    Well, he has the Oil taking RNH, so they can't be that bad. ;)

    Exactly he's a carbon copy of Brett Lebda.

    The only NHL.com writer that does a decent mock draft is Adam Kimelman. Everyone else sucks

    The links aren't right; this is the worst mock draft by Steven Hoffner:

    http://www.nhl.com/ice/page.htm?id=68930

    C'mon guys, Beaulieu is good offensive D-man...maybe not the 3rd best player in the draft though. And I might be bit biased as a Sea Dogs fan.

    How is it possible that these guys are experts? Adam Kimelman's mock draft looks solid but especially Hoffner...oh my. :help:
    And Morreale doesn't have Biggs or Armia?

    +1, and even his mocks are marginally decent.

    Given how all over the place this draft could be, let's give them a break - they're not completely awful... I think back to 2007 where Thomas Hickey, taken 4th overall, was mentioned to be in the 150's on another teams list. This one could be wild and crazy, so it's really difficult to predict.

    I think we're going to see a hell of a lot of trades though.... I seriously can't wait for this draft!!

    I was being sarcastic because PoG always hates on Huberdeau and Beaulieu..I actually like the rise of Beaulieu and thinks he deserves it. Not just saying he sucks bc I've never seen him play in my life.

    And again, its not hate because I don't think Huburdeau should go top 3 and I don't like Beaulieus game. Plenty of people agree with me. Do they all hate Huburdeau and Beaulieu too?

    I could hate them if you really want me to.

    Probably not, but still it isn't impossible. Early 2nd round might be more likely (for both Gibsons).

    I don't like the guy's overall draft, but he might be right about Gibson (Christopher) going in the first round. In my prelim mock, I have him going to Chicago at 18.

    If the first draft happened from a Leafs perspective I would be really happy

    He may be a Leafs fan? He has them taking Biggs and Saad with their 1sts... I highly doubt either of them will be available with our 1st pick, let alone pick them both without trading up.

    This is another guy dissing Armia... C'mon, 29th after the U18 tournament he's had. :rant:

    Adam Clendenning at 18th and Stuart Percy 21st? They're ranked as 45th and 53rd NA skaters. :shakehead

    I like the Sens taking Max Friberg with their 2nd 1st. It's a bit risky but the Swedes usually pay off for the Sens. Also in the Hoffner draft, he focuses on the RDO wayyyyyyy tooooo much. And I wouldn't say that's a big stage
