<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>RobbStark03</b></div><div>You traded Montreal's 101 pick to Nashville and Edmonton. Also, I am super sour because we have very different Montreal draft picks in the second :)</div></div>
God damn it you're right! Even after re-reading me 3 times this one fell from me (Also should've wrote *Columbus from Carolina for the 52nd pick but sadly CapFriendly isn't giving you much to edit your mockdraft. One of the trade should've been made with pick 105.
As for our differences what where your picks (According to who's left on the board onto this mock)? I'm no better than you so let's discuss! If Mysak's there you have to take him, he's first round talent. I obviously wanted Topi but I've fu*ked myself with Carolina's trade hahaha, that's why the trade down. Not sold on Evangelista as I was an inch away from taking Cormier but he did manage to make a ppq in his first full year with London.
<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>PuckLuck_77</b></div><div>but I just don't see the Kings picking Stutzle even with Vilardi/Turcotte/Kupari in the system. Vilardi is still a bit of a question mark due to his health issues (and I'm crossing my fingers that he's past them!!), Kupari has winger written all over him in the NHL, and Turcotte played left wing at times in the USNDP so he's an option on the wing if they desire. So even if they did go with Byfield, they have plenty of options on the wing. That's not even counting Akil Thomas, Madden, (both of whom will probably be more effective wingers than centers at the NHL) or JAD.
The second round, I really like the Foerster pick. If the Kings go Byfield at two, I definitely see picking a swing-for-the-fences type dynamic scoring winger to help solidify a question mark area. If they pick Stutzle though, I can't imagine they'd go for another winger with their first pick in the second round. I'd suggest Topi Niemela in your draft as someone who would still be available at 35. Then another winger or center for the other picks in the second round.
Again, really good job. Hope you take these comments as a conversation piece instead of a "YOU'RE JUST WRONG" type comment that I've seen around.</div></div>
Oh man I wasn't aware that basically all of your center prospects were projected to play winger, thought I think Turcotte stays at center. He did play winger but has enough defensive awareness and faceoff skills to grow as a center in the NHL.
Niemela's a nice pick but Sourdif could also be considered, from what I saw/read he really is an explosive player at both end of the ice. (He) May not have that high ceiling but very high floor pick.
Your comment contain way too many words for me to just think it's a ''You're just wrong'', it's a nice inside view of your pipeline. There's no one on CapFriendly able to know on the tip of their fingers all 31 teams pipeline so it's welcomed!
