    I don't know enough to criticize the first round overall, but I doubt the Flyers take a goalie in the first three or four rounds A) because we almost never go; and B) because we need defensemen with NHL potential.

    As much as I would love the Kings to get Okposo....I really can't see the Islanders passing on him to get Sanguinetti. But stranger things happen in the actual draft so......who knows.....and LeftKinger.....don't let those other posters say "No way will my team do that".....because they are the first ones to say "What The Puck"....when their teams make a pick.

    not a bad first go at a mock draft at all.

    as for Sanguinetti being so high.... stranger things have happened (Blake Wheeler at #5 anybody?)

    Isles have their share of offensive minded d-men (Campoli, Gervais, Gerbeshkov), I would like them to take one of the forward players preferbly Brassard or Okposo.

    Now i know little about the Flyers system, so i don't know what goaltending prospects you have between the pipe. However, the Flyers have often been let down by average goaltending in recent years, and that is something which needs to be fixed. Bernier is a very good prospect.

    I like Fischer, but I can't see the Blues going defender/defender with their two first rounders. Too many holes up front.

    They'd take the forward at 31, and there's still several on the board at that point to choose from. I can easily see them taking two blueliners with those first three picks.

    On top of Wheeler, who thought Dubnyk or Setogucci would go as high as they did. Or look at the NFL and Whitner this year. When a team can't trade down and it wants a player, they'll pick them, no matter what slot they're in.

    Draft position matters the least in hockey of all professional sports. Football, baseball and basketball all have some form of salary slotting. In hockey it's just "eh, I'm really good so I have leverage on you, give me the rookie max" or "please sign me, I'll take less!"

    If this happens I for one would not be very happy. If we take Erik Johnson at #1, I see no sense in taking a project defenseman over a project forward with the holes we have up front. If we trade down and get Staal, then I could see taking Fischer at 27.

    there is just zero need for him...They will not take him that high, they are in desperate need for a big center or scoring winger, and Sanguinetti is a lot like gervais, campoli, grebeshkov.

    I know what you mean, but A) it looks like Nitty is the guy for the short- and medium-term; B) we have Beauchemin and Houle in the pipe (Beauchemin looks good; Houle = less so); and C) it is just an organizational philosophy that we do not take goaltenders that early. It's been since Oullet and Pelltier since we have gone that way. Besides, Bernier would not help our goaltending now, since he will not jump to the NHL immediately (especially not on our team). The pick is not bad (from what I understand, Bernier has #1 written all over him), but "The Flyers always have mediocre goaltending" is not a good reason for us to use that pick on Bernier right there. Look for a defenseman.

    In the first round teams do not draft by need they draft by best player available. When these guys develop, team needs will most likely change. If the Isles scouts feel Sanguinetti is the best player available at 7 then they take him at 7.

    I don't know who the Isles think the best player available is, at 7 I don't think it's Sanguinetti, but I'm pretty sure they won't draft a player based on need.

    Damn codeine cough syrup. :eek: Anyway, I never quite understood the reasoning, but Clarke just does not take goaltenders early. I guess that is not too weird, since there has always been a bias against using high picks on them, but he is very consistent. It's not out of the realm of possibility, but I really expect to see a mobile defenseman taken first.
