Who should Anaheim draft at 19?

  1. What type of player should we expect to be there? Could a guy like Frolik or even Tlusty fall? What about guys like Corey Emmerton, Ty Wishart and Patrik Berglund? I rather not see a goalie taken but I guess it's possible the scouting staff could take Bernier.

    Also if any of you have any player comparisons for prospective picks that'd be cool as well.

    I don't think Frolik, Tlusty or Wishart will be there at 19, but that's just me.

    Emmerton would be a good bet. Bernier and Berglund are both maybes.
     
  3. Anaheim should draft Bernier if he is still available.

    Goalies after picks 1-5 in the draft are a crapshoot. I'd much rather select a skater with my top picks and take my chances on a goalie later in the draft.
     
  5. I rather not, Bryzgalov is what, 25? McKee is a pretty decent prospect. I'd like to see a good defensemen drafted but I also wouldn't mind a speedy forward.

    In my first mock, I had the Ducks taking Berglund. I like his size and think he would be a nice compliment to Getzlaf down the middle. If he's there I think he would be a good fit, but they could also use a stay-at-home defenceman if one is available.

    I wouldn't draft Bernier at 19, I don't to waste a 1st rounder on a goalie unless he's a 'can't miss' prospect like Lehtonen.

    Wishart would be nice but probably gone before Ducks pick.

    I'd love to see Oksopo in Ducks...

    If Ivan Vishnevski is there at 19, he would be a good pick for the Ducks. He's offensive and a great skater, and he has adjusted well to the NA lifestyle and the smaller rinks, and would be NHL ready in a year or two.

    Agreed. If Tlusty, Sheppard, Little and Frolik are taken, I hope the Canucks take Berglund at 14. If he's avaliable at 19, I take him.
