    1- Edmonton: C Ryan Nugent-Hopkins
    Height 6.00 ; Weight 155 ; Shoots L
    Gagner, Hall, Eberle, Hemsky, Paajarvi and now RNH… wow !

    2- Colorado: D Adam Larsson
    Height 6.02 ; Weight 209 ; Shoots R
    BPA… and they need a top-pairing d-man.

    3- Florida: LW-C Jonathan Huberdeau
    Height 6.01 ; Weight 171 ; Shoots L
    He is an artist. Great playmaker, strong without the puck. « I want a hard-working two-way team » - Dale Tallon this winter on RDS.

    4- New Jersey: RW Gabriel Landeskog
    Height 6.00 ; Weight 201 ; Shoots L
    Two-way foward, very physical and a great leader you say ? Next Devils captain !

    5- Islanders: D Ryan Murphy
    Height 5.11 ; Weight 176 ; Shoots R
    With Okposo, Nino, Tavares, Bailey, Nielsen and Parenteau, they are ok. They draft the best d-man avalaible.

    6- Ottawa: C-LW Sean Couturier
    Height 6.04 ; Weight 191 ; Shoots L
    Two-way foward, great 1-2 punch with Jason Spezza.

    7- Manitoba: C Ryan Strome
    Height 6.01 ; Weight 183 ; Shoots R
    Manitoba select an offensive foward.

    8- Columbus: D Dougie Hamilton
    Height 6.04 ; Weight 193 ; Shoots R
    They draft a good two-way d-man.

    9- Boston: D Nathan Beaulieu
    Height 6.03 ; Weight 191 ; Shoots L
    Big and good offensively ? Boston loves.

    10- Minnesota: RW-C Mika Zibanejad
    Height 6.02 ; Weight 192 ; Shoots R
    BPA.

    11- Colorado: W Sven Bartschi
    Height 5.10 ; Weight 185 ; Shoots L
    A d-man with the first pick, a foward now. Will they think about drafting Gibson with this pick ?

    12- Carolina: W Rocco Grimaldi
    Height 5.06 ; Weight 160 ; Shoots R
    Surprise ! They pick a north American forward, like always. An offensive dynamo.

    13- Calgary: RW Joel Armia
    Height 6.03 ; Weight 187 ; Shoots R
    Flames need offense and they pick the BPA.

    14- Dallas: D Jamieson Oleksiak
    Height 6.07 ; Weight 240 ; Shoots L
    He is the best d-man avalaible. Adding Oleksiak would definitely help young d-men like Goligoski, Fistric and Grossman.

    15- Rangers: C Mark McNeill
    Height 6.02 ; Weight 210 ; Shoots R
    Another physical foward with good upside to NYC.

    16- Buffalo: J.T. Miller
    Height 6.01 ; Weight 190 ; Shoots R
    Big and physical center ? Buffalo says come here.

    17- Montréal: C Mark Scheifele
    Height 6.03 ; Weight 175 ; Shoots R
    I hope he loves poutine because Montréal wants a foward with top potential. With Gorges, Subban, Diaz, Weber, Tinordi and Emelin, they're lock or close.

    18- Chicago: C Boone Jenner
    Height 6.01 ; Weight 193 ; Shoots L
    They add a center. And he is a great warrior… good for the playoffs. Or a goalie ?

    19- Edmonton: D Duncan Siemens
    Height 6.03 ; Weight 192 ; Shoots L
    A big two-way d-man, hell yeah !

    20- Pheonix: LW Matt Puempel
    Height 6.00 ; Weight 190 ; Shoots L
    The Yotes need a true top-line foward.

    21- Ottawa: RW Nicklas Jensen
    Height 6.03 ; Weight 186 ; Shoots L
    Ottawa has good defensive depth so they draft a second foward. IMO, he is a risky pick but the reward is important.

    22- Anaheim : C Zack Philips
    Height 6.00 ; Weight 180 ; Shoots R
    Selanne, Blake and Koivu are old, they draft a foward.

    23- Pittsburgh: LW Brandon Saad
    Height 6.02 ; Weight 200 ; Shoots L
    They want a big winger for Crosby or Malkin.

    24- Detroit: D Oscar Klefbom
    Height 6.02 ; Weight 201 ; Shoots LD
    With an old defensive group, they draft a young O d-man.

    25- Toronto: RW Tyler Biggs
    Height 6.02 ; Weight 200 ; Shoots R
    They add toughness and size.

    26- Washington: RW Dmitri Jaskin
    Height 6.01 ; Weight 196 Shoots L
    Probably the BPA.

    27- Tampa Bay: Jonas Brodin
    Height 6.00 ; Weight 172 ; Shoots L
    Tampa wants a young and smart d-man.

    28- San Jose: C Phillip Danault
    Height 5.11 ; Weight 162 ; Shoots L
    They need speed. They draft speed. He is probably best leader of the 2011 draft.

    29- Toronto: D Scott Mayfield
    Height 6.04 ; Weight 200 ; Shoots R
    Burke loves this big and physical d-man.

    30- Vancouver: D David Musil
    Height 6.03 ; Weight 191 ; Shoots L
    Last year they wanted Jarred Tinordi. They decide to draft a very smart d-man with size.

    Nice read. Not sure about Saad for the sens. Is Phillips too cute after getting Huberdeau at 6?

    Pretty nice mockdraft, altough a little disapointed I didn't see J.T. Miller, but I'm on his wagon so it's okay :D

    I don't see McNeill dropping to 16 tough, and if it does it will be frustrating for the Habs ! I like the Puempel pick, even tough a lot of guys could fit in well like Jensen or Saad, who's play reminds me of Pacioretty !

    Klefbom before Brodin is interesting, with the two dmans having different quality. I consider both great picks and it will be a mather of style of play, Brodin being more a defense guy than the offensive Klefbom.

    Not sure Boston needs anymore big mean defensemen (Chara, Seidenberg, Boychuk, McQuaid, Cohen, Valabik, Bartkowski, McIver) They'll be looking for a smooth skating offensive D-man or BPA if that player is too far of a reach.

    IMO the B's take Beaulieu or Zibanejad before Siemens.

    Other than that your mock draft is one of the better ones I've seen. Nice job.

    Good call on the Sabres. They need a top-6 center prospect, and I think they'll take McNeill or Scheifele if either is there for them.

    Nice mock and it's very similar as mine. I believe Siemin will be a great pick up for Boston. Also I mad and sad you didn't even put one of the following draft eligible for the 2011 draft wich are Vladislav Namestnikov ranked 11 NA and Alex Khokhlachev.
    I love Alex Khokhlachev and believe that Pittsburgh would take a chance on him and that Detroit would take on either prospect at there turn since they have success with Russian.

    Nice effort, good job.

    But I don't like Biggs for the Oil. You have both him and Saad in our range, which is somewhat surprising, and I would be extremely disappointed with either of them being picked by the Oil in that spot.

    Who said yours wasn't any good? As far as I'm concerned, unless there's some serious discrepancies with rankings, they're all as good as any.

    Hold your head up high, man! ;)
