Nation Network Mock Draft: Final Rankings

Over the past few days, the readers of the various sites in the Nation Network have been voting on their rankings of prospects for the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. Today, we reveal the results.

Mock Draft Results

The Canadian teams come away with the following players:

  • Calgary: Sean Monahan (6), Robert Hagg (22), Mirco Mueller (28)
  • Edmonton: Elias Lindholm (7)
  • Montreal: Ryan Hartman (25)
  • Ottawa: Anthony Mantha (17)
  • Toronto: Kerby Rychel (21)
  • Vancouver: Valentin Zykov (24)
  • Winnipeg: Max Domi (13)

A lot of talent stays on the board for round two. Two way forwards like JT Compher and Jacob De La Rose, skilled forwards like Artturi Lehkonen and Connor Hurley, quality defencemen like Shea Theodore, Ian McCoshen and Steven Santini and many more.

    Dudes and Dudettes…as much as Nurse or Ristolainen or zadorov are very good defencemen prospects to chosse at the #7 pick position, the Oilers will not liely choose any in the first round at #7.

    Why?…Cause none of these great prospects are ready for the next probable 3-5 yrs and the Oilers want to get into the playoffs now and the next few years.

    Are any of these…such as Nurse, Zadorov, Pulock, Ristolainen etc,…as good to go now this season as was like Pronger in his first year? or Neidermayer? Scott Stevens? etc, or even Doughty or Fowler???

    No…These are great kids for down the road but the Oilers want to select now a very good 2nd line centre prospect and a top 3rd line top prospect as Travis Iwanyk is not too guaranteed to get there as the next 3rd line centre as yet.

    If not choosing one at #7 then I see the Oilers making trades for a good 2nd line prospect such as Jenner, Strome, and also, then signing up a UFA type guy like such as like Chipchura, Adam Hall,etc for the time being.

    If choosing at #7, then it is surely down to one of such as Lindholm, Monahan, Horvat, Nichushkin or the Oilers even trade somewhere down to between probably 11th (Philly), to with Columbus (19th).

    Personally, I can even see IMO of the Oilers getting Hamonic or Strome and #15th…from the NYI for ….Hemsky, maybe Omark rights, a prospect (Musil/Davidson, and the #7th. Unless thats too much and if so then drop the Oilers’ prospect

    I think you only move that pick if you can get a center or a top paring deman that can be a part of your team for at least 4-5 years. I know I’m probably stating the obvious..

  • OilLeak

    Shanahan in Calgary with King -interesting ? Could we see an assistant GM coming to Flames ? Beware Feaster ? Vigneault to Rangers , now lets hope Torterelli goes to Vancouver ?

  • OilLeak

    I am in total agreement with OilLeak and FSD and whomever else saying that the Oil want Monahan or Lindholm at #7….and I like Horvat myself as to be a future 3rd liner who may move up to 2nd line status.

    This team needs centres more as priority more in the syste than new prospect defencemen as they have a lot in the system moving up (Marancin, Gernat, Musil, Davidson, Simpson, etc).

    Martindale has not gotten anywhere and Iwanyk is just starting out…which leaves Lander, Andrew Miller, and Arcobello. Van De Velde likely wont be re-signed I believe.

    Couturier a bust this year with only 15 points and a minus (- 8) plus minus . He’s available for a lot less than just Eberle . Book it . A 16 pick and someone like Paajarvi is more than they could expect . They are disenchanted with the boy and sophomore season .

  • BurningSensation

    Couturier a bust this year in sophomore season with only 15 points and a -8 plus minus . Eberle worth far more than Couturier . Don’t overrate him and underrate Eberle .

  • BurningSensation

    Gotta believe that if Klimchuk is on the board at 28 the Flames won’t pass on him.
    Scored 38 goals on terrible Regina Pats team, played on 1st line with McDavid at U18s, local kid!!, profile says he plays well at both ends.

    Sounds like a great pick at 28.
