    1. Edmonton – D Adam Larsson: They strongly consider taking RNH first overall, but having loaded on blue-chip forwards in the past few drafts, they address their weak defensive core by nabbing a potential franchise defenseman who can step into the lineup and make an impact right away.

    2. Colorado – LW Gabriel Landeskog: With the Avs being deep at center, they take a complete all-around winger who can contribute immediately.

    3. Florida – C Ryan Nugent-Hopkins: A perfect fit. Needing more offense, the Panthers take a dynamic, skilled center in the draft who could end up being the best player in this draft.

    4. New Jersey – D Ryan Murphy: The Devils address their need for offense from the blue line by grabbing the best puck-moving defenseman in the draft.

    5. NY Islanders – D Dougie Hamilton: Isles take the best defenseman available to help build up their back end.

    6. Ottawa – C Sean Couturier: The Sens address their weak group of forward prospects by adding a big two-way center capable of putting up 70+ points in his prime.

    7. Atlanta – C Jonathan Huberdeau: The Thrashers get a forward with high end offensive ability who can play either center or wing. Would look good alongside Kane and/or Burmistrov.

    8. Columbus – C Ryan Strome: Blue Jackets take a natural center with good playmaking skills and goal-scoring abilities. Will likely need another year in junior.

    9. Boston – C Mika Zibanejad: One of the fastest risers in this year’s draft, the Bruins get a great power forward with size, soft hands, and vision.

    10. Minnesota – LW Sven Bartschi: The Wild love Bartschi’s goal-scoring abilities.

    11. Colorado - D Duncan Siemens: The Avs go for the best defenseman available after taking a forward in Landeskog with their first pick.

    12. Carolina – RW Joel Armia: A big winger with good offensive skills and an incredible shot.

    13. Calgary – C Mark McNeill: The Flames get a complete all-around forward with good hockey sense.

    14. Dallas – D Nathan Beaulieu: The Stars grab a potential powerplay quarterback.

    15. NY Rangers – RW Tyler Biggs: A wild card, the Rangers get a promising power forward in Biggs.

    16. Buffalo – D Jamieson Oleksiak: The Sabres are salivating over a potential future twin-tower pairing consisting of Myers and Oleksiak.

    17. Montreal – C Mark Scheifele: The Habs get a tall, lanky, playmaker with a good scoring touch.

    18. Chicago – LW Brandon Saad: Another big winger, the Hawks get a player who can contribute in all situations.

    19. Edmonton – C Zack Phillips: After taking Larsson first overall, they nab a talented player with superior vision and high hockey IQ.

    20. Phoenix – LW Matt Puempel: The Coyotes are not concerned with Puempel’s injury and love his goal scoring abilities. Potential steal of the first round.

    21. Ottawa – LW Nicklas Jensen: A winger who brings a good skillset, vision, and hockey sense.

    22. Anaheim – RW Ty Rattie: Ducks get a natural point producer who is creative and smart with the puck.

    23. Pittsburgh - D Jonas Brodin: The Pens pick up a mobile defenseman with excellent vision and defensive instincts.

    24. Detroit – D David Musil: A blue liner who brings a good solid defensive game and has offensive instincts.

    25. Toronto – RW Dmitrij Jaskin: The Leafs get a highly competitive Czech who plays a good well-rounded game.

    26. Washington- RW Vladislav Namestnikov: The Caps nab a skilled Russian.

    27. Tampa Bay – F Rocco Grimaldi: A mini dynamo with high potential.

    28. Toronto – D Joe Morrow: Burke loves Morrow who is a talented defender with good offensive upside.

    29. San Jose – LW Shane Prince: The Sharks continue their tradition of drafting Ottawa 67’s.

    30. Vancouver – RW Tomas Jurco: A creative Slovak with high offensive potential, fantastic hands, and good vision.

    Thoughts? :D
