so, another mock for you, let me know what you think of picks I made for your team 2011 NHL Mock Draft Round 1 1 - Edmonton Oilers - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, C, Red Deer Rebels, WHL I've made a full 180 turn on Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. He has answered most questions I had on him. I think we all know what he's about, everything that could be said has been said. Comparable: Brad Richards 2 - Ottawa Senators - Sean Couturier, C, Drummondville Voltigeurs, QMJHL I'm a big believer in Couturier. Worst case scenario for him is a very good 2nd line center who'll be a force taking on the opposing team's first line, PK, 2nd PP. I like him a lot and don't see how he could fall. Comparable: Eric Staal 3 - Colordado Avalanche - Adam Larsson, D, SkellefteÃ¥, Elitserien He's my number 3 player from now on. I like Larsson. What you get at minimum is a solid defender. He has shown promises offensively, only has to show he can handle both the offense and defense at once and not just one at the expense of the other. 4 - New York Islanders - Gabriel Landeskog, RW, Kitchener Rangers, OHL Of the top 4, I think Landeskog has a chance to fall. I have some questions as to his offensive abilities. Ultimately I think he's a good second line winger who'll play good defense. 5 - Florida Panthers - Jonathan Huberdeau, C, Saint John Sea Dogs Huberdeau had a solid season and made everyone around him look better. Coming to the draft, he had just as good a season as Couturier. I would not be surprised if he went ahead of both Couturier and Landeskog. In fact, I like him better than Landeskog. 6 - :thrashers Atlanta Thrashers - Duncan Siemens, D, Saskatoon Blades, WHL Most people see Siemens go lower, however, he's the most physical player of the draft and has good puck skills. I don't think he'll ever become an offensive juggernaut, however, he'll hold his own. He brings solid defense to a team that very much needs it. Comparable: Luke Schenn 7 - Boston Bruins (from Toronto) - Douglas Hamilton, D, Niagara IceDogs, OHL Bruins could go many different ways here. I see them pick Hamilton if he's still on the board. They don't have a defenseman who's good on both offense and defense. Cohen is nice but isn't a complete defenseman. Hamilton is best available at that point IMO. 8 - New Jersey Devils - Tyler Biggs, W, USA NTDP U18, USHL I like Biggs a lot. He won't win a scoring title but he'll do a lot for you. He plays a solid overall game. He has good offensive skills, not great but plays terrific defense and is very aggressive. Devils could use a more offensive player like Armia but he fits in what they do. Comparable: David Backes 9 - St. Louis Blues - Ryan Strome, C, Niagara IceDogs, OHL Blues can afford to go best available with their depth. Strome is a physical player with very good offensive skills. He fits right in with a guy like Tarasenko. 10 - Carolina Hurricanes - Brandon Saad, LW, Saginaw Spirit, OHL Saad plays a solid overall game. Canes need help on the left side. I like his game a lot on the PK. Canes have shown they liked those guys in the past. 11 - Columbus Blue Jackets - Joseph Morrow, D, Portland Winterhawks, WHL I'm not a huge fan of Morrow. From what I've been hearing, it looks like a team will reach for him early in the draft. I think he's very comparable to Beaulieu, whom I see as a 2nd round guy. Jackets need help on D. I'm taking a guess they may jump on him. They passed on Fowler for lack of physical play. Morrow may not be a punishing d-man but he's more physical than Fowler, than weaker offensively. 12 - Buffalo Sabres - Mark McNeill, C, Prince Albert Raiders, WHL McNeill fits in with Kassian and Foligno. Big guys who can skate and play good 2-way game. Sabres need big players with skills.. Ennis, Gerbe and so on are all fine but they need to mix it up a bit. 13 - Minnesota Wild - Ryan Murphy, D, Kitchener Rangers, OHL I don't think Murphy is going to contend for the early spots. Offensively gifted, but I don't see him handling big minutes in the NHL. However, the offense will be there. Minnesota needs to add more offensive players. He should takeover for Zidlicky. 14 - New York Rangers - Mika Zibanejad, C, Team DjurgÃ¥rdens IF, Elitserien I like Zibanejad, though I think he's getting overrated a bit. Rangers want to be a tough team to play against, Mika can come in and fit right in with Dubinsky, Callahan, McIlrath and all those 2-way, physical guys. Comparable: Travis Zajac 15 - Anaheim Ducks - John Gibson, G, USA NTDP U18, USHL Gibson is my n'1 goalie. I like him more than Jack Campbell. He's not getting much love, however, if there's one goalie to be picked in the 1st round, I think it could be him. He's got size and skills.
