Being inspired by other posters making their first mock drafts, I decided to join in on the fun. I tried to use the various HF team sites to get an idea of what each team MIGHT be lacking. I'm going to take the easy way out be only doing the top 14. So here goes: 1) WASHINGTON - Alexander Ovechkin 2) PITTSBURGH - Evgeny Malkin 3) CHICAGO - Rotislav Olesz 4) COLUMBUS - Cam Barker I grouped these four together because, I think, for the most part, this the top plateau. Unless, the Hawks get scared off by Olesz concussions, this is how the top goes. 5) PHOENIX - Lauri Tukonen Due to his play in the U-18s, he seems to be the pick here 6) NY RANGERS - Rob Schremp I've seen a few non-Ranger fans place Wolski here, but, I've heard NO mention of the Rangers having any interest in him. Ladd, Tukonen and Thelen are other possibilities, but, with a team lacking in top line prospects, especially at center, Schremp seems the choice. And, given the uncertainty of Umberger right now, I don't see the Rangers passing up this much skill. 7) FLORIDA - Andrew Ladd While stocked at center, Florida could use a quality LW prospect like Ladd. Tukonen, Schremp and Ladd could go ito any one of the 'Yotes, Rangers or Cats. This would appear to be the next plateau. Unless Florida takes a d-man, I don't think Ladd, Tukonen or Schremp go past 7. 8) CAROLINA - Wojtek Wolski The 'Canes need to add to their forward depth, and Wolski's talent makes him intriguing. With the presence of Brendl, I'm almost tempting to not put Wolski here, but, I think Wolski just seems to be a Hurricane type of pick. 9) ANAHEIM - Wes O'Neill The Ducks are lacking in the offensive d-man department, and O'Neill would appear to be the best option here. 10) ATLANTA - Alexander Radulov The Thrashers are lacking in forwards with offensive capability (aside from Heatley and Kovalchuk, of course). Radulov seems to be the best offensive option on the board. 11) LOS ANGELES - Al Montoya This seems the obvious spot for the first goalie to be taken. Montoya seems to be have a slight edge over Schwartz, at least from what I've read here. Wouldn't shock me to see LA trade down, knowing they'd still have a shot at one of the goalies later in the first. 12) MINNESOTA - AJ Thelen I know the Wild could use help on the wings, but, if Thelen is available, I don't think they pass him up. He immediately becomes their best defensive prospect. 13) BUFFALO - Alexandre Picard The Sabres would appear to have a need at LW behind Vanek, and Picard fills the bill. 14) EDMONTON - Mike Green Another team with a need at offensive d-man. Other options were Lisin and Stafford. Once things get settled after the first round, I will update the next eight teams.
