    The NHL draft is one of my favorite days of the year.


    With the weak UFA class, I think we'll see a good amount of player movement.

    After Yakupov and probably Murray, the rest of the top 10 can go a number of ways. Only thing for certain is who ever gets drafted at #3 and #5 will quickly become the most overrated prospects on the planet.

    Here's hoping there is a 2012-2013 season and it starts on time.

    I'm positive that there will be a season but I don't think it will start on time.


    Too much greed on both sides.

    I also hope there will be a season. I say 68 games will do the trick if there is a stoppage.

    Habs will draft Forsburg or Riley if Nails isn't available.

    Re: Official NHL 2012-2013 Thread

    I like Riley. Hes not very big, doesn't really defend all that well and missed almost the entire season with a knee injury but he can really bring the offense from the back end. he is an excellent skater and would be a very good pick for you guys.

    He'd also become the best prospect ever (ok, maybe second behind Subban when he was a prospect) and a shoe in for the hall of fame in the eyes of your fan base, but I don't think that applies to him exclusively. Habs could reach big time at that spot and it would still happen with who ever they pick

    It was already reported a couple of weeks ago, the Oilers aren't trading the 1st pick.

    1. EDMONTON: RYAN MURRAY
    Defence | 6-foot-0, 185 pounds
    Everett Silvertips (WHL)
    Will the Oilers draft their greatest need at No. 1? Doubtful. The more likely scenario is moving down a spot or two for another pick and taking Murray, an NHL-ready two-way defender. (Love)

    2. COLUMBUS: NAIL YAKUPOV
    Right wing | 5-foot-10, 189 pounds
    Sarnia Sting (OHL)
    Injuries — a knee injury and a concussion — limited Yakupov’s production, including an underwhelming post-season performance, but he is projected to have first-line talent. Maybe even Pavel Bure-type talent. (Fitz-Gerald)

    3. MONTREAL: ALEX GALCHENYUK
    Centre | 6-foot-0, 198 pounds
    Sarnia Sting (OHL)
    The high-risk, high-reward sniper missed almost all of last year with a torn ACL, but his upside is immense and, once he matures, he represents the power forward Montreal has long coveted. (Yasvinski)

    4. N.Y. ISLANDERS: MORGAN RIELLY
    Defence | 6-foot-0, 190 pounds
    Moose Jaw Warriors (WHL)
    Rielly proved at the combine he has recovered from a knee injury suffered last November. Few deny his maturity to know when to stay in his defensive zone, and when to jump into the attack. (Scianitti)

    5. TORONTO: FILIP FORSBERG
    Centre | 6-foot-2, 181 pounds
    Leksand (Sweden)
    Yeah, we know that Filip is not related to Foppa. Still, the younger Forsberg plays a similar game to Peter and was the youngest player on Sweden’s gold-medal world junior team. (Traikos)

    6. ANAHEIM: CODY CECI
    Defence | 6-foot-2, 203 pounds
    Ottawa 67s (OHL)
    Bruce Boudreau loved Mike Green in Washington and he should love the big, mobile Ceci, too. He’s been one of the biggest movers in draft rankings this year. (Spurrier)

    7. MINNESOTA: MATHEW DUMBA
    Defence | 6-foot-0, 183 pounds
    Red Deer Rebels (WHL)
    Scoring is the biggest need for the NHL’s lowest-scoring club, but the Wild are also thin at the back. Dumba is an impact player at both ends. (Barrs)

    8. CAROLINA: TEUVO TERAVAINEN
    Left wing | 5-foot-11, 165 pounds
    Jokerit (Finland)
    Tony MacDonald, director of amateur scouting in Carolina, told The News&Observer that Teravainen is “similar in stature and style and skill to Patrick Kane,” though Kane is 20 pounds heavier. (Valois)

    9. WINNIPEG: MIKHAIL GRIGORENKO
    Centre | 6-foot-3, 200pounds
    Quebec Remparts (QMJHL)
    His stock is dropping partly because of suspicions he is older than 18. But if he’s really 20, the Jets can just view this playmaking two-way centre as a seasoned veteran who is NHL-ready. (Stinson)

    10. TAMPA BAY: GRIFFIN REINHART
    Defence | 6-foot-4, 197 pounds
    Edmonton Oil Kings (WHL)
    The Lightning addressed one need by trading for goalie Anders Lindback. This helps another, though the pick is not about need. The son of Paul Reinhart (12th overall, 1979) might be the best player left on the board. (Bray)

    11. WASHINGTON: RADEK FAKSA
    Centre | 6-foot-3, 202 pounds
    Kitchener Rangers (OHL)
    The rangy Czech could be the perfect complement to the Caps’ current top two centres — finesse Swedes Nicklas Backstrom and Marcus Johansson. (Love)

    12. BUFFALO: JACOB TROUBA
    Defence | 6-foot-2, 193 pounds
    USA U18 (USHL)
    Set to play at the University of Michigan this fall, having already appeared with the U.S. at the world junior championship. Strong, physical, with an ability to handle the puck. (Fitz-Gerald)

    13. DALLAS: ZEMGUS GIRGENSONS
    Centre | 6-foot-2, 198 pounds
    Dubuque Fighting Saints (USHL)
    After spending six of their last 10 draft picks on defencemen, the Stars will turn to this talented two-way centre who can play in all situations and dish out a big hit when the team needs it most. (Yasvinski)

    14. CALGARY: BRENDAN GAUNCE
    Centre | 6-foot-2, 205 pounds
    Belleville Bulls (OHL)
    Gaunce spent last off-season with former NHLer and fitness expert Gary Roberts and developed into a point-per-game player with Belleville this season, utilizing his size and impressive shot. (Scianitti)

    15. OTTAWA: MATTHEW FINN
    Defence | 6-foot-0, 195 pounds
    Guelph Storm (OHL)
    Like former Guelph alumnus Drew Doughty, Finn is an offensive-minded defenceman who scored 48 points last season. He would look nice next to Erik Karlsson on Ottawa’s power play. (Traikos)

    16. WASHINGTON: OLLI MAATTA
    Defence | 6-foot-1, 183 pounds
    London Knights (OHL)
    Someone always slides for reasons unknown, but Washington would be happy to take a flier on the eighth-ranked North American skater. He would be the highest drafted Finnish defenceman since Joni Pitkanen went No. 4 in 2002. (Spurrier)


    REUTERS/Mathieu Belanger
    Someone always slides for reasons unknown, but Washington would be happy to take a flier on Olli Maata (far left).
    17. SAN JOSE: HAMPUS LINDHOLM
    Defence | 6-foot-3, 196 pounds
    Rogle Jr. (Sweden)
    Having had just one first-round pick since 2008, the Sharks are lacking in the prospect department. Lindholm is a bit of a sleeper, making a late surge up the rankings. (Barrs)

    18. CHICAGO: THOMAS WILSON
    Right wing | 6-foot-4, 203 pounds
    Plymouth Whalers (OHL)
    Like so many elite prospects this year, he battled injury (sprained MCL among them), but still won notice for his hard-hitting, workmanlike approach. He is about size and strength more than pure skill. (Valois)

    19. TAMPA BAY: SEBASTIAN COLLBERG
    Right wing | 5-foot-11, 176 pounds
    Frolunda (Sweden)
    A second defeceman is a possibility for Tampa Bay, but Collberg, the third-ranked European skater, was playing in the Swedish Elite League at 17. And the Lightning have had some success with undersized right wigers. (Bray)

    20. PHILADELPHIA: ANDREI VASILEVSKI
    Goalie | 6-foot-3, 204 pounds
    Ufa (Russia Jr.)
    The big Russian was a standout at the world juniors, and the Flyers desperately need a reliable goaltender. They always need a reliable goaltender. Plus, Ilya Bryzgalov can mentor him. No, wait … (Stinson)

    21. BUFFALO: MARTIN FRK
    Right wing | 6-foot-0, 204 pounds
    Halifax Mooseheads (QMJHL)
    Limited to 34-regular season games due to concussion, and has admitted he needs to work on his skating, but Frk has top-six talent for a team willing to mold his raw skill. (Fitz-Gerald)

    22. PITTSBURGH: MALCOLM SUBBAN
    Goalie | 6-foot-1, 178 pounds
    Belleville Bulls (OHL)
    You might recall the Penguins struggled a bit in the goaltending department this spring. Also, their best prospect in net is … well, they don’t really have one. (Love)

    23. FLORIDA: OSCAR DANSK
    Goalie | 6-foot-2, 186 pounds
    Brynas Jr. (Sweden Jr.)
    His strong technique, quick reflexes and calm demeanour could make him the best goaltending pick. With an aging Jose Theodore and not a lot in the cupboard, the Panthers will need all the help they can get. (Yasvinski)

    24. BOSTON: DALTON THROWER
    Defence | 6-foot-0, 195 pounds
    Saskatoon Blades (WHL)
    With Dougie Hamilton likely to move up to the big club this year, Thrower could be the new project. He was in the top 10 in scoring among WHL defenceman this season, and also showed an aggressive edge with 103 penalty minutes. (Scianitti)

    25. ST. LOUIS: DERRICK POULIOT
    Defence | 5-foot-11, 186 pounds
    Portland Winterhawks (WHL)
    Some say Pouliot’s numbers — 59 points in 72 games — were inflated because he plays on a top team. But he is still considered one of the purest skaters in the draft. (Traikos)


    Tyler Anderson/National Post
    Our guess for the Penguins? Goaltender Malcolm Subban. You might recall the Penguins struggled a bit in the goaltending department this spring. Also, their best prospect in net is … well, they don’t really have one.
    26. VANCOUVER: SLATER KOEKKOEK
    Defence | 6-foot-2, 184 pounds
    Peterborough Petes (OHL)
    There is almost no chance this solid if unspectacular defenceman falls this far but if he does, the Canucks will welcome the chance to pair him with Chris Tanev for many years to come. (Spurrier)

    27. PHOENIX: TOMAS HERTL
    Centre | 6-foot-2, 200 pounds
    Slavia Praha (Czech Republic)
    A consistent goal scorer has been on Phoenix’s shopping list for years, and if he falls this far, Hertl is a no-brainer. (Barrs)

    28. N.Y. RANGERS: STEFAN MATTEAU
    Centre | 6-foot-2, 210 pounds
    USA U18 (USHL)
    His father, Stéphane, won a Stanley Cup with the Rangers in 1994. Born and raised in Chicago, the younger Matteau will take his potential as a power forward to the QMJHL this fall. (Valois)

    29. NEW JERSEY: LUDVIG BYSTROM
    Defence | 6-foot-1, 208 pounds
    Modo Jr. (Sweden Jr.)
    If one of the top goalies is still available Friday — say Andrei Vasilevski — that would be the pick. But Bystrom, a strong-skating, puck-moving defenceman, is moving up boards.(Bray)

    30. LOS ANGELES: HENRIK SAMUELSSON
    Right wing | 6-foot-2, 220 pounds
    Edmonton Oil Kings (WHL)
    A championship team with a young core in place can afford to take chances. Ulf’s kid isn’t rated this high, but he is a big, rough winger. Plus, he has those bloodlines. (Stinson)u

    Meh..........I'm not going to predict if a player is a future HoF'er after two years..........that being said with Markov back and Therrien at coach look for Subban to get more involved........Therrien is a huge Subban fan.
