We’re doing something a little different, instead of one person doing their own mock draft, we are going to set ourselves in a semi-draft atmosphere by splitting the teams between the three of us (Cujo, Joey, RD) and picking our draft that way. We figure it’ll make things a little interesting and a little competitive as well. There will also be a little reasoning behind each pick.
In order to keep things from getting long, we’re dividing up the draft into two parts, 1-15 and 16-30.
Without further ado, here is part 1 of our draft!
1. Edmonton Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, C (Red Deer, WHL)
Highly anticipated number one. As much young talent the Oilers have. Why not stack the deck with even more elite talents.
