Savetheisles Mock top 10!

With the draft tomorrow & since I am not familiar with most of the prospects outside the top 10 I decided to limit the mock to just the top 10 picks.

1) Oilers - Ryan Nugent Hopkins C Red Deer

Great forward to add to their already elite cast of forwards

2) Colorado - Gabriel Landeskog LW Kitchner

Hes probably the most NHL ready forward in the draft, his leadership qualities suggest that at the very least he will sport an A if not a C for team(s) in his career.

3) Florida Panthers - Jonathan Huberdeau C Saint John

His awesome playoffs caused him to rapidly rise up the draft rankings and the Panthers starved for talent scoop up a very dynamic offensive player here.

4) New Jersey Devils - Ryan Murphy D Kitchner

The Devils go a little off the board here however, in Murphy they see former Devil Brian Rafalski who recently retired. With Rafalski on the backline the Devils won cups so they hope the same results can be had for Murphy.

5) New York Islanders - Adam Larsson D Skelleftea

Ranked by many as the #1 d-man in this draft the Islanders scoop up Larsson at five. Although some don't think he will be a shut down d-man most everyone agrees that Larsson will end up being a solid #1/2 dman in this league for a very long time.

6) Ottawa Senators - Sean Couturier C Drummondville QMJHL

The Senators stacked on defense scoop up a big 6'4 center who was once projected to go #1 overall but due to elevations in other peoples games and him not elevating his game his stack has fallen a little bit.

7) Winnipeg - Dougie Hamilton D Niagra

They've got a lot of offensive depth prospect wise and they add a very solid and intelligent prospect in Hamilton to their pool.

8) Philly - Ryan Strome C Niagra

After dealing some top offensive players Philly decides to restock the system a little bit and they do so with Strome who has great speed and hands, also will drop the gloves on the odd occasion which is always appreciated in Philly.

9) Boston ( From Toronto) - Duncan Siemens D Saskatoon WHL

He would fit in perfectly with the, "Big bad Bruins!"

10) Minnesota - Sven Baertschi LW Portland

Minnesota can't pass up the guy who was the leading rookie scorer in the WHL last year with 34 goals and 51 assists for 85 points.
