    6. Ottawa : Gabriel Landeskog
    7. Winnipeg : Ryan Strome
    8. Colubmus : Ryan Murphy

    10. Minnesota : Mika Zibenejad
    11. Colorado (STL) : Duncan Siemens
    12. Carolina : Jamie Oleksiak
    13. Calgary : Mark Schiefele
    14. Dallas : Mark McNeil
    15. Rangers : Sven Bartschi
    16. Buffalo : JT Miller
    17. Montreal : Niklas Jensen
    18. Chicago : Zack Phillips
    19. Edmonton (LAK): Oscar Klefbom
    20. Phoenix : Joel Armia
    21. Ottawa (NSH) : Ty Rattie
    22. Anahiem : Jonas Brodin
    23. Pittsburgh : Matt Puempel
    24. Detroit : Scott Mayfield

    28. San Jose Sharks : Connor Murphy
    29/30. Toronto (BOS) : Vladislav Nadmedniskov
    30/29. Vancouver : Alexander Khoklachev

    Notes:
    - Florida takes Larsson therefore stock-piling it's defence and eventually trading some of it for forward help
    - Grimaldi barely misses the first round
    - Hamilton and Couturier could easily switch places
    - Musil may have gone a bit higher than expected, mainly due to team needs
    - Carolina is really impressed with Oleksiak
    - Beaulieau goes that high because of need mainly

    Wrong place for this thread, and Armia won't fall that far.

    Looks good otherwise.

    Great mock draft. Really like some of the picks. A little different and deviate from the typical mock draft

    Although I love the Namestnikov pick at #29, I doubt Burke and co. pick up a Russian in the 1st round (or in the 1st 3 rounds for that matter).

    Florida is not gonna take a defenseman, even if it's Adam Larsson. We are stacked on defense and we need elite forwards.

    This is the 15th mock I've seen having us take Brodin. :shakehead:help:
    I don't know why everyone is under the impression that Anaheim is looking for defense. Especially since next year's draft is defense heavy. Our team needs are C>G>W>>D

    Sure we could use a few more physical defenders in our system, but we have quite prospects at that position as it is (Vatanen, Schultz, Clark, Heed, Newton, etc.) so unless it's a guy like Oleksiak, Siemens, or Hamilton Ducks pass on D till the second round. And it'll be tough as it is for a prospect to make the jump to the NHL cause we already have 5 of our top 6 figured out for a while, and if one of them leaves, Murray's preference is to pursue a UFA Dman over a prospect.

    No to Brodin. As far as your draft goes after pick #22. Ducks don't pick Brodin and would rather take Puempel, Jenner, or J. Gibson. Those guys would be more important, and more helpful to Anaheim's system at the moment.

    Well, Tallon has hinted very strongly that we will take a forward and that's what we need. Most fans knows that we need an elite forward prospect, and we got a chance to trade down a spot or two if Larsson is there (teams would probably give up a lot to get that chance).

    I think Anaheim needs D as well... seems most people who think that are non anaheim fans... after this years playoffs it only reinforced my opinion that the Ducks need to draft D

    Why not? If he say's it that way, it will likely come true. Until it doesn't and he starts cursing Burke.

    If Gabriel Landeskog is there at 5 the Islanders pick him. Great D men can be found in round 2.

    Sbisa and Fowler aren't fully seasoned yet, and you can bet that over the next 3 years we will fill the holes in our D with the FA pool, not draftees. We'll probably look for shutdown D next year. Our goalie pipeline is pathetic, we have a lack of decent centers, and with Beleskey and Sexton sorta busting, we're gonna need to replenish the wing. The one spot that we are filled with, is D. Even though most of them are offensive Dmen. We can afford to wait one draft to get a shutdown d. As I said before, Oleksiak, Siemens, Hamilton (maybe Mayfield) are the only dmen Anaheim would draft this year. Brodin would just give us another guy we already have (style wise).

    I would be ecstatic if Mika drops to the Wild.

    maybe Tallon figures larsson will be gone by #3, or he's planning on trading down.

    you are correct, usually the only reason people give us hamilton or murphy is so a better forward slips down to their favorite team

    if they even once listened to Garth Snow the man who actually will be making the pick, theyd know that,

    the only way Landeskog gets to 6 is if Larsson, is there at 5 too.

    Ottawa if they want him will need to trade up most likely

    Didn't realize, thought most of NYI's needs on the front-end were filled. Also, im of the opinion that Hamilton has potential to be a top 2 player in this draft.

    Garth Snow has been very open about his opinion of drafting Defenseman in the top 5, he says in general they are too risky to take that high and that he'd only do it if there were no equally ranked forward available

    he believes it is more prudent to draft defenseman later, as he did with Hamonic, MacDonald and De Haan, its just his personal belief

    its why he traded down from Luke Schenn, one thing about Garth, he's tight lipped, but when he does talk what he says is what he believes
