Mock Drafts Aplenty — ESPN, TSN, SI

TSN, ESPN, and Sports Illustrated now have NHL mock drafts posted on their respective sites. Two have the Caps selecting London Knights pivot Sam Gagner with the fifth pick; the other predicts the Caps will pick blueliner Karl Alzner†of the Calgary Hitmen.†
Always interesting to see different writers’ interpretation of how a team’s needs and drafting style impacts their selections. One draft even has potential #1 Kyle Turris dropping to sixth.
Feel free to post a comment linking to other mock drafts you may find . . . the more the merrier!

    Anyone surprised that so far, no one is predicting that anyone will trade their pick? In mock NFL drafts, there’s always the prediction that at least one high pick gets traded, even though it almost never happens.

    Don’t see many top 5 picks get traded in a NHL draft. Typically the potential of the players there have more perceived value to the picking team than one attempting to trade for the pick.

    I just love how we all find the time in the off-season for ‘mock’ anything. Friday is right here before you know it….fun ahead.
    Then July 1. Wowsa.
