Lottery Winners:
  1. New York Rangers
  2. Detroit Red Wings
  3. Montreal Canadiens
ROUND 1TEAMORIGINALPLAYERDETAILS
1New York Rangers-Rangers have good wingers but are missing a true number 1 center, securing the next Getzlaf over Lafreniere is a better move after signing Panarin.
2Detroit Red Wings-To be fair if this happen I'm pretty sure Montreal is all over their phones trying to make a deal to the Wings and giving up whatever it takes get an elite LW.
3Montreal Canadiens-If they don't trade up Montreal avoid taking another undersized player early and pick Holtz. Can score from anywhere, good IQ and skates very well.
4New Jersey Devils-Jersey goes BPA, Raymond will be able to come in and takes the top6 spot when NJ moves on from Simmonds. (Zacha, Hugues, Raymond ... That sounds like a good line to me)
5Los Angeles Kings-Anyone would make sense in this slot ... There's not really a glaring need in this line up but there's nothing that pop out either. Good two-way center that'll be able to learn the game behind Kopitar.
6Ottawa SenatorsSan Jose Sharks
Yaroslav Askarov
It's high but with what's being said about this kid there doesn't seem to be any glaring weakness in his game at his age so ... Ottawa locks up the future and gives their goalie time to develop before before bringing him in.
7Ottawa Senators-Tough choice here between Rossi and Drysdale but looking around there doesn't to be any high end talent prospect down the middle compared to the defense. Ottawa pulls the trigger on an undersized but really intelligent center.
8Anaheim Ducks-No need to say anything. Imagine an Lindholm/Drysdale pairing.
9Chicago Blackhawks-High offensive upside but he's a project.
10Columbus Blue Jackets-Columbus takes a shot on Perfetti, excellent play maker but his skating is not good enough for top 6 in modern day NHL. Project.

Why do you feel Stützle is a project ? I really like his game and think he could slide into that top 5.

1. NYR has a 70 point scoring #1C in Mika Zibanejad
2. I though Lafreniere was a centre?
3. Lol NJD will probably move on from Simmonds (12 pts in 35 GP)

He's one great offensive talent but needs to work a little on the other side of the ice, he could very well slip inside the Top5 but I feel he's less complete than the ones above him. Every mock is personal obviously but I prefer picking early guys as complete as they can be and not take too many chances in the top 5 (If I was a GM).

1. They do but it's behind him that I'm not that convinced. Strome is having a great season for himself but until he shows that he can be that productive in back to back seasons I'll still have a question mark on him. Chytil seems to be having a great season debut but haven't watched enough on his games to see if he'd be even better on the wing. Byfield is one piece of a man ... He's a quick learner, skilled tower. To my eyes there isn't a chance that he isn't a Getzlaf type of center, he should become a superstar center for a decade.
2. Mainly seen as LW but can play center. To get his full potential the team drafting him should keep him on the side and not do a ''Galchenyuk experiment'' and try to make him a full time center.
3. That's what I've stated, as soon as they move on from Simmonds the spot opens up for a far more skilled player in Raymond. He's versatile to the top, good on both wings, able to kill penalties or be on the PP with his heavy wrist shot, battles hard even if he's not the biggest guy on the ice. I'd pick him third over Holtz but I thought that Montreal may shy away because of his size (Down the wings they aren't the biggest).
