    No way :edm takes Chychrun 4th. They need RHD not LHD and he's not close to the BAP.
    :phi has plenty of D prospect, they'd take Max Jones if he's available.

    If we get Rasmus Asplund at 30th holy fuck that'd be amazing. Asplund is GOAT of this draft.

    I agree we are stacked on D we have to get a scoring winger.

    I think Edmonton needs as many defenders as possible. Doesn't matter if their lefty or righty. I just think Chychrun is the best defender in the draft so therefore why not pick him. Who knows they may trade the pick for a right-handed defender.

    At the same time, it's a mistake to choose Chyrchrun when he's clearly not he best player available. They could use the pick for Tkachuk or Dubois, then trade Eberle/Yak and Nuge for help on defense.

    Looks good, but Chychrun to Edmonton seems like it could change.

    IMO, if Tkachuk is there the Flames will take them.

    A few players are too low here (Rubtsov, Asplund), but players being too high is my main issue with most of this. Stanley is gonna go 25-30 if he even makes the first round. Philly makes even less sense, especially with Jones and Gauthier right there (both are better players, both address Philly's needs better). I personally think Hart is better than Gustavsson, but I've seen mock drafts that disagree.

    Also, I don't care if he's over-rated, DeBrincat is still a first-round talent and so is Abramov. Howden is also probably high. I also don't think Chychrun will go 4th overall.

    What I really liked about this were a bunch of the individual selections. Fabbro to Boston would be great, so would Jones to the Islanders. Toronto selecting as goalie make a ton of sense. Keller would be great in NJ. Mascherin in Anaheim intrigues me. Overall, a pretty good mock draft.

    Also, it's not unrealistic at all, but I hope Boston doesn't select Tufte. I just don't see a ton of ceiling in him.

    There's no way Chychrun goes to Edmonton. Not only does Edmonton really not need anymore LHD, but Chychrun isn't even the best d-man available in the draft. They would likely pick Tkachuk (if they keep the pick).

    Totally agree I would be surprised if they even select Juolevi or Sergachev. If we keep it it's most likely going to be Tkachuk, maybe Dubois.

    How did Tkachuk drop to 8th?

    Well if the Oilers keep their pick they're most likely gonna select either Dubois or Tkachuk. And I'm pretty sure Benning has said that the Canucks will select one of the two. So I don't see him dropping past 5th.

    Your mock draft is overall pretty good however I doubt Logan Brown drops to 17.

    What type of player do you think Kevin Fiala will end up being? He was ranked and drafted high in 2014 and I haven't heard much about him since, why is that?
