ROUND 1TEAMORIGINALPLAYERDETAILS
1New York Rangers-
2Los Angeles Kings-They get their new Kopitar and a great 1-2 punch with Turcotte
3Ottawa SenatorsSan Jose SharksBPA
4Detroit Red Wings-Yzerman will be all over a guy with such a high hockey IQ
5Ottawa Senators-With plenty of D depth, they take one of the best wingers available after taking Stutzle
6Anaheim Ducks-Need a great skating puck mover of their own to compete with other teams in the West like COL, DAL, VAN
7New Jersey Devils-The drop off in D talent is far steeper than scoring talent. There will be other capable scorers at 18 and 20 and I can see them using this pick for the first bold move of this draft
8Buffalo Sabres-Buffalo gets a shooter to eventually play with Eichel
9Minnesota Wild-I like him more than where I have him in this mock, but it’s a win for the Wild. Really a guy you can build a team around
10Winnipeg Jets-Laine replacement if/when they move him
11Nashville Predators-I feel like any of Zary, Lundell, Jarvis, or Mercer can go at 11, 12 and 14
12Florida Panthers-
13Carolina HurricanesToronto Maple Leafs
14Edmonton Oilers-
15Toronto Maple LeafsPittsburgh PenguinsNeed D and go with one of the more NHL ready guys here
16Montreal Canadiens-16-20 are interchangable. But being a Devils fan, I would rather have Halloway and Amirov
17Chicago Blackhawks-
18New Jersey DevilsArizona Coyotes
19Calgary Flames-
20New Jersey DevilsVancouver Canucks
21Columbus Blue Jackets-
22New York RangersCarolina Hurricanes
23Philadelphia Flyers-
24Colorado Avalanche-
25Washington Capitals-
26St. Louis Blues-

It’s CapFriendly. I figured someone may come in hot about Rossi being too low, or Perfetti/Sanderson being too high, or Lundell falling out of the top 10

That’s a lot easier said than done. Teams probably won’t want to give up what Detroit would ask for just to move up a couple spots. Detroit could have done the same thing with Seider, but trading down doesn’t just happen. You see a guy you want that early, you take him.

Some tough choices for some teams but I can see some of these. I think the Kings take Stutzle instead of Byfield. I think he’s more ready than Byfield, played against grown men last year.

Rossi is the dream for us. I don't think he falls to 9 but I can't really argue with any of the picks you made ahead of the Wild in the 4-8 range, they all seem reasonable. I think Sanderson is going to go a lot higher than people are expecting (like you have here), he looks like a near carbon copy of Ryan Suter to me but a little more physical and a little worse at stretch passing.
