    Pretty solid list.

    I think Hamilton goes HIGHER than that though...maybe even top 6-7.

    And I know for a fact that scouts from the Sharks have been to watch PA, just to see Mark McNeill. So that pick could come true.

    And wow its great to see my Avs that high on the list!

    As a Sens fan, I would be estatic with RNH and Jensen.

    The rest looks pretty good IMO as well, except that I think the Isles take Landeskog over Couturier.

    No way. They took a similar-type of player in Nino last year. They take a big center over Landeskog for sure.

    Having seen him play, I would be unbelievably excited if the 'Nucks actually got Jaskin. I agree that Hamilton will go higher (IMO) but other than that it could very well turn out this way, pretty good job picking strengths/weaknesses (and BPA) for all the teams.

    I really can't see Boston picking another forward, especially a center over a player they deprestely need in Murphy.

    And if Oleksiak is on the board and Dallas doesn't take him I'l lose faith in Dallas's scouting and drafting for the first round.

    Nieto does sound like a Shero type pick.

    THIS JUST IN!

    Centres can be moved to the wing!


    But I can see Boston draft Murphy.

    I would love Musil to the Rangers. Any type of puck mover is fine by me.

    I can see the Devils picking Landeskog at that spot as he would be the BPA but we don't really need wingers but it's ok BPA over need.

    They can, but Huburdeau is a player who would be more suited to playing center, and it doesn't change the fact they still shouldn't take another forward.

    Pretty good list. I just have a few opinions:

    - Florida is likely to pick a forward (99% sure of it!). We are stacked on defence (Kulikov, Gudbransson, Ellerby, Robak, Comrier, Petrovic).
    - Victor Rask is way too high. He is probably a late first, early second round pick.
    - Rattie is producing well, but I don't think he's gonna go that high.
    - Jaskins sould be higher, and Beaulieu is too low.

    But a very solid list non the less.

    No Namestikov? I think the Caps would take him instead of Khokalchev,

    aha on the Olesiak bandwagon too? I don't think he will be around and if he is I don't have faith in dallas' first round scouting to pick him.

    as a Isles fan I would rather trade down than take SC

    it's larssons, then RNH then maybe Murphy is our top 3 IMO

    don't need SC..we got K.O and Nino..we need a player with speed not slow and big solid forward

    Side note-Ottawa's is pissing me off...they are a way better team than what they are playing..they don't deserve to have the second pick.....i hope the lottery drops them back to third

    But getting Huberdeau at 5 and gaining Beaulieu wouldnt be that big of a drop off in terms of a puckmoving d-man, and he is 6'3".

    Musil to the Rangers works, but I disagree with SEPH's PP QB scouting report....he may play on a 2nd unit someday, but he more of a top PKer...more of a Marc Staal than a Del Zotto, if you know what I mean.

    I've always been a Namestikov fan throughout the year, but after being able to watch Khokalchev a few times last week really changed my opinion about the two.

    You're a Panthers fan so I take your opinion seriously, but I think Murphy would be too tempting to pass up. Don't mistake the teams with Fowler last year! :naughty:

    Even though Rask has kind of fell this year I still consider him a very good prospect.

    I've always had Rattie around 12-16, so I like where I have him.

    Jaskin can be a surprise and be taken pretty high, so I kind of agree with you there. Beaulieu can go higher, but who would he knock off?



    For Hamilton I considered the needs for teams, but not underestimating BPA. And I just see a lot of teams taking forwards. Hamilton will probably go higher, but I wouldn't be surprised if he dropped out of the top 10.

    I like it. I'd be happy with either SC or RNH.

    if Hamilton falls to 12th, i'd hope murray packages our pick to move up and draft him. yes, i get that we don't need d-men, but hamilton is too good to fall outside the top 10.
