I'd like to see at least ONE trade. I mean, we've got so, so many trade options with a number of players, plenty of needs, some depth. I won't be disappointed if there are no trades, but I have to think Yzerman will have a few offers to chew on.

I have a feeling SY will make Feaster look like a minor league Pokemon player.

I think he goes simple and conservative. Maybe makes one trade to move back to acquire more picks - that's it.

My prediction for our pick:

Someone trades up to 4, but more likely 5, and takes Campbell or Connolly. Most likely Campbell for a trade-up. That drops Fowler or Gormley to us, and we walk up, announce the pick, and get off stage. Little drama.

The only drama will happen if all dmen go 3-4-5, but I think there's a better chance Connolly or Campbell goes to someone at 5. If that does happen, I expect us to take Connolly, not Campbell, and I'd doubt we trade back though I'd be in favor of it.

If we don't trade down with Gormley off the board I will be sad

If anyone's interested, I drew up my own mock based on discussions we've all had here and my own views. (Facebook login required but the note isn't private)

I've read the Blackhawks are very interested in goalie Jack Campbell and have spent extra time talking to him, but he could go as high as No. 6 to us.

So my question is what would it take for the Hawks to deal for our pick? Versteeg and a pick or two? They have five picks in the first two rounds -- Nos. 24, 30, 43, 54 and 60.

Maybe we could throw in Smaby or Walker for another pick. Could be something to look for.

I may change my prediction...

Was just watching TSN's mock draft broadcast and apparently Yzerman was really talking up Johansen to Duthie. Duthie said Yzerman had "tons of praise" for Ryan, and that his development in Portland was "off the scale."

Craig Button picked Johansen over Fowler at TB's slot, saying Johansen was a complete forward and very much like Yzerman.

They had Connolly going at 4, Gormley 5, Fowler 7, Campbell 8 to Atlanta, Nino 9, Skinner 12 to Anaheim.

Coyotes trying to move up from 13.

Quote:
As of this writing, the Coyotes own the following overall selections: 13, 22, 52, 113 and 138. But don’t be surprised if things change quickly because the Coyotes have their eye on a player who likely won’t be available when they first pick at No. 13. I’m told they are listening to offers to move up to the No. 8 or No. 9 spot and may be willing to part with the 22nd overall pick and/or a young player in the system to do that. We shall see.

No way Dudley passes on Campbell at #8 if he's there. IF Dudley still has the #8 later tonight!
