Round 1 1. Edmonton Oilers - C - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Red Deer Oilers need a skilled centre man who can dish the puck for Hall. Lucky for them he is BPA. 2. Colorado Avalanche - W - Jonathan Huberdeau - Saint John I like Larsson a lot, but Colorado traded Chris Stewart and now need someone for Stastny/Duchene to play with. 3. Florida Panthers - RW - Gabriel Landeskog - Kitchener Another rebuild. Great way to start is by drafting a leader and future captain. 4. New Jersey Devils - D - Adam Larsson - Skelleftea Ecstatic that Larsson falls this far. Probably the top player on the Devils board and they get him at 4. 5. New York Islanders - C - Sean Couturier - Drummondville Must take BPA to continue making a push. If Couturier reaches offensive potential Islanders will have a great 1-2 punch 6. Ottawa Senators - C - Mika Zibanejad - Djurgarden Jr. Great all-around game will make Zibanejad the perfect second line centre behind Spezza and may one day take over on the top line. 7. Winnipeg Jets - C - Ryan Strome - Niagara The Jets will be solid from the net out, but need some offensive firepower. Strome provides that. 8. Columbus Blue Jackets - D - Dougie Hamilton - Niagara Everyone likes Murphy here, but I think Columbus plays it safe. Hamilton could become a very solid all-around defenseman in this league. 9. Boston Bruins - RW - Joel Armia - Assat Recchi retired, Horton seriously injured, Ryder a UFA, Boston struggles to put the puck in the net(donâ€˜t tell Luongo). Armia is a sniper who likes to shoot, and should be a welcome addition to the Cup champs. 10. Minnesota Wild - LW - Sven Baertschi - Portland They just canâ€™t score enough to compete. Must take best offensive player on the board. That is Baertschi. 11. Colorado Avalanche - D - Duncan Siemens - Saskatoon Adam Footeâ€™s replacement. Those are big skates to fill, but Siemens plays that kind of game. 12. Carolina Hurricanes - LW - Matt Puempel - Peterborough Puempel has been described as the best goalscorer in the draft, but falls due to injury concern. Carolina rounds out their top two lines with another young sniper. 13. Calgary Flames - C - Mark Scheifele - Barrie Calgary needs to find a #1 center, and Scheifeleâ€™s most recent body of work shows he could become one. 14. Dallas Stars - D - Ryan Murphy - Kitchener Murphy is likely a few years away, which leads the Stars to believe he might take over Robidasâ€™ spot. He falls due to his size and defensive flaws. There is no doubt in my mind that this is the biggest boom/bust prospect in the draft. 15. N.Y. Rangers - C - Mark McNeill - Prince Albert A big power forward with the work ethic and determination to succeed. 16. Buffalo Sabres - C - Zack Phillips - Saint John The skating isnâ€™t great, but he keeps putting up points. Buffalo needs depth down the middle. 17. Montreal Canadians - D - Nathan Beaulieu - Saint John Good all-around defenseman. Will be a great compliment to Tinordi and Subban down the line. 18. Chicago Blackhawks - LW - Brandon Saad - Saginaw Chicago needs help now, and Saad is one of the most NHL-ready prospects in the draft. 19. Edmonton Oilers - D - Oscar Klefbom - Farjestad Jr. 99% of mocks have the Oil going d-man here. Klefbom, Petry and Marincin would give the Oilers three two-way defensemen to build around for the future. 20. Phoenix Coyotes - D - Jamieson Oleksiak - Northeastern The â€˜Yotes have some good D prospects, but some will graduate this year, and Aucoin and Morris are not getting any younger. Comparisons range from Hal Gill to Zdeno Chara, but Oleksiak will likely fall somewhere in between. 21. Ottawa Senators - LW - Nicklas Jensen - Oshawa A big forward who could be a game breaker if he develops more of an edge.
