    I think the Isles take Chippy if they have a crack at him. Other then that, good mock!

    If a Thelen is available the Ducks will take him. Also I think they would prefer Picard over Stafford.

    For the Ducks it was a toss-up between Picard and Stafford. I went with Stafford since he is bigger.

    good overall job with your draft -- i jotted down some notes below that anyone can answer or give their 2 cents on:

    i doubt that the blue jackets move up one spot to take barker since it seems like olesz is the main in chi town -- plus the jackets dont have another pick until #84 if they move pick #64 and #4 for the 3rd overall

    it will be interesting to see what the rangers/coyotes do on draft day. will the rangers pass on ladd if he is there?? i think the 'yotes maybe as much as a wildcard pick as the hawks are -- would phoenix take a goalie with the 5th pick (although some people say they wont) -- how does that effect what happens below them then

    the blues would love chipchura, but nash, nyi and maybe edm (who will probably take mike green?) wont pass on him more than likely

    i like that fact the you have the caps taking only one dman in the first round -- since it looks like they will end up with 26 and 29 -- take a forward with #29 since the teams after them -- calg(if they win tonite), pitt and chi will take forwards with their picks and then the caps can nab another dman with their 1st 2 round pick
     
  6. I think if Stafford, Thelen, Radulov, and whoever is off the board, the Wild will surprise people and reach down again and pick a player no one knew was there. I'm thinking Korpikoski...

    No. Lemaire want another quebecquer.
     
  8. Oh hell no they don't. They haven't signed one, and the only ones that have worked out is the free agents.

    Ladd is more likely the pick at #6for the Rangers, and forget about Bolland at #24. In the three previous drafts, the Rangers have not taken a player out of the OHL. It's either WHL, US colleges, the USHL or Europe.

    Well, they drafted PM Bouchard in 2002, and if you want my opinion, Picard has a little more potential than Bouchard.

    The Blackhawks WILL NOT pick Olesz, and will not trade down. The Blackhawks will pick Tukonen or Barker. Simple as that.

    I think that even if NSH, NYI pass on Chipchura, MTL would snap him up

    I like the idea of the Wild taking a lesser known prospect such as Korpikoski, but for me my guess is Viktor Alexandrov if they do in fact take someone unknown

    I read this on my RedLine Report Draft Guide. That the 'Hawks are split between Barker, and Tukonen. RLR talks to the people making the decisions on draft day, BTW, so I say they are a VERY reliable source.

    THere is no chance the Isles will take Chipchura..
     
  17. That's true number 2...

    And Bouchard hasn't exactly worked out. The guy gets pushed around like a midget out there...I'm not saying Picard is bad but 70 points compared to over 100?

    And ya i really doubt the wild will take another Quebec'r, considering Bouchard looking not so well in the NHL. If Lemaire really wants a Quebec prospect, draft him in the 2nd round or 3rd instead of wasting your 1st rounder just to draft a prospect because he is from quebec, but thats just my thoughts
     
  24. Berzins was taken out of Quebec and we didn't sign him...Dupuis and Michalek are both Quebec players but yeah...We didn't draft them and some of our guys were later rounds that we aren't counting much
