 3/9/12 [0.35]
    17. MTL - Mark McNeill WHL [C] - 32/49/81 [1.15]
    18. CHI - Vladislav Namestnikov [C] - 30/38/68 [1.00]
    19. EDM - Jonas Brodin SEL [D] - 0/4/4 [0.09]
    20. PHX - Mark Scheifele OHL [C] - 22/53/75 [1.13]
    21. OTT - Ty Rattie WHL [RW] - 28/51/79 [1.17]
    22. ANA - Matt Puempel OHL [LW] - 34/35/69 [1.25]
    23. PIT - Brandon Saad OHL [LW] - 27/28/55 [0.93]
    24. DET - Oscar Klefbom SEL [D] - 1/1/2 [0.08]
    25. TOR - Tomas Jurco QMJHL [RW] - 31/25/56 [0.93]
    26. WSH - Alexander Khoklachev OHL [C] - 34/42/76 [1.13]
    27. TBL - Shane Prince OHL [C] - 25/63/88 [1.49]
    28. SJS - Tyler Biggs USHL [RW] - 17/11/28 [0.58]
    29. VAN - Nicklas Jensen OHL [LW] - 29/29/58 [0.95]
    30. TOR - John Gibson USHL [G] - .918Sv%, 2.64GAA, 1SO

    Hard to see dallas leaving Oleksiak and (or) Mcneill on the board if both are available at 14.

    Your top 10 seems pretty on the money and if there are no trades, could very well pan out that way.

    My tip..

    Zibanejad is this years bolter and goes to the sens at 6!

    It's unlikely that Carolina goes with Armia. Look for McNeill or Scheifele.

    What's your reasoning for that? They have Eric Staal, Jeff Skinner, Tuomo Ruutu, and Brandon Sutter who can all play center in the top-3 lines.

    I thought that maybe Toronto might want another goalie, just because lately the goalies they've had haven't really met expectations, except for Reimer.

    I should be updating this soon one last time before the draft, especially since Philadelphia has Columbus' pick now.

    I don't see Toronto selecting a goalie high, I thought they would last year but they didn't, so I doubt they will this year.
