Default Mock

The NHL mock on their app is predicting we take Nick Suzuki with the 14th pick, I hope he isn't a bad car...lol or a sleaze like the guy in the old commercials...ok bad jokes sorry.

I doubt he falls that far, but if he does we should hold a parade.

Yep. Safe, but the upside is there.

I love the pick. I thought all along this was a direction they would go.

We had so little you can hang your hat on for certain on the right side. Left side's solid as a rock with Hedman, Sergachev, Koekkoek, and Masin/Hajek providing depth.

Right side you're hoping Dotchin doesn't turn into a pumpkin and then you've got a lot of depthy type guys like Cernak and Thomas. With this pick, you don't have to sweat it. This isn't like DeAngelo. The risk is minimal and you can be fairly certain he'll be a second pair guy you can trust. So, if Dotchin doesn't turn into a pumpkin and the chemistry he has with Hedman really does work well a la Pronger/Carle, you can make an argument your top-4 is set for a while once Foote and Sergachev get to the league.

After rolling the dice and getting burned repeatedly in the first round, Yzerman makes the safe pick. Good choice.

Default Thoughts

Well we will not know for a couple of years how we drafted over the last 2 days, but know I got what are the thoughts of everyone? I like Foote and think he is a very good choice, the Russians look good on paper...seeing will be believing and the last 3 picks? So I am very interested in thoughts on this draft.
