    I don't see Puempel going that early due to his injury.

    I don't see Scheifele not being picked in the first round, interesting mock though. Jurco I can't really see cracking the first, same with Namestnikov I have seen him play a lot this year and haven't been too impressed with his overall game. I think that due to the quality of the OHL scouts give players in the O the nod over the Q and W. That is just a feeling I have gotten over the years and it seems to e a constant trend.

    Nice mock, would be really happy if Ottawa scores both RNH and Jensen.

    Interested by having Huberdeau at 5th highest I have seen him so far. I think he is a darkhorse.

    What I find most interesting about this year is how much movement in player positions we may see. Unlikle some other drafts I dont know what order anyone is going to be going in.

    Buffalo is picking a center in round 1. And since you have Minnesota picking Zibanejad the pick after us, I can say with certainty we would be taking him at 13.

    This is why I really hope the Blues start losing on purpose. IMO, there are 8 players that have seperated themselves from the rest of the pack. It would be just like the Blues to end up with the 9th pick.

    It's a pretty good mockdraft, even tough I don't like the :habs choice ! :D If Beaulieu is still available at 22, Montreal should take him.

    Beaulieu is a too low, also not that good of a fit with Green, Alzer, Carlsson and Orlov as relatively young players/prospects on defense. They should get a LW as they are pretty weak on LW aside form Ovechkin
