    This is the first mock I've made for this draft so go easy on me. I'm not as well versed on all the prospects that I'd like to be so most of my knowledge of them stems from what I've read both here and in various publications. That said, here it is, let me know what you think:

    1. Chicago Blackhawks - RW Patrick Kane
    2. Philadelphia Flyers - C Kyle Turris
    3. Phoenix Coyotes - D Karl Alzner
    4. Los Angeles Kings - LW James van Riemsdyk
    5. Washington Capitals - RW Alexei Cherepanov
    6. Edmonton Oilers - C Angelo Esposito
    7. Columbus Blue Jackets - RW Jakub Voracek
    8. Boston Bruins - C Sam Gagner
    9. St. Louis Blues - D Keaton Ellerby
    10. Florida Panthers - D Nick Petrecki
    11. Carolina Hurricanes - C Logan Couture
    12. Montreal Canadiens - D Kevin Shattenkirk
    13. Toronto Maple Leafs - C Brandon Sutter
    14. Colorado Avalanche - D Jon Blum
    15. Edmonton Oilers (from New York Islanders) - C Zach Hamill
    16. Anaheim Ducks (from Tampa Bay Lightning) - D Thomas Hickey
    17. New York Rangers - RW Oscar Moller
    18. Calgary Flames - D Alex Plante
    19. Minnesota Wild - C Colton Gillies
    20. Pittsburgh Penguins - LW Maxim Mayorov
    21. Phoenix Coyotes (from Dallas Stars) - LW Luca Cunti
    22. Montreal Canadiens (from San Jose Sharks) - C Joakim Andersson
    23. Philadelphia Flyers (from Nashville Predators) - D John Negrin
    24. St. Louis Blues (from Atlanta Thrashers) - RW Akim Aliu
    25. Vancouver Canucks - C Mikael Backlund
    26. St. Louis Blues (from New Jersey Devils via San Jose Sharks) - C Dana Tyrell
    27. Ottawa Senators - LW Bill Sweatt
    28. Edmonton Oilers (from Anaheim Ducks) - D Mark Katic
    29. Detroit Red Wings - D Ryan McDonagh
    30. Washington Capitals (from Buffalo Sabres) - RW David Perron

    Okay, here we go:

    Espo ahead of Voracek?
    Sweatt and McDonagh that low?
    Aliu and Cunti in the first round?
    Where's Eller?

    This looks like a mock put together a couple of months ago...

    - Alzner to Phoenix? IMO, the last thing they need is a defenseman.

    - Voracek falling to 7th? I have tough time believing it.

    - St. Louis taking another Dman with their first pick?

    Also, about 50% of people's mock drafts have Sutter going to Toronto, which will not happen. Accroding to who was available at 13 in your mock, the Leafs would draft Hamill, Backlund, Mayorov or Eller, probably in that order.

    you must know some very connected people to have info like that..... hell, scouts don't even share those kinds of lists with trusted blood relatives, nevermind hf bloggers.

    True, Coyotes need a dynamic offensive threat. Voracek or van Riemsdyk.

    If Jakub Voracek is available at #6, the Oilers will take him. I don't see the Oilers drafting Esposito at #6. If he's available at #15, then they might risk Esposito but not at #6.

    Thanks for the input guys. Like I said, this was my first mock attempt and I'm still feeling out team needs and prospect value and such to improve it as the draft gets closer. I've already started work on my second installment.

    Yup, if Voracek and Gagner are on the table at 6, we wouldn't choose Espo over either.

    Apart from that, not bad.

    The Coyotes will not draft a defenseman third overall.

    The Coyotes will probably draft whoever they think is the Best Player Available. That might be Alzner, for all you know.

    Edmonton won't pass on Vorecek for Espo (Espo will go 15-25 IMO).... JVR will go to PHX over Alzner, some don't even consider Alzner the top D-man anymore...Cunti, Negrin, Katic, and Aliu will not go in the 1st round (IMO)....I would love for McDonagh to go to the Wings, but I think he will be a top 15 pick. Not a bad try though.

    I'm sure you "knew" the Oilers would not take Devan Dubnyk either when they did.
