Ok I'm going to take a crack at this for the first time 1. Edmonton Oilers- Ryan Nugent-Hopkins Edmonton takes a center and arguably the best player available 2. Colorado Avalanche- Adam Larsson Helps Colorado rebuild its blueline after the acquisitions of EJ a potential future pairing of the two stud d-men gives the Northwest fits 3. Florida Panthers- Gabriel Landeskog Dale Tallon takes the big Swedish winger who can do it all and seems like a sure fire NHLer 4. Ottawa Senators- Sean Couturier He may have fallen due to immense exposure but Ottawa falls in love with his large frame, 2 way ability and hockey sense. 5. NY Islanders- Dougie Hamilton Solid defender and a much needed player in the NYI pipeline. NYI doesnt pass up on him 6. New Jersey Devils- Ryan Strome NJD takes the center with big time potential to ideally be number one and putting Zajac at number two (or vice versa) giving them a two line center punch 7. Atlanta Thrashers- Jonathan Huberdeau Rick Dudley takes a high potential center to play in his future top 6. 8. Columbus Blue Jackets- Ryan Murphy Columbus gets some much needed potential PMD in there pipeline. Could be this years Cam Fowler 9. St. Louis Blues- Tyler Biggs St. Louis stocks its cupboard with a big powerforward prospect. They don't pass on his upside 10. Minnesota Wild- Joel Armia They don't let him get away...just because he's Finnish 11. Boston Bruins (via Toronto)- Duncan Siemens Boston gets a great defensive prospect. Something there pipeline lacks dearly. 12. Carolina Hurricanes- Sven Bartschi Carolina gets a scoring speedy winger who will look dynamic on Skinner or Staal's wing down the road. 13. Calgary Flames- Mika Zibanejad Best player available at this point. Could possibly the biggest steal come draft day. 14. New York Rangers- Ty Rattie A dynamic wing prospect. Sather will have a hard time not taking him. 15. Dallas Stars- Brandon Saad Another big powerforward prospect. The thought of Jamie Benn and him together should scare some defensemen in the league 16. Buffalo Sabres (sp)- Mark Mcneill A great pick especially considering Buffalo's need for top end center prospects. Mcneill is a big center who brings it all every game. His skating can use some work though. 17. Montreal Canadiens- Jamieson Oleksiak Just what the doctor ordered. A goliath at the back end for Montreal will do them wonders in the intimidation department. 18. Chicago Blackhawks- Mark Schiefel Chicago adds a good center prospect. 19. Anaheim Ducks- Rocco Grimaldi Too much potential to shy away from due to his size. He helps put some much needed offense into the Ducks pipeline 20. Edmonton Oilers (via Los Angelos)- Jonas Brodin Going to go with the consensus pick he seems like a player Edmonton does not pass up on here. 21. Phoenix Coyotes- Nathan Beaulieu Phoenix drafts a sleeper. Possibly one of the better defensemen in this draft class. 22. Ottawa Senators (via Nashville)- Niklas Jensen Possibly the best Dane ever drafted. Sens fans parade around Ottawa while making out like gangbusters in this draft. 23. Tampa Bay Lightning- Scott Mayfield Tampa gets a good defender this late in the draft. 24. Toronto Maple Leafs (via Boston)- Matt Puempel Toronto gets a scoring winger in Matt Puempel. Could be a huge steal after his fall in the rankings due to hip injury. 25. Pittsburgh Penguins- Thomas Jurco Pittsburgh takes a much needed wing prospect. 26. Detroit Red Wings- Rickard Rakell We all know how good they are at developing steals. 27. Toronto Maple Leafs (via Philadelphia)- Alexandr Kokhlachev Toronto takes another skilled European with big time potential. 28. San Jose Sharks- Daniel Catenacci Another great player in the bottom half of the first round. Could turn into a solid 3rd line center or even a top 6 player. 29. Washington Capitals- Zack Phillips A high scoring center. Washington would be hard pressed to pass up on his skill at this point. 30. Vancouver Canucks- Colin Jacobs Vancouver takes a skilled big player at the last pick of the first round. Honorable mentions who couldn't fit in the first round- Victor Rask Dmitrij Jaskin Joachim Nermark Myles Bell Joseph Morrow Your thoughts? Anything you guys think should be different. I might do a second round considering the number of prospects who could be potential first rounders this year.
