    Just want to know who to trust:

    Whose mock draft do you think is usually the best and gives you the most information?

    I like the TSN method because it involves more than one person and it done in a draft like way. There are also different opinions on players which makes it more realistic whereas other Mocks tend to come from the organizations lists on rankings.

    Drafts are unpredictable and so is the TSN approach.

    Maybe but I doubt guys like Cuthbert know much about the draft. He doesnt know the players like many scouts and even fans do.

    Mock is for fun only. I'm sure there are teams and scouts that think some of the players ranked in the first round won't have chance to ever play in the NHL.
    In these mocks people base their pick on some tidbit of info that makes them take a like or dislike toward a player but mostly the pick will be somewhat close to the players ranking. This especially holds true for mocks that go two or more rounds.

    Mock drafts in general are the next thing to useless. Outside of the top 5 picks, there won't be a single one of the 100+ mocks posted on this site that gets more than 2 players right, and that'll be just pure dumb luck.

    If you want draft information, look up some of the various player rankings that some people have put together here instead - some are actually quite good and well-researched.
