<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>TheWwah</b></div><div>I see ottawa wanting to add atleast 1 center and both nj and ana could use a sniper more then a passer though if Detroit wants to add a forward he could go there.</div></div>

I'm not sure they really want a center unless it's one of the top guys in the draft. Up the middle Ottawa already has Brown, White, Norris, Pinto, Tierney, &amp; Chlapik in the system to fill all different roles at some point. Dorion has said he believes Brown could become a 1st line center and he does show glimpses of being that guy. But 6'6 players generally take an extra year or so. Norris is killing the AHL probably the best center down in the AHL. if Byfield falls into our lap or even Stutzle, I don't see Ottawa walking away from either of those two, and they'll figure it out. I think with the pipeline Ottawa has with the centers I mentioned. They have a few players on the wing like Batherson, Abramov, and Formenton, but outside of Batherson I don't believe we have any top end wingers in the system hence why I think they really need to get lucky in this draft and land that #1 spot for Lafreniere. On defense JBD, Thomson, Jaros, Brannstrom, Wolanin, and Lajoie all look like guys who could fill roles, and they also have Tychonic who I really like, and a guy you will hear a lot more of next season in Maxence Guenette. So Ottawa is in a spot to definitely pick best player available as the pipeline is strong virtually everywhere minus maybe a little bit on the wings.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>math731</b></div><div>You wish Quinn falls to your lap... He won't and MTL would definitely take him instead of Gunler... Actually, I'd take anyone of Lundell, Sanderson, Holloway or Jarvis for that matter</div></div>

Bergevin would be nuts!! I like Quinn but on any other team Quinn wouldn't be putting up those types of numbers. If you look at any of his previous teams in any year he never produces at a clip like he is this year.

Most of the mock drafts you will see have Quinn NOWHERE before 17th overall. So thinking the Habs will take him 8th? Bergevin would lose his job before the 10th pick is chisen in the draft. The talent ahead of Quinn is mountains better.

PAPISHARK... The sharks are horrendous everywhere, but the class is rich with goaltenders this season and the Sharks need a goaltender. With guys like Gambrell, Meier, Couture, Hertl, &amp; Lebanc they have enough young forwards to get by, and Karlsson, Ferraro, &amp; Merkley they have some decent younger players to hold the fort as they don't plan on rebuilding. But they have zero in terms of goaltending, I mean nothing. Next year's draft is going to be one of the weakest drafts in a long time and the goaltending depth won't be nearly as good as this year's. So I don't think it would be a stretch to say the Sharks grab a goaltender with their 2nd pick, as it is the main reason they are where they are this year.

<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Ledge_And_Dairy</b></div><div>1-3 makes sense regardless of who picks there. Anaheim might trade down to #5 if they get #3
4. I like that lick for LA they have a lot of center center depth moving forward but probably need a playmaker for Kaliyev, Raymond fits that well.
5. Anaheim will do everything in their power to get Drysdale IMO. 6.
Holtz makes sense to NJ I could see them going with Raymond or Drysdale depending of the lotto though.
7-8. I could see them going either way but I think Buffalo goes with Parfetti for his playmaking.
9. Askarov is a maybe for Chicago, I get your reasoning but I really think they want to give Lankinen a shot first.
10. Gunler is interesting, I see your view on that.
11. Minny needs centers and if Rossi is still available they 100% take him.
12. Nashville has 2 centers locked in long term, I think they draft a right wing or defense here. I could also see them grabbing Askarov if he's still available if they think Saros and Ingram arent a strong enough future.
13. I could see Florida grabbing a center but they traded Trochek, that implies they have some trust in their young center prospects already. I think they get a defense.
14. Vancouver is set at center for a long time, I think they either go for a RD like Barron or Schneider or a RW like Mercer or Quinn.
15. Calgary is set on LD for many many years, what they need is a replacement for Backlund down the road. They will either go with moving Lindholm to center and grabbing a guy like Quin or Mercer or get the best available center.
16. NYR's in an interesting spot, I honsetly don't know what they do, they have a lot of up and coming talent and could opt to trade 1 of their firsts. The only main question mark for their team is their 2C.
17. WPG has a gap to fill once Wheeler is gone, im skeptical on Roslovic taking over the 2C role but it could happen. If they resign DeMelo they should be fine of defense moving forward but that's still sketchy.
18. I dont see Quinn falling past 18 guys a pure goal scorer.
19. Really not sure about Columbus but they really need offensive young talent.
20. Carolina might take a RD but they are so deep on defensive prospects that the pick would jsut be insurance for the chance that Dougie walks.
21. Same as #16 I have no idea what NYR is going to do.
22. I like Perreault here, makes a lot of sense moving forward for Dallas
23. Edmonton does not need defense, they really need wingers. I personally think Guhle will drop the the 2nd round too.
24. A RD prospect is good here, I like this pick.
25-31. I don't know enough about these guys yet, I think Jarvis goes in the first round though and I don't think Grans goes until the mid 2nd</div></div>

That's the wonderful thing about a mock draft so many variables, many of which we don't even know about. Plus I get that Quinn is a pure sniper but I believe Kaliyev is more a pure sniper and went in the 2nd round in a draft that wasn't as deep as this one. Plus some of the so called experts have Quinn going between 18th - 23rd overall. I really like the kid to be honest, but I agree that if he did play on a less lethal team his numbers wouldn't be as great. He's definitely more a supporting player than a driving player. As for some of the defense picks? I would agree to an extent, but part of the problem is defenseman especially RHD are at a premium and this draft doesn't have a ton of high end defenseman in this draft. There are some really good project defenseman but are definitely years away which is why I believe you'll see some defenseman like Grans going in the first round. Lastly, Saros and Ingram are miles ahead of Lankinen. Lankinen has over 3.00GAA and last year in the ECHL was 3.18GAA. I honestly see Chicago in the market for Askarov before Nashville. The Preds really like Saros who will likely be their starter next year. Chicago simply has no one, and in terms for the future? They really have no one at all. But thanks for your opinion I like your perspective and look forward to the draft.
